I’m sure you’ve heard the Will Rogers quote, “If you don’t like the weather in Oklahoma, wait a minute and it’ll change.” While that’s great for those of us who are easily bored with dreary skies, it’s not as good for the concrete and wood that surrounds our homes. But, you can’t change the weather, so, what can you do? PermaSeal has the solution!
Originated in Canada, PermaSeal was created more than 50 years ago to preserve wood finishes from the cold climates in the north. Since then, PermaSeal operates in 13 states across the country and is the only company of its kind that has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.
What exactly is PermaSeal? It’s much more than a protective topcoat. Simply put, PermaSeal is a silicone-based product that restores concrete and wood. Mark Clausen, Oklahoma Branch Manager, says the benefits are endless. “It not only refurbishes wood and concrete, but makes them 23 percent stronger, not to mention the waterproof aspect of it. Further decay and rot are no longer a concern once PermaSeal has been applied.”
PermaSeal can be used on new concrete and wood structures or existing ones as well. “We’ve worked on driveways that have years of damage from salt and sand from Oklahoma winters and by the time we’re done, they look nearly new. It’s an amazing product.” Driveways, fences, decks, pergolas, gazebos and boat decks and slips are just a few of the investments PermaSeal can protect. But, one item people may not think of are their salt water pools. “Salt naturally eats away at nearly everything, so we can protect your backyard oasis too,” says Mark.
Another impressive aspect of PermaSeal is that it is a green product. “It’s safe for the three Ps – people, plants and pets. It’s completely biodegradable and nontoxic,” boasts Mark. He adds, “It almost sounds too good to be true when I explain all the benefits, but it really works. It does exactly what it’s supposed to do.”
Of course, it doesn’t hurt that PermaSeal also makes maintenance much easier. Treated surfaces simply need to be rinsed. Power washing is no longer necessary. Now you can use that time to enjoy your home instead of worrying about constant upkeep.
The fact that the company stands behind its product speaks volumes. Each application has a 25-year transferable warranty. If you visit their facebook page (www.facebook.com/permasealusaLLC), you can view before and after pictures as well as videos of the process so you can see for yourself what an invaluable asset this would be to your home. You can also get more information on their website or call them for your free estimate.
