Brick Paver Driveway Sealing


I have an 800sq' driveway. Generally, how many 5gal. buckets will it take to do my driveway? It is a new driveway and pavers are in good shape.

What would be the best sealer to buy?

Thanks.

Brick Paver Driveway Sealing


the apron-store variety's fairly porous,,, the yield'll be printed on the buckets but figure 150sf/gal 1st coat & 175/200sf 2nd,,, easiest technique's applying w/pump can sprayer - we like solo brand but its our work.

Be careful using a pump sprayer. Sprayer's can leave a fanning affect. It's best to roll it on using a silt foam roller. As for the sealer, it all depends on the finish you want. Do you want a High Gloss, Matte, or an Invisible finish?
