- Once the paving has been cleaned and resanded we are ready to start the sealing process.
- A walk over is carried out making sure all the joints are suitably filled.
- The paving is then cleared with a leaf blower to make sure there is no sand left on the surface of the paving.
- The first coat of sealer os applied using a roller or a sprayer, making sure to saturate the joints.
- Wait approximately an hour before the next coat is applied, making sure that no vehicles or foot traffic pass over the paving.
- The second coat is applied at a perpendicular angle to the first coat, this coat will be a thinner coat, ensure no lines are left in the finish.
- Leave the paving for at least 2 hours before any foot traffic and 24 hours before any behicles pass over.
