Professional Concrete Waterproofing
Applying a protective concrete waterproofing sealant will extend the life of your driveway and other concrete areas by sealing any cracks and joints. Whether you have a newly poured driveway or want to prevent your current driveway from having issues, sealing is crucial.
Properly waterproofing your driveway, patios, and sidewalks can prevent more significant problems from occurring. Unsealed cracks can allow water to seep underneath and erode concrete. Over time untreated cracks will expand further, accelerating the erosion of your concrete.
Keeping water out of concrete is an essential step to extended durability. And it is often required by law and building codes to waterproof some concrete structures, especially if your building is in an area with a high water table, the site is flood-prone, or you're dealing with load-bearing walls for high-rise buildings.
The application of our commercial-grade products will leave your driveway looking and functioning great for years to come!
Benefits Of Waterproofing
Now that you understand that waterproofing will extend the life of your concrete, what other benefits can you look forward to?
- Waterproofing your concrete will help stop mold and mildew from getting into the walls and floor. Not only is this vital for the concrete's structural integrity but your family and colleagues' health.
- Maintenance costs and cleanup will be reduced significantly through waterproofing. After heavy rains, storms, and even floods, you will find that cleanup is a cinch if your concrete has been waterproofed. Your regular maintenance, too, will be much easier.
- Your property value will increase if you have waterproofed your walls, floors, driveway, or patio. An excellent selling point is a waterproofed basement or sub-floor. This will help guarantee to the buyer that they are in for fewer water problems.
Getting Ready To Waterproof
When water breaks down concrete, it starts looking bad and will eventually weaken. Over time the concrete erodes, allowing water in, which will ultimately lead to overall damage. If you can already see damage to your concrete, chances are the underlying structure is also damaged. This is why waterproofing is vital; waterproofing protects your concrete slab from the elements.
How To Prepare Your Concrete Surface For Waterproofing:
- Seal any small and large cracks first.
- Make sure your surface is completely dry and free from dust and grease.
- Check the weather report before getting started. Don't get going if rain is expected.
- A good rule of thumb to follow is to waterproof all foundation walls that have earth on one side and usable space on the other. That includes crawl spaces.
- Call in the experts to professionally waterproof your concrete.

“The Driveway Co did an outstanding job on our new garage floor. The workers, Steve and Mike, were very professional and friendly. They took the time to explain the procedure and answered our questions. They also cleaned up the work area. Thanks!”

“The Driveway Company removed failed caulking and recaulked the drive and patio. Their estimator and workers were friendly and courteous. They did not treat me like an idiot because I am a female and do not know a lot about concrete. The job looks very neat and I have every confidence that the driveway is structurally stable and well done. I’m very pleased with the whole experience.”
Mary A. Blossom
“I’m so glad I saw the TV commercial for The Driveway Co. I had deep scoring cracks in my back patio and front walk and I thought if they went through another winter of freezing and thawing and freezing, they would require more work. And it looked like more work than I could or wanted to do to look right. They did a Great job. I’m very pleased with the work they did and would refer them to anyone who needs this type of work done. Well done and neat. I’m proud to show my patio and front walk.”
“I had your company do some work on my steps and around my foundation. Your company truck pulled up and four gentlemen got out. They had a job to do. Each knew what to do and they went to work.
If I had any questions or concerns, Steve was there to answer them. It was a great crew. I cannot express enough how happy I am with the job that was done. My home is in one piece again. I wish I could have had the driveway done, but I understand about the black tar. Any visitors I have are surprised how good it looks. Again I thank you.”
P.S. Give the crew a raise. They were great!

“Thank you for a job well done! The crew that was here did a great job! Please be sure to tell them!”
“I would rate this company A+. From the start they were responsive and answered any and all questions I had. I really appreciated the fact no one tried to “up sell” me or treat me like I didn’t know what I was talking about. When they came to caulk the cracks in my driveway, they were so wonderful. Had I not seen them here with my own eyes, I would never have known they had done work here; they were so quick, efficient and cleaned up everything! I have already told a friend that I think they are the company to go with. I am very glad I called them and am so thrilled with the results so far! Thank You!”
“I am writing this letter to commend Skylar Spahn and Dan Peters for the excellent job they did on our driveway last Saturday, August 1, 2015.
They arrived promptly and were very personable and helpful! All my questions were answered completely and thoroughly. They went above and beyond what I expected. They were interrupted by rain and had to stop. They returned and finished the job as soon as the conditions permitted that day which I was very thankful for. I will recommend them and your company to my neighbors. Thank you.”
Tim and Donna Roth
“We heard very positive things about The Driveway Company and decided to opt for a driveway renovation. We are very pleased with the technical aspects of the renovation. The 2 guys that came were very skilled at their craft. They sawed some expansion (crack) joints in order to alleviate some of the problems with expansion and contraction at the frost line in order to facilitate the prevention of any moisture that would undermine the structure of the driveway. Then they sealed each crack and fissure, even the tiniest hairline cracks.
We were delightfully surprised at the extraordinary job that was skillfully accomplished by the Driveway techs. We could not be happier nor could we have found a better company to do our drive. Thank you The Driveway Company. We would highly recommend their professional workmanship.”
