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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Is your Natural Stone Sealer an Impregnator?
Yes, our high quality sealers for natural stone are classed as 'impregnators' rather than topical sealers. They are specially formulated so that they fill all the microscopic voids in the top layers of a substrate and are very effective at providing long-term protection.
