How A Sealer Can Make All the Difference
Even non-professionals can spot the difference of concrete that has a sealer compared to those that do not. One main difference is the exposure of scratches and marks, as well as a more natural looking concrete.
Types of sealers include:
- Acrylic: Ideal for easy applications, acrylic sealers can be used on both exterior and interior surfaces because they provide protection against chloride and water.
- Epoxy: If you’re looking to create a glossy finish, an epoxy sealer is the way to go. Epoxy is harder than acrylic and is good for surfaces like countertops.
- Penetrating: A penetrating sealer will help protect against moisture and extreme conditions, which is why it’s useful for exterior concrete. The result will look natural and matte.
