After concrete is fully cured, the application of a concrete sealer is recommended for the following reasons.
- Provides protection against de-icing salts
- Resists mildew and surface staining
- Improves appearance
- Makes surfaces easier to clean
- Inhibits efflorescence (a whitish powder on the surface)
Due to the porous finish of exposed aggregate concrete, a surface sealer is highly recommended.
*Follow manufacturer recommendations for preparation and application.
