The Pros of Sealing a Concrete Patio

There are many advantages to sealing your concrete patio, including:

  • Improve the color and add shine We offer a wide variety of sealers and can even offer stains that can help change the color of your patio altogether. Whether you want it to fit in or stand out, we can offer the right option. You can choose from various gloss levels too, from none to high gloss.
  • Improves the ability of your concrete to repel moisture. One of the main reasons people choose to have their patio sealed is because it prevents the pores of concrete from letting moisture in. This can also help prevent spalling caused by freeze-thaw cycles, and can help prevent mold or mildew from growing on your concrete patio.
  • Your patio is likely to last longer. If you seal your patio, you can expect it to be more difficult to damage. This means that it will last longer than if it is not sealed. It also helps make any color you add fade-resistant and helps increase its lifespan as well.

The Cons of Sealing a Concrete Patio

Of course, there is no such thing as a process that works for every surface and every situation. Some of the cons of sealing a concrete patio include:

  • Slippery surface. If you chose a high-gloss sealant, it can be slippery when it is wet. The good news is that we can use a sealant that helps make the area slip-resistant by adding a little bit of texture.
  • It is not permanent. To keep it working as well as possible, sealants need to be replaced every two years. However, sealants can be reapplied without removing the older sealant so the process is relatively simple.
  • Some sealants are expensive. There are many sealant options available so you are sure to find something in your price range. That said, if you work with a company who just offers a single option, it could be pricy.
