DRIVEWAY SEALING PATHWAY SEALING CONCRETE SEALING 

At Sunshine Pressure Cleaning as well as offering a high or low pressure cleaning solution for all exterior surfaces on the sunshine coast, we also specialise in concrete sealing and driveway sealing.

Whether your driveway is gray concrete, coloured concrete, exposed aggregate concrete or stamped or stenciled, sealing after the concrete has been cleaned and every few years after is recommended as part of the maintenance routine.  

when we complete a driveway or concrete seal, we will first come and clean the concrete or driveway surface, we then allow this to dry before applying the sealer. We use a high quality sealing product that will protect the surface.

Sealing will extended the life of the concrete surface

Whether you're having a beautiful new driveway or concrete area poured or you already have one, it's important that you protect and maintain your investment. A good sealer will keep your driveway and concrete areas looking great for many years, or rejuvenate an existing surface.

benefits of sealing

  • Sealing a concrete driveway can be compared to waxing your car or wearing sunscreen.  A sealer will improve your driveway's appearance, keep UV rays from causing it to fade and protect it from stains.
  • A sealer will keep water from sinking into the driveway. Water will bead on the surface.
  • stain protection is another benefit of sealing a concrete driveway. your driveway will be subjected to many things in the great outdoors that can leave unsightly stains on the surface – leaves, dirt, fertiliser, pet urine, oil, tire tracks and much more.
  • The sealer will keep all of the above from penetrating the surface of the concrete and leaving an unsightly stain.
  • adds value to your home
  • Reduces spalling, flaking and cracking
  • improves appearance of your home and improves curb appeal 
  • Increases the longevity of the concrete 

Types of sealer

water based penetrating sealer - natural look

  • a water-based penetrating sealer works by penetrating into the concrete to form a barrier that shields against moisture penetration and contaminants.
  • natural look - it will provide invisible protection without changing the appearance of the surface. 
  • a water based sealer is a better choice where good traction is important. it does not leave a glossy finish and will not contribute to the slipperiness of the concrete surface.
  • this product will give a longer lasting result than other sealers
  • the sealing process using this product is completed in the same day 

Solvent based acrylic sealer - wet look

  • sealer is recommended as the finishing coats on all new concrete including stamped, stenciled or coloured concrete and for resealing all types of concrete. this sealer has been developed from a selected blend of resins to provide a durable, non-yellowing, protective coating
  • decorative 'wet look' finish
  • sealer dries to a clear, hard, water repellent non-yellowing film, which has excellent resistance to most contaminants, preventing staining and dirt impregnation. the sealer enhances the oxide colours and exposed stones used in the various types of cement based paving.
  • not suitable for areas that are steep as it can become slippery 
  • this product is recommended to be reapplied every 2 years or so depending on conditions and use.
  • the process generally requires 2 days to complete 

coloured sealer 

  • a tint is added to the sealer to give a coloured finish
  • can be applied to a range of surfaces - generally used for stamped, stenciled or plain gray concrete
  • it will revitalise tired stamped and stenciled concrete areas - bringing them back to life
  • decorative 'wet look' finish 
  • this product is recommended to be reapplied every 2 years or so depending on conditions and use.
  • the process generally requires 2 days to complete 

colour chart for coloured sealer 

**PLEASE NOTE IF YOUR DRIVEWAY OR CONCRETE AREA HAS ALREAdy been sealed, the same product will need to be applied to the surface. not sure what type of sealer is on it? we can inspect the surface and let you know what type it is and what the options are.

cleaning and sealing - what is the process

STEP ONE

high pressure clean of the concrete area & ALLOW TO DRY

STEP TWO

apply first coat of sealer

STEP THREE

allow first coat to dry 

STEP FOUR

apply second coat of sealer

DURING THE PROCESS THE SEALED DRIVEWAY OR CONCRETE AREA IS TO BE KEPT CLEAR. WE WILL TAPE OF THE DRIVEWAY AREA TO ENSURE IT IS CLEARLY VISIBLE. AFTER THE SECOND COAT IS APPLIED TO THE SURFACE, IT IS TO remain FREE FROM CARS, FURNITURE, POTS ETC. FOR 24 HOURS SO IT DOES NOT GET MARKED OR DAMAGED AND HAS TIME TO PROPERLY DRY OUT. ONCE THE SEALER HAS DRIED OFF FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS IT WILL BE ABLE TO BE WALKED ON ONLY.

IN SOME CASES THE PROCESS CAN BE COMPLETED IN THE SAME DAY - CONDITIONS PERMITTING. IN OTHER CASES THE SEALER MAY TAKE LONGER TO DRY AND THIS WILL RESULT IN THE PROCESS ROLLING OVER TO A SECOND DAY.
