Extend the Life of Your Concrete with Professional Sealing by EverLine Coatings

Concrete is often used for its durability, versatility and low maintenance needs. However, just because it’s durable and low-maintenance doesn’t mean you can set it and completely forget it. Unsealed concrete is particularly vulnerable to staining and cracking because, despite its natural durability, concrete is also quite porous. Water, chemicals and other factors can take it from looking sleek and sharp to dull and damaged in no time, especially when you live somewhere like Twin Cities, where UV exposure in the summer and frequent freeze-thaw cycles in the winter can wreak havoc on it.

Thankfully, there’s a simple solution that helps keep your concrete surfaces looking great, whether they’re parking lots, decorative areas or patios. Sealing your concrete protects them from the wear and tear that can really do a number on their appearance and integrity. 

Concrete Sealing Services

By sealing your concrete, you can stave off this damage, prolonging how long your concrete surfaces remain in good condition and boosting curb appeal by preventing cracks and stains. On average, surfaces can go between 2 and 5 years between applications. But, because your concrete will last longer, you’ll reduce the need for costly repairs and maintenance over time.

What about indoor concrete? Foot and vehicle traffic, such as that experienced in a large industrial warehouse for example, can still put a lot of stress on your concrete, and sealing it can help mitigate the effect.

EverLine Coatings is here to help with extensive concrete maintenance services, including sealing. With our proactive CORE Quality System, we keep you in the know at every step of your project so you’re not sitting around waiting for us to return your call.

What Affects Concrete Surfaces?

Concrete surfaces

should be sealed

every 2–5 years. 

As stated, previously, concrete should be sealed every 2 to 5 years. The exact frequency depends a lot on several factors, including:

  • Climate: Climate matters a lot when considering how frequently to seal your concrete. In Twin Cities, frigid winter temperatures in the winter may necessitate more frequent sealing. As water seeps into the concrete, it can freeze, pushing apart the concrete and resulting in cracking. Plus, in the summer, Twin Cities experiences intense sunlight, putting concrete at risk of UV damage.
  • Traffic: Areas with high vehicle and pedestrian traffic should also be sealed frequently. Surface deterioration happens under such conditions.
  • Type of Sealer: Choosing the right sealer for concrete depends on several factors, including the concrete’s current condition, expected traffic volume and where it’ll be applied. The length of time you should go between reapplications depends on the type you choose.
  • Sealer Quality: You get what you pay for. Even among the same type of sealers, the specific brand can affect longevity. Opting for high-quality sealers often means that you’re saving money in the long run because you don’t have to reapply it as frequently.
  • Maintenance: Regular maintenance, such as pressure washing to remove staining can help extend the length of time between sealing. Leaving cracks and stains or other issues unresolved, on the other hand, can increase how often you need to reapply sealant.

If you’re unsure how frequently your concrete should be treated with sealant, we’re here to help. Contact us and we can evaluate the situation and give you a more specific answer that takes all factors into consideration. 

Types of Sealant For Twin Cities Cement Surfaces

Penetrating sealants enter the concrete surface to create an invisible bond that locks out moisture damage while leaving behind the surface’s natural matte look. They include densifiers and hardeners, which protect the surfaces from tire marks or create for a harder surface to polish. They’re used for exterior concrete surfaces, such as sidewalks and parking lots.

Surface sealants create a protective film over the top of the concrete. They’re typically used either inside where the concrete won’t face the elements or for decorative purposes.
