    New pavers were installed 3 weeks ago. Contractor used a water based penetrating sealer which has a Sodium Methyl Siliconate base. Since the install of our pavers be sealer they have turned white. FYI - we had quite a bit of rain recently. The contractor believes an efflorescence remover will remove the white film on the pavers, however, the product they plan to use is made by Glaze N Seal, which does not have good reviews from customers. You have two products on your website: SB-488 Efflorescence & Rust Remover and Efflo Off. Please give me your opinion on which product you recommend. I have included a photo. Thanks.

      Without removing the sealer first you most likely cannot remove the white discoloration. We do not have a stripper that will remove this type of sealer. Might want to ask GlazeNSeal for help.

        Thanks for your prompt response. My contractor has talked to a rep from GlazeNSeal. They recommend trying the Efflorescence remover.

    Does the Clemons Concrete and Paver Sealer Stripper remove water-based penetrating sealer? If not, do you sell a product that does? We had pavers installed less than a month ago and they have already turned white. From previous comments it looks like the sealer was either defective or not put on properly. I assume removing the sealer is our only option to see if we can get the pavers back to their original color. Thank you for your advice.

      It removes acrylic-based sealers that are either water or solvent-based. Send pictures of the current condition and what sealer was used prior?

    I am wondering if I can get a sample size of the Aromatic 100. I tried an efflorescence remover from another company but it didn't work so I'm assuming it's moisture stuck under my sealer. I hate the white and want to remove it but don't want to buy a lot in case it doesn't work. Thanks!

      Sorry, but we do not sell samples of the A-100.

        No prob! Thanks for the quick response. I'm just a bit torn if that's what it is, but it did start about a week after they sealed it and seemed to get worse after heavy rainfall. Do you think te A-100 would work for this?

          It could be many things. A poor sealer, trapped moisture, poly sand haze, etc. No way to say for 100% certain if this will fix it or not. You should have the company that installed the sealer look at it and fix it.

    I purchased 5 gallons of SuperSeal M and the instructions said if wanting to apply a second coat to do so while wet. I did attempt to do that but it just stayed on the surface and I didn't want it to pool for fear of leaving a heavy film. Now that it is dry is it possible to put a second coat or do I have to wait for a certain period of time ??? I'm very happy with the product just wanting to put another coat on if possible. Thank you.

      Do not over apply. At this point since it dried it will repel another coat if over applied.

        Thank you for your prompt reply !!!! Approximately how long would you estimate before I can apply another coat (6months, 1 yr.) ??? How will I know when to apply it ?? Thank you.

          More like 3-5 years. Only apply again when the surface becomes porous or does not bead water anymore.

    I have some beams on our front porch that were stained with Sikkens. We're adding a bunch more beams that are still unfinished. The beams get direct sun exposure all afternoon. They're made out of ash. I'm got some samples about a year ago and am thinking of sanding off the Sikkens on the beams that have it and finishing with something else. There are some tiny cracks between the wall stone and beams that will be impossible to sand. What do you recommend in a medium brown stain/sealer for ash wood with extreme sun and vertical water exposure (no eave trough over these)? Any thoughts about the areas that can't be sanded?

      Try Armstrong Clark in Natural Oak or Rustic Brown. We would need to see pictures of the areas that cannot be sanded. If very minor, the new coating should blend.

        Thank you for replying! The beams are about 18' tall that are already finished. So the crack goes for about 18' on 2 sides. I bought some rubber detail sander thingies for sanding by hand but even they won't fit in some of the gaps. There are more unfinished beams than finished (took us a few years...) The current color is not what I want. It's too orange.

    I have a new travertine stone lanai (partial roof over 250 sq.ft and screen enclosure over 500 sq.ft. What would be the best sealer for new travertine. I do not wish to enhance the color of the stone and only want a matt finish. It cannot be slippery as it will be getting wet with rain etc. down here in Florida. Also what would be the best method of application (brush, roller, pump sprayer) and how many coats. Thank you.

    I have been sealing my exposed aggregate every year. It has a milky looking finish. Also the wet look fades in 4 to 6 weeks. Will Super Seal 30 tinted sealer cover the milky looking finish.

    I have a IPE patio set . I have stripped and neutralized. I love the color of the wood . Was looking on your website for sealers that retain the color without darkening. You recommend “Flood CWF for hardwood “ I can’t see where I can order it ? No buying options and when I go to search bar and put in description nothing comes up. Can you please send me a link to order and is it really clear won’t change the color ? I like the natural.


    Thanks

      Not sure why you say this ? “Flood CWF for hardwood” states it does have UV protection, in description, in the clear. I don’t mind the graying, prefer it don’t want a pigment in the sealer. It is shown on the website but NO way to purchase on the page

        We discontinued the Flood product from our site because it did not work well. Also, while they called it "clear", it was not a true clear but tinted. No different in color than say Defy Hardwood stain in Natual Pine. In essence Floord was lying about it being clear and another reason why we do not sell it anymore.

        BTW, it is impossible for a true clear (no tint at all) to have UV protection. I must be tinted.

      We do not suggest the Flood products. Try Armstrong Clark or Defy Harwood stains. Clear coatings will not protect from UV graying. You will need a tinted stain. https://www.opwdecks.com/exoticwoodstains.htm

    Bought Armstrong Clark cedar semi transparent stain for a new yellow-wood pressure treated, dock I aged for 3 months. Did the 2 stage clean & brightener yesterday. Got dried in full sun.

    Weather forecasts clear on rain today. Just when I finished the staining of course it started raining for about 20 minutes. Damn FL!! Can't predict anything. So essentially zero drying time before it was hit with rain lasting 20 minutes.

    It looks OK. I have more stain and can do a 2nd coat after things dry out. What should I do?

    Thanks in advance.

      Wait until the rain stops and dries to assess. Nothing you can do about it right now.

        Let it dry well and gave it a second coat. It soaked it up well so it was needed. Rain didn't do any harm.

    I use defy extreme semi transparent stain on a cedar sided wood house. What are your thoughts on using a stain paid wet on wet vs. using a brush wet on wet? Just in looking it seems like the stain pads may be a bit faster.

    Is the Sb 600 what I would use in Nebraska on a paver patio?

    I want it to enhance the color and have a wet look.

    How many coats of SB 600 can you put on pavers
  • We will reply to your comment shortly
    James Coley · 09/01/2020
    I put a good coat of the SB600 on my patio pavers and then four hours later after it had dried, I put another light coat on top of that. I am not getting the beading result that I expected plus it did not enhance the color. Should I put another coat down?
    Thank you for your response.
