What kind of driveway or patio cleaning equipment would you recommend?

A standard power washer will do the job, but one with a rotary head* style accessory is recommended for driveway cleaning and patio cleaning. As a general rule, the more powerful the washer, the less time it will take.


Will my block paving or pattern imprinted concrete look shiny once sealer has been applied?

As a rule of thumb how the paving looks when damp, is how it will look once treated with sealer. The majority of people feel this gives the paving a ‘fresh look’ and are very happy that the original colour has been restored.

Yes, Color Pave can supply all the necessary paving cleaning equipment, paving sealer application tools and materials required for any project. We can also offer full technical support and guidance if required.

Block Paving

After my driveway has had block paving sealer applied, how easy is it to clean off new oil and dirty stains?

Once sealer has been applied the block paving will be far less porous so any further staining will be easily removed. In most cases undiluted washing up liquid will be sufficient. In bad cases we advise the use of an Oil Stain Remover to solve the problem.


What are the major benefits of applying block paving sealer to my driveway?

If your block paving has sealer applied properly then any future deterioration will be extremely minimal. The acrylic sealer enhances the colour of the block paving, minimises colour loss from ultra violet light, protects against oil stains, weeds and algae growth. It also solidifies the sand in the joints of the block paving which gives further overall protection.


Why should I use your paving sealer, I have found other cheaper products available?

We could also make our products cheaper, by using lower quality materials, but long term this would just lead to disappointed customers.


After researching several products I am confused about sealer coverage ratios, can you help?

Yes, at Color Pave we are always looking to give accurate advice, not just ‘sell you some sealer’, any one can do that. With this in mind we recommend a coverage ratio of 3sq metres per litre. You can spread it a lot thinner than sometimes stated with other products, but long term you will be dissapointed with the results.
