What Can We Help You With?
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
Does applying the block paving sealer kill all weeds?
We cannot guarantee that this will be the case. After the â€˜cleaningâ€™ process we suggest applying a â€˜weed killerâ€™. After re-sanding, the acrylic block paving sealer will â€˜sand bindâ€™ and protect the sanded joints, this will help reduce and make it a lot more difficult for weeds to put down their roots again. But further growth can always occur unless a small amount of general 'upkeep' is maintained*
* Please see 'application guide' supplied with block paving sealer.
I do not have the time for DIY restoration of my paving , will you come and do all the work for me?
Yes, Smartseal approved driveway and patio cleaning contractors cover most parts of the country.
How long will the paving sealer last once applied?
The life expectancy of paving sealer is generally between 5-7 years but will vary for several reasons - the amount of paving sealer applied, vehicle traffic use, exposure to sunlight and porosity of surface will all be relevant factors. For example, a north facing driveway with limited sunlight exposure will need re-sealing more frequently than one facing south.
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 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.
