Seal n Lock Paver Sealer Review

Seal n Lock Paver Sealer

Seal n Lock Paver Sealer

Seal n Lock Super Wet is a high solids, two-part water based pure urethane sealer that penetrates the pavers to provide a longer lasting protective barrier with superior joint stabilization (no need for polymeric sand) resulting in a ‘wet look.’ Super Wet is user friendly and environmentally safe. The high solids content of pure urethane wears evenly and lasts longer than solvent based sealers. Super Wet is available in 2 and 5 gallon kits.

The first all in one day process!

Seal n Lock Paver Sealer Scores (1-10)

Wet Look: 6

- Considering this is the Seal n Lock wet look version, the sealer did a very average job at enhancing or improving the paver stones with a wet look.

Gloss Level: 6

- Same as the wet look, The Seal N Lock did have an average shine after drying. Product goes on milky white but dries to a clear satin shine.

Joint Sand Hardening: 9

- The Seal n Lock did an excellent job with hardening the sand down to the base of the pavers. After 2 years, the sand erosion was minimal.

Fading/Wearing After 2 Years: 2

- After two years the Seal N Lock Wet Look has faded significantly. Very to little if any of the shine or wet look was visible. There was a large amount of mold and mildew growing in the sand as well.

White Haze/Yellowing: 10

- Seal n Lock did not yellow or turn white.

Overall Score Seal n Lock Paver Sealer at 2 Year Period: 6.6

- Seal n Lock did not score very well for us. We definitely did not like the one day application process. We had all kinds of trouble with the “wet sand” application even though we watched their video and talked to the customer service. We could not get the sand even and had air pockets. After many hours we did get the sand even and level but in our opinion we would prefer to let the pavers dry and sweep in the sand. We also noticed the the sealer seemed to feed mold growth in the sand. After checking with some contractors, we have found that this has been a known issue with Seal n Lock.

Does not discolor, great at sand hardening, everything was average or poor.

      Edited for Manufacturer Response.

        Nancy, couple of things:

        1. We do not allow manufacturers to post
        2. We agree with you on the previous commentator. We did not catch the fake name.
        3. To be fair we have edited out both comments.

        We only allow comments that are real and honest from customers who have used the product. If we notice anymore fake comments (good or bad reviews) we will lock this thread.

          How long does it take for a post that a contractor writes to actually appear on this site?

          • Concrete Sealer Help says:

            Mary, asking your customers to post endorsements is trying to manipulate this page. I said it had to be \”real\” comments. I do not consider these to be \”real\” as you are influencing them to post. We had no comments on this review for months then all of a sudden we get numerous within a few days. Very fishy…

            Please refrain from this and posting future comments.

  1. My company "Brick Paving Systems,Inc." has been installing pavers in the Tampa Bay area for 35 years and we have used many products to seal them over the years.We have used solvent based as well as water based sealers and I would rate Seal and Lock Wet Look as one of the best. The product needs to be applied correctly or you will not get the best result.Recently the product was reformulated and more of the pure urethane added and our customers are extremely happy with the sealing jobs. Wet sanding takes practice and dry sanding is used when we do pool decks with screen enclosures.The key to a great job is applying the flood coat to make sure the sealer penetrates the joints,then apply a fine coat for consistency..The end result is a nice color enhancement,not a heavy glossy look that makes the pavers look unnatural. You also need to use the right equipment to apply the product, a pump up sprayer will not give the same result as an airless or Seal and Lock's sealer application unit.This is a great product and I highly recommend its use and we find the service department and customer service at Seal and Lock to be very professional and an asset to the concrete paving industry.

    We have come to the conclusion that due to the fact that we were not part of any of the testing, the allowance of a fake testimony by a fake and offensive name, the disrespect and assumptions made on your part via your last post without discussing with us, and the negative comment ending your post, we respectfully withdraw our company from this website. The sad part of this website, is that it is simply a marketing tool…each time someone clicks on a place to order, the company that comes up gets to share some monetary profit with you. It's an old marketing tool and alot of people don't know that….but when the tone becomes negative and offensive, then we want no part of it.
    The contractors that did decide to write in to this page, sent us a copy. We find that these are very professional and respected individuals in the industry who wrote real and honest reviews. And we receive great reports from their customers. Collectively, a decision was made by all today and after receiving legal counsel, we are requesting that you remove our company and all comments from this site. If you do not, we will report you to the Federal Trade Commission and seek further legal avenues.

      Mary, we as in anyone have a right to write reviews of products we have used as consumers, just look at Amazon. We tried your product and had some issues that are valid. We would have allowed your contractors reviews if they would have came over time but it was obvious you asked them to write reviews and that is wrong in our opinion. As for your other assumptions, you are wrong.

    Seal N Lock turned my gray pavers to charcoal black and brown. It absolutely destroyed a $70,000 project. Does anyone know how to get this stuff off? Never again…

  4. Scott Amendolaro says:

    I used Seal N lock 3 years ago to seal the driveways and patios of my 2 homes
    My main driveways for both homes amounted to over 6000sf. The deep enhancement and shine lasts less then a year but the Joint sealing is supurb which is the main reason for me sealing them. 95% of my joint sand stayed intact . I am now starting to see weed and insect intrusion in random areas. I have also noticed that most of the joints have now turned (or begun to turn) black with mold.

  5. Scott Amendolaro says:

    My back patios I have had some mixed results

    On one Patio I have 2,500 sf of artistic paves . Artistic pavers are extremely dense have practically no absorption. It does not take much to coat them and it can result in a slippery condition. Because of the low absorption a blower is required to stop pooling .. Long term I have had my artistic pavers turn white after the first year in areas where people enter and leave the pool areas . It is definitely the sealer since I can pull it off with my fingers after pressure washing. I suspect that the salt water from the pool is getting under the sealer since it does not absorb well into artistic pavers then drying and turning them white. I do plan on resealing the back with sealnlock again but I would caution anyone using it on artistic pavers around salt water pools that you may want to leave your pavers unsealed. But in the areas not exposed to salt water the shine and enhancement lasted for over 2 years.

    On my other patio which was much smaller I had an overlay of 2" pavers (over Chattahoochee) . These had been sealed in the past with solvent and I had a lot of mold growth in the joints because the pavers did not have great drainage .( I do not recommend using overlays if you can avoid it) I aslo do not recommend Super wet for overlays if you already have mold issues . I have had mold growth both in the joints and on the pavers themselves.

    I am going to give the Natural Luster a try next time ( which I knew would resist mold) I used superwet because i wanted the enhancement.

    I am about to reseal them both again and My sister just got pavers as well so I will be using sealnlock again.

      Update:

      Decided I would try the DEFY water based product. Received a sample and ran it on several pavers and it looks good .
      Looking at the Scores here it will not fade as quickly as the Seal_n_lock and I don't need to mix it so thats a + Only time will tell now, I plan on doing several homes with the Defy and compare it to the Seal_n_lock
