Waterproofing concrete, and any surface that is water permeable, is essential in protecting it from the elements and ensuring overall lifespan. When concrete is exposed to harsh elements repeatedly, such as sun and water, it gets weakened. Weakened concrete leads to cracking, scaling, and other potential problems that can be costly. By sealing your concrete, you enhance its durability – which can prevent damage.
Reasons to waterproof concrete by sealing:
Maintain the integrity of your concrete floor or foundation by protecting it from natural elements such as sun, rain, or snow and spills such as oil and chemicals.
Concrete can last up to 30 years without repair if taken care of. Sealing concrete can protect it from damage that will cause cracks and crumbling.
Sealing concrete hardens it, and stronger concrete is more durable. It has a more remarkable ability to withstand daily wear and tear without showing damage.
#4 Mold Prevention
Concrete is a porous surface made receptible to moisture. If concrete stays wet for a long time, mold and mildew can form, leading to safety concerns and possible discoloration.
Sealing concrete is like insuring it and the structure it is supporting. Damage caused by repeated exposure to harsh elements can lead to cracks and crumbling. Those defects can cause costly repairs to the concrete and the supporting structure.
Waterproofing is perfect for:
- Balcony repairs
- Below grade waterproofing and damp proofing
- Traffic/deck coatings
- Elastomeric coatings
- Expansion joints
- Epoxy crack injections
- Roof coatings
- Sealant removal and replacement
- Water repellents
