    i have just spent a huge amount of money having my driveway paved with heavy 2 x 2 x 2 grey concrete paving slabs, not the type you see in the street, and very nice it looks too.
    The problem is, this is brand new and already it is has really bad car tyre marks running over it. It has had to be cleaned after just a couple of months, but the marks are appearing again.
    Does anyone know of a really good sealer that will help. I paid £5,000 so having to give this a coat of the best stuff will be worth it.
    You're help would be really appreciated.

    firstly what are the slabs? Textured slabs such as marshalls saxon's will be very prone to marking and really as such are not a good choice for a driveway. Who chose the slabs?

    The flags are smooth grey with tapered edges. I have seen this stuff "Blackjack Paving Sealer", it's £90 for 25 litres, I don't mind paying this as long as it works, it's supposed to be resistant to tyre marks.
    Has anyone used this?

    That is very cheap for a sealer, I would be dubious of the quality. You should be expecting to pay 50 quid ish for 5 litres. resiblock are pretty tried and tested.

    I though at 90 quid it would be a good quality what is resiblock? Have you used it? Will this stop the tyre marks?
    Thanks for your replies.

    90 quid for 25 litres is pretty much at the bottom end of the market. Even the god awful thompsons sealers are dearer than that.

    I havent personally used resiblock but they are one of the big names and well thought of by the head hauncho of paving expert.
