Take some pictures of your sealing project and let our experts work out what you need
My PIC driveway is quite slippery, will this get worse if I apply the imprinted concrete sealer?
The sealer will make the driveway a bit more slipper after application, especially the gloss sealer. If you have concerns about the surface becoming slippery, please use our anti-slip additive with the sealer.
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.
Are there any guarantees as to how long the block paving sealer will last once applied?
There are no guarantees on longevity of the sealer once applied simply because we cannot provide a consistent guarantee. Every driveway or patio receives different amounts of wear, and they all face in different directions. On average the block paving sealer should still provide protection for up to 5 years.
You should always carry out regular ongoing maintenance after sealing the block paving to ensure it looks good at all times. Smartseal supply a number of effective cleaning products and biocides to help you keep your paving clean.
