concrete coating and protection

What do you do to prepare your building for winter? Aside from having the snow shovel ready and a bucket of sand on standby for the slippery days, you might be like most people and, well, not do very much.

In reality, winter can cause a lot of damage, and often in ways that can be prevented or at least lessened.

You exterior concrete, for example, might seem nearly indestructible. After all, it’s rock solid. Or is it? Winter brings with it one of the gravest dangers for any part of your building’s exterior: moisture. Rain comes, snow melts, slush pools, and it all works its way deep inside your concrete. Then, as the temperatures fluctuate, it freezes and thaws, expanding and contracting, causing scaling, cracking, spalling, pop-outs, and more.

So, What Can You Do to Protect Your Concrete?

One of the most effective ways to prevent concrete damage is to invest in a concrete coating. It acts much like your winter jacket does, sealing out the not-so-pleasant wind, rain, and cold. It is, however, important that not just any coating is applied. In commercial and industrial settings, choosing the right product to meet your specific needs is crucial, as always.

Some concrete coatings will be subject to more flex and strain than others, for example, depending on your specific environment. At Final Touch Decorating, we will take that into consideration as we work with you to help protect your property.
