It would be unrealistic to try and explain details of the chemical compounds used in preventing concrete damage in a single paragraph.
So we will state the causes first,
Generally two reasons, first if a concrete pour was late year, it may have froze prior to curing. Freezing will reduce tensile strentgh of concrete to about a 3rd of its rating.
Another cause of concrete damage is a bad pour the mix,the float, air inside the concrete leaving a porous set, water enters, freezes and pop.
A third cause that is often debated between concrete installers and Ice melt crews is the effect the chemicals in the De-Icer have on the surface of the concrete.
The remedy, apply a densifier and top sealcoat to the surface of the concrete. This will harden the concrete as well as seal any voids in the concrete keeping water out.
HighLighting : Parking Lot sealcoating
Proper maintenance of Asphalt Paving is a sound investment when services are performed at Commercial Industry Standards. Proper methods of maintenance will prolong the life of Asphalt Parking Lots an outline of service follows: Asphalt Sealcoating: 1. There are usually two types of companies offering asphalt sealcoating services, a commercially equiped and an ill equiped company. What seperates the two in a sealcoat application is the equipment and the products that a commercial unit is capable of applying.
It is this specific commercial equipment and commercial grade products that make up the difference between professional and layman. Sealing products may be formulated with several additives, however the base of a commercial product is sand, thats right sand...... sounds simple until you try to mix and apply it.
The small residential spray units usually dont have hydraulic agitation and its really nothing you can stir with a stick.
Driveway Sealcoating :
Should I apply sealcoating to my driveway ?.... Honestly that depends on several things, one of them being the condition of your driveway. Another consideration is your expectation of what driveway sealcoating will do. First lets consider the condition of your driveway are there cracks,large or small. Small cracks are generally caused by weight related stress and age of the asphalt. Larger cracks may be caused by the base of your driveway settling or possibly tree roots. There are several methods for sealing driveway cracks we use Hot Melt Crack Filler and or cut and patch when practical. Now on to your expectations,... well driveway sealcoating will not restore the asphalt. Driveway sealcoating is a preventitive application it can prolong the life of your driveway and it will have a nice clean crisp look, but the purpose is to protect your driveway from enviromental conditions ..the sun,rain and those leaking automobiles.
Now for the specials,discounted pricing, the specials are usually not so special and the discount relates more to the products then to the actual value pricing. We use the same methods and materials for driveway sealcoating as we do for commercial parking lot sealcoating.
Often times the specials are a little watered down and the preparation... well, cleaning and prepping oil and gas stains,correcting the cracks
and a 2 coat application is seldom seen with a special price.
Our pricing is based on the size and condition of your driveway. Actual materials to be used will be determined upon inspection of driveway. The minimum charge for our Driveway Sealcoating Service is is $300.00
