Boston Concrete Sealing: Achieve the Look You Desire


Boston Concrete Sealing: Achieve the Look You Desire

There are several reasons to consider concrete sealing in Boston. For example, if you are from Massachusetts, you are most likely familiar with the cold climate that subjects buildings to freeze-thaw cycles. With such occurrences, it is not uncommon for concrete to crack, scale, and eventually crumble. Concrete sealing helps to prevent these things from happening.

Beyond cold season protection, MA concrete sealing from Abbot Building Restoration also provides resistance against abrasion, chemical reactions, discoloration, and staining. Now that the importance is evident, let us move on to the application and achieving the look you desire for your concrete surface.

Let’s talk sealers and aesthetics.

Typically, most chemically reactive sealers are virtually invisible. However, if the goal is to achieve significant color enhancement with a high-gloss appearance, solvent-based acrylic resin sealers and epoxies will do just that. Likewise, water-based acrylic resin sealers provide moderate color enhancement with satin finish whereas urethanes range from matte to gloss. Another bonus is that many sealers, regardless of the type, can be colored with translucent or opaque tints.



While there are several other forms of sealer, the above mentioned tend to provide the most significant benefits and largest customization options for exterior concrete sealing. That said, you will also want to be sure that you utilize a penetrating concrete sealer.


What is a penetrating concrete sealer?

A penetrating sealer does what the name implies – penetrates the concrete surface to form a bond within. This bond then protects against moisture penetration and, ultimately, potential damage from the freeze-thaw cycle. With a natural matte finish, this option improves durability while maintaining the natural look of the building.


Concrete is among the most durable building materials available. However, with the proper care and maintenance, concrete can deteriorate. With expert Boston concrete sealing services from Abbot Building Restoration, you can rest assured that your building will be fully protected for years to come.
