Concrete finishing is not a necessity. In fact, many people choose to forgo this part of the process. Despite this, finishing a concrete job with a proper seal is vital to the longevity of the installation. In fact, it is even a good idea to periodically reseal a piece of concrete, especially if it is subject to persistent environmental stresses such as rain, temperature changes, and heavy items such as automobiles.

Increase the Longevity of Your Driveway and Floors with Concrete Finishing and Sealing

Sealing a Concrete Floor

A concrete floor will need to be sealed in order for it to remain impervious to stains and cracks. Inside the home, there are frequent threats to a floor’s integrity, with the most threatening being spills. With a well-maintained seal, any possible stains from food, beverages, or spills from a home workshop can be cleaned up with ease. This is the appealing part of a concrete floor, so it needs a proper finish. Once a floor is properly sealed, any stains or designs you’ve added to the floor are sure to remain intact for the life of the room.

Sealing a Concrete Driveway

A sealed driveway will be better able to resist oil stains on top of the crack-resistance inherent properties in sealed surfaces. An exposed driveway is more likely to be affected by weather and extreme changes in temperature. While Portland’s weather is generally a mild climate, it does receive a fair amount of rain every autumn and winter, so keeping regular maintenance of a drive way will help it resist environmental forces.

Sealing a Concrete Carport

Cars are heavy, and when they sit for hours or days on a concrete slab, the stress adds up and can erode even the best concrete finishes. While a good concrete contractor should be savvy enough to pour a durable slab, a newer home may find that its external concrete was poured on relatively loose soil. Even in the best scenario, sealing a carport’s concrete is a vital part of household care and maintenance. A carport with a professionally applied finish will be able to resist stains from oil and other substances far better than one without.
