We have all witnessed the damage the time and environment can put on concrete. Quite often one of the most important steps, curing and sealing, is overlooked in the project. However, you as the homeowner, have options. You simply need to visit your local hardware store and ask the question. I’m sure that they’ll tell you about the best concrete sealer that they have in stock. I call these “over-the-counter” sealants, but in the long run, you will need to reapply them at least twice a year. Does this really save you money?
Over the past 18+ years, we’ve tried many products, but what we found to be the best sealant for our concrete landscaping borders comes straight from the commercial end of the industry – Lambert UV Super Seal. You can’t get this at your local Home Depot or Lowe’s, we purchase it in 5 gallon containers directly from the manufacturer.
These products are applied at specific timing after the concrete has been placed (usually within 24 hours, but not immediately) and form a resin-layer that both, helps curing with the prevention of too much water loss and creates a film that leaves the project more durable and protects the beauty of the surface.
We’ve seen many of our competitors apply sealer immediately, as well as water-down their over-the-counter sealants so they can push it through their store-bought sprayers. But Curb Appeal Concrete Borders has invested money into commercial sprayers so that the product does not need to be watered down, it is sprayed directly on your finished product – usually within 24 hours of installation. You get your money’s worth with us.
Florida weather has a brutal effect on everything – including the concrete product. Without proper care, you will see mold, mildew and even tannin or rust water stains all over unprotected borders. By applying a proper sealant, your borders could last for years without the need for cleaning.
We have found this particular product to be the best in protection for your borders – keeping the elements from permanently attaching to your curbing. Curb Appeal Concrete Landscaping Borders will be happy to treat our newly installed borders with a protective barrier to keep your product looking great for years! Simply ask us!
