RE: Brick Paver Sealer Questions
Quoting Ann E.:
I hired a company to strip, clean, and seal my brick paver patio by my pool. The bricks are now extremely slippery when wet although we were told there would be a top layer of Shark Grip. What would be best to fix this issue? Is there a top layer we can put on ourselves to be non slip when wet?

Hello, you cannot add a sealer on top and stop this issue. Do you know what sealer they used and the chemical makeup of it?

Yes the Supreme Shield SB-600 would be your best option for this.

I have areas of recently sealed driveway pavers were I did not clean the access sealer off in time and it left white sticky spots on areas of driveway. It was a water based wet look sealer. Is there anything I can use to break down and cleans off access sealant?

RE: Brick Paver Sealer Questions
If the surface is porous, then you can use the Supreme Shield. test by dropping some water on the area. If it absorbs, then you are good.

re: WILL SUPER SEAL 30 SERVE AS A BARRIER FOR WEEDS?
SS30 does not act like a barrier. If you do saturate the sealer into the sand, it will help to harden the sand. This will minimize erosion and weed growth.

To remove the poly haze you will first need to remove the SS30. This would be our Brick Paver Sale stripper and pressure washing. After use our cleaner degreaser, then the white vinegar to remove the poly haze.

Hazing
Hey guys - Last summer I decided to re-sand my driveway using polymeric sand (Alliance Gator) and seal it up with SS30. Due to the 7 year old pavers never being sealed, the top layer of the pavers have lost their flat texture and have tiny pores in them. After them being treated for about month with the SS30, white hazing has occured. I'm assuming this is because the polymeric sand became lodged into those pores which ended up being sealed by the SS30. I'm currently trying to find a solution to having the haze removed. Any idea ? I've tried Xylene, 50/50 white vingar mix, Alliance Gator Efflorescence cleaner, and pressure washing, all with no success. I was thinking about using a mixture of Muriatic Acid (HCL Acid) / efflorescence cleaner next. Any Suggestions ? Will the Seal Stripper on your website help ? Hope to hear from you guys soon. Thanks!

Bad Power Washing
My pavers are about 20 years old. I have sealed them about 5 years ago. I was power washing and did not realize the power washer was leaving lines all over the place. Did not notice them when pavers were wet. Was going to seal this year, but was wondering if I should wait another year for line to go away, or will they not show after sealing?

re: NEW INSTALLATION - HOW LONG BEFORE SEALING?
Yes you should wait to see if there is any efflorescence. You can seal with the Super Seal 25 or SuperSeal 30. They will minimize weed growth but no sealer will stop weed growth. It is not possible to fix the rocking issue with a sealer.
Quote
New installation - how long before sealing?
My wife and I live in Florida, and we just had pavers installed on our driveway, walkway, and lanai, and a new patio installed. The contractor used Tremron StoneHurst pavers in a custom color. We specified that we wanted textured pavers on the driveway and walkway, but smooth pavers for the lanai and patio.

The contractor ordered textured pavers for everything, but installed the pavers upside down for the lanai and patio.

I am a little concerned about the Lanai. Rather than tear out the existing concrete floor, they laid about ΒΌ" of sand as a base to set the 1" thick pavers on, and cemented the pavers in place along the outer edge. Some of the pavers are now (one week after installation) rocking. :sad:

We were told by the contractor to wait about a month before sealing, otherwise we would have to deal with efflorescence.. Huh?

Also, the contractor would not use polymeric sand as he has had trouble with it in the past.

We would like to seal EVERYTHING, especially the driveway to prevent staining. We would also like to keep weeds and mold from growing in the joints. Finally, we would like to stop the pavers on the lanai from rocking if possible.

