Does your old concrete surface show signs of aging? While concrete is the most durable construction product available for your home, proper care is important for long lasting beauty and wear. Oxidization from the sun, rain and snow and freeze and thaw cycles deteriorate the life of a concrete driveway. Sealing helps prevent and slow down the process of driveway deterioration.

a) Pressure washing is available to brighten up your worn driveway, patio, etc.
a) Sealing provides preventative maintenance that creates a protective barrier between your concrete surface and salt
Is sealing your concrete worth the investment?
Yes, eventually, without treatment, a concrete driveway will spall, flake, crack and continue to until it must be replaced. Sealing has shown to slow down this process and extend the life of a concrete driveway dramatically, saving you thousands of dollars in replacement costs.
How will my driveway look after sealant?
Sealant will make the concrete appear wet. The sealant allows the concrete to repel water eliminating the damage water causes to your driveway surface. Sealant provides a protective barrier between your driveway and the natural elements in our environment that over time breaks down the concrete.
It is recommended by CCI to seal your concrete every year for the first 5 years of it’s life. Sealant during the first five years is most important for your concrete driveway, patio, etc.. to continue looking new.
If you are building a new home you can request CCI to pour all of your concrete flat work for your new home. CCI works with many home builders in the area and is the trusted choice for concrete flat work.
