    Is there a sealer that can be used for Efflorescence on a garage cement block wall after cleaning it with an efflorescence remover? Thank you for your help!

      Sealers cannot prevent efflorescence.

    What is the best sealer for a concrete sidewalk? It's just a broom finish, not stained or anything. Was poured in June. Not interested in a glossy finish, would like to keep it pretty much the way it looks now. Thanks in advance!

    I have a stamped concrete driveway of about 1500 Sq ft in Toronto. It was installed about 6 years ago and never been sealed after initial installation. At a few locations, it also has pitting (eroded concrete). It has become dull in look but overall in good shape. Which sealant is best to protect, enhance the colour and look vibrant? Please also advise if I can add supper grip to make it less slippery. Thanks.

    I have a concrete exposed aggregate driveway, which was installed 6 to 8 years ago here in central Ohio. It has not been resealed since original installation. What is the best sealer for this project?

    Do you have a product suitable for sealing brick steps and paths that also has a mildew & mold preventative included?

    Do you have a product you recommend for sealing bluestone pavers? I prefer a natural or a wet look but no gloss. I am primarily interested in stain prevention, especially rust.

    We have a 55-60 year old home with Canyon stone face brick that has not had any sealer on it for at least 45 years, if ever. What product would you recommend to clean and seal it. Thank you

    Looking for wet-look sealer that will provide shine/gloss for my light tan colored concrete pool deck. It has a broom finish. Previously used Super Diamond Clear. I didn't think it lasted very long. Thx!

    We have stamped concrete walkways and porches. Does it matter what kind of sealant was applied previously or can I just clean it and reapply one with the finish I want? We don't know what the previous owner applied.

    I am looking to seal the concrete around by salt-water based pool. I would like a wetlook semi-gloss product. What do you recommend

    How strong does the pressure washer need to be to remove sealant normally?

      A pressure washer alone will not remove concrete sealers. You will need a chemicals stripper or similar while pressure washing. What type of stripper to use depends on what type of sealer you are actually trying to strip.

    Please recommend cleaner and sealer for waterproofing a concrete patio poured on corrugated steel pan. Prefer for the concrete to not have a glossy appearance after treatment. Can you also recommend a crack caulk that is compatible with the sealer? Should I caulk cracks before or after the sealer application?

    I just finished my fire place in a new construction. I am looking for something to seal the hearth stone. what product would be best to put a finish on it to seal it from stains and maybe darken the stone a bit because it was to be a taupe color and it looks white? also don't need a large amount. Thanks.

    You surface requires a wet look sealer with some gloss. A siloxane type sealer will not work to seal in colored stain.[/quote]

    Can you elaborate on why a siloxane type sealer will not work to seal in colored stain? Is it because the colored stain has reacted with the free lime? Or is there some other reason?
    thank you for your time,
    Tres

    Siloxane sealers are fully penetrating that create an internal barrier. They will not protect a dye/stain that is on the surface, You need a filing coating for this.

    We recently had our driveway and walkway redone. The concrete is a little over 30 days old. It is stamped and spray on colored. It also had the fiber additive. I am interested in a Silane/Siloxane deep penetrating water repellent sealer and my wife is interested in the "wet look". Is there a product that does both very well? If not, can you apply Silane/Siloxane product then apply the "wet look" product? What would be the downside (if any) for using both products?
    thank you for your time.

    Have a textured stamped "brick colored" concrete walkway and patio on the OR coast- lots of rain, rarely freezes, but a couple times year. Condition of concrete: sealant gone, a bit worn since put in 11 yrs. ago. Medium foot traffic. What do you suggest: Super Seal 25 or 30? The specs on both seem about the same, except 25 says Semi-gloss and 30 High gloss. Please advise. Thank you so much :-)

    Yes, either would work and the only difference is that the 30 is a little bit shinier than the 25

    I just had about 1000sf of new aggregate concrete added to my existing aggregate driveway. It was poured yesterday and my contractor wanted to seal it with SuperSeal30 today. It is my understanding, though, the concrete should cure 14-28 days before sealing, so we will wait. He told me the SuperSeal 30 comes in different colors- he recommended a brown for covering old and new- but I don't see any reference to color choices in the 5 gallon cans. Is there, and am I doing the right thing to wait 2-4 weeks to seal it? I live in hot, humid, central Virginia

    SuperSeal 30 is a cure and seal so it can be applied as soon as it is dry. We do not offer it in colors on our website.
