If you live in a house or apartment, chances are that you have concrete somewhere on the property, whether it is in the driveway, paths, swimming pool, kitchen, or garage. Most people probably don’t realise that their concrete needs repair and maintenance, just like any other material. Concrete is not as tough and durable as many people believe. Contrary to popular opinion, concrete is actually a porous material, and can easily absorb water, oil, and other liquids if it is not properly protected by a concrete repair product such as concrete sealer.
If water is absorbed into the concrete, it can cause the concrete to expand and literally tear apart your driveway. Simply having a waterproofing concrete sealer applied can protect you from this expensive damage.
There are a huge number of concrete sealers available today. Some are solvent (petroleum) based, while others are acrylic (water) based. You can choose from clear or coloured concrete sealers as well. Concrete sealers can also act differently. Some concrete sealers penetrate into the concrete itself, while others form a protective cover on the surface of the concrete. It is always a good idea to contact a professional company such as Rhino Linings to advise you on what kind of concrete sealer will be best for your needs.
Having a concrete sealer applied on concrete areas where water is likely to seep in is a very good way to protect the concrete. A sealer such as Rhino Linings Tuff Stuff will make the concrete waterproof, and will also fill in any cracks in the concrete surface. A concrete sealer like Tuff Stuff can be used on nearly any surface, indoors or outdoors. It is best to apply a concrete sealer as soon as possible to prevent the need for future repairs, and should be reapplied every three to five years for optimum protection.
