Over time, concrete is exposed to moisture, temperature changes and chemicals that cause it to look aged and unattractive. Once damage from these elements starts, the concrete degrades at an even faster rate. This is not only unsightly - it can also become a safety hazard, lead to pricy concrete repairs, and reduce your home's value.
Madole Constructions Concrete Protection Program is broken down into three parts. First, your concrete is lifted and leveled using PolyLevel polyurethane foam. Then, any cracks and control joints are filled and sealed using NexusPro joint sealant. Finally, the whole surface is protected from the elements with a coat of SealantPro concrete sealant, which permanently bonds to your concrete. This system is a great solution for protecting new concrete, but it is also effective for older concrete.
Concrete is often poured over recently backfilled soil around a home after construction. This loose soil settles over time, creating a void under the concrete. These voids causes your concrete to shift and settle, creating cracked, uneven surfaces and dangerous tripping hazards. PolyLevel permanently lifts and stabilizes sinking concrete slabs with a high-density polyurethane formula. Small (nickel-sized) holes are drilled into the slab, and a structural-grade polymer is injected into the void. The expanding properties of the polyurethane allow for an accurate lift and leveling of the slab.
NexusPro is a high strength silicone-based sealant for joints and cracks specially engineered to provide long-lasting flexibility and to stand up to harsh weather conditions. Some concrete cracking is caused by thermal expansion and contraction. Another common occurrence is erosion of soil under the slab. As water runs down through the cracks and joints in the concrete, it washes the soil out as it passes through. This product seals joints to prevent water penetration when concrete expands and contracts. Unlike traditional polyurethane sealants, NexusPro resists UV rays, which means it won't crack, bubble or dry.
Lastly, SealantPro permanently protects your concrete from its strongest enemies in Nevada: moisture and temperature changes. Nevada has 180 freeze/ thaw cycles a year. Rain and snow infiltrates the concrete and freezes, therefore expanding and damaging your concrete. SealantPro penetrates deeply into the pores and bonds with the concrete, creating a strong and permanent barrier. Additionally, SealantPro breaks the ice bond making snow and ice removal easier. Unlike other concrete sealers, SealantPros Seal of Protection does not wash away or weaken over time. That means your concrete is protected from pitting, flaking, and cracking. With SealantPro, concrete stays smooth and stain resistant.
