Protect your concrete and masonry from damage with the DriveHard 1-Gallon Premium Concrete Weatherproofer and Fortifier. DriveHard penetrates into the surface; it creates a chemical bond that permanently increases the lifespan of concrete by preventing damage from many common problems, including extreme weather conditions (e.g. repeated freeze-thaw cycles). The patent-pending, water-based nano-silicone/silicate based formula creates a breathable, yet stronger water-repellant surface that is more resistant to abrasion and water dissolved salts (alkali). DriveHard also helps create a strong, natural-looking surface that resists UV and mildew damage to promote lasting performance. For your convenience, DriveHard can be quickly and easily applied with a brush.

  • Nano-silicone/silicate-based formula fortifies and densifies concrete and masonry surfaces to help reduce cracking, spalling, rust corrosion, white powder dusting and dirt pickup
  • 1 gallon covers up to 200 sq. ft.
  • Creates a clear, natural-looking finish
  • UV resistant formula helps guard against fading
  • Mildew-resistant formula helps provide long-lasting durability
  • Dries to the touch in as little as 1 hour for quick protection
  • Requires only 1 coat for efficient masonry protection
  • Ready-to-use formula can be easily applied with a brush

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by the best for concrete I tested out the other major concrete sealing products before discovering Drivehard. The other products tend to change the surface texture of the concrete, make it shiny, or change the color. This product doesn't change the look or feel of your concrete. It soaks in, and you can actually here is "sizzling" as it does its thing. I applied this on the North side of my house, on a concrete patio area that always grows mildew and gets slippery when wet towards the end of winter. Drivehard completely solved that problem. In fact, I didn't even have to pressure wash the patio this year. It works excellently. Doesn't even look like anything was applied! I'm going to put this on all my concrete. August 9, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It's Better Than Using a Sealer Anything that doesn't make my driveway slippery like a sealer would is okay in my book. And it was cheaper than a sealer. August 25, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stoop Saver We brushed it on our new stoop. All the other stoops in the area are falling apart. It's held up so far and seems to keep all the moisture from soaking into the concrete. Pretty neat product. August 24, 2011
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Stuff Just brushed it on my patio. Sprinkler water beads up on it. Great stuff. August 24, 2011
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by didn't do the job at all have severe "chalking' problem with recent concrete pour in a garage,followed directions after two days chalking came right back and surface does not stop tire marks. Now I can't paint the surface because silicon won't let anything stick and the stuff is expensive. Waste of money and surface is worse than ever September 19, 2012
