When it comes to concrete beautification and restoration in San Diego, nobody does it better than Goonst Hardscapes. We know all about cement sealing, so we wanted to give you a few tips.When your cement driveway, sidewalks, patio, garage floor, and entryway was constructed new, the builder sealed the cement after it cured. But this sealant doesn’t last forever.

How long has it been since the cement was sealed at your home? Most won’t know, so you’re not alone if you don’t.

Cement Sealing To Protect Your Investment

There are many things that can damage concrete if it is not protected with a good sealant. Over time, the weather will wear off the seal. Once it’s gone, the concrete is vulnerable to damage. It needs to be sealed at all times to protect the surface from moisture, scratching, and stains.

A cement surface will last much longer if protected by sealant. Concrete is porous. If you look at it under a microscope, you’ll see jagged edged pores everywhere. The cement will start to degrade unless it stays sealed. Your driveway, walkways, and other structures are an investment. Make them last as long as possible with cement sealing.

You Have Choices -Decorative Cement Sealing

Don’t think that your concrete has to be left as is with a clear sealant. The surface can be restored if there are any cracks, scratches, or chips. A decorative cement sealant can be used instead of leaving it gray.

It can also be stamped or stained with a unique pattern. It can be transformed to look like stone, granite or marble. Metallic color can be applied for an upscale, contemporary look. Your concrete surfaces are a blank canvas waiting for new color and design!

Always Seal After Cleaning

Sometimes the concrete is cleaned by those who don’t know how to use the proper techniques. Damaging chemical solutions are used to remove grease, oil, rust stains, and general surface grime.

Often, concrete cleaning will remove the sealant if it hasn’t already worn off. It’s important to reseal the cement after it’s been cleaned. Call Goonst Hardscapes and ask us about our San Diego cement sealing service.
