  • 1. Pool Deck Surfaces: Waterproof Coating for Your propertyDeckConcrete Driveway SealerConsultants Garages are subject to wear and tear whether we like it or not. Spillage and dropping oftools can actually damage the floor and this will lead to further destruction if the surface is nottreated right away. However this can be avoided if one is to use the garage with proper careand if the area is treated with protective coating such as in the case of floor sealers.In order to prevent deterioration of the garage floor, necessary steps must be realized. Thesematerials act as a coating agent therefore guarding the floor therefore it should have animpervious area. Chemicals, liquids, and moisture can no longer pass through the concretewhere they usually do their damage. For this reason it is only fitting to apply protectivecoating on the concrete floor so the garage will continue to become usable.There are four types of sealers and these are acrylic, polyurethane, epoxy, and penetratingsealer.Read MoreAcrylic sealer leaves a thin coating and for this explanation its the fastest drying sealeramong the the bunch. This sealer is applicable on both interior and exterior concrete. Assuch, you can be sure that the surface is protected against UV rays and moisture. But theonly problem is it wears faster than the other three coatings which is why one has to reapplyonce the coating disintegrates.The next impermeable coating is the polyurethane sealer. It is twice as thick as the acrylicthus it does not wear easily like the latter. It protects the surface really well but this woulddepend on the installation of the coating.Next concrete sealant is the one they call epoxy sealer. It is the toughest among the fourfloor sealer. However it easily turns yellow when subjected to direct sunlight which is why it isonly used indoors. To compensate, epoxy leaves an elegant and smooth finish.Finally, the penetrating sealer such as the silanes and siloxanes have the ability to penetratedeeper in the concrete to prevent accumulation of moisture. Similar to epoxy, polyurethanealso leaves a stained color when under direct sunlight. This coating even vanishes quicklyespecially under heavy traffic thus it is usually applied indoors or areas with less traffic.Concrete SealerThese are the four types of floor sealers available in the market. The best sealant woulddepend on the actual need of the garage owner. Each type has its pros and cons which iswhy the choice would depend on the user?s preference.
