Great product, the sealer has smartened up the drive way again. originally cleaned and painted the drive way 2 years ago but with it being bleached by the sun have now bought it back to the great colour. Would recommend their products

By Melvyn Mears

I used smartseal block magic on the brickwork and patio sealer on the patio slabs to transform the garden.

By Bruce Bowley From -

Excellent quality product. Very easy to apply and made a 25 year old patio look brand new!

By Marie Williams From County Durham

Cleaned up our block paved driveway, its been down 25 years, used the Red & The Grey Block Magic, Grey border, Red infill, 2 coats of each following the manufacturers guide. And I have to say what a transformation, passers by look neighbours look, people have asked us who did our drive, it actually does look that good from what it was. Two coats easily applied using 9inch roller, I dont think we had one issue, once those colours where complete, leave to dry and then applied a further two coats of Matt clear sealant. Looks brilliant and we are so happy, and probably saved us a tidy amount not getting it redone, FairPlay well done Smartseal.

SmartSeal Block Magic Sealer(Red and Grey). Amazing product. Really amazed at the difference

By Jag Kainth From West Yorkshire

Lovely shades in both the red brick and gray block paving seals. Bought the samples first tried and now buying the larger quantities.

By Elsie White

the block magic sealer was very easy to apply, went on well and looks great

By Elaine Wilde

Ordered the samples of Red Block Magic and Silk Finish Sealer as my drive was looking very dull and patchy. Had to wait for the right weather conditions to try it and now that I have I will be ordering the larger containers of both, and everything else I need to apply them. The few block I tried them on look great. I only wish SmartSeal provided the Kiln Dried Sand as well. Companies only want to deliver bulk orders of the sand as the bags weigh 25kg, I'm going to have difficulty in collecting it myself.

By Elaine Wilde

Got a sample pot of red block magic for drives and did a test on 5 blocks. I was delighted with the results and have placed an order for products to colour and seal my drive.


Amazing product. Was surprised how much of a difference it made to my block paved patio, looks new. Would defiantly recommend.

By Conor Heffernan

Coated old block paving path which needed two coats of sealer, plus a clear coat, but results are worthwhile. Pleased with the result.

By J Pearson

fantastic results. Better than my wildest imagination. Biggest problem was trying to get the job done whilst getting interrupted by people asking where I got the block magic sealer from. Definitely recommend. As long has you do the prep work you will not be disappointed.

By Margaret Marshall

By Anne Laing From Portlethen Aberdeen

Having spent many hours, year after year clearing the weeds out of my patio I decided to clean and re-colour, then seal. It was the best thing I ever did, and now it even looks new again.

By Paul Beckett From Sheffield

The only problem that I had was waiting for a dry day after jetwashing the drive. I have given the block paving one coat of block magic and they look like new. I am waiting for another dry day to give them a second coat and then a coat of clear sealer. Block magic is very easy to use and dries very quickly.

By Geoff Campbell From coventry

Awesome stuff, really brought my driveway up to the colour i wanted. Support was good when i asked a question. All in all i am happy and now my next door neighbour wants his done too. pity i couldnt upload a photo as i took an birds eye view photo using a drone. what a difference.

By Martyn Jeffrey From Scotland

I used Block Magic as directed and my paving blocks look brand new. Neighbours have commented how good my blocks look and have now purchased Block Magic to transform their drive. Great product.

By Stuart From Coalville Leicestershire

excellent product easy to use great results

By Peter From Aberdeen

block magic is a really good block paving product my drive looks fantastic and all of the neighbours are commenting on it. The video that you can watch is a bit misleading as it tells you to add kiln sand after painting but as its bound to be an old drive you are doing up its not necessary. In fact its a problem to try and do it. Better to let your drive look like its solid patterned concrete as the paint will have covered the sand anyway.

Step-by-Step Video Guide

Restore the Original RED Colour of Old Block Paving

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 soak deeply into the paving totally transforming and protecting block paving driveways and patios. 'Block Magic' replaces 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. PLEASE NOTE: old or poorly conditioned pavers may require two coats of Block Magic to achieve a uniform finish.


Step-by-Step Video Guide

  • 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 (coverage may be reduced to around 2.5 m per litre on old pavers)
  • 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 3.0m per litre (around 2.5m per litre on old pavers). Make sure the colour has dried evenly across the block paving before applying 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.
