Do I need to seal my concrete?

Sealing your concrete is always a wise decision for longevity and protection.

We recommend concrete is sealed after installation and include an application of sealer in all our Residential Contracts. The sealer helps prevent lasting stains in concrete from oil, grease or wine etc which can become absorbed into porous concrete without a sealer.

The sealer will give your concrete a fresher look and is smoother to sweep clean in patio areas or carports.

How often do I need to reseal my concrete?

Sometimes it is a once off process. Some people never reseal their concrete preferring it to weather into a very natural look. However if you do want a reseal, it is easy to bring your paving back to looking like new again.

Panorama Concrete can do your resealing for you

Hiring a professional to re-seal your concrete will enhance the look and feel on your paving without you having to lift a finger. This is a great option if you are not the DIY type or you simply lack the time do the job yourself.

Resealing your concrete involves three stages:

  • A thorough, high pressure clean
  • A light acid wash (if necessary)
  • Application of the correct type of sealant for your concrete paving

You may never have to reseal again so ensuring the job is done correctly the first time by a professional is a worthwhile investment in your home.

Or, you can reseal it yourself.

If you enjoy getting your hands dirty and doing some work around the house, then you might want to try doing your own concrete sealing. With a little bit of elbow grease and a container of Avista Sealer, you can enhance the natural colour of your paving, protect against future stains and make sweeping the concrete an easier job.

We have a range of concrete sealers in our showroom in clear matt finish and assorted colours. We can provide advice and guidance on the process of resealing your concrete.
