Whether you’re in the process of building a brand new home, recently added new concrete to your existing property, or just want to protect the condition of your concrete floors, applying a concrete sealer is a must. AquaGuard offers Northern Georgia homeowners a waterproof concrete slab and crack sealant that permanently protects concrete from its strongest enemies.
Do You Need to Seal Your Concrete?
The biggest enemy to a concrete surface is moisture, followed by temperature changes and chemicals. Once concrete has been exposed to any of these elements, damage begins to occur, making it look unattractive and quickly degrade. Not only is damaged concrete an eyesore, but it’s also a safety hazard and could reduce the overall value of your home.
An Atlanta concrete sealer is the best possible way to prevent concrete damage caused by moisture, chemicals, and seasonal changes. Without it, your concrete is doomed to a shorter lifespan, costing you more money in repair and replacement in the long run.
AquaGuard’s Concrete Sealer
At AquaGuard, we offer an alternative to the lackluster Atlanta concrete sealer solutions provided by big-box stores. Our sealer is a high-quality, low-maintenance concrete sealer that protects and extends the life of your concrete with just ONE application—making it the best concrete sealer available in the Atlanta market today.
How does Concrete Sealant Work?
Our sealant penetrates deeply into pores to bond with your concrete, creating a permanent barrier against moisture, chemicals, and seasonal changes.
Benefits of Using Sealant to Protect Your Concrete
Our sealant permanently protects concrete with just one application. This will save you time and money over time because it does not need to be reapplied. Plus, it dries in minutes and is fully cured in just 6 hours, which gives you the ability to use your concrete the same day.
Unlike other concrete sealers, our sealant is non-yellowing. Its clear application won’t compromise the color of your concrete, keeping it looking beautiful from start to finish.
Our sealant is a state-of-the-art material that penetrates and permanently bonds with your concrete on a molecular level. This helps it resist stains and cracks caused by moisture or liquids such as oil and gasoline.
A lot of concrete sealant options on the market aren’t compatible with new concrete. However, our concrete sealer can be applied to new concrete and keeps it smooth, stain-resistant, and easier to clean.
We guarantee that your concrete sealant won’t wash away or weaken over time. Unlike other concrete sealers that require reapplication, ours will continue to protect your concrete from pitting, flaking, and penetration by oil and gasoline for many years to come.
Without concrete sealant, your concrete driveways, walkways, and patios are subject to damage from moisture, chemicals, and seasonal changes. Protecting your concrete from the elements will extend its lifetime and reduce the likelihood of having to pay for costly repairs.
Our concrete sealer is UV resistant. Not only that, it protects your concrete from warm weather issues such as algae, mold, mildew, and discoloration.
We Seal the Following Concrete Surfaces:
To protect against concrete stains, direct sunlight and UV light, harsh chemicals, and weather changes, Atlanta concrete sealer services are a good choice for the following surfaces:

How to Seal Concrete: The Application Process
- Deep Clean Concrete: Before our concrete contractors seal your driveways, walkways, or patios, we will first deep clean the concrete surface to open up the pores.
- Spray and Work Into Concrete: Once your concrete is clean, our next step is to spray all concrete surfaces. We then work it into the concrete to ensure it penetrates deep into the concrete’s pores.
- Allow 4-6 Hours Cure Time: That’s it! After application and 4-6 hours of cure time, you’ll be ready to use your concrete as normal!

Concrete Sealant FAQs
Yes! In fact, we recommend that our customers protect their newly lifted concrete to help protect the condition of their concrete for many years to come. Both products are meant to work in tandem as a comprehensive concrete protection system.
Do-it-yourself concrete protection kits from the big-box stores don’t offer the same quality and low-maintenance that you would hope for from your concrete sealant. They typically require multiple applications to achieve peak levels of protection, and even then the results may be short-lived. Additionally, they are often limited in their application type, and not all DIY concrete sealers are suitable for sidewalk, driveway, pool decks, and patios.
Even though concrete is one of the strongest building materials available, it’s not indestructible. In fact, concrete is known for cracking—now, not all concrete cracks lead to structural problems. However, any type of concrete crack can be at least an aesthetic concern, so the more you can do to protect your concrete and prevent cracks and other blemishes from occurring, the better.
Concrete most commonly cracks due to soil conditions, though climate changes, salt, chemicals, and freeze-thaw cycles can cause damage to your concrete’s surface. Because concrete is porous in nature, it’s susceptible to stains from chemicals such as oils and gas. However, just like you would protect your shoes, clothes, or furniture from stains with spray-on repellent, you can essentially do the same for your concrete with a concrete coating. In addition chemicals, water damage can also lead to impurities in your concrete. When water seeps into porous concrete, as temperatures drop, the water in the damp concrete turns to ice. As water freezes, it expands, forcing the concrete to pit, flake, and crack. A high-performance concrete sealant won’t only protect the surface of the concrete—a penetrating concrete sealer bonds with concrete on a molecular level, ensuring freeze-thaw cycles don’t threaten your concrete surfaces.
