Driveway Sealing

Driveway sealing is not just a luxury item! It is necessary to protect all your concrete, especially with our harsh Canadian winters. Driveway sealing goes a long way to extend the life of your concrete. Whether you’ve moved into a new house and need driveway sealing that will last a long time, or if you are simply hoping to refresh the appearance, we have the right products and expertise to help with your project and meet your budget.

Why seal your entire driveway?

Exposed aggregate and other decorative concrete driveways, more than any other concrete, are exposed to many damaging factors:

  1. First, there is UV damage from the sun. The daily presence of these rays will slowly cause UV radiation, which breaks down the polymers and other bond chains in the concrete itself, which may cause cracking or spalling, weakening the concrete.
  2. Second, in Alberta, we have more than 100 freeze/thaw cycles every year. In the winter, this means that there are more than 100 opportunities for water to seep into the pores and cracks in your driveway, freeze, and expand–causing cracks and spalling. While we can repair cracks and spalling as part of our driveway sealing services, it is better to prevent them with regular coating every 2-4 years.
  3. Third, salt damage. Because most cities in Alberta use salt for keeping the roads clear of ice, it is nearly impossible to prevent salt from getting onto the driveway. The chemicals in the salt interact with the chemicals present in concrete, which can crack concrete on its own, as well as intensify the damage caused by freeze/thaw cycles.

Get The Most Out of Your Property

Just like we need to wear sunscreen when outdoors, your driveway needs protection from what it is exposed to. Driveway sealing with a quality sealer every 2-3 years is critical. This will keep the concrete looking great for years to come, as well as several other key benefits:

  • Enhanced curb appeal
  • Stain resistance
  • Mildew prevention
  • Water, rust, and oil stain resistance

Product Options for Driveway Sealing: Which Sealer is best?

If this is your first time having driveway sealing done, you may have been doing some research online and calling companies about driveway sealing. As you may have noticed, there are dozens of options out there, and every driveway sealing company wants to sell you their “premium concrete sealer.” At Concrete Experts, we have done that research for you.

We recommend SureCrete’s HS200 LV Silane Penetrating Sealer, especially if you haven’t had driveway sealing in several years. This product does more than your average acrylic sealer; it contains Silane, which is an advanced molecule designed to penetrate and form a protective, oil-and-water proof barrier underneath the glossy acrylic layer. This is the best sealer for driveway sealing in our climate.

We also carry a normal, wet-look sealer for those customers that are on a budget! This is TK Brightseal 25% solids sealer. Ask our sales team about our price-match! You can also read the post on our blog about concrete sealers!
