Top Tips on Painting your Driveway

Everyone wants the front of their house to look good, but sometimes it’s not as simple to do as the interior of your house meaning the exterior can often be neglected. These mistakes may not seem important to some people, but when considering that the front of the house is the first thing that a buyer will see, it’s a small issue to think about. There are some things that you’ll need to know if you want to do the job properly and achieve the maximum effect. Most of them are quite easy and don’t need any professional skills, so there’s no excuse for not doing them! Here’s what you need to do to achieve your freshly painted driveway.

  • Prep The Surface - Before you apply a fresh coat of paint, make sure that the surface is clean, using either a leaf blower, a broom or a brush. Once you’ve removed all of the surface dirt from the driveway, give it a good wash using a pressure washer. If some stains remain, apply a degreaser and follow the manufacturer's instructions. Once the driveway is completely dry, inspect it for cracks before painting it. Ideally you need dry weather and preferably a couple of warm days. Needless to say it would be very unwise to pick a day when rain or snow is expected.
  • Dealing With Cracks - It is quite common for many driveways to not have been repaired for some time, which means there are likely to be some dents, chips or cracks. You need to remove any small pieces from holes, which you might need a hammer for. Once you’ve done this use a wire brush to crack the surface before switching on the leaf blower again.
  • Repairing Cracks - If a crack is small then you can use a concrete repair caulk, fill the hole and smooth the caulk. On the other hand, a bigger hole should be filled with a premixed mortar, once the surface is dry, make sure that it is smooth and level.
  • Finally – Painting Time - Follow the instructions for preparing and applying the selected epoxy paint. We suggest you use a nap roller to distribute the first coat thinly and evenly across small sections of the surface. Make sure the section edges overlap, so that you get a seamless paint coat.

Finding your newly installed patio or refreshing an older one will help to protect it from a range of moisture and weather related damage, helping to prolong its lifespan. While there is a range of patio products out there, both staining and painting will provide you with different appearances, applications, durability, maintenance and cost. Stains tend to be more budget friendly, is easier to apply and will provide a natural finish. Paint comes in a larger variety of types and colours, it lasts longer and is much easier to maintain.

Patio sealers are great for use on a range of patio materials and help to protect the surface, improving its durability and ensuring that the patio is looking its best.

What does a patio sealer do?

Patio sealer aims to make them resistant to stains that can occur from spilled materials, oils and dirt. Patio sealer products can also resist UV rays and can help pavers to retain their natural colour for longer. Sealers come in a range of styles and colours including matte and gloss, gloss paving sealers are popular as they provide the patio with a ‘wet look’, helping the natural colour of the pavement to seem more vibrant. The darker the paver, the more pronounced the colour will be after applying a glossy sealer. Joint stabalising sealers are also available and come with the advantage of preventing weeds from growing in between the patio. As the sealer will soak into the joints, it hardens the sand and provides resistance from rain, wind and insects.

How long does patio sealer take to dry?

This will depend on the type of patio you have, the type of patio sealer that you are using, as well as the area's conditions. Overall we advise waiting for a minimum of 1 to 2 hours for the patio sealer to drive, however it's important to remember that this is the minimum and that ideally you will wait longer. We advise that you don't walk on your patio for a while and consider that the weather can also have an impact on how long it takes to dry. You can monitor the current temperature and use this to estimate the patios drying time, we recommend that you do not apply patio sealer at temperatures below 5 degrees and above 20 degrees as this can affect the finish and overall results.
