If you make the commitment to decorative concrete, ensure you take the steps to properly protect it.
Protection from the elements With concrete Sealing
Penetrating sealers react chemically with concrete to provide a shield against moisture penetration and chemicals, this is most often used in to protect against Calgary’s heavy freeze/thaw cycle while providing a natural, matte finish if desired. For interior and (some exterior) applications, Acrylics, Polyurethanes and Epoxies are used to build a film on the concrete service that protects against, foot traffic and scuffs while enhancing the natural beauty. Choosing the proper sealer will ensure your concrete is protected from whatever is thrown at it.

Acrylic and Urethane based are available in a wide variety to enhance the colour and gloss of your concrete. If you’re looking for that “wet look” this is the way to go. These applications can often have old, worn concrete looking brand new.
Sealing Exposed Aggregate
We recommend everyone in Calgary to seal their exposed aggregate primarily to protect against our harsh weather and increase the lifespan but also to enhance the natural colours. Most sealers are an acrylic film filling resin that protects against freeze/thaw, dust, stains, deicing salts and abrasion.
The sealing products are
- Non-yellowing and UV resistant (sun degrades epoxy overtime and creates a yellow apperance)
- If desired provides a glossy soaking wet look that deepens the rich colours
- Resistant to oil, grease, salt and other stains
- Can be re-coated
It is ideal to seal exposed aggregate when its fresh however sealing can still be applied existing concrete provided the surface is properly cleaned and free from dirt, oil, grease etc.
