Check the weather and make sure you do this job on a clear day. Before applying sealer, examine the driveway. Scrape away any moss or weeds between the bricks. If there are any oil stains remove these with a stain and oil cleaner.
Brush away any debris with a stiffing brush. If you need to remove any ingrained dirt on the slabs before sealing, apply a Path & Patio Cleaner, brush vigorously with a stiff brush, then rinse down thoroughly with a hose. Alternatively use a pressure washer to remove the ingrained dirt and stains. Leave to dry.
Read the manufacturer’s instructions carefully. For best results apply the seal using a paint tray and either a long pile roller or masonry brush. The Paving seal forms a clear membrane that repels water, dirt, oil and fuel spills to prevent staining and reduce weather damage.
Plan how you are going to apply the seal. Make sure that you have an exit point when you have finished the job – you don’t want to trap yourself in a corner! A good idea is to start at the bottom of the driveway and work towards the front door. Read the manufacturer’s instructions to determine the drying time.
Apply an even coat of seal to ensure all surface irregularities are covered. Make sure the coating does not ‘pond’ in surface depressions. If it does, just use a masonry brush to re-distribute.
Leave to dry. For best results the seal should be left overnight before parking vehicles on it or subjecting it to heavy foot traffic.
