Concrete Sealing San Diego

Whether it’s a repoured driveway or a basketball court in your community park, concrete is a versatile and affordable material. 

Concrete includes three materials: aggregate (that is, gravel or rocks), water, and Portland cement. These components are combined and then poured. As the newly poured concrete dries and cures over time, these three materials become stronger together. The concrete curing process requires particular temperature and moisture levels to maintain strength and prevent cracking, although tiny cracks may appear regardless of the quality.

Sealed Concrete Increases Durability for Your Concrete Base

What is the best way to ensure your patio or garage flooring maintains its longevity for years to come? Epoxy coating provides a sealant for your concrete base, protecting the hardened mixture from damage through drops, spills, cracks, and sun damage. 

Here are just some of the benefits you can expect from coating:

Resistance

You may have noticed stains on your neighbor’s driveway from an oil change gone wrong or a leaky transmission. Some vehicle discharge is unavoidable, but with an epoxy coating, your concrete is protected and does not absorb these fluids. Not only that, but a sealed resin topcoat protects commercial flooring from heavy dropped objects and areas of high foot traffic.

Curb Appeal

Epoxy coating comes in various colors and patterns, and you can customize it for any design imaginable. But stamps can provide texture and replicate the appearance of brick, tile, stone, or river rock. Additionally, sealant provides a literal sunscreen for outdoor concrete, preventing a faded appearance.

Longevity

A small crack in untreated concrete can grow over time, splitting your garage in two. Once weed growth begins, the damage can increase in size and depth, and before you know it, it’s time to call contractors in once more. Concrete coating stops cracks before they start by protecting your concrete base from damage through vehicle traffic, heavy patio furniture, or flooding. 

How is Coating Applied?

Here are several steps to the process:

  1. Concrete is mixed and poured.

  2. The concrete must dry and finish curing. This process can take a few weeks.

  3. Once the concrete is ready, contractors utilize a diamond grinder to remove all minuscule imperfections on the concrete surface.

  4. Epoxy resin is mixed and poured over the concrete surface.

  5. Flooring is left to cure once more.

  6. The resulting sealant is colored or clear, based on the desired outcome.
