Q: How long until I can use my driveway?
A: The length of time depends on the concrete finish. It is generally okay to walk on new concrete after 12 to 24 hours. But we recommend that you avoid driving on your driveway for at least seven days.
Q: Do I need to apply sealer to my new concrete driveway, pathway or patio?
A: Yes. It is best to apply concrete sealer, such as an acrylic sealer or high-performance epoxy and urethane, 30 days after concrete construction is complete.
Q: Should I reseal my concrete periodically?
A: Resealing depends on numerous factors, including wear and tear, sun exposure and weathering. We recommend that you reseal your concrete every two to three years.
Q: Can you repair concrete cracks?
A: Yes, Heartland Concrete specialises in repairing cracked concrete. We treat the crack to ensure it does not happen again. Our professionals also apply a resurfacing product over the entire concrete surface. Resurfacing is necessary to ensure the whole surface has a similar appearance. Without resurfacing, repaired cracks are more apparent than cracks in concrete.
Q: Do I need to clean my exposed aggregate?
A: Yes. We recommend cleaning your exposed aggregate with an acid wash. It should be done every 12 months.
