    Concrete deck sealer

    Getting ready to try a penetrating concrete sealer from Armor Foundation to put on my brushed concrete deck. Will let everyone know how it works out. I did a lot of research on brands and types.
    2 factors figured into my choice.. 1) the quick responses to my questions and ease of talking to a real person. 2) price. 3) reviews. I know I said 2 factors.

    Thanks for sharing this info. Before and after pics might be revealing for us. Is it just standard, uncolored concrete...brushed finish?

    Re: Concrete deck sealer

    May be a stupid question, but what do you use a deck sealer for? I have a crumbly old concrete deck and want to make it new again...

    Re: Concrete deck sealer

    There are 2 types of sealer. Penatrating and surface. Water intrusion is not concrrtes best friend. Through exspansion and retraction concrete can be damaged. Which comes from water Penatrating freezing and exspanding. There is tons of info on the web about it. Goggle it for more info.
    I choose Penatrating type so it does npt have to be reapplied as often...hopefully never again unlike surface type

    Re: Concrete deck sealer

    Just finished putting 2 gallons down.
    Boy oh boy did i miss calculate. Need another 2 to finish. I opted to roll it on instead of using a pump up sprayer.
    Too windy here in nN Tex.
    Try rolling on water. Thats what its like.

    Re: Concrete deck sealer

    I wish I had time to take pictures before I left for work. But there were many things that had happened since my last post that took priority. I can tell you all that there is a definite visible difference between the treated concrete and untreated. I am quite impressed.
    The label on the bottle says seal it once protect it for a lifetime. The product is made by Armor Foundation . AS5000-LX40, $64/gallon.
    I will get picture when I get home in 3 weeks, or try to get the wife to take comparison one

    Hey Turner,

    Just a friendly suggestion that if you click and copy the img link for specific photos in your PB albums they pop right up and show on the forum. Easier for viewing instead of digging through your albums. If you need help, PM me and I'll be glad to help you.

    Re: Concrete deck sealer

    I tell you I did a little research on this product after reading your review. The company claims the sealer lasts for 10 years and is DOT approved. Seems like a quality product.
