What Can We Help You With?
Can you supply all guidance and materials for my paving restoration project?
Yes, Smartseal can supply all the necessary paving cleaning equipment, paving sealer application tools and materials required for any project.
We can also offer full technical support and guidance if required.
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.
Can you restore the original colouring of Pattern Imprinted Concrete?
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.
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.
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.
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?
