Protect your new home
Many people do not realize that when they purchase a new home the concrete is not normally sealed. A quick way to test this is to pour a small amount of water on your driveway. If the water beads up, it is sealed. If it absorbs into the concrete it is not sealed and will lead to future, costly problems.
When water absorbs into the concrete it will expand during freezing temperatures causing the concrete to crack and "pop" up the surface. Water can also get into unsealed control joints and wash out the base under the slab. this will cause the slab to sink. A professional such as www.defenderconcretesolutions.com can seal the surface and joints to prevent the elements from ruining your slab.
Proper sealing can also protect against ice melt, which can cause serious damage to the surface of your concrete if left untreated.
