Concrete Seal Removal & Reseal

SageSolutions has many quality ways of protecting and restoring your assets. One of them is by sealing your concrete.

Why Should I Seal My Concrete?

While concrete is durable and can last for decades, it may soon begin to look pretty shabby. There are a number of factors that can quickly make your concrete look centuries old. Salt and melting chemicals, oil spills, fertilizer, and weather can cause crumbling, discoloration or cracks. Furthermore, concrete tends to develop hair-line cracks and a new sealant will keep water from getting into these cracks, freezing, and causing expansion.

Regular sealing protects your concrete investment from these threats and keeps it looking great for decades.

Should I hire a professional to seal my concrete?

That’s of course the customer’s decision. It’s important to know that it needs to be properly prepared before it is applied, because if something is sealed to it, it will be there for a very long time. It’s also important that the sealer doesn’t puddle or get wet. Everyone will quickly notice a bad sealing job. Removing a bad seal is a lot of hard work.

Is Concrete Sealing worth the expense?

Even several sealings is less expensive and less trouble than breaking up your ruined driveway with a jackhammer, renting a container to have the chunks removed from your property and then having a new driveway poured.

What is the best time to seal concrete?

Usually, the best time to seal new concrete is when the concrete has cured. While the type of sealer used are factors in determining when to apply the sealer, 28 days is generally considered a good time to do the job. Some sealers, though, need to be applied as soon as the concrete can bear the weight of the person applying the sealer.

After that, how often you will need to reseal depends on the kind of sealer used and the kind of wear and tear you concrete gets. Understand that Colorado’s hot sun, cold winters and rapidly changing temperatures can cause more rapid wear. This is why we recommend regular sealing.

What kind of sealer works best?

There are different sealers to choose from and they have different outcomes. Some sealers are practically invisible, some add color, some are glossy, others are flat, some protect from weather extremes and mold, some are good for trafficked areas, some for places where chemicals are used, some are good for watery areas, some sealers are environmentally friendly, some last 1 to 3 years and others last for 10 or more years, some make your concrete slippery and need additives to prevent that, some repel water and salts, others repel oil. Your concrete professional will advise you as to which sealer will meet your needs and wants.

Should we remove the old sealer?

If you are unsure about what type of sealer was previously used, we recommend removing the old sealer before putting on the new. We use a biodegradable, non toxic, soy based solution to remove it. Because you can only remove a very small area at a time, this process takes time. We also want to be sure not to miss any spots or it won’t look very nice. After removing the old sealer, we use a power washer that is at least 4,000 psi on your concrete.

After We Leave: You will have already verified that everything is operating as it should; however, that does not mean you can forget about your lawn, trees, and bushes. Like any mechanical system, problems can arise unexpectedly or things can be missed. As such, it is imperative that someone monitor the health of the lawn, trees, and bushes after we leave. If you observe stress in any of the aforementioned items, you should begin hand watering and then call us to schedule another appointment. Warranty: We will warranty all parts against poor workmanship or manufacturing defect that we install up until the first freeze. Our technicians will do their absolute best to resolve all sprinkler system related issues. Please confirm everything is working well and that you are 100% satisfied before allowing the technician to leave. Things to double check include: good zone coverage, reasonable clock settings, no leaks a the back-flow, or manifold. The technician will gladly walk you through the aforementioned areas and help you understand how to adjust your clock. A return visit (if needed) will be treated as a new service call to keep our pricing low. So, double checking the work is a win win for everyone. We do not warranty your grass, bushes, trees or any living thing.  It is the homeowner’s responsibility to physically inspect their vegetation periodically and to identify any problems. As the summer goes on, you will likely notice that some areas of your lawn will begin to need more water. Please be sure the technician shows you how to make changes to your programmed settings. If you are not comfortable making changes, you are welcomed to call us for another service call. It is just important to remember that we do not live on the property and that we cannot know if there is a new or existing problem after we leave. This is why it is so important that the home owner study the health of their vegetation to ensure all is good. Manually testing the system periodically during the day is an excellent idea, too. This will help you identify problems before they become serious. Sometimes leaks in a system can manifest themselves in different ways. For example, a leaky manifold right next to the home can in rare cases send water into the basement. It is the homeowners responsibility to notice problems like this in a timely manner before extensive damage occurs. This can be done by periodically inspecting the manifold box and/or basement. If we are found to be at fault, we will refund up to everything that was paid for the service. Drip Systems: It’s pretty easy to identify a zone in your lawn not working. When manually testing your system, you can physically observe that heads are popping up and that the spray pattern is appropriate. Monitoring the drip system isn’t quite as easy. Generally, you can confirm that it is going on if you hear air being pushed out emitters and by also finding a few emitters and confirming that water is being pushed out. That being said, it would be very difficult for us or anyone to confirm that every emitter is performing correctly. Typically, there are 3-4 emitters per tree and it is above the soil and below the landscaping fabric and rocks or wood chips. As such, easily getting to and inspecting them all would be very difficult and time consuming. That being said, we are happy to do this if you want to pay for this type of service. We would charge $90/hr. High Water Bills: Quite often we are called out after a customer receives an unusually high water bill. We are quite good at finding and fixing this type of problem. That being said, please don’t wait until your next water bill to ensure we nailed it. A typical lawn on a hot day needs 125 gallons per every 1,000 square feet. Other sources state the lawn needs around .6 gallons per square foot. A typical lawn, will use about 2,000 gallons on a watering day. So, have the technician show you your water meter, which is normally rounded to the nearest thousand. Make note of the reading in the evening and then check it again in the morning after your lawn has been watered. If you used 5,000 gallons when we were expecting only 2,000 gallons to be used, we still have a problem. In this case, we will come back and search for additional possible problems. Since we do not live on the property, in no case can we take responsibility for your water bill. Please work with the technician to enable you to quickly determine if all is well after we leave. As a side note, we typically resolve problems like this on our first attempt. Winterization: Hundreds and perhaps thousands of customers use our service to winterize their sprinkler system each year. Our process to winterize your sprinkler system entails utilizing a gas powered air compressor to push all the water out each zone and to the bleed valve at the basement shut-off valve. We invite you to physically observe this procedure of removing all the water from your system. In rare cases, people will find freeze damage to their system in the Spring. This can occur if someone inadvertently turns on the water to your sprinkler system during the winter or if the main shut-off to your sprinkler system has a very slow leak. The latter problem can refill your system over several months assuming it is a slow leak. The best way to detect this type of problem is to periodically inspect bleed-valves on your back-flow throughout the winter. There should be no sign of water after our winterization process. Our Appointment: In peak months (April/May/June) customers often have to wait 2-3 weeks for us to arrive. Upon arrival, we don’t know if the job will take 30 minutes or four hours. Our goal is to arrive early in the 2-hour arrival window and leave before the arrival window is closed. Unfortunately, sometimes the job takes much longer, which can then cause us to need to reschedule subsequent appointments. In general, we like to try and finish what we started. To minimize the impact on other customers we do our best to save some windows each week in the event a customer needs to be rescheduled. We know that nobody wants to be rescheduled, so we do our best to prevent this from happening.
