Why Concrete Sealer is Important
Concrete is a porous material. So it easily absorbs fluids. And in climates where it fluctuates between freezing and thawing, those frozen liquids expand constantly and can destroy any concrete surface that is not properly sealed. And when concrete is not sealed, salt, fertilizer, oil and other household chemicals can damage and/or discolor it too.
So if you have a nice concrete patio or decorative concrete pavement, you will want to make sure that concrete is sealer properly. Doing so means it will stay in tip-top shape for a long time. The use of a concrete sealer turns the concrete into a more durable surface, since it adds protection.
Different Types of Sealers
Of course, there are various types of sealers. However, there are a few main ones to get acquainted with and those are integral, penetrating and decorative sealers. Here is a little more on those few sealers.
When manufacturing integral sealants, they get added to the concrete mix before leaving the plant. So the sealing starts immediately after construction.
A penetrating sealer penetrates the concrete and creates a chemical barrier that protects against moisture, water, and deicing salts. It leaves a natural finish without making any changes to the appearance of the surface. And most products are breathable, which allows for the escape of vapors. You commonly see penetrating sealers in outdoor applications, since they effectively protect against the elements. Replacement of this sealer is typically at least 5 years. So its lifespan is quite long, too.
Then we come to decorative sealers, which by the name you can see where we are going here. You can purchase these sealers in both solvent-based and water-based formulations. When you apply them, they typically leave a satin or shiny finish. Users buy this finish for the look and less so for the sealing capabilities. Many decorative sealers enhance the look and aesthetic of the surface. However, they also wear faster and thus need application more often. Due to these cons, you typically find this sealer used in home settings.