Pavers scuff marks
I have a new paver porch and the bricks have scuff marks from the palette or stamper. I figure the only way to hide them is to bring a wet look to the bricks since they look fine when rain wet. I have searched the web for hours and seem to get some conflicting opinions.. At this point I am thinking a breathable ( patio is only 2 weeks old and I don't want to wait) solvent based, acrylic wet look, low or semi gloss finish.....I presume the right low gloss will remove threat of a slippery surface which is a concern. Any product suggestions? Scuff marks are everywhere!!!!! !

re: BEST SEALING SOLUTION FOR A BRICK PATIO WITH A CONCRETE UNDERSURFACE

best sealing solution for a brick patio with a concrete undersurface
My 13x13 foot back patio has a brick "floor?" sloping into a drain..On heavy rains or when the leaves get in, the deck pools with water and drains over time. Unfortunately, Im pretty sure it was installed over concrete, as the bricks even when completely isolated from one another, still will not come up. The joints are about one index finger separated, at most. The bricks are red and old.
Recently, my handiman power washed the joints free, and was going to put in locking sand, when it occurred to him that the sand would come lose and either track into my house or clog the drain.
We considered polymeric sand but rejected this because of the concrete base, as well as their tendency to leave a glaze.
I doubt these red bricks are very porous.
So now we are considering some kind of sand joint stabilizer. Does this seem the best way to go? will the nonporous brick cause any problems?
Should I just get it into the joints, or should I spread it over the bricks as well? Are their products which will minimally discolor or add glaze (or slipperiness!) to the bricks?

Which product (or products) would you recommend and how much for a 13x13 patio?

Thanks in advance for your advice

re: PAVER SEALEANT
The SS30 is for sealing decorative surfaces like the brick pavers. If you get the sealer into the joints and and it saturates the sand then yes it will help to prevent weeds. You do not use the SS30 on regular concrete. You would want a concrete sealer that does not change the appearance for the regular concert pad. The SuperSeal-M.

Washing does not remove sand dust once hardened from water. You would need to chemically wash it or use a white vinegar was and rinse. It is not always an issue. Just wanted yo make you aware.
Quote
-
awesome - thanks for the reply! Looks like i'll be ordering the SS30 from you guys today.

Do you suggest I wash it all up using a power washer on the wide angle setting to make sure all the excess sand on the actual pavers is fully gone or will that ruin the sand that it already set in between the joints ?
Quote
re: SS25 or 30 ?
Both the SS25 and the 30 will give the wet look. The 30 is just a little shinier. Make sure that the poly sand dust is not on top of the pavers before sealing. The "poly haze" issue with these sands is a known problem and the dust can turn white under the sealer.
Quote
SS25 or 30 ?
Hey - thanks for all your advice you guys provide on this site.

I have a quick question. I initially had my driveway done about 10 years ago with pavers. The contractor used regular sand to fill the joints and you can already imagine the outcome over the years. This past weekend I power washed the entire driveway and removed all the old sand/dirt/grime (what was left of it, at least), weeds, algae, etc. I then apply the alligator polymeric sand and sealed up the joints quite nicely. We've had constant sun these past few days and everything is dried up as a rock.

Now my question, since the pavers havent been sealed with anything since the life of the driveway, which sealant do you suggest ? They have to be extremely porous at this point due to them being untreated for close to a decade . I was leaning towards the SuperSeal 30 to achieve the wet look of the pavers. Is there a noticeable difference between the SS25/30 ? Thank you for your help once again.

re: Richcliff scrapes and polymeric sand algae
Need to pressure wash first to remove dirt, algae, etc.
Quote
re: Richcliff scrapes and polymeric sand algae
Thanks for the quick response. Would you recommend pressure washing prior to application or just using a broom to sweep off the excess sand (considering an unusual amount of the polymeric sand has already come up)? It sounds like applying the sealant will get rid of the scratches/scrap es, but how about the algae on the sand in the joints? Thanks for the help.

re: Richcliff scrapes and polymeric sand algae
Try the SuperSeal Matte version.

Richcliff scrapes and polymeric sand algae
I installed Richcliff patio with Courtstone accent early this year but have already noticed it is fading, has scrapes, and the polymeric sand has algae and is quickly eroding. What product would you recommend to give the patio the deep/rich color and wet look, while protecting it from scrapes and reducing erosion? Oh, and I also have young kids, so slipperiness is a factor. Thanks for your recommendations .

