    Have 3 projects. One is concrete outdoor fully exposed patio. A lot of oak trees. Patio had heavy mold which was pressure washed. Want color seal to avoid growth of mild and repeal water. Next I have a covered l shape patio. Shows just superficial dirt from dog and person traffic. Want colored easy apply solution . Finally do you recommend sealing brick of house. I have worked to remove most of effervescence with various chemicals but wondered about sealing it

    Is there a sealer for brick pavers in North Carolina that will not turn white due to freeze/thaw climate?

    I sealed our driveway about 10 years ago with xylene based H&C concrete sealer.  No color.. just clear.  It has held up very well, but most areas are in need of a recoating; it is back to bare concrete.    It was a high gloss product.  I would prefer a flat or matte finish.  Do you have a xylene based sealer that I could use over the H&C?   For some reason H&C is impossible to find, and I really like using your TWP products, so I assume your concrete products are excellent as well.

    We have built a barndominium and are planning on leaving the concrete floor inside our living area un-covered (no carpet or laminate installed). We would like to seal to protect and for aesthetics. What sealer do you recommend? We believe we would like a lower gloss finish.

    Have exposed concrete driveway, never been sealed. Want a low gloss or matte finish.Would Super Seal 25 work vs Super Seal 30? Are either non-slip as driveway is sloped?

    Just had installed a deck with concrete pavers and polymeric sand. How long should I wait before applying SB600?

      You can do it now as long as the pavers are clean and free of any polysand dust on top of the pavers.

    I have a concrete fountain which was originally stained in the carved crevasses.  It's about 10 years old and I'd like to get at least another 10 years out of it.  I'm looking for a matte sealer for the whole fountain including the 2 bowls.  Hopefully one that I don't have to reapply every other year.

      Penetrating sealers will not work for water fountains or over a concrete stain, sorry.

    CindyLou here, 64 but very capable. I have a new concrete small driveway and parking area, 3 weeks old, simple concrete/ brush finish. Im looking at SB5000 and like the reviews and product info blocks stain and water, invisible. good choice? I have about 645 sq ft to do only. live in WA state so rains alot. Am I making a mistake thinking I can apply on my own? (after cures 30 days of course) can an individual order it from you? Im thinking 8 gal? or just get 10 and have extra for my retaining wall

        750-100? do you mean 750-1000? but don't I also need 2 coats? =1300 sqft is it better to use spray and backroll, or just sponge on with paint pad..

          The Sealer Store · 08/09/2021
          750-1000 is correct. One coat is normal but you can add a second if desired. Just spray, do not backroll it.

    I live in NW Oregon so lots of rain. Had a large driveway size concrete pavers put in 3 months ago. What do you recommend that will give it a semi wet look that will also protect from stains. Also, needs to be allowed use in Oregon. Why water based vs acyrlic based and it cannot yellow or put a white coat on the pavers. Thanks!

    Can SB-350 or 600 be used to seal an exposed aggregate drive way and brushed concrete patio?  Do these products products provide the same protection as the SuperSeal products?

      They can be used on aggregate but the Super Seal 30 is your best option for the aggregate.

      Hello,

      Sealers will not prevent deterioration of a brick wall. In addition, shiny sealers are designed for horizontals decorative surfaces, not brick walls.

    What do you recommend as a flat/matte sealer over an older concrete pool deck and an older concrete driveway? The pool deck has some spalding spots and small cracks (1/32 - 1/16" wide). I would like to repair (fill) those areas before sealing - what products would you recommend to do the repairs that would be compatible with the sealer recommended & how long do I need to wait after repairing (filling) the concrete cracks & spalds before sealing? I will pressure wash the concrete before applying sealer. Thank you.

    I had water base sealer on my pavers and they turned white. I used paver stripper from you and cleaned the paver 3-4 times with 3300 PSI pressure cleaner. Most of the sealer is off but I can’t get that white haze off. What else can be done to get the white haze off before sealing with sealer

    We have an 1000 sq ft addition to our home, we colored the concrete when it was poured. It has a smooth troweled finish and would like to have a semi-gloss look. Do we need to etch on can we just apply product. Help

      No need to etch.

        What product would you suggest we use. It is indoors but we can open windows and doors for ventilation ?

          The Sealer Store · 05/29/2020
          Our products are all exterior. You can use them indoors but you will have a strong odor for many days until it dissipates as the product is solvent-based. Is that okay?

    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!
