Is Concrete Driveway Sealing Really Necessary?

driveway sealingIf maintained properly, concrete is one of those materials that can add significant value to a home, as well as increase overall curb appeal. It is not absolutely necessary to seal a concrete surface, such as a driveway, for it to perform well, and it’s true that some can last for years without being sealed. BUT, when it does start deteriorating, it’s usually too late to stop it.

There are many reasons for concrete driveway sealing – the main one being to keep it looking good for many years. Some other benefits are:

  • Cost-effective
  • Reduces cracking, flaking and spalling (breaking off in fragments)
  • Protects against stains and oil spills
  • Mildew and mold resistant

Like any other material or surface that is subjected to the elements, concrete can fail prematurely. That’s why driveway sealing is highly recommended. Oxidation caused by the sun’s UV rays starts breaking down concrete, resulting in flakes and chips on the surface, which ultimately reduces its lifespan. And, in colder climates, moisture that permeates into the concrete continually freezes and thaws, causing buckling, heaving, cracking or shifting. Mildew and mold can easily build up on concrete driveways that haven’t been sealed.

PS: One of the best sealing products on the market at the moment is Ure-Seal H20 which is a clear, high-performance urethane coating that can be used to enhance and protect any properly prepared surface for many years.
