Sealing Cracks Yourself Isn't All That It Seems
Some homeowners try anything to save money, at least one time! But opting to purchase do-it-yourself sealants from a local hardware store and attempting your best effort to seal concrete joints yourself may give you more problems in the long run. These purchased sealants are urethane-based and do not hold up well to UV rays (sunlight) and temperature changes. They actually break down causing it to become inflexible and brittle over time. With these bonds broken, these sealants no longer offer protection against water.
Another drawback to a DIY approach is related to installation methods. Proper sealant application requires deep cleaning to remove all substances from the joints, grinding the joint edges, and finishing. These steps require experience and equipment that most homeowners do not have. The DIY results end up being messy, ineffective and rarely turn out as the homeowner planned.
Hiring a skilled professional with years of experience and expertise can save you time and money in the long run. Installation includes special preparation of joints, seams and cracks. Deep cleaning to remove debris, followed by grinding and filling where needed is done with special equipment most do not readily have.
Our team seals cracks and joints with a silicone-based sealant, which remains more pliable than traditional urethane-based caulking used in concrete joints. So the natural expansion and contraction of concrete during temperature changes won't break its bond. Our joint sealant is also resistant to UV rays, which results in no drying, cracking or bubbling.
