How We Protect Brick and Masonry

Our professional applicators will seal and protect your masonry or brick with a penetrating siloxane. The siloxane bonds chemically to the pores inside and below the surface of brick and masonry substrates. This keeps liquid water from entering into the brick.

Since the siloxane penetrates deeply, UV rays cannot degrade the masonry sealer. The penetrating sealer bond is below the surface so it will have a much longer life expectancy than a surface coating.

Penetrating below the surface also means that high traffic areas like driveways and sidewalks will not lose protection from high use. Surface sealers remain on top of the substrate and are eroded from use. Also the substrate will maintain its natural texture and sheen with a penetrating sealer.

What is Efflorescence

The white, powdery layer that develops on brick and masonry surfaces is called efflorescence. It is caused by water penetrationg the brick during rains. This water disolves natural salts in the brick. When the weather dries out the wate evaporates from the brick. Unfortunately the salts that were disolved in the water get left on the surface of the brick or masonry. When they accumulate they become visible as efflorescence.

Sealing your brick and masonry will eliminate this unsightly residue.
