Southeast Contractors Resealing Services
Bringing new life to your aging concrete driveway or patio!
The technique begins with a thorough cleaning of the driveway’s surface. The crack control joints will be cleaned and silicone re-applied if necessary after the driveway has cured. After that, the sealant layer will be put, which will completely protect the concrete underneath and restore its appearance.
Driveway Re-sealing uses an acrylic seal to bring out the full depth of color while also accentuating the release color, giving the driveway a more realistic appearance. The seal comes in three different sheens: gloss, medium sheen, and matt.
Some people believe that after a surface is resealed, it becomes bright and slippery. Not so! There’s no need to be concerned because the driveway treatment includes an anti-slip system that creates traction underfoot.
A reseal is essential for maintaining the driveway’s beautiful appearance. If the gap between seals is too long, weathering and regular wear might wear away at the top layer, threatening the concrete’s integrity. When the concrete is not protected, it might produce “plucking.” There is no reason for this to happen if the seal is applied on a regular basis. Minor defects will be removed and corrected during the sealing process.
Depending on the frequency of use, a pattern imprinted driveway should be re-sealed every 2-3 years.
WHY SHOULD YOU RESEALED YOUR PATTERNED DRIVEWAY?
While nothing in life is completely maintenance free, pattern imprinted concrete is as close as it comes in terms of pavement. The color hardeners greatly reduce the effects of wear from use, and the acrylic lacquer prevents moss or algae from growing on the surface, as well as dirt and stains from gathering and becoming embedded. As a result of all of this, your maintenance expenditures will be kept to a bare minimum.
So, why do I need to re-seal my driveway? The answer is simple: any driveway is subject to wear and tear as well as weather effects. Sealing on a regular basis might help to prevent undesired plant growth. Because there are no natural joints, pattern imprinted concrete is less susceptible to plant growth than other types of ground coverage such as paving. However, this is still a possibility because moss can grow into pores and other plants might take advantage of weak spots, causing cracks. Similarly, things such as oil, chemical de-icers and cleansers, and grit/salt that are likely to be found near and on your driveway can cause your pattern imprinted driveway to deteriorate. All of this can be avoided by resealing on a regular basis.