re: Polymeric sand WITH Joint Sealer or just choose One?
Using both a poly and a join sealer is best. It will give you double the joint stabilizing effectiveness. 1 inch is fine for depth. You cannot add additives with those sealers but they are not typically slippery.
Quote
Polymeric sand WITH Joint Sealer or just choose One?
I can't find an answer specific to this but didn't read through hundreds of these posts. This seems like it would be a popular question. I have 15 year old patio in hose we just bought with cement pavers that have never been sealed and the moss/weeds are horrible. There is much sand loss in joints so I used a pressure washer to get as much sand/dirt out of the joints to start fresh. However I can't really get it down all the way to the entire depth of paver so in some spots it is only missing 1" of sand. So do I put polymeric sand like the SEK Surebond I heard is good. At 1000+ SQ ft it will cost me about $300. Then I still need to seal and most sealers are 40-50/gal with 100 sq ft/gal they say. So that is at least $500 there. Plus I want to seal the retaining wall to match the wet look so that is at least another 300sq ft. SO do I just put in regular sweep sand at $5/bag vs the $30/bag stuff that is polymeric if I can't clean all the way down and I intend to seal anyways? The sealers like the SB-7000 or 7700 (I have lots of shade under the deck with moss) are joint stabilizer as well. So to me if that sealer does it's job, why do I need to do both? Also what is the experience with slipperiness when wet with the 7000 or 7700 and are there additives you can put in like sprinkling sand on it as when they do a garage floor with epoxy?

brick sealer
We have installed a brick patio around our pool and now want to seal the brick. We're in New York and don't plan to be in this house very long - so longevity isn't an issue. Biggest considerations are keeping the sand from the very small joints from going in the pool, and keeping weeds down. Next issues are appearance - would like it to look better, more "finished", wet look is ok but not too shiny. Darkening the brick a bit is fine. Ease of application is key; we're doing this ourselves, but my husband seems to think a roller might be easier than a spray. What would you recommend? Thanks very much.

Sheen and shine is the same thing. The SS Matter is basically the SS25 but with an additive to lower the luster. You cannot apply with the HVLP.

SB-6000 is a good option as well.

I guess I should also consider SB-6000 Wet Look Sealer. The options are a bit confusing.

Which sealer, and application question
I have a new 350 sq foot paver patio in a low sun area. It also has a 24'x 24" retaining wall. I would like to seal in a way that I have the color of a wet paver without a high gloss. To me a sheen is acceptable, a shine not so much.

I suspect there is a trade-off between shine and color enhancement, and for that reason am wondering how much color difference would I see between SuperSeal 25 and SuperSeal Matte?

Lastly, I have a 3 stage HVLP sprayer -- any reason this would not be a good choice for application?

Sealing pavers on patio
Our contactor put in new patio sealers. I could not get him to come back to seal them (he said to give it a year). We then recently used a water based exterior sealer which does repel water but did not give us the darker look on the pavers that we wanted. If we leave it for a year or so will we be able to use a better quality gloss sealer which will give us the darker color and the wet look that we wanted? We live in Colorado and usually have pretty decent snowfall in the winters which I presume will affect the seal job that we have just done. Thanks!

Question on paver sealers
Hello: I want to apply a wet-look sealer on pavers on my back porch and yard pathways (installed 3-4 years ago). I used SUREBOND SB-9000 on my front porch and it worked fairly well although I still got some whitish areas that I cannot correct. I have considered using that again, but it is very expensive (cost $200 for 5 gal) and hard to find. I have read nothing but bad reviews of the Behr and Valspar sealers that I can find at Home Depot and Lowes. Can you recommend something you handle that is better than the Behr/Valspar but less than $200 per 5 gal? I can consider either solvent or water based but would like to apply it via a sprayer (I hand-rolled the SB-9000 and it was quite rough on my older knees and back!). thanks

Hi,
Do you offer any products that prevent water penetration through bricks on a chimney? The chimney on our house has painted brick as purchased and we are getting water damage in the ceiling on our main level. It seems like as the paint chips away and wears off over time, it gets worse. Any products I have looked into in the past were not compatible with a painted surface. There is no roof leak but the bricks just above the leaky ceiling are wet in the attic with no wick path so it is seems to be an absorption issue.

Wet Look...SB8700?
Getting ready to reseal my year old concrete pavers. Do I understand right that only one product can do what two did? Also, is the SB8700 a water based product and will it give you the look of a "water sprayed" wet look when done?

ashley393, more than likely you have a buildup of coatings and it could be trapping moisture in underneath, creating the white spots. Try to not seal this time but use a solvent to restore the shine and remove the white spots:

re: flagstone sealer and wet look
There is a new Surbond sealer that we will be adding shortly that gives a wet look and stabilizes the joint sand. This is called Surebond SB-8700 with Anti-Fungal. It will do the job of both the SB-1300 and the SB-6000.

