Is a cement sealer necessary?


Just had some cement work done on front and back porch steps, sides of porch, cracks on front porch floor, foundation, etc.). Results were very messy as cement was all over the aluminum siding, just slathered on crack (not smoothed out at edges), and cement was applied in a stucco fashion to the riser of steps and other areas - which means the cement was just slopped on any which way. So, I bought a rubbing stone and smoothed out some areas.

Does the smoothed out areas now need to be sealed or painted? If so, what's a good sealer? The initial job was not sealed.

Thanks
