Your Concrete

Is More Like  a 


Than You Think

Advantages of our Concrete Sealing Solution:

  • It Prevents Accidents and Injuries
    Pitted and cracked surfaces are trip and fall hazards. Mildew and grime on your surface can cause people to slip, especially during or after weather events. Rain and humidity are conducive to the growth of mildew and mold. Cleaning up grime that can get slippery is a sound safety precaution.Along with all the other reasons we’ve mentioned, there’s also the factor of health and safety. If you’ve got any of that excess build-up of dirt, mold, mildew, or even oil, it can be harboring several thousands of living bacteria and allergens. Mildew and algae like to grow in damp or shadowed areas, while oil may drip from your car onto the driveway. By pressure washing these areas and removing all of these foreign invaders, you are not only protecting your family (and any visitors to your home) from getting sick, but also from any bodily harm that may come from slipping on some of these very slippery surfaces.
  • Protects the Integrity of Your Surface, Saving You Money."
    Acidic grime and algae will, over time, erode your concrete or pavement. Preventing the resultant pitting and cracks can save you thousands in repair dollars.Increase Your Driveway's LifespanTake care of your concrete.While we may think of concrete as something durable that lasts forever, the truth is that it is possible for your concrete driveway to become damaged by the buildup that occurs on the surface of your driveway day after day. If you don’t want to have to replace your driveway prematurely, then having a pressure washing company come to your home and wash your driveway is a good idea. Prolonging the life of your driveway will help you keep your money in your pocket for as long as possible.
  • Protects Against Harmful Bacteria.
    When dirt, grime, mold, and mildew build up in your home, they make your home more prone to harmful bacteria. Young children and pets are at more risk of catching harmful bacterial infections and falling sick. Cleaning your home regularly with a pressure washer gets rid of filth leaving no chance of bacteria forming.
  • Improves Curb Appeal.
    When you or a guest drives up to your home, the driveway is one of the first things they see. You may not think about it much, because you drive on it every day, but if your driveway is old and grimy, it could be leaving a bad impression on those who visit. You will be surprised by how much better your house looks when it’s the backdrop for a newly cleaned driveway. ​​
  • Safety
    When you attempt a DIY pressure washing job, you are putting your own safety and that of your property at risk. Without proper training, you risk injuring yourself or damaging your driveway by using the wrong water temperature, water pressure, or cleaning agents. With The Shield guys on the job, you don’t have to worry about any of this. Our technicians know the correct techniques for keeping themselves and your property safe. Because most of the cleaning ability comes from the power of the washer, there is no need for harsh chemicals. Often, wateralone will get the job done. However, thereare biodegradable cleaners and other safeproducts that can be used in combinationwith a washer. This may be necessary forclearing significant amounts of grease ormuck. These products are safe for plants,animals, and people.
  • Saves time and exertion
    As compared to traditional manual scrubbing and washing of the surface, power washing or pressure washing is more time saving and efficient. The high-pressure water sprayed on the driveway is enough to remove debris from all the gaps and cracks on the driveway. No extra effort is needed to clean the path. Thus, pressure cleaning is the trendiest way of cleaning driveways.
  • Eco-Friendly
    Along with the time and money saving advantages of pressure washing, this type of service is also friendly to the environment. Your power washer technician can use detergents and other cleaning products that are gentle to the environment. In addition, power washing can achieve a high level of clean, without the use of harsh and abrasive chemicals. When your surface is not looking its best, you should be sure to set up power washing services.

Not all concrete is created equal. The concrete aggregate of a stamped patio is not the same as that of a concrete garage floor which is not the same as that of a concrete driveway, etc. Because of this, using a one-size-fits-all general sealer designed to “protect” surfaces ranging from concrete to wood just doesn’t make good sense. Many of these all-purpose sealers, such as Home Depot’s G-Seal, are silicone based and include organic fillers like plant oils which make them very cheap, and for this reason, a very popular choice for pressure washing companies. The price difference is significant—to seal an average driveway with one of these multi-surface sealers a service provider will spend between $10-$30 in product cost whereas a service provider who applies an aggregate specific concrete sealer will spend between $75-$150 for the same coverage. And you get precisely what you pay for. The difference in quality is just as significant as the difference in price; a product designed for a very specific kind of concrete will always outperform one designed to cover a multitude of surfaces. That’s just common sense.


Driveway concrete in particular is especially porous and at a magnified view looks very similar to a sponge with many natural gaps and spaces. Because of its especially porous nature compared to other smooth or decorative concrete aggregates, driveway concrete should be protected with a very specific kind of penetrating concrete sealer: silane-siloxane. Why silane-siloxane? The answer is necessarily a bit technical.

Silane-siloxane concrete sealers are sealers that contain particles of, well, silane and siloxane polymers. Silane particles are very small and are designed to penetrate deep past the porous surface of the concrete. Siloxane particles are larger than the silane particles and so penetrate the concrete at shallower levels. The combination of these two polymers make for the perfect “seal team”: the penetrating silane particles work in concert with the surface level siloxane particles to create a hydrophobic barrier (waterproof barrier) that will comprehensively block out water and salts from passing through the concrete. The silane-siloxane sealer has been specifically engineered for the porous concrete aggregates that are used in driveways and are thus far superior to the one-size-fits-all sealers so popular among pressure washing companies.
