Applying a water repellent to your masonry or concrete surfaces, whether new or existing, can help extend its life. Water repellent can help keep water from seeping into porous stone and masonry, but can also assist in deflecting water that can get in behind concrete, granite, or masonry that may then freeze and cause shifting or cracking. We also suggest sealing and caulking for any damaged caulking to maximize the amount of protection for your building against harsh elements such as New England winters.
Duffley Development Co suggests water repellents to all of our customers as an easy and practical extra step to extend the beauty and life of all masonry projects, no matter how big or how small. It is an easy, relatively undisruptive process that can add years to your stonework. It can also help to reduce the amount of grime and dirt build up over the years, which can keep your building looking great, even if it’s in the middle of harsh elements.
