We recommend that you seal any newly installed driveway. By sealing the driveway you will add value and durability to your concrete driveway and preserve the investment you made in your home. Kansas City is in one of the toughest freeze-thaw areas in the country. Sealing your concrete driveway is one of the best ways to reduce the harsh effects of the multiple freeze-thaw cycles that we experience. By properly sealing the surface of the concrete driveway you help stop the penetration of water into or just under the surface of the concrete. Water penetrating the surface and freezing is one of the causes of scaling and pop-outs, especially in concrete less than two years old. Sealing is the last step in maintaining a good-looking durable driveway that will last for years.

We recommend the following:

1. Clean the surface of the concrete by power washing or a good sweeping.
2. Allow the surface to dry thoroughly.
3. Apply a sealer evenly with a roller.

We recommend using Unitex 1315 Sealer for compatibility with the cure we used on your driveway when it was installed. The sealer can be applied with a paint roller or by using a garden-type sprayer, however, we recommend a roller for an even and consistent application. We recommend sealing in the fall for the first two years after new concrete is installed and then every 2 years thereafter to increase the durability of driveways and other areas exposed to salt. We also suggest that you avoid the use of any salt or non-salt ice-melt products on your driveway. If a product will melt the ice it will damage your concrete, even if the concrete is properly sealed.
We recommend the use of sand or kitty litter for traction instead of the use of ice-melt products. Some salt from the streets will be carried onto your driveway and into your garage on your car. We recommend sweeping or power washing your concrete periodically in addition to regularly scheduled sealing to help reduce the effects of this residual salt exposure. Give us a call if you have questions or if you are interested in having us seal your driveway for you.
