Why should I use your paving sealer, I have found other cheaper products available?
We could also make our products cheaper, by using lower quality materials, but long term this would just lead to disappointed customers. Our products are manufactured to the highest standards and are BS/5750 ISO9000 approved to give our customers peace of mind.
After researching several products I am confused about sealer coverage ratios, can you help?
Yes, at Smartseal we are always looking to give accurate advice, not just 'sell you some sealer'. With this in mind we recommend a coverage ratio of 2sq metres per litre 1st coat and 3.5sq metres per litre second coat. You can spread it a lot thinner than sometimes stated with other products, but long term you will be dissapointed with the results, so what is the point?
For a more detailed information or personal advice regarding technical issues please call 01268 722500.

Do you offer a paving sealer developed specifically for patio paving slabs?
The Smartseal premium paving sealer generally is suitable for patios, but due to the fact that paving slabs have many different levels of porosity, it is always recommended to do a test area first
What kind of driveway or patio cleaning equipment would you recommend?
A standard power washer will do the job, but one with a rotary head* style accessory is recommended for driveway cleaning and patio cleaning. As a general rule, the more powerful the washer, the less time it will take.
*Please see cleaning equipment section on our website for furher information.
After my driveway has had block paving sealer applied, how easy is it to clean off new oil and dirty stains?
Once sealer has been applied the block paving will be far less porous so any further staining will be easily removed. In most cases undiluted washing up liquid will be sufficient. In bad cases we advise the use of Oil Stain Remover available from Smartseal to solve the problem.
