Home Repair Tips for DIY Concrete Sealing

Are you Looking to Reseal your Concrete Soon?

Resealing your concrete or just sealing your concrete can help save you money down the road from protecting your home from costly repairs.  There are many different products that you can use to treat your cement and coat it.

There are somethings to consider before you purchase the product you would like to install.  If you have ever looked at a concrete floor that has sealant flaking off you may already know what I’m talking about.

Cheap concrete coating can look nice for a while, only to flake apart after the moisture in the concrete causes the sealant to crack and flake off.

Use Deep penetrating Sealant to preserve your home.

“Surface sealers, which include epoxies, acrylics, paints, stains, latexes, silanes, siloxanes, and polyesters are applied to the surface of the concrete. They don’t bond to the concrete and need to be applied every 1-5 years. While some surface sealers are referred to as waterproofing sealers, they don’t actually stop water or vapors. They trap then under the surface of the sealer and built up pressures eventually cause the sealer to flake off. “If you want the look of a surface sealer, such as the shiny look epoxies create, or the colorful look paint achieves, apply a permanent, deep-penetrating sealer first and then add a surface sealer to the top,” says Eric Schifone, a New England basement waterproofing specialist. “
