Update – SuperSeal M Concrete Water Repellent Review

The SuperSeal M Concrete Water Repellent is one of our top sealers for waterproofing concrete based on performance and price. If you have any questions or have used the SuperSeal M Concrete Water Repellent product, please ask below in our Q&A area. We are here to help!


SuperSeal M SealerSUPER SEAL-M is a water-based Silicone Water Repellent made of a special hybrid of Silane and Siloxane. SUPER SEAL-M provides water repellency to porous construction materials such as bricks, stone, concrete blocks, mortar, and grout. It is not suitable for very low-porosity substrates such as polished stone.

The active ingredients in SUPER SEAL-M Water Repellent Sealer are a mixture of different-size particles-some larger, some smaller to fill different size voids. This ensures good penetration into porous substrates, resulting in good coverage and durable water repellency. The active ingredients in SUPER SEAL-M Water Repellent can chemically react with the substrate, ensuring long-lasting performance.

Concrete Sealer Ingredients: Blend of Silanes and Siloxanes

Concrete Sealer Type: Penetrating Clear Water Repellent

SuperSeal M Concrete Water Repellent Scores (1-10)

Ease of Application: 10

– The SuperSeal M was applied to a new concrete driveway the day after installation. SuperSeal specifically says that the sealer can be applied to new concrete as soon as the bead water is gone from the install. We used 5 gallons for the 1000 sq. feet. It took 30 minutes to apply and did not have any issues.

Water Repellency: 8

– After 3 days we tested the water beading with the garden hose. All of the water beaded up on the driveway with a light mist of water. A heavier saturation and the water still did not penetrate into the concrete.

Cost per foot: 10

– We bought a 5-gallon pail of the SuperSeal M for $170 from our local store in TN. We only needed 5 gallons to cover the entire driveway. That comes to $.15 a sq. foot.

Durability/Spalling After 2 Years: 8

– After 2 years the new concrete driveway showed very little wear and tear. The water still beaded up on the surface and no spalling or chipping of the surface was prevalent.

Warranty: 7

– This product comes with a 5-year warranty.

Overall Score SuperSeal M Concrete Water Repellent: 8.6

– What we liked best about the sealer was the ease of application and the cost per sq. foot. The water repellency was above averages as well. If you are looking for high-quality concrete and masonry sealer that is fairly inexpensive, then the SuperSeal-M would be a great choice.

*Very easy to apply, low cost, durable.

I have a brick house that we have lived in for 20 years. It is over 30 yrs old. Do i need to seal the brick? If so, do i need to clean it first? It doesn’t look bad but i am thinking due to age it needs to be sealed to increase longevity and the integrity of the brick. Is this accurate? Please advise. Thank you.

We DO NOT want any kind of glossy look, but our brand new concrete pavers don’t show their colors much at all unless they happen to be wet—very dull, pale, almost whitish in the bright sun. Will SuperSealer M Concrete Water Repellant leave them just as drab as they are now? Is there any color enhancement at all? They are new.

I own a 63 yr old brick home in NW Michigan. Brick was cracking & spalling due to water infiltration & freeze/thaw action. Mason recommended a sealer which was applied 6.5 years ago (product made by Euclid). Spalling has basically stopped but I am thinking I should reapply. Would applying SuperSeal M over a different sealant be problematic? Also, does SuperSeal M allow the brick to breathe? Thank you.

If snow and ice melt on top of sealed concrete isn’t there more of a chance of the water refreezing on the top since it doesn’t absorb as much? All beading will just turn to ice.

I have a covered concrete patio that frequently gets dirty when dogs play in yard and then track it on to the concrete. Is SS M the best sealer to allow me to more easily wash off dirt & mud? I would want to use the same SS M for my concrete driveway…just wanted to know about the ease of washing mud & dirt and the best sealer to use for that. Thanks in advance!

Thanks for such helpful information. Would the Superseal M work on concrete driveway pavers vs. say the Superseal 25? I do not want any gloss. Again, this is in coastal Florida. Does the Superseal M last longer and need to be recoated less frequently than the Superseal 25?

Hello! I just filled all the joints/cracks in my concrete driveway with Sikaflex Self Leveling polyurethane Sealant, and now I’d like to put a penetrating waterproofing seal coat. On the Sikaflex, it says not to use silicone based sealers with a high solvent content.

What sealer do you recommend I use for the best results? Thank you in advance for your advice!

HI – my front steps (south facing) leading up to the house absorb the rain causing efflorescence on the aggregate concrete side walk leading up to the front entrance steps. The steps are General Shale Cortez clay brick (16″ step / 2 bricks with 7″ risers). Can I use SuperSeal M Concrete Water Repellent to stop rain from penetrating the clay bricks? I live in middle TN, so sometimes heavy rains. Thank you in advance for your advice.

I’ve got a driveway of cement and aggregate that we diamond grinded to look like terrazzo. We like the darkness of it when wet it darkens the cement and brings out the color in the aggregate but we can’t find a sealer to do the same thing on our driveway. What do you recommend?

the images are pre-grinding, after diamond grinding and when wet.

Hi
1) Can I use either Superseal M or Masonry Saver on travertine? Which is best?
2) If so, what would be a good product to use to clean the surface before applying the sealer?
3) I have heard that before applying one of these sealers you should wet the surface lightly and apply the sealer just before the water dries. Is this right?
4) Finally, can I assume that either/both of the products mentioned above protect against staining as well as against water?

I would like to epoxy the concrete steps that lead up to the front door of my house. The steps are outside and we have harsh winters in Chicago. What is the best epoxy to buy for this? Would it be slippery once the epoxy has been painted on since it rains and snows here in Chicago. Can I leave the concrete smooth as it is now or should I get the concrete stamped to avoid slip and falls. Does the epoxy have some texture to it so people will not slip and fall. Is the epoxy clear, I would… Read more »

I’m currently repointing a Colorado brick home from the late 1880’s and the surface of the original brick was so soft and rotten that we resurfaced the entire building prior to repointing.
I plan on using this product to seal the exterior once the tuck pointing is finished.
Is there any reason you would not suggest this product for the purposes of preserving the 130+ year old bricks since the original fired faces have long since deteriorated???

I need a clear topcoat for a concrete carport and driveway exposed to sunlight in Florida… The carport and driveway was recently finished with two coats of H&C Heavy Shield water based. The second coat has decorative flakes. I want to clear coat over the flakes. Seems that all of Sherwin_Williams clear coat products say “Not Recommended for Driveways”! Needs to withstand sun, rain, hot tires. No change in finish. Can be glossy as long as I can not see roller marks. Thanks!

So I can put the 2 part Restore-A-Garage Satin polyurethane topcoat over my water based one part H&C Heavy Shield stain without a problem? It will not react to what I have already? This can be quickly rolled on without bubbles as there is only 30 minute working time? Thanks for your help.

I have a concrete patio (not stamped but flat) that was previously stained with a water base stain and then with a matte seal that showed no sheen. It’s been two years and I want to protect my stain. This time I’d like clear stain that is more of a sheen to it and will better prevent water absorption and mold. It’s not a high traffic area and I’m not worried about traction. I’m struggling to decide on a product. I plan to use a pump sprayer.
