4 Things You Need to Know Before You Seal Your Concrete

There’s no question that concrete is extremely durable. In fact, that’s one of the reasons that it’s such a popular construction material. That said, it’s still a good idea to seal it with a high quality sealer. At Fuller Concrete Staining, we recommend that you stain your concrete if you want to both preserve the quality of your concrete and keep its color bright and vivid. Even if you don’t stain your concrete, it can still be worth your while to seal it.

To learn more about the concrete sealing process, and why it may be a great idea for you, read on. Then reach out to Fuller Concrete Staining at 310-944-9099 to get the process started.

  1. You should know what the purpose of concrete sealing is
  2. First of all, it’s wise to know exactly what concrete sealing does. Consider that your concrete that hasn’t been sealed can be damaged by abrasion or by being exposed to chemicals, oil, and even water. If your concrete suffers from abrasion damage, the result can be concrete that looks work, and dust can be created. If unsealed concrete is exposed to oil and other liquids, then it can be stained.

    On the other hand, a sealant keeps concrete from being so absorbent, which means it’s much less likely to become stained. It also increase the protection between the concrete and the elements. As a result, this layer of protection needs to be worn away first before any abrasion can hurt your concrete.

  3. You should know how sealed concrete looks
  4. When you work with Fuller Concrete Staining, it’s likely that we’ll start by applying a commercial grade sealer. Generally it comes with a stain finish. The result is a look that enhances the look of your concrete but isn’t super glossy.

    On the other hand, if you’re looking for a highly glossed look, then we can do that. The third option is a penetrating concrete sealer. This option won’t typically change the way your concrete looks at all. It’s the best choice for those who want a plan concrete but want the benefits of sealing.

  5. You should know how long concrete sealing will last
  6. This will vary based on the products we use and whether or not you had the concrete professionally cleaned before you had the sealer applied. How heavily the concrete surface is used will also affect how long the sealing lasts. When you choose to work with us, you’ll get a sealer that’s entirely renewable and that can be refreshed as time goes on.
