Concrete & Interlock

How often should I seal my decorative concrete or interlock?

Decorative concrete or interlock should be sealed every 2-4 years for protection against salt, chemicals and the environment, and to restore its original, vibrant finish.

Is your sealer slippery?

Crystaller uses a slip-resistant additive mixed into our sealer. It provides much better traction than not using it at all, especially on stamped and smooth surfaces.

How can I make my driveway less slippery in the winter?

Crystaller recommends spreading sand in high traffic areas for better traction in winter. Try to avoid salt or de-icing products because they may damage the finish or worse yet, damage the structure itself.

How long does it take to dry?

Crystaller sealer is dry to the touch in about 10 minutes. We recommend 4-8 hours for light foot traffic and 12-24 hours for vehicles and heavy objects.

How can I make my freshly sealed surface last longer?

Keep it clean! Use a blower or rinse frequently to remove dirt, leaves or debris. This will prevent small particles to cause abrasion under tires, foot traffic and weather conditions.

Do you clean oil stains?

Yes, Crystaller uses the highest quality cleaners and equipment, but the key is to clean the stain right away, before it penetrates into the surface. The longer the stain sits untreated, the harder it is to remove.

Here are 5 easy steps for cleaning oil stains:

  1. Combine powdered laundry detergent and a bit of water.
  2. Mix it until a paste is formed.
  3. Scrub the mix into the stain and let it stand for a few minutes.
  4. Rinse until all detergent is gone and repeat.
  5. You may need to repeat this process a few times.

When is the best time to seal?

Sealing is best when the climate is dry and the temperature is above 6 degrees Celsius. Our season runs from mid April to November.

Asphalt

Do you spray or roll on asphalt sealer?

Crystaller uses a brush-on application. We find that this method gives the surface an even, consistent coat. It also eliminates “overspray” which can damage garage doors, walkways, sidewalks, windows etc.

How often should I seal my asphalt driveway?

We recommend sealing your asphalt every 1-2 years for protection against salt, chemicals and the environment, and to restore its original, vibrant finish.

Is your asphalt sealer shiny?

No, our asphalt sealer dries to a deep, rich, matte black finish. Shiny asphalt sealer is a product called “cutback”. It usually takes around 2 days to dry and can remain tacky for weeks, tracking sealer onto other surfaces or into your home.

How long does your asphalt sealer take to dry?

Crystaller asphalt sealer dries in about 1 hour. We recommend 4-8 hours for light foot traffic and 12-24 hours for vehicles and heavy objects.

When is the best time to seal?

Asphalt sealing is best when the climate is dry and the temperature is above 10 degrees Celsius. Our season runs from mid April to November.
