It's starting to look a lot like winter here in Saskatchewan. We all know how harsh the winters here can be and that your property will take a beating from the elements. Frost heaves, cracks and chips are just some of the consequences of winter on your driveway. You may have noticed cracks or chips in your driveway before the snow started to fall. You may have even thought, "I still have time to take care of this!" and are now thinking, "Oh no. It's too late to have my driveway sealed," guess again! Pro Surfaces has the solution for you! Flexstone! There are many benefits to sealing your driveway with Flexstone over other products. Let the experts at Pro Surfaces tell you what they are!
Why Should You Seal Your Driveway?
Your driveway is one of the first things guests see when they arrive, and it's the first impression you make on new neighbours. If your driveway is cracked, chipped or stained, it can bring down your curb appeal. That's why it's so important to keep it looking great. Driveway sealing is an essential maintenance task that many homeowners don't give much consideration to. Sealing your driveway with Flexstone polyaspartic coatings will help prevent cracking, spalling, water damage and salt damage and help prolong the life of your concrete. The benefits of sealing your driveway with Flexstone are many. Let's take a closer look at some of them.
Flexstone Prevents Cracking, Spalling and Water-Damage.
Flexstone coatings prevent water from seeping through cracks and causing damage to your driveway. During the cold Saskatchewan winters, water can get trapped in the cracks in your driveway; when it freezes, it will expand and cause more damage to the concrete. Flexstone polyaspartic coatings stop this by preventing any water from getting through the cracks of your driveway. Flexstone is waterproof, so it will not allow water to penetrate the concrete below it, even when covered in snow. This protects it from cracking, spalling and water damage due to the cold temperatures and natural freeze-thaw cycle.
Flexstone is Resistant to Salt and Chemical Spills.
Concrete is porous and can easily absorb chemicals, salt and other substances that could damage it. Flexstone will protect your concrete driveway from these substances, keeping it looking great for years to come. It creates a protective barrier between your concrete and any surface contaminants like oil or salt. This helps prevent stains and extends the life of your driveway by protecting corrosion caused by using salt throughout the winter. Flexstone polyaspartic coatings can be easily shovelled without scratching or chipping them. However, we do not recommend using ice picks on Flexstone.
Flexstone Can Stand up to Cold Temperatures.
While there are many types of driveway sealers, Flexstone is one of the most durable options. Flexstone was designed to withstand the harsh Canadian climate. It can hold up in temperatures up to -40 degrees and won't crack or peel like other driveway sealing products. Flexstone's weather resistance feature is essential since driveways in Saskatchewan are exposed to extreme cold temperatures for half of the year. As an added benefit, Flexstone can also withstand heavy traffic without being damaged. This makes it an ideal product for sealing driveways.
Flexstone Can Be Applied in the Winter.
One of the best benefits of Flexstone is that it can be applied during the winter months. Flexstone is applied in two to four layers depending on the finish type and is protected with a thick, impenetrable water-catalyzed urethane base coat. This is the secret to Flexstone's success in freezing temperatures, like we see in Regina and the rest of Saskatchewan. The base coat remains flexible for the lifetime of your driveway. The protective top coat systems provide complete UV stability and the same flexibility as your base, so you end up with an incredibly durable membrane that bonds to concrete better than any other liquid coating on the market today.
