Protect your Driveway and Sidewalks
Concrete Sealing by Window Genie of NW Chicago uses equipment specifically designed to quickly and evenly seal various concrete surfaces. Even though they are fairly maintenance free, concrete driveways and concrete sidewalks still can become very dirty and discolored. They are also severely affected by salt and snow, acid rain, moisture and high temperatures. Professional concrete sealing service can make dramatic improvements to the appearance of your concrete driveway and concrete sidewalk. With our unique concrete sealers which penetrate your existing concrete, you can protect it from the damaging elements and form a barrier that keeps even oils and fluids from penetrating. Window Genie’s concrete cleaning service and concrete sealing is the answer to your dirty concrete needs.
Concrete Sealing – Stop Driveway Damage
Chem-Tec One, which is actually a “preservative and densifier”, is like adding liquid concrete to your existing driveway or sidewalk. Once added to the concrete, the “sealer”, which is the same consistency as water, penetrates deeply into the substrate. There it
begins a chemical reaction with the calcium and lime that exists in the concrete. As it reacts, it forms a gel that over time will harden and permanently fill the pores of the concrete. In addition, as it hardens, it pushes out contaminants such as oil and salt that lie within the concrete. This process takes about 30 days and the old salt and oil are then washed away with rain or snow.
Compared to the less expensive sealers on store shelves which are silicone-based and are nothing but surface sealers that wear off quickly, Chem-Tec One, as a concrete sealer, is a permanent product. Once applied, especially with our 2-coat application, it should not have to be reapplied for 5-20 years depending on the structure type and use. So not only is it significantly more effective, but it is more cost-effective in the long run.

Sealing a paver has numerous benefits. Pavers are, by nature, very little maintenance, but they can occasionally become tarnished by several factors:
- Ants and other pests
- Mold or Moss
- Weather stains
Sealing your paver can prevent these forces from destroying your investment. Window Genie uses state of the art compounds to seal your paver. You can choose from three different Seal N Lock products.
Natural Luster is environmentally safe and gives a luscious natural look to your paver.
Super Wet gives your paver that beautiful shiny “wet look”. Super Wet is environmentally safe.
EffloRemover is an organic acid that is used to remove efflorescence (a white residue sometimes apparent on pavers) and rust from the surface of pavers. Just like all Seal n Lock products, EffloRemover is environmentally safe.
Window Genie offers a variety of options for sealing pavers, decks, and concrete. Don’t mess with hazardous chemicals and expensive tools. Give us a call today to schedule a free estimate and put the Genie to work for you.
