A wide range of environmental factors can cause accelerated aging of exposed surfaces and fixtures located outside of your home. Fortunately, the process can be slowed dramatically, saving you money and preserving the great look of many surfaces.
Surfaces At Risk
Water is the culprit. With wood surfaces, water seeps in and can cause splits and warping. Imagine what occurs when the temperature fluxuates. For example, you may have a mid-winter thaw. Here, water can seep into the surface of wood or concrete, and can freeze again, causing bigger splits and fractures. Common surfaces at risk include: decks, fences, outdoor furniture, play sets, patios, retaining walls, sidewalks and walk ways, driveways, and garage floors. Think about it. Your concrete drive way is like a big, gray sponge. When you look at wood and concrete, both surfaces are porous and susceptible to water damage – damage that may increase with the thawing/freezing cycle.
Prove It? All right…
so you ask, “Where is this highly technologically advanced coating being used now to extend the life of exposed surfaces?” Here is a short list of structures that are being protected by this technology:
- New York Stock Exchange
- Naval Academy in Annapolis
- The Pentagon
- Carnegie Hall
- The White House
- And 1,000’s of others…
The great news is that this ‘green’ technology is available to homeowners. To get the protection your home deserves, the best thing you can do is to put nano-technology to work for you! That nano-technology is called Sealwize.
Space Age Technology… Literally
Fortunately, new technology for sealants has been perfected through our space program. One of the founders of the process Sealwize uses, Dr. Dan Ostrander, a Molecular Scientist who worked with NASA to create coatings for the space program, has used nano-technology to create the closest thing to a permanent seal that exists today for homeowners. Because it is an inorganic product using natural compounds (minerals, etc.), it does not break down like organic compounds, and, virtually all commonly used products are organic. You can use Sealwize on wood and concrete to protect these surfaces from outdoor elements.
