Concrete Sealing and Finishing
Maintaining concrete surfaces is crucial for their longevity and appearance. Among the most important aspects of maintenance is sealing, which is critical to safeguarding against environmental factors such as temperature changes, precipitation, and vehicular traffic. The frequency at which concrete should be sealed can vary based on the amount of exposure to these factors. At Seattle Concrete, we offer specialized finishing and sealing services for driveways, carports, and indoor floors to ensure they remain in optimal condition for years to come.
Concrete finishing is a process that involves not only enhancing the aesthetic appeal of a surface, but also strengthening it and guarding against damage, stains, and cracks. Unfortunately, some individuals choose to skip this step to save time and money, which can prove costly in the long run. A smooth, durable, and visually appealing slab will not only improve the overall appearance of a property, but also increase its value.
Interior concrete flooring is a popular choice for many homeowners and businesses due to its durability, low maintenance, and aesthetic appeal. However, these benefits can only be fully realized with proper finishing and sealing. Unfinished concrete floors can be difficult to clean and are susceptible to staining, but a well-maintained seal allows spills to be easily wiped up and stains prevented. Moreover, finished concrete floors preserve any added colors or designs, such as dye stains or paint. This is especially crucial for decorative concrete floors where vibrant color is an essential aspect of the design.
Driveways and carports are also subject to weathering and wear from vehicular traffic. Regular sealing of concrete driveways and carports helps to maintain their strength and make cleaning easier by preventing spills, dirt, and dust from sinking into grooves and stains. The Pacific Northwest region's extreme temperature fluctuations and heavy rainfall create an ideal environment for fungi, moss, mud, and debris to accumulate on concrete surfaces. Regular sealing can help protect against this, prolonging the life of the concrete.
For concrete carports, the added weight of vehicles can exert additional pressure on the surface, causing even well-finished concrete to erode over time. This is particularly true if the carport was poured on relatively loose dirt, which can cause problems down the road. Routine finishing and sealing is an essential aspect of maintenance and household care for carports, as it resists stains from oil and other substances, making them easier to clean.
