Can you provide technical help and guidance for my paving restoration project?
Smartseal are able to provide you with as much help as you need to carry out a succesful DIY project. We may ask you to send us some images to ensure we can give you accurate advice.
How many coats of block paving sealer would you recommend?
We always recommend two coats of block paving sealer for optimum performance and protection. A top up coat of sealer is recommended every 3-5 years depending on traffic and surface wear.
Can you recommend any particular type of pressure washer?
Most pressure washers sold in DIY shops have limited levels of pressure which is often insufficient to clean a drive or patio effectively. We strongly advise using some of our cleaning materials in conjunction with any domestic pressure washer to ensure your driveway or patio is cleaned effectively prior to sealing.
What type of sand is swept between the joints in block paving?
The best type of sand to use is 'kiln dried' sand that can be purchased from most DIY stores.
Should I use a cleaning product before I seal my paving
What are the coverage ratios of the sealers?
Coverage ratios will vary between products and are also affected by surface porosity. Please refer to the application guides next to each product that can be downloaded directly from our website.
