Concrete sealer for garden ornaments

This question was asked by
Jennifer Morton

Hi, I’m trying to find a concrete sealer I can put over concrete ornaments I’ve made and painted with masonry paint, preferably something that gives uv protection and will be non yellowing and dry with anything from Matt to light sheen, not full gloss, for you sell anything that fits the bill? Many thanks and best wishes Jenny

Hi

As you have use a paint on the concrete I would suggest using a water based sealer rather than a solvent based one as the latter could remove the paint.

Best stone sealer for Raj Blend

This question was asked by
Parm

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.

TWO QUESTIONS

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.

Resin bound drive resealing.

This question was asked by
Paul Sherratt

Approx. 3 years ago I had my drive covered. It looked lovely however the sealant used caused a bubbling effect in a few odd spots. The whole area was re- skimmed. It was never sealed. Can you advise if there is a suitable product available which would be unlikely to cause problems.

I have come across this before, you have to be very, very careful applying a solvent based sealer on resin bound stone, you have to apply several mist coats, if you apply it too thickly you get the problem you had.
Because of this I now always recommend using a water based sealer, because there is no solvent there is no risk off it affecting the Stone.

Endura Faux Fusion

I am interested in using this product and was wondering what is the best way to apply this product, I noticed that you sell special brushes to apply stains but I wanted to know if you can apply Endura Faux Fusion with a roller, also does it need to be sealed after application?

The Endura can be applied by brush, roller or sprayer, and yes it does need sealing after, ideally with the water based sealer

Internal wall Sealant

This question was asked by
Vivien Gillies

I have uncovered a stone wall inside my house. The stone needs sealed to stop dust but it is also dull looking. What would be the best product of yours to use? I would prefer a gloss finish to a Matt finish. As it’s an internal wall I understand it needs to be able to breathe or damp becomes an issue. Please can you advise?

For an Internal wall I would recommend using our Water based sealer (link below), it is safe to work with when applying it to a vertical surface and it has very little odour so wont smell the house out.

Concrete waterproofer

This question was asked by
Andrew Morris

We have cast a garage base 2 weeks ago alas labourer forgot admixture so looking for a penetrating concrete sealer as a waterproofer from rising damp, therefore can you recommend any of your sealers to fill the voids ?

Pretty much any of the sealers will help to stop damp, I have put links to 2 different products, the first is our most popular solvent based sealer for concrete surfaces, the second is a water based based option (no harmful chemicals or strong smell).

Either will be fine to use.
