It’s Time to Wash Your Concrete Driveway
Maintaining your driveway is far more economical than having it worn away over time causing cracks, breakage, splits, and holes. When this happens and it falls into a state of disrepair you then have to call a concrete company and repair or worse yet, replace the driveway.
The average driveway installation ranges in cost between $3-7 per foot according to concretenetwork.com. With that pricing in mind, if your driveway is, just say, the average size of 1500 sq/ft then you are looking in the $7500-$10,000 range to replace it.
In reality, you do not have to think about replacing concrete if you just simply maintain it.
WHY PROTECT YOUR CONCRETE?
Concrete is porous. It naturally absorbs water as well as contaminants. While it doesn’t stay cold in Florida, it does in some instances dip below the 32-degree mark for freezing. When water freezes, it expands. Water absorbed into your concrete during the winter months can expand up to 9%. This can lead to cracking and surface chipping.
The Best Advice?
Wash your concrete to make it look its best. Seal it to mitigate cracking and chipping.
WHEN SHOULD YOU PROTECT YOUR CONCRETE?
The sealant we use works best in the summer or early fall. When temps are warmest it allows the sealant to remain as liquid as possible seeping into every nook and crevice. The more saturated the concrete, the better the protection level. So, waiting until winter is not recommended.
HOW IS A CONCRETE DRIVEWAY WASHED AND SEALED?
Concrete washing and sealing are not that difficult. Do it properly and you enjoy the peace of mind of knowing that your property is protected and will hold value. The problem is renting the right equipment and purchasing the correct type of sealer.
You save time and money with a professional company, especially if that company is Benitez Pressure Washing of Southwest Florida. Our techs are specifically trained in flat-surface washing.
