5 Benefits of sealing your concrete floor, natural stone and pavers
There’s always one house on the block that stands out. You know that house with the amazing lawn, perfect walkways and beautiful driveway? We’re not going to touch on how to turn your grass into the envy of the street, but we are going to let you in on the secret to making your concrete, natural stone and pavers look great all year round. Then it’ll be your house that starts to turn heads.
So, what’s the secret? A quality sealer can help with that.
Here are 5 benefits of using a floor sealer:
Shiny new look
A sealer can make your surface look shiny and new, if that’s your desired look. It can certainly change the appearance of your concrete, natural stone and pavers.
Eventually, brickwork and concrete does fade. That beautiful red colour you paid for, can soon turn into a dull orange without the proper treatment and care. This has a lot to do with the effects of the sun’s ultraviolet rays. The constant bombardment from up above will fade the colour over time. The good news is that there’s something you can do to prevent it from happening – a surface sealer. A good sealer will create a barrier between the surface and the harmful effects of the sun. Applying a quality sealer will ensure your walkways, driveway, patio areas and pool surrounds will keep their fresh look for years to come.
No matter how hard you try to prevent it, there’s a good chance oil will wind up on your driveway at some point. Caked in oil and grease will make your driveway standout for all of the wrong reasons. Once oil works its way below the surface, it’s almost impossible to get rid of it. In this case, an ounce of prevention really does go a long way. A sealer creates a blockade that prevents the oil from getting under the surface in the first place – that makes it simple enough to clean off before any permanent damage can happen.
The same principle that stops oil from getting underneath the surface also applies to water. That barricade that the sealer produces will prevent water from seeping into the pores of your concrete, natural stone and pavers. If water gets beneath concrete slabs and tries to escape, the coating will lose adhesion. It can then get distorted, peel, cause air bubbles and simply deteriorate.
Protection from chemical erosion
There are many things can damage hard surfaces. We’ve talked about some already such as oil, grease and water. There are also many chemicals and cleaners that can harm your surfaces as well. A sealer can form an effective protection against chemical destruction also.
If you have concrete, natural stone or pavers you’re proud of, applying a sealer is a great way to keep their appealing look for so much longer.