We do have it in stock but you would need to order over the phone for now.

flagstone sealer and wet look
So, last summer I paid a contractor to install a flagstone patio. Overall, it's not bad, but they rushed the job towards the end and I'm just not comfortable having them come back. They used surebond polysweep, but since they rushed the application, after a few thunderstorms I lost bit and pieces of the polymeric sand. My plan is to fix those areas with surebond x-treme wide polymeric come spring. My question is this; I want a wet look to the flagstone, but at the same time I want to go the extra mile to apply something that will give added protection to locking the polymeric together even stronger. Do I have this correct, that I would first need to apply SB-1300 Joint Stabilizing Sealer and then follow that with SB-6000 Wet Look Sealer? There is no single surebond product that both stabilizes the joints and provides a wet look? Can this wet look product be applied on top of the stabilizer sealer? thx much!

re: Sales Manager
The Paver Stripper does remove old acrylic based sealers that have turned white. For the sealer, look at the SuperSeal 25 or the SuperSeal30.

Sales Manager
Hello,

I am wanting to try samples of a product that would give red/brown brick pavers a wet look and 'darken'/enhanc e the brick appearance. Some of the bricks are different colors (some ashy white) from old sealant so I want to strip them and apply a product that would make them look consistent.

Does your paver sealer stripper work well?
What would be the best sealer for my job?

You can apply the Aromatic as much as you want to restore the nice shine and gloss. Very month or two if you want.

Sealer for travertine pavers
Good morning. Which sealer would you recommend for travertine pavers? They are installed in the driveway.
Thank you.
Quote
-
More then likely you need to strip all the old coatings off and start over with a fresh surface. Best would be the Concrete Paver Sealer Stripper that we sell. Apply in sections of 100 sq. feet, wait 10 minutes, pressure wash off.

I just had a paver patio installed 4 months ago, it was sealed. I had grass coming up between the joint so I filled it we fine sand. The I decided to re-seal the whole patio. The next morning I had white blotches all over the pavers. How do I restore the pavers to its original color?

Thank you for your assistance.

re: superseal30
Adam360, you can apply another coat on top. If the first coat did not become shiny then your surface must have been extremely porous. A second coat will now dry closer to the surface, leaving a higher sheen.

superseal30
I applied a coat of superseal25 on brick pavers in Florida. Pavers do not look shiny at all. Can I apply a 2nd coat of superseal30 over the coat of superseal25 for more shiny look? How long do I have to wait to applay 2nd coat?

I would use the SuperSeal30 for the driveway and the SB-6000 for the patio slate.

I live in Houston, and have a good sized driveway of brick pavers to seal. Would you recommend SB-7000 or SuperSeal 30?
I also have over a 1000 sqft of patio slate and travertine. Would you recommend that either of those would also be OK for the stone?
Thanks very much.

re: supeerseal 25
It will not make a difference if you use a water based or solvent based sealer.

supeerseal 25
I am having a hard time getting enough dry days to completely dry my pavers. I like the superseal25 but have problems with water trapped in the pavers. If I used a water based product would the trapped moisturee still be a problem?

It is possibly that it will slightly slippery for the first month but not so much after that. The grip does not alter the look much or at all.
Quote

I am planning on using the SuperSeal 30 on an inclined paver driveway. How slick does it make the pavers? Do I need to use the Super Grip and does that change the appearance of the finish?
Quote
re: Concrete Paver Question
The SuperSeal25 does not apply with a plastic garden sprayer. You need to roll or use a heavy duty metal sprayer. Confirmation emails are sent immediately when orders are placed. As for the prep, the paver should be clean and free of any poly sand dust.
Quote
Concrete Paver Question
I put down a new concrete paver patio 3 weeks ago. I used Home Depot cafe rumblestone pavers with polymetric sand. I want to enchance the color and get a semi gloss shine so I have chosen SuperSeal25. I wanted to know what prep I made need to do prior to applying. Also I had planned to use a garden sprayer and 1/2" nap roller to back roll and wanted to know if this was the best way to apply.

