Best Water Repellent Treatments for Concrete


I will be building a deck over a concrete patio and I am planning to seal the concrete before starting the project.

I would be interested in hearing product recommendations and/or products to stay clear of.

Thanks!

Best Water Repellent Treatments for Concrete


since conc appearance isn't prime concern, any silicone siloxane would be good for this,,, possible an apron store has it but prosoco/sonneborn/euclid're better suppliers,,, const supply houses're best source.

Best Water Repellent Treatments for Concrete


First, thanks for the suggestion for siloxane.

I contacted my local dealer and he recommended using Prosoco SLX100. I looked at the SLX100 product data sheet online and it does not even appear to be siloxane. It is a silane-based product.

The second thing he told me is I could us it on the wood decking. Thatís not right is it?

SLX-100 is overkill for what you want. Check out PROSOCO's Siloxane PD or Saltguard products.
