What is Block Pave Sealer Used For?

Driveways and patios are something you use every day. It’s extremely important that we take care of them as effectively as possible. Failing to do so can lead to all kinds of damage, including potholes and discolouration. These issues can often be extremely costly to resolve, so it’s better to cut them off before they develop!

Paintmaster’s oil-based block pave sealer is a great way of repelling unwanted elements, including water, dirt, oil and fuel spillages. The hard-wearing nature of these sealants can prevent your surface from sustaining damage or becoming discoloured after constant exposure to the sun.

Here at Paintmaster, we recommend that you mix the block pave sealer with builder’s sand to create a surface with better grip. This makes your driveway or patio easier to walk on and drive on, even in inclement weather.

Wood Treatments

By taking care of your DIY projects and garden treasures with wood treatments, you will be doing them a favour. These wood treatments can improve your furniture or wooden surface’s sustainability, allowing you to enjoy them for years to come.


Emulsion paints are perfect if you are looking for that shiny finish to give your interior walls a sparkling glow and form that unique look.

Another great benefit of this type of paint is that it’s straight forward to apply and dries within a short period of time.