Lastly I was supposed to get a confimation email when I ordered (6 hours ago), but I have not gotten anything yet. How long should I wait before I call?

I need to seal my concrete paver driveway, I want to protect the driveway from fading, oil stains, and want it look shiny (wet). What sealers are the best (water or acrylic based)? Provide few brands so I can match it to my budget.

Nathaniel, not sure as we are not familiar with the Valspar. Most likely you should strip to be on the safe side.
Quote

I just had my pavers in the driveway flipped so that side is virtually new. I cleaned them with muriatic acid/water mix and pressure washed them. I used a Valspar wet-look sealant but didn't achieve the dark wet look I expected. Can I put the superseal 30 over that or should I strip the entire driveway. It's 750 square.

Flagstone Sealers
I am looking for a sealer for a quartzite flagstone (very hard material) patio. I would like something with a wet look. I have tried Prosoco paver enhancer and Prosoco standoff. The enhancer made the stone way too dark and the standoff didn't really bring out the colors that much. Any suggestions?

Are pavers designed for water to penetrate in between
There is a new rain tax for all no porous surfaces.
Can I avoid rain tax by using pavers, how much water will penetrate in between pavers.

I would use the SuperSeal30. You would need about 8 gallons.

re: sealers
There is not one product that will do both. Try SB-1300 for sealing and hardening the sand and SB-6000 for darkening the brick.

sealers
Hello a few weeks ago we put down 100lb grey concrete blocks for the floor on an outside patio and used White concrete blocks for the steps. We want something that is going to seal the sand we have in between them but also darken the grey concrete blocks. He doesn't want the White blocks to look darker(as they do when wetting them down does) and just remain white. Would we have to use 2 different products for that or would just using the Supersealer25 work on both? We also live in Michigan if that makes a difference in product to use.

re: Wall and Paver Sealer Recommendation
Kirk, I would try the SuperSeal Matte or the SureBond SB-6000. The SuperSeal is solvent based while the Surebond is water based.

I have about 750 sq ft of patio and 200 face ft of seat wall.

Wall and Paver Sealer Recommendation
I live in Illinois. I recently installed a Unilock paver patio with seat walls. The seat walls are paver blocks from Lowes.

I'd like both the patio and the wall to have a "wet look" but not necessarily a gloss finish. I'd prefer a semi-gloss or matte for both.

What product(s) do you recommend for the pavers and walls? I'd prefer a solvent based sealer, but I am concerned that this may create a maintenance problem in the future if solvent based sealers aren't available and I need to re-seal with a water based sealer.
Thanks.

Either would work for you. For 800 sq. feet you would need about 8 gallon of the sealer.

I am trying to decide what sealer to use for my paver patio. I would prefer a matte finish but would be okay with a semi-gloss. The patio gets sun for maybe half the day. I would love something that seals the sand joints as well. I also would prefer rolling the sealer on. I live in NY so I am not sure if SuperSeal25 or SuperSeal Matte is available to me. I like that SuperSeal25 is available in 5-gallons and 1-gallons...I have 800 square feet to cover. What would you suggest?

You can try right now.

I just sealed by brick pavers. I now notice on the second coat that I have some areas of white milky streaks on pavers. HOw long do I have to wait to try the solvent on these areas.

Betty, You can add a sealer that adds a wet look like the SuperSeal 25 or the Surebond SB-6000

re: new medium gray cobblestone
It is probably efflorescence. I would try the SB-488. If that does not work then you may need a specialty cleaner that removes calcium deposits.

I just installed a patio made from new medium gray cobblestones. I have not sealed it yet. Many of the pavers have white square areas on them. I assume this is from water staining caused by them being stacked outside. Pressure spray does not take it off. Should I try the SB 488 efflorescence remover or do you recommend something else.

We had our pool deck refinished w/ the decorative stamped concrete process the final phase of which they sprayed a semi gloss sealer. Since we're on a wooded lot we had them power wash and reseal the deck again last year... a process they recommended anyway. I've an eye to doing it myself this year (this week!); which sealer do you recommend? Theirs was very slippery when wet, is there a superior alternative? Thanks!

Do you want to just seal or do you want to enhance the color and leave a gloss of some level?

