Take some pictures of your sealing project and let our experts work out what you need
How long will the tarmac restorer last?
It depends on surface wear but it would not hurt to apply a 'top-up' coat every few years.
Do you have agents in Ireland who can do pressure washing and sealing of driveways, patios and roofs?
Smartseal have a network of pressure washing contractors in Ireland that can clean driveways, patios and roofs. Please conatct us if you would like us to put you in touch with one of them to arrange a quote.
Will the tarmac restorer even out the surface and cover small cracks and holes?
The tarmac restorer will not smooth out rough surfaces as it is not a 'slurry'. Any small cracks or holes should be filled with our crack repair compound prior to coating with Tarmaseal.
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.
Once the block paving sealer has been applied, will it be easier to remove oil and grease stains?
The block paving sealer will make it easier to remove oil stains as the oil will initially sit on the surface. A detergent based remover should be able to remove most of the oil if it is done quickly, or in cases of larger oil spills we would suggest using our oil remover for block paving.
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.
