Where Sealers are Used
Concrete countertops have to be water resistance to remain in good condition and for it to be durable. This is achieved by applying a concrete sealer. A sealer can make concrete countertops water-resistance and decrease maintenance costs down the road.
They offer a level of superior quality to concrete counter tops while making them waterproof at the same time. Usually, two to three coats of a concrete sealant needs to be applied on a pre-cast or custom-made concrete counter top. This application is done on site, as the concrete countertop is installed.
The sealant protects the concrete countertop from virtually all leaks and adds luster to the surface area. They are usually used on pavements, patios, driveways and virtually any other surface that works with concrete.
Sealing is both necessary and beneficial in various ways. It acts by strengthening the concrete surface on to which they have been applied. What does this mean for you? Easy cleanup of your area! If a sealer has been used on your driveway, you will notice how much easier it is to remove built up snow and ice from the walkway. Stains and spills on your kitchen countertop or patio that typically leave behind nasty in-erasable marks can be eliminated!
Sealers have a major incentive. They take very little time or effort to maintain and don’t have to be maintained as often. They are easy to use no matter if they are used in concrete driveways, patios or kitchen counter-tops. It takes about a week to apply two to three coats of the sealer, but it will be well worth it! A liquid wax shine and other simple clean up methods can then be used. In the basement, concrete sealers can do a lot of damage control. Sealing the gaps, cracks in the wall and joints will stop condensation and decrease mold growth and bad odors.
