One of the reasons that concrete is so often used as flooring in high traffic areas is because it is so durable. That said, there are still steps that can be taken to ensure that it last as long as possible. Staining your concrete is a great way to add unique color to it, and sealing your concrete is a great way to keep your concrete looking great for years to come.

What exactly does concrete sealing do?
If you leave the concrete bare, it will be vulnerable to damage from abrasions. It can also be damaged when exposed to chemical, oils, water, etc. If it does get damaged via abrasion, then it can look worn out and old. It can even cause dust to form. When you seal the concrete, the concrete becomes less absorbent. This reduces the chances that it can become stained and it also adds a layer of protection to prevent abrasion.
What does concrete sealer look like?
When you work with Fuller Concrete Staining, we will generally use a commercial grade sealer that has a satin finish. This results in a beautiful color-enhancing look but is not too glossy. On the other hand, if you want that super-glossy look, then we can do that too. There are other options, including penetrating concrete sealers, that won’t change the way your concrete looks at all. If you want plain concrete that is protected then a penetrating sealer is likely the best bet.
How long will it last if I seal my concrete?
It depends on the product you choose. It also depends on whether or not you had it professional cleaned before applying the sealer. Finally, it will depend on how the surface is used. We will clean your concrete thoroughly and apply the right sealant for the level of wear and tear your floor goes through. You can count on us to use renewable sealers so that your floor can be renewed as the years go on – without having to pay for a brand new service.
How do I decide which concrete sealer is best?
There are so many options on the market that it can be hard to figure out which one is right for your needs. We recommend working with an experienced contractor. For example, at Fuller Concrete Staining we know all the options and we know which ones work on various floors and for various needs. We can listen to your wants, your needs, and your preferences. We’ll then present the options so that you can make the most informed decision.
