    I have tried them all
    Resiblock and adseal are good but very very expensive
    I have now found a supplier who I have used for 2 year and it's just as good and a third of price
    I can get it very cheap for you has I've become pally with the owner
    When sealing it really does give a amazing effect and highlight the colours in the stone
    Always spray the paving makes the sealer go further and much more even coat and takes a hour to do a big drive
    Make sure the spayer is washed out well after or it will seal up all the joints like glue and you will have to throw away
    Sealer cleaner is expensive so what I do is poor a little petrol into it and spray it through and it's like brand new!!!
    I can make more of sealing a drive then cleaning it

    Yeh that's exactly what's just happened to me done a cheap price for washing and sanding just to test out my new kit from Ben at Rutland pumps. Then sold him the sealing for almost twice what I charged for the above.

    Up to how long after washing and resanding can you leave it untill you seal it ? I think we have rain for the next week where I am so can't get back to do the job.

    Any chance Stevie you can pm me where you get you sealer from I will put a good word in for you :)

    Am I right in saying it's fine to do tho if you have a good sweep down ect first ? And up to how long again untill the sealer is no good and needs to be re pressure washed and sanded and re sealed again ? Sorry to be picking your brain like this on a Friday nite but all questions custy asked that I didn't have a clue about.

    THNAKS STEVIE :)

    Sealing on blocks lasts well specially if give 2 good coats
    It will set the sand like mortar as well
    How long it lasts all depends on the drive conditions light and drainage etc
    Does look mint tho
    You must get the surface really clean which isn't hard because anything in the blocks will be sealed there
