Increase the Longevity of your concrete.
No matter what kind of surface you have, a driveway or patio area, concrete sealing is always beneficial.
Depending on how concrete is laid, it is susceptible to damage which can cause it to crack, spall and flake.
Most sealers keep your concrete looking new while smoothing and preserving color.
Protection from Mildew
Concrete has a tendency to absorb moisture, due to its porous material. This can cause mildew to grow in your concrete.
First, we prepare your driveway, to ensure it is clean. We will be placing grout inside your concrete seams in order to keep water and mildew from creeping underneath to ruin your concrete. Grout does not seal well in dirt, so we ensure your concrete seams are clear of debris.
Next, we tape the seams of your driveway to make sure that you get a nice clean finish on your grout line. Grout is a sticky business and if not done properly it can smear all over your driveway. It is similar to painting.
The next step is to administer the grout into the cracks. We use a squeeze gun to ensure a nice uniform finish.
A plastic spoon is used to level the grout. We concave the seam because grout rises as it dries. This concave method allows the grout to expand and seal the crevice properly.
The tape is slowly removed and the grout is left to dry.
After the grout has dried, we spray the concrete sealant onto your driveway. We use deliberate, steady strokes to provide a smooth and uniform finish.
The final step is to wait for the sealant to dry. This will take a day, but it is worth it. Your driveway is now protected from water, mildew and looks great!
