Swimming Pool and Patio Slab Sealing
Cleaning and sealing of the swimming pool decks are beneficial in both reducing the growth of bacteria and mildew and decreasing the amount of pressure washing and cleaning needed for the inside of your pool. The protective sealing process for your swimming pool deck surface will also reduce the amount of loose concrete dust and other cement particles from entering the pools filtration system. Overall sealing of the concrete will increase the life of your pools water pump. Sealing of the concrete should be done right after the concrete pour or after an existing surface is thoroughly pressure washed and chemically cleaned. Sealing over a dirty unprepared surface will lock any stains and spills into the concrete surface; we recommend professional grade concrete cleaning and sealing to extend the life and appearance of the concrete.

Our concrete sealers are available in clear, tinted or solid colors, making it easy to create a personal touch to your concrete. Sealing the pool deck concrete will darken the color slightly, creating a variation of gray hues and giving the surface a non-slip textured surface if used in a clear coating application. We can work with your designer or architect to create specifications for your custom decorative concrete design. In addition to improving the overall look of the concrete cleaning and sealing creates a surface that is easy to clean and slip-resistant.
Sealing concrete driveways, pool decks and patio slabs can reduce the chance of damage caused by the freeze-thaw cycle. Freeze-thaw occurs when water penetrating the surface freezes and expands causing concrete to crack or flake. Sealing the concrete will cause water to bead on the surface and repel moisture from absorbing. Business owners and homeowners can help prevent cracking, scaling, crazing, and pitting by yearly applying a good acrylic silicone solvent-based sealer to their concrete. Our certified concrete contractors can also repair cracks with an epoxy injection, dry packing or routing and sealing techniques to stabilize the cracks.
