Concrete comes in many different types and substrates that can be found both for both interior and exterior applications. There are Concrete Driveways, Vertical Brick Walls, Brick Paver Patios, Basement Floors, etc. Concrete is very porous and can be prone to degradation from Water, Ultra Violet Radiation, wear and tear, etc. By sealing or waterproofing your concrete surface you will add life and protection to your surface.
So why seal your concrete or brick? The main reasons to seal and waterproof your concrete are:
- Preventing hairline cracks due to water expansion during freeze/that cycles.
- Prevent water penetration and seepage of water through walls and foundations.
- Enhance the appearance by adding a gloss or darkening the overall color.
- Prevent damage from deicing salts during winter months.
- Provide protection from “Pitting” or “Spalling” or deterioration of the concrete causing chunks of the concrete to separate from the concrete structure.
