Why Do You Need a Concrete Sealant in Maryland and Delaware?
When water seeps into the pores of concrete and freezes, it expands about 9 percent (according to cement.org). This expansion produces pressure in the pores of the concrete, weakening it. When water freezes and thaws repeatedly, it cause internal destruction and pitting of the surface.
Additionally, since concrete is porous, chemicals such as oil, gasoline, antifreeze, road salt, fertilizer, and others can stain and damage it. A concrete sealant will protect it.
How Can You Tell If Your Concrete Is Sealed?
To determine whether your concrete is sealed, pour water on it. If your concrete darkens, it hasn’t been sealed. If the water forms beads on top of your concrete, it has been sealed.

What makes our Concrete Sealer better?
Our sealer chemically alters the concrete’s surface by glassifying it to create a clear, waterproof resistant membrane. This is in contrast to acrylic sealers that merely create a film on the concrete surface that can change the appearance and texture of the concrete. Our sealer does not alter the appearance or texture.
Our sealer is fully compliant with federal and local VOC laws, making it an environmentally friendly sealing option.
The sealer should be re-applied every 3 to 5 years for optimal performance.
