Concrete Waterproofing – Concrete Sealing
What could possibly be more frustrating than having to do the exact same improvement project to the same property over and over again? When the repair that has to be continually made is to water damaged concrete, each new repair represents an expense that could’ve been avoided and serves as proof for how important and how tricky it can be to seal concrete properly.
Yet, the seemingly endless rounds of concrete repairing are a type of brutal cycle that many property owners unfortunately find themselves in. the problem is that their concrete surfaces never get sufficient protection from water damage, despite all attempts. It takes a smart solution and a true expert to seal concrete effectively. Otherwise, the painful cycle of damage and costly repair remains ongoing.
Truly waterproof concrete not only protects the concrete from water damage, but it protects the owner from the stress and headache, wasted time, and lost money that such damage would bring about. For this reason, it should be a considered a high priority to seal concrete that’s at risk of water damage.
What Happens When Water Gets Into Unsealed Concrete?
Suppose a property owner is fully aware that some concrete surface they own isn’t waterproof, be it a basement wall or floor, a driveway, or a walkway, but they don’t see it as a serious situation, and so don’t bother to have the surface properly sealed. What can they expect?
Water is one of the most powerful forces of nature. It carves canyons and makes broad rivers where their once was none. It doesn’t take long for water to seriously degrade a concrete surface, cracking it, breaking it up, and causing it to crumble into naught.
Of course, the problem isn’t always the property owner’s negligence, as it’s not always easy to tell sufficiently waterproof concrete from concrete that’s not properly sealed – that is, until the moisture and damage starts to show. The air capillaries that form as newly laid concrete dries can serve as entryways for water, and even if an attempt has been made to seal the concrete, water left to have its way with the concrete is sure to cause damage.
In order to properly seal concrete, the capillaries left over from the drying process must be completely closed off by a sealant that’s strong enough to block the water and last. Moreover, only a true pro can apply a sealing system effectively.
The Frustrating Search for an Effective Solution
Finding really great concrete expert is no easy task. Neither is it easy to find the best product to seal concrete. Many sealants prove generally ineffective, as they either don’t provide a strong enough barrier against the water, or they simply don’t last. Many of those who work with concrete don’t take the time to find the best solution for their customers, or they simply don’t know what it really takes to seal the concrete right.
These problems are the underlying cause of many cases of concrete damage. The worst part is when other factors such as ice and weeds take advantage of the gateway left open by the water damage, speeding the rate of concrete degradation and making the problem increasingly worse.
The good news is that no longer are the hands of the property owner tied when it comes to protecting their concrete. In the Dallas-Fort Worth area, ATD Concrete Coatings is your ticket to truly waterproof concrete.
