Our advanced long-lasting sealant not only protects and extends the life of your concrete by eliminating water infiltration; it also stops weeds and grass from growing which creates an attractive clean finished look.
Why Sealing Cracks and Joints is Important
Cracks in your concrete are normal and expected however most people don’t realize that cracks and open joints need to be caulked to seal them up. Along with being an eyesore, cracks and gaps in the joints of your concrete allows water to sweep below the slab, which can cause the base to wash away and voids to form. Moisture below the concrete can also cause frost heaving when the ground freezes and expands.
- Slabs to sink & settle
- New cracks to form
- Weeds to grow between joints
- Less curb appear and property value
Repairing and Sealing Cracks in Your Concrete
Homeowners can purchase concrete caulk at their local big box hardware store and spend a weekend sealing cracks. The problem is, along with being a messy and time consuming project, the caulk sold in stores is a polyurethane material that doesn’t last too long. Polyurethane easily cracks when the concrete experiences any movement, which commonly occurs on exterior concrete. Also, after a year or so due to the sunlight the caulk will bubble, shrink and will need to be redone.
Concrete Hero to the Rescue! Our SuperFlex sealant is a premium silicone-based material not found in stores that is engineered to seal cracks. The superior adhesion, flexibility and weatherability far exceeds conventional polyurethane products such as NP1. SuperFlex will withstand years of UV exposure and continue to perform years after other sealants have failed. It will not yellow or discolor even after years of outdoor exposure. This product is custom formulated by the nation’s leader in silicone sealants so you can count on its consistent ability to provide long-lasting protection from water seeping below your concrete.
The process includes cleaning out the cracks and joints, installing a foam backer rod to fill voids and then injecting in the SuperFlex. It then gets tooled smooth and sand may be added to create a more natural look. Once all cracks and joints have been sealed with SuperFlex, you can rest assured your concrete can keep looking great for many years to come.
