Absolutely brilliant product, has renewed the look of our block paved drive significantly, with many neighbouring comments of how great it looks. The online guides are really helpful and easy to use. It does give off quite a bit of chemical smell but this only last a few hours. Would definitely recommend and use again. Super customer service too.

Just used a combination of smartseal grey and red re-colour sealer plus finished with clear seal. Really pleased with the end result, looks amazing. Spent 350 on materials saved over 5000 on replacement. Watched and executed the guides provided and all went well. It is hard work, getting the borders and patterns right takes care and time, don't rush it. Ensure the site is prepped correctly with all joint lines clear of muck, a decent pressure washer helps a lot. The only application issue i had was applying the final clear sealant, it was very hot when I done this, high 20's and some of the colour bled over so I had to be very careful applying it, done the grey and red separately. Got before and after pics but can't see a way to add them to this review. Definitely recommended

By Trevor Bird From Stevenage

Amazing product. Gives brilliant coverage using only one coat with excellent results. Really easy to apply. Customer support is really great. Highly recommend this sealer which will give your old patio a new lease of life.

By Claire Ecclestone From Cheshire

All I can say is wow . The result is amazing. We had a red block paved drive and have changed the colour to black. It has totally transformed the front of the house

By Mike Johnson From Wirral

By Vince Di Salvo

1st Class company and product. Sup quick delivery......... Just keep stirring the product from start to finish. I wouldn't buy from any other company. My drive looks the dogs bits. 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍 Thank you SMARTSEAL.

By Mark Williams From Thorpe le Soken

Unreal product. Transformed my dated pink block paving stones to an ultra modern looking jet black stone. Really easy to put down (just make sure you clean the paving down properly first) One coat is plenty (which I didnt believe at first, but it is) you'll still need to buy a good clear resin sealer (buy off ebay) for the sealer coat (give it two coats) but I could not rate the product highly enough.

Great product... must mix well and during process. Beautiful finish.

By Mark Williams From Thorpe le Soken

Gives an excellent finish, is easy to place, and when covered by clear sealer gives a water resistant surface

By Richard Bows From Rutland

I like the colour transformation but unfortunately it seems a little patchy. I've tried applying a second coat but it doesn't seem to help at all. I mixed the product thoroughly before and during the process so I can't explain why this has happened. I'm hoping the clear sealant will help.

By Lauren Quinn From Liverpool

Good product


Great product. Does exactly what it says it does.

By David Taylor

Not sure if I was using it wrong but after I had used about a quarter of the tin to paint the bricks, the liquid became thicker when poured and the next set of bricks painted were much darker in colour than the first set. Reponse from Smartseal - Please make sure to mix product thoroughly before and during use. This should avoid the possibility of this issue.

By William Erskine

Used on my black pavers around my resin drive, they now look amazing. Excellent product.

By Richard Hawkins From Andover

By Keith Miles

Excellent product used on my charcoal block paving around the perimeter of my drive then used the sealer. looks realy smart.

By stephen draycott From Newcastle-under-lyme

Quick delivery. Good coverage and appears a very good product. I will now be ordering the full 25l drum.


Excellent product, really smartened up my charcoal block paving around the perimeter of my drive. You can see the paint penetrating the block as you are painting.

By John Clarke

Hi. Yes extremely impressed with the product and the service. I can now look back at the transformed driveway. Thanks guys.

By Nizar Chagpar From Harrow

After receiving advice from a representative of Smartseal I purchased 5 litres of the black block magic . I used this on some new coping stones and this stuff has worked a treat. I used a paint brush to apply 2 coats and they are now a nice black colour . Thanks Smartseal

Step-by-Step Video Guide

Add colour to your block paving to make it look like new.

Smartseal "Block Magic" is a blend of liquid pigments and acrylic resins that soaks deeply into paving, totally transforming and protecting block paving driveways and patios. 'Block Magic' replaces the colour that sun, rain, vehicles and pressure washing has taken away. Apply one coat of 'Block Magic' by brush or roller, leave to dry, re-sand the joints and apply 2nd coat of clear sealer.


 Transforms Old Block Paving

  • Recolours and Protects
  • UV Stable
  • Colour Fast
  • Stain Resistant
  • Hard Wearing
  • Covers 3 m/litre on average based on one coat
  • Other Colours Available

See Technical section below for more information.



Liquid UV stable pigments blended with acrylic resins and solvents create "block magic". Developed by Smartseal with older block paving in mind, it will not only recolour block paving but protect the paving from future colour loss, weeds algae and staining.

'Block Magic' Coloured Paving Sealer is applied by roller, at a rate of approx 3.0m2 per litre. Make sure the colour has dried evenly across the block paving before appying a clear second coat of sealer.Prior to applying sealer, sweep kiln dried sand into the joints and ideally compact with 'wacker plate'.The sealer will be tack free within 2 hours at 20C and foot traffic may be permitted after 4 hours. Vehicles should be kept off the sealed area for a minimum of 24 hours at 20C. These times may be increased or reduced depending on the ambient temperature.
Ensure no rain is forecast for at least 6 hours after application. Do not apply when the ground temperature is above 25C or below 12C.
All equipment should be cleaned with Smartseal cleaning fluid after use.

Deicing salts should not be applied directly on sealed block paving or concrete sealers.
Salt chemically reduces the temperature at which water freezes and will result in water ingress into the pavers.
Subsequent freezing may result in the paving 'sealer' being broken by the expansion of water as it freezes and white 'pitted' areas may become visible.


*** If your Block Paving has been previously sealed - to ensure compatibility, please contact us here before ordering: https://www.smartseal.co.uk/help-advice/contact-us.htm

Existing paving should be pressure washed to remove all surface debris and muck from the joints.
If the area is contaminated with weeds & moss then it should be treated with Smartseal moss clear or weed killer.
Oil and other stains should be removed using Smartseal Driveway Cleaner or Oil Remover.
The treated area should then be left to dry and the joints re-sanded & compacted to the lower edge of the paver chamfers with clean kiln-dried sand.
Moisture in the paver & sand will inhibit penetration of the sealer and produce whiteness.
