It’s easy to think of concrete as indestructible. It’s used (in various strengths) in the construction of bridges, buildings, highways, and anything else that requires long-lasting strength and durability, including residential homes. While it is one of the strongest materials used in construction today, it’s still recommended that unfinished concrete be sealed to add to its longevity and integrity, especially if it’s going to be outdoors and exposed to the elements.
There are many factors that can affect a concrete slab. Whether outdoors or indoors, sealing concrete helps keep it impervious to moisture, oil, grease, stains, and the general buildup of dirt, keeping it looking clean and new. Concrete is very porous, meaning that while it looks like a solid material, it has the ability to absorb moisture, which can often cause it to absorb dirt and stains, discoloring it over time. A concrete sealer will help to fill and “seal” all the microscopic holes, which will prevent it from absorbing any moisture and spills, preventing discoloration and deterioration over time. If being used indoors, it also allows the concrete to be cleaned and maintained more like an actual floor. Regular sweeping and mopping help to keep it looking brand new.
The better the sealant and the manner in which it’s applied, the better. That said, it’s important to have your concrete professionally sealed to ensure proper application and longevity. The knowledgeable and skilled concrete pros at Concrete Resurfacing Products will not only seal your concrete to keep it looking brand new longer, but they can also resurface your concrete to rejuvenate it prior to sealing.
