Customer asked if they should seal (or have it sealed by someone) their basic concrete after I clean it. Patio, drive, sidewalks.
I know nothing about sealing. Read the forums and saw mostly about sealing stamped concrete and pavers.
If it is sealed, roughly how long does it last under basic conditions (we are in Ohio) - a few years, 5 yrs, 10?
How much time will it buy them (typically) on having it cleaned again, allow them to go double the years, triple between cleans or not help that much?
Waste of time and money for basic concrete?
Driveways vs sidewalks and patios?
Garage floor - if free of oil stains and such?
I don’t plan to offer concrete sealing, but do think it would be good to know if it is really worth the money for the customer to hire it out, or diy, or skip it.
I live in a relatively small community, and want to keep a reputation of treating folks right, and giving them good info to help them care for their homes. Playing the long game.
Thanks a million for anyone who can fill in these gaps.
