If you have a concrete driveway, it is important to prepare your patio for the coming high temps and winter. With rain on its way soon, there are some things that can hurt your concrete during this time of year! Whether you just laid down new or old cement in front of your house – when summer arrives it’s pertinent to protect from cold weather conditions like rain which could really do a number on the surface area.
You put so much time, effort, and love into the beautiful stamped concrete driveway that you spent hours of work on. Why let winter weather take it all away? Apply a protective sealer to keep water from seeping through your newly laid surface for years to come! The best way protects your freshly laid cement is by applying a waterproofing agent such as an acrylic polymer or epoxy coating before the snow begins falling this season. This will allow whatever precipitation falls during these long months to go right off without causing any harm whatsoever.
If your concrete driveway already has cracks, make sure they don’t worsen during the winter. And if you have a colored concrete driveway, then it’s important to upkeep that paint, or else the color will start fading and flaking!
If you have an older sealer on your concrete driveway, it could be time to reapply the coat. If so, consult with a professional for the best results!
Sealant lasts for a long time, but it’s best to keep applying because eventually the concrete will deteriorate and you’ll need another resurfacing job.
