What types of concrete should be sealed?

If you reside in a region where there are freeze-thaw cycles, you should seal your concrete. Parts of California are included in this. If you want your concrete to repel stains, decrease dust, provide optimum abrasion resistance, preserve the most appealing appearance (particularly if you’ve stained it), or reduce abrasion, you should seal it.

What are the ramifications of not sealing my concrete?

Damaged, discolored, and damaged concrete are all possibilities. Remember that, despite its strength, concrete is porous and readily absorbs liquids. It can be harmed if anything is poured on it, from oil to fertilizer to salt, if it is not sealed.

How much does it cost to seal concrete?

It varies depending on the work. Larger areas, of course, will cost more. The type of sealant you select may have an impact on the cost. The pricing will be affected if you want the concrete tinted beforehand. We can offer a more detailed price if you call Fuller Concrete Staining at 310-944-9099.

How will the concrete seem once it’s been sealed?

It is dependent on the type of sealer you select. Because it penetrates deep into the concrete, a chemically reactive sealer will be virtually undetectable. You’ll get a high-gloss, wet finish if you use a solvent-based acrylic resin sealer. A water-based acrylic resin sealer will give you a stain effect. In a nutshell, the choice is yours!

Is it possible for me to seal my concrete myself?

It is not something we recommend. In many situations, it will end up costing more to seal it yourself than to hire the professionals. Why? Because you’ll need to purchase not only the sealant, but also specialized tools that are pricey. When you hire pros, you can rest assured that you will get the finest results available.

When should concrete sealant be applied?

It is dependent on the sort of sealant that you intend to apply. If you use an acrylic-resin sealer, you may start sealing as soon as the concrete can support the weight of the person doing the sealing. Others demand that the concrete be allowed to cure for at least 28 days.
