Paving Sealers

Driveway cleaning comparisonThe Driveway Doctor is often asked what is so good about the sealers you use compared to what you can buy in the shops. Which is a fair question.

For block paving sealing and printed concrete sealing the quality of the raw materials within the sealer is paramount and just as important are the quantities used in the mix.

Paving sealers are generally described in the trade as:





Paving sealer equipmentThe term "SOLIDS" stands for Acrylic or Resin and the references to low, med and high are a guide to how much Acrylic or Resin is within the product.

The quantity of Acrylic or Resin in the product will directly relate to how well the paving is sealed and how long it will last, so more resin = better seal and longer lasting.

Most paving sealers (99.9%) that are available in DIY stores/ warehouses and builders merchants are are LOW SOLIDS, you won't find it written on the tin and the staff will have no idea what this means.

After applying this type of product it will initially look sealed for about a month and then you'll be back to where you were before sealing, and from a professional point of view this would result in call backs from customers.

The Driveway Doctor uses Premium Ultra High Solids Sealer, this product will still be visable on your paving surface in excess of 5 years later, and in our opinion is the best in terms of quality, thickness, durability and finish.

Sealed drivewayLastly, don’t assume that Low solid paving sealers are cheaper to buy, for example:

50 sq mtrs of block paving/ driveway will require 25 litres of paving sealer

Thomsons by Ronseal is £24.95 per 5 ltr = £124.75 (from most DIY stores and merchants)
