A good concrete patio sealer keeps new surfaces looking great for many years to come and improves the appearance of existing patios, especially if they are topically colored. If sealing isn’t already a routine part of your concrete patio maintenance plan, here’s what you need to know to get started.
Even though concrete patios aren’t exposed to vehicle traffic or deicing salts, like concrete driveways are, they still take plenty of punishment. Backyard barbecues, outdoor campfires, heavy foot traffic, and unrelenting sunshine can cause patios to fade, discolor, and abrade if you leave them unprotected.
The reasons for sealing a concrete patio are similar to those for waxing a car, wearing sunscreen, or applying stain repellent to new carpeting. It’s done to enhance the appearance, keep the color from fading due to sun exposure, and protect it from stains and moisture absorption.
