Here are some tips and information for winterizing your concrete.
Your Concrete Needs Attention! Winterizing concrete surfaces will help extend the life and use. To prepare your concrete surface for the winter months, we recommend patching and repairing the areas that show signs of damage. If the concrete surface is still level, you can apply a flexible sealant to the cracks, giving a watertight bond to help with the damage spreading. If the concrete surface is NOT level, a professional repair may be in order. Xcel Concrete Leveling is the professional you want to call for concrete leveling needs. We will meet with you to give you a FREE estimate and discuss the next steps to leveling your concrete.

There are times that the surface of the concrete has been chipped away or crumbled a little. This is not the end... and you can apply a concrete resurface product to give the surface of the concrete a smooth appearance. A resurfacer is bonding with the existing concrete to give you a smooth surface from like new to old. BUT be careful; a concrete resurfacer will NOT fix an unlevel surface. Unlevel surfaces may require a professional to provide guidance on how to address.
Xcel Concrete Leveling has the experience and knowledge to provide you with information to make the right choice.
A final step in winterizing your concrete surface is applying a sealer. Protect Your Concrete – Seal It! After cleaning up the concrete, filling in the cracks, and using a resurfacer (if needed), the final step in preserving the life of your concrete surface is to seal it—an important step to extending the longevity of your concrete surface. A sealant will help protect your concrete surface from absorbing too much water – and thus reducing the chances of cracking and breaking through a cold freezing winter. Not preparing your concrete surfaces for winter could cause the surfaces to become unlevel, creating a reason to call in a professional.
