Concrete Sealing in Stratford

Long-Lasting Concrete in Stratford

A concrete patio is a great addition to any home. It results in a huge boost to curb appeal and has an unbelievable return on investment. In comparison to other beneficial renovations the cost versus return ration is one of the best. Concrete patios, specifically, provide a lot in terms of versatility and durability. They’re a popular choice in Stratford, and at Empire Facility Management Inc we love to build them!

Concrete patios can be poured out in any shape, and can take on the appearance of other patio materials. On top of this, they can be made in any color. But, concrete can crack and warp. So, if you want your beautiful new patio to stay in the best shape, sealing is imperative.

The Details

You’d be surprised at how varied concrete sealers are. There are many different kinds, each best for a specific project. Penetrating, acrylic, polyurethane and epoxy—most available in a more eco-friendly water base, or less finicky solvent base. Some sealers have a tint to them, but most bring out the coloring in the concrete they protect.

Sealing concrete may not sound like the most difficult task, but having a professional company like Empire Facility Management Inc perform the task is beneficial. We have years of experience in Stratford doing a flawless job of building and sealing concrete patios—as proven by our positive reviews.

What is involved in the sealing process is as follows:

Cleaning the concrete

We are proud to admit, once we clean your concrete patio, you will not see a trace of dirt, debris, grease, or oil. We have equipment to assist in this process such as shop vacuums. We leave no stone unturned when it comes to cleaning.

Applying the Sealer

We apply two coats of sealer with two hours of drying time in between. It’s important that the sealer covers consistently without any pooling or bubbling.

If you have an older patio with remnants of old sealer on it, after the concrete is cleaned we remove this before applying the updated substance.

Solid Results

Applying sealer to your concrete patio yields tried and true results. With proper maintenance, a concrete patio can last up to 25 years. However, adding a sealer can extend its life by five to 10 years!

It is important to note that sealer must be reapplied every three to five years, but if this schedule is followed, you can look forward to enjoying your patio for decades to come.

Patios are high-traffic locations. Furniture is stored on them, they’re used for social gatherings, walked on, played on, and spilled on. Being outdoors, they are also subject to anything the elements can throw at them. Don’t let your patio succumb to damage over time. Seal it up and protect it so that you don’t have to worry about costly expenses down the road.
