Understanding Value of Concrete Sealing

Have you considered having the concrete surfaces of your home power washed and sealed? Maybe you are unsure if a concrete sealer is necessary? If so, you may be wondering what the benefits of concrete sealing are, and if it has a strong value for your home.

That moisture, during the winter, freezes, causing the concrete to expand and crack. In the spring, you are left with the aftermath: cracked concrete surfaces. However, a concrete sealer forms an invisible barrier over the top of your concrete. This keeps moisture and other damaging agents out; keeping concrete in prime condition.

Here are just a few reasons to consider concrete cleaning and sealing for your home’s driveway, sidewalks, patio, porches or pool deck:

  • Concrete sealing improves the appearance of your concrete. Not only will your concrete be smooth, with no cracks, but it will also be clean. The sealant also protects against staining, like oil spills. If you invest in concrete sealing, you will be able to worry less about oil drips or leaks from your car staining your concrete driveway.
  • Concrete sealing increases the longevity of your concrete. The cost of replacing concrete far exceeds the investment in regular power washing and concrete sealing. The sealant will keep away cracks and spalling, or pit marks caused by the freezing and thawing of your concrete during the winter.
  • Concrete sealing protects against mold and mildew. Because a sealant will provide a barrier against moisture, it naturally protects against moisture-loving contaminants like mold and mildew.
  • Concrete sealing adds value to your home. Clean, well-maintained concrete surfaces are a selling point of any home. For example, a cleaned and sealed driveway can add curb appeal.
