Ashford Formula is a concrete densification product developed over 70 years ago. This old technology has stood the test of time, and it is one of the best applications to protect your concrete or masonry from their natural vulnerabilities. This product yields excellent results, it is time-efficient, and it is cost-effective.

What is the Ashford Formula?

The Ashford Formula is a liquid densifier that hardens and seals concrete or masonry. The leading causes of concrete damage is the freeze-thaw cycle and corrosion, which can be prevented by creating a chemically harder and more compact substrate. This sealer can be applied to new or old concrete. 

The Ashford Formula is not a topical coating, like epoxy, for example. Conversely, Ashford Formula treats the inside of the concrete rather than just the surface. When it is applied, a chemical reaction occurs within the concrete that creates tiny crystals, filling in the natural pores that make concrete susceptible to damage. The Ashford Formula is also VOC free, non-toxic, and odorless.

Benefits of Sealing Concrete with Ashford Formula

Strengthens Floors

Ashford Formula works by chemically producing tiny crystals within the concrete pores, which increases the overall density. Increasing the density of concrete and masonry ultimately makes it a much stronger compound, and therefore less subject to erosion, chipping, scratching, or cracking. 

It also seals your concrete from the freeze-thaw cycle by prohibiting water absorption. Instead, water is repelled off of the concrete, preventing those common hairline cracks. Ashford Formula makes concrete much more resilient to damage caused by weather and climate changes.

Lasts for Decades

Unlike floor coatings, Ashford Formula seals your floor once and for all. There won’t be any peeling or scuffs on the surface that need tended to. Because one application is the permanent solution, you eliminate future costs of recoating, resealing, or replacing your floors in the years to come. 

Dustproofs the Floor

Dust doesn’t have to be a problem for your concrete floors. Untreated concrete is prone to efflorescence. This is the process of salt flushing out salts within the concrete that appear as a white, powdery substance on the surface. Ashford Formula puts an end to efflorescence by chemically binding to the salt minerals, creating a dust proof surface. 

Improves Appearance

Perhaps the most remarkable feature of Ashford Formula sealer is that the more you use your floor, the better it will look! Foot traffic, vehicular traffic, scrubbing, and cleaning gradually polishes the concrete rather than eroding it. Ashford Formula is colorless, but the permanent sheen that develops can really brighten a space. Additionally, the concrete is much less susceptible to stains because the pores are filled. 

Installs Quickly

Eliminate downtime and interruption by using Ashford Formula on your concrete or masonry. Sealing with Ashford Formula is typically a single-day process. Within just a few hours, you can use your floor, and it will already be much more resilient than before.

Our Ashford Sealer Process

  1. We always begin with surface preparation. The concrete or masonry must be bare. It must be completely clean, unpainted, and uncoated. 
  2. Then we use a low-pressure sprayer to apply a thick coat of Ashford Formula, called a “flood coat”. 
  3. Next, we scrub the Ashford Formula liquid to help it sink into the concrete. 
  4. After 30 minutes, we rinse away an excess formula with water and allow it to dry. You can resume use after 2 to 3 hours.

What is a concrete coating?

Our polyurea floor coatings are a concrete resurfacing option that is installed over existing concrete floors for both interior and exterior concrete. All of our coatings are installed by hand (we do not use any stamps), thus giving our clients a true, one-of-a-kind floor. We install a wide range of flooring systems such as: 100% solid color floors, flake floors, and grind and clear floors.

Clients have the ability to customize any coating with our various color options and design techniques. Concrete Coatings are used not only in residential, but industrial and recreational settings as well. Revival Concrete uses only the highest quality, industrial products on the market to ensure every customer is getting the best value.

How Much Do Your Concrete Floor Coatings Cost?

Each project is customized to your particular concrete flooring needs. Every job we do is different, because we offer different types of coatings and finishes.  We will work with you to develop a free estimate keeping your budget in mind. 

How Long Do I Need To Stay Off My Concrete Floor Coating After It Is Installed?

If using 100% solid polyurea, your floor will be cured and walkable in 12 hours. You can return to full heavy traffic after 24-36 hours depending on the temperature the floor was installed in.

How do you prepare concrete for resurfacing?

We start every project by first preparing the concrete for our products. It is imperative that we have a fresh concrete surface before installing our concrete coatings on your project – this will allow our products to have only the BEST mechanical bond.

We spend approximately 33% of the project prepping your floor by diamond grinding with our 800 lb Lavina Grinder! Most contractors will come in and just acid wash or not even prep your floor – we get calls all the time about botched installs with customers asking if we can save their project; we must start fresh every time.

Will I Need To Reseal My Concrete Floor Coating?

If you follow our maintenance and cleaning guidelines, you should not have to worry about resealing the concrete floor coating. 

What If My Concrete Floor Has Cracks, Chips And Is Old?

No worries, we are experts in repairing existing problem areas of concrete. In some cases we have been found to be a cheaper alternative over tearing out and replacing existing slabs of concrete. Once we have saved your concrete we then install our decorative designs to hide the flaws and repairs.

How Do I Care For My Concrete Floor Coating?

Sweeping takes care of most messes. If there is mud or chemicals you can mop them with any household soap and warm water. Dawn or SimpleGreen work great! If chemicals are spilled on the floor, wipe them up as soon as you notice them.

Will Oil Stain My Concrete Floor Coating?

Floor coatings are extremely resistant to most hazards, including cleaners, gas, oil, transmission fluid, and even most industrial chemicals. Although our coatings are chemical resistant, you will still need to wipe up any chemical spills as soon as you notice them.

What Are Polyurea Concrete Coatings?

Polyurea is useful for concrete floors, as it quickly and strongly bonds to concrete while providing a smooth, virtually impermeable surface that protects the floor from impact, water damage, chemicals, heat, and sunlight.

Does My Concrete Floor Coating Come With A Warranty?

Residential floors come with a 15 year warranty and commercial floors have a 5 year warranty.

"Revival did a fantastic job on our front concrete porch - it is functional and artistic (we didn't want an industrial look) - nice to have both. They came back for a second visit to add more non-slip materials. Now the porch is safe as well compared to the bare slippery, drab concrete. Incredible that the coating may be done successfully even in cold temperatures. We are happy campers. Highly recommended."
