Expert Concrete Sealing, Lakewood NJ 08701 We all see the cracked and peeling flaky concrete everywhere. Why does this happen? Should this be happening to my new concrete!? What can I do to prevent it from happening? Of course the easy answer to your concrete problems is that the installation was not done properly. However, issues can come up even when the installation is done well...so now what? One of the worst things for concrete is salt. In the winter, we all throw down salt to melt the ice...but once the ice melts, the salt is still there and is eating away at the concrete. This is what causes a lot of the peeling we see. Another challenge for concrete is the constant freeze-thaw cycles that happen throughout the seasons. The concrete absorbs moisture...then when it gets cold the moisture freezes and expands, causing cracks in the concrete. When temps come down, the moisture thaws....then the cycle happens again and again...causing the cracks to get worse. Expert concrete sealing, Lakewood NJ 08701 is a great defense for these issues. We recommend a sealer that is not a coating, but rather is absorbed into the top layer of concrete. The sealer is designed to harden and concentrate the molecules in the top layer, thereby blocking out moisture from being absorbed. Additionally, it will make it harder for salt to eat away at it. Expert concrete sealing, Lakewood NJ 08701 can allow you to enjoy that fresh new look of concrete for many years to come.
