    Hey SS,
    I'm in the process of installing some column wrap which is cultured stone (i.e. cement). Manufacturer says it doesn't need to be sealed but I think I want to anyway, especially since it tends to chip, and weather can be harsh. Any product recommendations? I have some leftover Low VOC Super Seal 25 from sealing my patio, but I can buy something different if needed. Thanks! Pic of current job and finished concept are attached.

    I am looking for a sealer for my Travertine Pool coping tile.  It is only around the pool edge with grout between the tiles.  It is a lighter color that really shows when wet and thus looking for a sealer with a 'wet' look but does not make it slippery.  Everything I find is for concrete only.  Thoughts.

    my son has a trex deck over a root cellar. Is there any type of covering that could be used to prevent moisture from getting into the spaces between planks

    Just got done making our screened porch into a 3 season room. Mahogny deck 25 yrs old sanded 40 grit to original color. Now to seal and seen this advice.
    Will the water base penetrate the mahogny? And any other suggestions?
    Thanks!

    Hello! We need your help!
    Our Ipe deck has been installed for about a year, and has gone gray. So of course we would like to put a sealant on it. So yesterday my husband (thankfully he is so willing to do these things!) did a sample area he first power washed, then used a Ben Moore cleaner product, then used a Ben Moore stripper product, and now the color (after one day of excessive heat over 100 degrees) looks like this:


    You can see on the right lower part of the photo you can see the uncleaned, gray area for comparison.
    So when you look at the next two photos you can see what the sample area where my husband pressure washed, cleaned, brightened, then added the Natural Stain using the Messmer sealant – he did this about a week or two ago.





    In the sun, it looks even brighter. But the thing is, I just absolutely hate this color! I like the color of peanut butter, or honey, but not this dark red!! Iccckkkkkkk!!!!
    Is there a different process or stain that can put us on the path towards getting a more brown color?
    Many thanks for your help here!!!

      Not understanding your question. IPE is a wood so why would that be suggested for a redwood fence??

      No color means zero UV protection and will gray in months.

    Hello, my log cabin is presently stained with Defy Extreme Cedartone stain, and requires a maintenance coat due to weathering. My logs have no mold or mildew, so I only need to remove surface dirt and grime. Could you please recommend a product that would work best to clean my logs without impacting the stain. Thanks.

    Good Morning, I have been using your stain on my deck for years and it is the best product hands down! I now have a new storage shed that has the T1-11 plywood rough hewn siding. I would like to have your recommendation on which stain to use on this wood. Thank you, John Vida

      Same as you used on your deck. Lasts twice as long on vertical wood.

    I live the Las Vegas area.  I have a pebblestone aggregate epoxy driveway.  What sealer should I use.  My wife likes the driveway to be shiny.  I ordered the samples for SS30 and the sp600.  Also I am not planning to apply  the samples until late Sept. when the weather is cooler.  I was told it is too hot to apply sealer on a driveway in the summer here. Is that correct and what temperatures to you suggest to do the job.  I have 640 feet to seal.  How much sealer do I need.
    thanks
    Jeff

      Look at the SS30. About 6 gallons. You can apply when temps are between 50-90.

    I just got delivery of 2 samples the supersealer 30 and the supreme 600.  Can I wait to September to apply them to the driveway since I live in Vegas area and it is too hot to apply now.  Will  the samples dry out by late September.  Once put them down we will choose which one to order from yourselves/
    Thanks

    I have new concrete pavers around my pool in Florida. I would like to get a sealer that will bring out the color of the pavers like a wet look sealer but am afraid it will be slippery around the pool. What is your recommendation?

    Are you the same people that made the Bio-Wash product that came in different colors? I think there was a Stripper, Cleaner, Brightener that were orange, green, and blue. They worked great! This was back in the late 90's early 2000's.

    I have a 4 year old PT deck (400sq. ft, partially shaded in summer).  I have used the Defy clear stain the last 3 years (after brightening and cleaning).  Not really pleased with the results after this time and was wondering if it will turn grey (preferred now) if I let it go for a while.  If so, can I use the clear stain afterwards?

    Thanks,

    Jeff

      Yes, it will gray naturally. You will need to remove the gray/oxidation when you apply another coat in the future.
