Dealing with Temperature Extremes: Sealing Concrete Driveways


At SSP Coatings Garage Flooring Company, we understand the rigors your driveway is subjected to due to the ever-changing weather conditions. We recognize that temperature extremes, both hot and cold, can significantly impact your driveway’s integrity, leading to cracks, fading, and overall degradation. That’s why we offer concrete sealing services – a formidable solution to extend your driveway’s lifespan and maintain its aesthetic appeal.

Why Temperature Extremes Affect Concrete Driveways

Fluctuating Climate Conditions

Every material has a certain degree of thermal expansion and contraction. Concrete is no exception. During sweltering summers, it expands. In the chilling winters, it contracts. This constant dance, year in and year out, leads to the development of cracks, surface flaking, and other types of wear and tear.

Water Damage

Water can be concrete’s worst enemy, especially in freezing temperatures. When water seeps into the crevices of the concrete and then freezes, it expands, causing the concrete to crack.

The Solution: Driveway Sealing

Protective Barrier

Concrete sealing acts as a protective barrier between the elements and your driveway. This barrier doesn’t just reduce the penetration of water, but also other harmful substances like oil, salt, and UV rays.

Enhanced Aesthetics

Driveway sealing not only serves a protective function but also amplifies the beauty of your driveway. It gives it a glossy finish, making it look brand new. No more dull and faded surfaces!

Increase the Lifespan of Your Driveway

When you invest in concrete sealing, you are essentially investing in a longer lifespan for your driveway. No more frequent repairs or redoing the entire driveway. Sealed driveways can last many years longer than those left unprotected.

Moreover, consider the financial aspect. While there is an initial cost to sealing, the long-term savings are significant. No frequent repairs or replacements, meaning your wallet stays heavier for longer.

What temperature can you seal a concrete driveway?

Sealing a concrete driveway requires attention to temperature for optimal results. Here’s a general guideline:

Optimal Temperature Range:

Typically, the best temperature range for sealing a concrete driveway is between 50°F and 90°F (10°C and 32°C).

Why This Range?

Within this range, the sealant can cure properly. If the temperature is too cold, the sealant might not adhere to the concrete correctly, leading to an uneven finish or weak protection. If it’s too hot, the sealant can dry too quickly, which can cause bubbles or other imperfections in the finished product.

Other Considerations:

  • Surface Temperature: Aside from the ambient temperature, it’s essential to consider the concrete’s surface temperature. Even if the air temperature is within the recommended range, direct sunlight can make the concrete surface much hotter, which can impact the sealing process.
  • Nighttime Temperatures: Ensure that the nighttime temperatures won’t drop significantly after application. A sharp drop in temperature can interfere with the curing process.
  • Moisture: Before sealing, make sure the concrete is dry. It’s also essential to check the weather forecast to ensure there’s no rain expected for at least 24 hours after you plan to seal.
