The paving will start to lose colour if not sunlight resistant, leaving it looking dull and less vibrant. Vehicle and foot traffic will wear down the paving, as well as pressure washing.

Patio Perfect’s essential block paving cleaner is the ideal product for this. Of course, if the patio, driveway or path you are treatment has only just been laid, cleaning will not be required. It is recommended that the clean is carried out a week before the application of a block paving sealer. This will ensure the surface has thoroughly dried out after the clean.
Before applying the sealer, make sure there is no debris present. Wear protective gloves, eyewear and a mask to apply. Apply the block paving sealer evenly and thinly with either a sprayer, mop, paintbrush or roller. Do not let the formula form marks of puddles and do not dilute it. Leave to dry for around one hour and apply another coat. This time apply the sealer in the opposite direction to help form a smooth finish. A third coat can be applied if necessary. Our products have consistently outperformed competing products such as Thompson block paving sealer.
Once you have treated your block paving surface with our sealer, it will be protected. Going forward, it would benefit from regular basic maintenance.
