Poured concrete is a popular choice for a home driveway surface. One thing to keep in mind is that concrete is a porous material, and it can absorb liquids. Here in Lexington where winter temperatures routinely dip below freezing, that means liquids inside the concrete can expand and damage the surface. Salts, fertilizers, and oils can also be harmful to concrete over time.
Proper concrete sealing will help prevent the penetration of liquids for concrete slabs and pavers, as well as reducing the risk of mold buildup. In addition, the concrete sealers we use add tensile strength, which helps concrete hold its form and not chip or crack as easily. Making a small investment in concrete sealing will help you avoid the major cost of concrete replacement.
