The Sticks & Stones Process

Our team has developed a rigorous process that delivers the best results for our customers every time. All surfaces are cleaned beforehand and we use a controlled PSI to ensure the concrete surface is not damaged.

We roll on all our sealers to achieve a uniform final product you can be proud of. We also make sure the concrete is completely ready before we begin. This way, we avoid any air pockets that can harden the surface. For best results, we recommend applying our penetrating sealer every two years.

Sticks & Stones Penetrating Sealing Products

Sticks and & Stones Building Solutions uses the highest quality sealing products to prevent things like cracking, delamination, spalling and the overall deterioration of your concrete. Both our penetrating and membrane sealers are approved by Alberta Transportation and are compliant with Environment Canada VOC regulations.

Penetrating Sealers

Our team uses a water-repellent saline sealer that penetrates the top 1.5 inches of a surface to create a more durable layer. It reinforces the concrete to limit corrosion while increasing its density and hardness. It also protects against the freeze thaw cycle, weathering, and UV radiation.

Penetrating sealers act as a barrier against unwanted moisture and water-born salts that develop within the concrete itself. It is also extremely effective in reducing surface deterioration from de-icing chemicals. Using this type of sealant can extend the lifespan of your concrete by several years.

Membrane Sealers

Membrane Sealers create a wax-like barrier that prevents foreign debris from entering the concrete. These sealers can help prevent mortar flaking, cracking and delamination.
