The Importance of Concrete Sealing

Concrete sealing shouldn’t be an extra; it is vital for the protection of concrete surfaces. Sealing a concrete driveway, patio, or other structure is like waxing your car or wearing sunscreen. It makes sense to protect your investment from the elements, like weather and the sun’s UV rays.

Professional concrete sealing can rejuvenate an old surface or protect your new surface for many years. Regular maintenance for concrete driveways, patios, and other surfaces typically include sealing after the concrete has cured, approximately 30 days, and every few years after. This will protect your concrete surfaces from deterioration, staining, and fading.

Outdoor concrete surfaces are exposed to a variety of harsh substances that can eat away at the surface or leave ugly stains: harsh weather, hot sun, freezing water, pet urine, oil, grass, dirt, leaves, lawn fertilizer, even tire marks. High-quality concrete sealing from professionals can keep harmful effects from ruining your beautiful concrete surfaces.

Professional Concrete Sealing for the Northwest Climate

Does water bead on the surface of your concrete, like a car with a good wax job? That means your sealer is working to protect your investment. When water no longer beads in the surface, it’s time for repeating your concrete sealing. Depending on weather conditions where you live and how much traffic moves across your concrete surfaces, you may need to reseal your driveway or patio frequently.

Revivify’s Cleaning and Concrete Sealing Process

Our concrete maintenance teams at Revivify Surface has experience with cleaning and sealing a variety of surfaces throughout Vancouver, Washington and Portland, Oregon. We take great pride in our work, as if we were protecting our own property. Our outstanding service makes homeownership easier.

Imagine not having to power wash your driveway or patio every summer. Let us help you protect your investment with our time-tested process that considers the existing condition of the surface, materials, and size. We will go over price estimates, time frames, and scheduling, as well as how our process will work for your particular project.

First, we thoroughly clean your outdoor concrete surfaces using pressure washers and special cleansers to remove dirt and buildup. Once the area is completely clean and dry, we apply a sealer that penetrates to bring back the material’s original luster.

There are three main types of sealers, each with specific applications.

  • Topical sealers are placed on the surface of the concrete and form a protective layer on indoor and outdoor applications.
  • Penetrating sealers actually penetrate the concrete and form a chemical barrier that shields against moisture.
  • Integral sealers are added to the concrete mix before it leaves the plant.

All our sealers are specially formulated to resist UV rays, moisture, mold, and mildew, making your outdoor surfaces last longer, and easier to clean when the time comes.
