Advantages and Disadvantages of A Concrete Sealer
The Benefits of A Concrete Sealer
Applying a concrete sealer is one of the easiest ways to keep your concrete floors protected from daily wear and tear from activity. As technology and chemical formulas have improved, so has the cost effectiveness. There is little reason not to add a sealer to your concrete as we look at the disadvantages and advantageous benefits of adding and applying a concrete sealer.
Disadvantages to Unsealed Concrete
Concrete is porous. Several environmental factors can cause concrete that has not been sealed to suffer. Mold and mildew can build up and into concrete and cause it to age, crack, and fail. Concrete that is outside under the sun’s harmful heat and UV radiation can oxidize and bake the concrete into flaking and chipping easier. Frigid winter months can cause buckles, cracks, and shifting due to water moisture constantly cycling between freezing and thawing.
Advantages to Sealed Concrete
Adding an industrial concrete sealer is notably inexpensive and it can add value, protection, durability and further the life of the concrete. The advantages far outweigh the disadvantages. Not only will properly adding a concrete sealer slow down aging and weathering, it can also protect against staining, and add aesthetic visual appeal which can only bring more value to your property.
