    Evening all, Ive been asked to give a guarantee on sealing a drive, never been asked this before, im opting to use Thompsons one coat block paving and patio sealer but it dosent say how long it will last, how long would you expect a mid range sealer like that to last before weeds etc start coming through? or do you not offer any sort of idea of how long its likely to last?

    this is the product http://www.thompsonsweatherproofing.co.uk/media/1180/one-coat-patio-block-paving-seal.pdf

    any help very much appreciated.

    regards

    Ben

    Never give a guarantee on the finished product. Only give a guarantee on the workmanship. So if you do it all the way it's supposed to be done, then that is all you can do. If they want more then that I would be getting alarm bells, and be walking away.

    I say there's no guarantee but the supplier recommended life is 2 to 3 years applied write I now I can go back 1 to 2 years later and there's no weeds just surface dirt which can be just washed off Thompsons well you don't like to make much profit!!
