Full DIY kits for the restoring Block Paving, Natural Stone, Tarmac and Imprinted Concrete
Will the block paving stop weeds from growing?
The block paving sealer will help to prevent weed growth by hardening the soft sand in the joints of the paving. A weed can grow in the smallest of cracks so there is no guarantee that you will not see the odd weed now and again. The block paving sealer will simply help to make ongoing maintenance much easier by inhibiting the growth of weeds.
My imprinted concrete has gone white in places, do you know what this is and how to fix it?
The whiteness is probably caused by moisture 'trapped' within the sealer. This is normally quite easy to fix using our 'Sealer Repair Fluid'. All you have to do is apply the repair fluid to the areas that have gone white and after a few minutes once it has returned to a liquid state, agitate with a brush or broom. The sealer should re-set clear without any whiteness within the hour.
Does your natural stone sealer come in different finishes?
Yes, we provide a dry 'invisible finish that will not alter the appearance of the natural stone and a colour enhancing version to bring out all the colours in the stone, similar to when the surface is damp.
What are the benefits of using block paving sealer on my driveway or patio?

The block paving sealer will also enhance the colours of the block paving and help prevent colour loss from prolonged exposure to sunlight.
