After dealing with sinking concrete and having it repaired, the last thing you want is to leave the job half-finished. While our PolyLevel® System is the best solution in the business for lifting concrete and filling voids, it doesn't deal with cracks or seams on the surface.
But we wouldn't leave you without any option for sealing your concrete, and that's where NexusPro® comes in.
Most people are familiar with caulking and what it's used for. They may have even done some of their own work around the house. The thing is, when you head to the hardware store looking for a concrete sealant, you'll end up leaving with a subpar product.
Most box store sealants, even those designed for concrete, become dry and brittle, cracking even more than the concrete slab it was supposed to protect.
Installation is another common issue since many homeowners don't always use a sealant properly. This may be okay around your shower or kitchen sink, but your DIY concrete repair won't hold up to the harsh outdoor elements like a trained installer's work would.
"Well, all that sounds great, but what really makes it so different?"
NexusPro® is a construction-grade, silicone-based sealant formulated to provide long-lasting flexibility, durability and protection. Typically, harsh UV-light from the sun dries out traditional polyurethane sealants, but NexusPro® resists these rays, preventing cracking or bubbling. A single application can protect your driveway, patio, pool deck or steps for years to come, keeping soil washouts and compaction at bay.
"Okay, that all makes sense, but what else makes the difference?"
Aesthetic – Since NexusPro® resists UV-rays, it won't dry out and crack. This not only matches the smooth, finished look of your concrete slabs, but it keeps weeds and other debris from protruding out.
Fast Cure Time – 24 to 72 hours in the typical time it takes polyurethane sealants to cure, which is difficult to deal with in a high-traffic area. NexusPro® cures in only 60-minutes, giving you back your pool deck, driveway or patio in no time!
Durability – The absolute best features of NexusPro® are its long-lasting properties. It's completely flexible and waterproof and actually accommodates shrinking and expanding slabs as they move and shift over time.
Colours – NexusPro® is available in six different variants to match your current colour scheme (black, charcoal, gray, aluminum, limestone, desert sand) and for optimal blending customers have the choice to add sand or gravel to the sealant when it’s applied
