Brick Paver Sealer Concrete Driveway Patios Sealing

Waterproofing brickwork with concrete sealers which are coatings applied to concrete to protect it from erosion. They either block the pores in the concrete to reduce absorption of water and salts or form an impermeable layer which prevents such materials from passing.

Concrete sealing protects against erosion from rain water and protects the surface against oil and salt attack. Sealed concrete aids in keeping surfaces cleaner between washings, it repels water and impedes algae production.

Benefits of Brick Paver and Concrete Driveway Sealing and Waterproofing Brickwork

  1. Prevents aging or erosion of the surfaces due to regular cleaning maintenance
  2. Protects against the potential for surface cracking due to freezing-thawing of moisture in your masonry surface.
  3. Makes the surface easier to clean

Types Of Brick Paver and Concrete Surfaces We Seal

We primarily seal chimneys, driveways, sidewalks, patios, retaining walls and paving stone.  The surfaces that benefit most from sealing are exposed aggregate, regular concrete, and brick.

Type of Concrete Sealants

Depending on the surface requirements and your preferences, we choose the sealant that is most appropriate. The two types of high-grade water repellent sealants to choose from are

    1. natural and transparent, non-slip finish, solvent base
    2. shiny “glazed” finish, acrylic based.
      • Based on the sealant chosen, flat surface protection can last between 2-5 years.
    3. Or our favorite Earth Friendly Product  which penetrates deeply into concrete and masonry pores and gives up to 15 years service

Waterproofing Brickwork and Stone Chimneys
