BENEFITS OF SEALING A CONCRETE DRIVEWAY IN MICHIGAN
Concrete is costly so it’s important that you protect and maintain your investment. Surface Saver Sealer will keep your concrete driveway looking new for many years. Sealing a concrete driveway improves you’re the concrete appearance by protecting it from water penetration, organic & inorganic stains.
We recommend sealing after the concrete has cured and every few years after that as part of a regular maintenance routine. Surface Saver Sealer will help prevent efflorescence, which is a white powdery residue that can form on the surface.
Stain protection is another benefit of sealing a concrete driveway. Concrete will be subjected to many things in the environment that can leave unsightly stains on the surface like leaves, dirt, fertilizer, pet urine, oil & tire rubber. Surface Saver Sealer will keep these common stains from penetrating the surface of the concrete.
A third reason why you should seal your driveway is that it will reduce the chance of freeze thaw damage. Freeze thaw damage causes cracks or surface flaking and is caused by water penetrating the surface of the concrete and then expanding as it freezes. Surface Saver Sealer will keep water from absorbing into the driveway. Water will bead on the surface continually.
Surface Saver Sealer will enhance and protect your new or existing concrete driveway. When properly sealed or resealed the service life of concrete is greatly extended. Experts recommend using Surface Saver penetrating sealer outdoors because it sinks down into the concrete and has a more natural, matte finish. It is very important that sealers used on exterior concrete allow both air and moisture to pass through. A driveway sealer should be applied after the freshly poured concrete has cured. Most contractors wait 7 to 14 days, but the official time for curing of exterior concrete is 28 days.
