Can you restore the original colouring of Pattern Imprinted Concrete (PIC)?
As a general rule the appearance of pattern imprinted concrete when damp is how it will look once is it cleaned and a clear paving sealer has been re-applied.
If additional colour is required Smartseal can supply a full range of sealer tints.
What type of sand is swept between the joints in block paving?
Kiln dried sand is always recommended. This ensures the joints of the block paving are completely filled. This type of sand solidifies and bonds more effectively with the block paving sealer giving maximum protection against weed growth and the future loss of jointing sand.
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
Will my block paving or pattern imprinted concrete look shiny once sealer has been applied?
As a rule of thumb how the paving looks when damp, is how it will look once treated with sealer. The majority of people feel this gives the paving a 'fresh look' and are very happy that the original colour has been restored.