Brick paver sealer
Hello,

I recently had a home built 6 months ago in Tampa. I'd like to have our brick paver driveway sealed so that it can be protected against stains, but also be able to play basketball on it.

In addition, I'd like to protect the pool deck area but don't want to make it a situation where people could slip and fall.

I welcome your recommendation for each of these applications.

Thank you!

Jay

re: Best paver sealer for Phoenix sun?
The SuperSeal30 is too thick to be sprayed with most sprayers. The SuperSeal25 can be sprayed using a high quality concrete sealer sprayer such as the Chapin 1949.
Quote
re: Best paver sealer for Phoenix sun?
I just noticed Superseal 30 says it cannot be sprayed. Is that correct?
Quote
re: Best paver sealer for Phoenix sun?
Either would work for you in Phoenix. Typically not slippery when wet after full curing of a couple of weeks. If the "white" stuff keeps coming back then it is probably not efflorescence but something else. I would just clean it with water as needed if that seems to work.
Quote
Best paver sealer for Phoenix sun?
Looks like superseal 25 or 30 are the best recommended sealers. Do both hold up equally well in the extreme temps in Phoenix? Our back yard consists of pavers and a pool.
Will the pavers be slippery?
I have some patchy, mild efflorescence. What is the best treatment for that? Seems to happen during the cooler temps during the winter. I can usually remove with plain water and scrubbing.

re: applied Techniseal color boost
You really only have 2 options:

1. Strip it all off and start over.
2. Add more sealer with a product like Super Grip (www.opwdecks.com/.../)

re; Paver Sealer Mixing
Hard to say for sure without knowing the specifics of the Greenwave. SuperSeal25 is a solvent based sealer than can be applied over other solvent based sealers as long as they previous sealer has not failed by discoloring or blushing. You might want to get a sample to test: Brick Paver Sealer Samples (opwdecks.com/.../...)

Paver Sealer Mixing
I had my driveway pavers sealed about 3 yrs agon with "GreenWave" product that is supposed to be Polymeric Acryllic Co-polymer, (low gloss). I am thinking about coating it again, but this time myself, and could I use the Super Seal 25 over the Greenwave without removing it first?

Help with sealing brick pavers
I currently have brick pavers in my kitchen and I know that when they were originally installed that there is some kind of poly that was applied topically to the floor because it has yellowed in places in the grout. What can I put on this existing floor to make it really shiny. Do I have to remove the polyurethane first and if so how to do this on a brick floor and what should I put on it. The floor just looks dirty. Help

re: Home Owner
I have never heard of Cobble Lock. Water based sealers may turn white. It depends on the quality of the acrylic.
Quote
Home Owner
Is the Cobble Lock sealer brand the right product to seal brick pavers for the first time? The pavers are in great condition.
Will this product turn white after a few months? I was told that it will not turn white as it is a "water-based sealer??
Our pavers are one year new and will be pressure cleaned begore sealing. Rerstoration is not needed.
Your expert opinion will be help.

re: Drive Paver Sealer
I would go with a solvent based sealer such as the SuperSeal 25 or SuperSeal 30. They are both styrene acrylics that allow the sealer to breathe, reducing the chance of white hazing.

Drive Paver Sealer
I have been sealing my paver drive with Dyco for about 6 years. Either I applied to many coats, or too heavy application. In any case it has become blotchy looking. I am in the process of stripping it all off with SoyGel (Franmar) which I am told will take me back to the original look. What do you recommend for a new coating. I want the "wet" look but not sure if I can use a water based sealer given the previous use of Dyco (xylene) Thanks

re: fighting weeds and mold
Acrylic is in both water based and solvent based brick paver sealers. If you do not want to change the appearance much then I would suggest the Surebond SB 1300 joint stabilizing sealer.

We're in Florida and fighting weeds and mold on our brick patio all time. We're resanding our bricks with polymer based sand and will be applying sealer when finished. Am considering 3 sealers.....wat er based, acrylic based, and xylene based. Which base do you recommend. We want the sealing to last as long as possible but don't want to discolor the bricks too much......but will accept some discoloring. I understand that water based is okay but doesn't last long and probably needs to be applied at least every two years......so it's probably down to acrylic and xylene......
and I'm at a bit of a loss here. Your opinions would be valued.
