This question was asked by
i HAVE JUST HAS HAD 100SQM OF RAJ BLEND SANDSTONE LAYED IN THE GARDEN. THE JOB IS COMPLETE AND NOW AM LOOKING TO GET THE PAVING SEALED.
WHEN SHOULD I APPLY THE SEALANT AFTER A NEW LAY
WHAT SEALANT COULD BE RECOMMENDED FOR A NATURAL MATT FINISH AND ONE FOR A WET LOOK.
I HAVE SEEN ON THE PAVING EXPERT SITE THAT Heavy Duty Sealer IS A GOOD OPTION BUT I WANT TO BE SURE.
I have put links below to 3 suitable sealers, The water based one is a matt finish without altering the colour, the Stone and slate will give a matt/satin finish and enhance the colours and the Heavy duty is the same as the Stone and Slate but will give a satin/gloss finish.
You are best to leave it for 3-4 weeks after finishing to allow the mortar to completely dry before applying a sealer.
