  1. Britannia Block Paving Sealer

Don’t let your block paving get into a state. If you want it to look good you need to take care of it. Be sure to pull up weeds and deter and plant life that may cause problems for your paving. This product rejuvenates old paving, protects against loss of colour through UV light, resists oil and stain penetration and inhibits weed and algae growth.



  1. Hydron Mona-Guard Revive

What about that tarmac? Did you know it’s possible to revamp your tarmac without having to do the whole thing? By using this reviver & sealer you’ll be able to protect your tarmac from damaging outside elements and give it a nice, professional look. We think it’s superior to other tarmac paints so give it a shot!

  1. Rust-Oleum Tarmacoat

Another step to the perfect driveway is to try this product. This paint comes in a variety of colours so you can paint your Tarmac decoratively or add safety markings. If you need to add any kind of line or marking to your surface then you need to give this a go. It’s suitable for asphalt, concrete, pavements, bitumen, parking bays, tennis courts, playgrounds and more.

  1. Coo-Var Tennis Court & Drive Paint

Don’t let the name put you off this paint, it isn’t JUST for tennis courts. It’ll work wonders on your drive if you want to give it a decorative coloured finish. This specially designed paint comes in black, green and red and even contains some anti-slip qualities. But we’ll move onto those shortly!



  1. Ennis-Flint ColourSafe Anti-Slip Surface Coating

Wet summers encourage slippery surfaces, so as a final step in improving your patio or driveway you should consider an anti-slip coating. This will help to give you added grip on those inevitable rainy summer days, giving your surface grip beyond the summer months. Try this cost effective solution to make your walkways safer – it comes in some brilliant, bold colours too!

***October 2018 Update***. This product has since been discontinued. But we can suggest Axalta Highway Anti-Skid Traffic Paint as a great alternative. It is also available in some brilliant, bold colours too!
