Protect your concrete and masonry from damage with the DriveHard 5-Gal. 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 4.3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good quality product I only applied this product last weekend so I cannot assess the durability, but Drivehard went on easily and evenly with a common herbicide sprayer. Even though my driveway really soaked up the spray, Drivehard covered the square footage it claimed a gallon would cover. I had done much research before deciding what product to buy, and this one had the correct combination of quality ingredients for the job at the best value. As soon as it was dry, liquid beaded up, and I look forward to the driveway staying cleaner and stronger. I also used it to seal some cement stepping stones I made. February 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Buy I was pleased with how DriveHard worked. I would recommend it to others. It repels water and I have not had issues with my driveway since I have used it. It does exactly what the label says it will do. December 3, 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by Because I am interested in long term performance, it seems silly to review a product quickly after application Ask me in five years how well this product works. It's frustrating to read reviews which report spectacular results after one week of performance, what's the point. Otherwise, the product was clear, odorless, applied easily, and if it performs as represented, then I'll be quite satisfied. October 16, 2012
