Colouring Block Paving ?

Recommended Posts

Can you dye/colour/stain etc etc Block Paving ?

 

Mine is all sort of colours from the last few years of use. . . Is it possible to sort of stain it really dark like you see the printed concrete type black/grey . . then maybe seal it with a protector ?

 

It would save you having to clean the oil and stains off so regular ?

The dye would really need to be added to the concrete mix before the pavers are made . Can't really think of any way you could dye them , are they getting a lot of traffic?

could you chuck a load of black oil on it all and rub it in... then maybe seal it afterwards ?

I don't know if this would work? What about an industrial sander or a concrete finisher to clean the tops of the bricks then seal it?

+1 on this method not familiar with the product but will re freshen your paviors...

 

If you have "gaps" between the blocks get some kiln dried sand and brush it in preferably weeks before applying a finish to allow weathering should look darker with the sealant!

I just want my block paving to look dark brown/black instead of how it looks normally.. so its more like the printed concrete we see a lot of at moment...?

 

could I add some sort of concrete dye to the Swiss Seal stuff to make it also stain at same time ?

if its old paving the dyes right threw if its new ie the last 5 or so years it,ll be on the top 10 to 15 mill of the block

theres no real way of redying the tops the dye needs to go in when the concretes wet. sealants wear off after

about 6 months continuous use as most the time you travel over the same few blocks on a drive
