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.
What are the benefits of using block paving sealer on my driveway or patio?
Smartseal block paving sealer will harden the sand between the joints of the pavers and help prevent weeds growing in the previously soft sand. The block paving sealer will also enhance the colours of the block paving and help prevent colour loss from prolonged exposure to sunlight. The block paving sealer will also make removal of oil stains much easier.
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.
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.
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.
Will my block paving or pattern imprinted concrete driveway or patio look shiny after it has been sealed?
We have a various finishes to choose from when selecting our block paving sealers or imprinted concrete sealers. You can select a Matt, Silk or Gloss finish. All of the finishes look very natural and are a matter of personal choice.
