I have a36m2 concrete slabbed patio and would like to change the colour.the patio is about 15 yrs old and dirty. Can you advise cleaning product and stain type?Thank you

Your quickest and easiest way to refurb tired paving would be to use the Endura Solid Stain, this will give you a solid uniform colour.

As for cleaning, you don’t need any special cleaning product a good power washing will suffice.

Endura Solid Stain (ESS)

Hope this helps

Smart Colour Stain

Hello, recently I have had a water leak which required part of my patterned concrete drive to be dug up, when they repaired the section of concrete the company did not stain it and it now looks terrible. Can I use your stain to make it look like the rest of my driveway? Thank you Kevin

Yes the stains will allow you to colour the concrete to some thing like the same colour (it might not be possible to get an exact match but you should be able to get something very close).

If you could send me a few pictures of the drive I can advise you on which colours would be best suited.

Endura Solid stain for colouring a Concrete Driveway

This question was asked by
Raymond Hannon

Hi there was wondering if you could offer some advice please. We have a concrete drive way that is of a grey colour, but my father patched holes up in places on the drive with replacement concrete a couple of years ago, some being quite large and he didn`t get the colour right. The holes that have been patched are of a more white colour and the drive looks like a patchwork quilt. Could you advise if your endura solid stain would cover the drive a uniform colour?

Yes the Endura Solid will do this, it is designed to give large areas of concrete a uniform colour.

Please check out the videos section to see what is required for the prep work to give the best longest lasting finish.

Water based sealer differences

This question was asked by
Peter Roberts

Drew has suggested an alternative water based sealant by Adseal. What is the differenence to Invisiseal?

The simplest way to describe, the Invisiseal is just a stain guard, it only stops liquids from soaking in thats it, whereas the water based sealer as well as stopping liquids from soaking in applies a coating to the surface so offers protection against wear and so extends the life of the paving.

Stone and Slate Protector

Patio is light tone grey granite which changes quite dramatically wet to a dark grey. I’d like to protect the patio and achieve a darker grey Matt effect. Can you recommend which product will be best for both protection and colour.

The product below will be suitable for what you want
