Concrete Sealing by Matts Island Construction
Concrete Patios That Last
When you build a patio in the front or back of your home, your status in the neighborhood rises. A patio adds curb appeal and resale value—it’s a proven fact! Patios are great spots to set up your outdoor living space and entertain guests when the weather allows for it, and if you cover your patio, it can stand up to the weather and be a benefit to you all year.
Concrete patios are a great option for any client. They can be sleek and modernistic or stamped to mimic natural stone. For the funkier customer, they can take on many colors and designs to express your unique vision!
Whether you have a previous concrete patio that needs some TLC or you’re looking to have a new one built, at Matts Island Construction we’re the team to do it—and part of this process is making sure your patio lasts by sealing it properly.
Concrete may look like a pour-and-go solid material, and that’s partially true. But, to get the best results from concrete, it needs to be sealed. This process helps it to resist damage, corrosion and staining. One type of damage concrete is particularly susceptible to is cracking from being poured in freeze-thaw regions of the country.
Sealers protect from all these possibilities, and can even enhance the colors of the concrete.
These sealers bind and “penetrate” the concrete to apply invisible, breathable protection.
Water or solvent based, acrylic sealers create a thin film to resist moisture and enhance color.
Water or solvent based, polyurethanes create a thick film and protects from scuffs, and chemical abrasion.
Also resistant to scuffs and chemical abrasion, epoxies provide a glossy finish and can be pigmented!
Don’t install a beautiful patio to just have it fall into disrepair. Seal it properly and enjoy it for decades!
A Simple Process, Professionally Executed
Applying sealer sounds simple, but it takes technique. First the concrete is cleaned, then the sealer is poured over.
When you hire Matts Island Construction, we will bring the equipment to clean so deeply you won’t see a speck of dust. And when it comes to applying the sealant, we will ensure it’s smooth, covering your patio consistently, without pooling or bubbles.
