Should I Seal My Concrete Foundation?

Foundation sealing is not just a preventive measure but an investment into the structural well-being of your home. It serves as the frontline defense against environmental threats that can cause serious damage over time. By opting for professional foundation sealing services, you’re taking a significant step towards ensuring the long-term integrity of your foundation. 

Here are some key benefits of foundation sealing:

  1. Moisture prevention: Sealing your foundation blocks moisture from entering through the concrete, preventing water damage and mold growth.
  2. Improved structural integrity: A sealed foundation is better protected against cracking, crumbling, and other forms of structural deterioration caused by water infiltration.
  3. Enhanced energy efficiency: By keeping moisture out, foundation sealing also helps to maintain the internal temperature of your property, potentially reducing heating and cooling costs.
  4. Extended foundation lifespan: Sealing provides a layer of protection that can significantly extend the life of your concrete foundation, ensuring it remains solid and reliable for years to come.
  5. Increased property value: A well-maintained foundation is a key selling point for any property. Foundation sealing can increase your home’s value and appeal to potential buyers.

If you’d like to protect your foundation and home against unnecessary damage, G&J Waterproofing is here to help. Our Pittsburgh foundation sealing professionals back our work with excellent warranties. 

How Long Does Foundation Sealer Last?

The longevity of a foundation sealer can significantly vary depending on the quality of the product used and the conditions of the surrounding environment. Typically, a high-quality foundation sealer applied by professionals like those at G&J Waterproofing can last between 5 to 10 years before a reapplication is necessary. Regular maintenance and inspection can help ensure its effectiveness throughout its lifespan.

Because foundation sealers don’t last forever, you need to be able to recognize the signs that your foundation needs to be resealed; this is very important in maintaining the structural integrity and value of your property. 

Here are some common warning signs you need to reseal your foundation:

  • Visible cracks on the foundation or basement walls 
  • Water seepage or damp spots on walls or floor 
  • Mold and mildew in your basement 
  • Increased humidity levels 
  • Peeling paint or coating 
  • Increased heating and cooling bills 

How Soon After Pouring Concrete Should You Seal It?

Sealing a new concrete foundation is crucial to its longevity and resistance against moisture and other environmental factors over time. Ideally, the sealing process should begin once the concrete has fully cured, which typically takes around 28 to 30 days under normal weather conditions. This waiting period allows the concrete to achieve its maximum strength and ensures that the sealer adheres properly, creating an effective barrier against water penetration. 

By sealing the concrete at the optimal time, you safeguard the foundation against premature deterioration, enhance its resilience to freeze-thaw cycles, and ultimately extend its lifespan.
