Concrete is a popular choice due to its durability and strength. However, concrete is not completely impervious to the elements, and over time it can begin to crack, chip, or discolor. That's where concrete sealers come in. Sealing your concrete surfaces can provide a range of benefits that can help to extend the life of your concrete and keep it looking great. In this blog, we'll explore why it's good to seal your concrete surfaces such as driveways, walkways, patios, pool decks, and lanais.

Protection from the Elements

Concrete sealers protect your concrete surfaces from environmental factors and weathering. Exposure to UV rays, rain, snow, and freeze-thaw cycles can cause damage to your concrete over time. Sealers create a barrier that prevents water and other harmful substances from penetrating the surface of the concrete. This barrier helps to prevent cracks, chips, and discoloration.

Increased Durability

Concrete sealers can also increase the durability of your concrete surfaces. Sealing your concrete surfaces can make it more resistant to abrasions, stains, and other types of damage. This increased durability can help them last longer and reduce the need for repairs or replacements.

Enhanced Appearance

Sealing your concrete surfaces can also enhance their appearance. A good concrete sealer can help to bring out the natural color and texture of your concrete, making it look more vibrant and appealing. Additionally, some sealers can be tinted to add color to your concrete, or they can be stamped to create patterns or textures that mimic other materials such as brick, stone, or wood.

Easier Maintenance

Sealing your concrete surfaces can also make them easier to maintain. Sealed concrete surfaces are less likely to accumulate dirt, grime, and other debris. In addition, spills and stains are less likely to penetrate the surface of the concrete, making them easier to clean up. This can help to reduce the amount of time and effort required to maintain your concrete surfaces.


Sealing your concrete with a clear sealer such as ACRACLEAR™ or color tinted product like ACRATHANE™ can be a cost-effective way to extend their lifespan and improve their appearance. The cost of sealing your concrete surfaces is typically much lower than the cost of repairing or replacing damaged concrete. By investing in a good concrete sealer, you can help to protect your investment and avoid costly repairs or replacements in the future.

In conclusion, sealing your concrete surfaces can provide a range of benefits. By protecting your concrete from the elements, increasing its durability, enhancing its appearance, making it easier to maintain, and being cost-effective, a good concrete sealer can help to ensure that your concrete surfaces last longer and continue to look great for years to come.
