Desert climates like ours are notorious for being blisteringly hot and dry. While this may sound like a benefit for concrete installations, this extreme weather can still cause degradation to their structure. Concrete sealant creates a barrier between your home’s concrete surfaces and the desert heat.
When the area does experience rain or increased humidity, concrete sealing also protects the surface from moisture damage. And while temperatures don’t tend to fluctuate too much in Las Vegas, investing in concrete sealing can protect your concrete from cracks due to expansion and contraction with changing temperatures.
Concrete sealing is just as effective inside as it is outside. While your interior concrete installations may not be exposed to the intense desert climate, they are subject to more foot traffic, heavy objects, and chemical spills.
Consider your garage, for example. It’s where you park your car, store heavy boxes like seasonal decor, and keep chemicals like gas and oil. You may even use this space as an extension of your home, such as a gym with weights and heavy equipment.
Concrete sealing protects your concrete garage floors from cracking after dropping a weight, damage from spilled oil, and general wear and tear from foot traffic.
Speaking of foot traffic, one way to make concrete surfaces around your home easier and safer to walk on is by investing in concrete sealing. Concrete sealants have a slight grip to them because of their texture, so slip-and-fall risks are greatly reduced in areas where concrete sealing has been performed. This makes areas like your home gym, your concrete pool deck, and concrete walkways around your home safer and more comfortable to use.
Resealing Options and Maintenance
When it comes to deciding what type of concrete sealant to apply, we recommend an acrylic-based sealant. This is because it offers more protection than other types of concrete sealing systems. It allows your concrete to “breathe” still, but won’t allow moisture to seep through. It also offers more traction to make concrete surfaces safer to use.
In order to maintain your concrete, it should be resealed every two to five years. There are various factors that affect how often concrete sealing will need to be performed. These factors include:
- Weather conditions
- Amount of foot traffic
- Heavy equipment sitting on concrete
- Chemicals being stored on or near concrete
Whether you have stamped concrete, concrete coatings, random stone, or colored concrete, you can protect your investment from damage and wear and tear with routine concrete sealing. Contact Concrete Texturing to schedule an estimate today.
