@Pipie, Message 1, Why would you want to seal an external tiled/flagged area? they should be designed and installed to allow the surface water to run off and drain away from buildings and other installations or soak away through porous joints/barriers, where will the surface water go if/when you manage to create a waterproof basin?

Dillon.



I understand that the area should have been constructed to allow water to run away. However unfortunate for me it was not.

I really just need an update on the best sealer that can be recommended please ?

Sorry Pipie, Iím not aware that such a product exists in the market anywhere, let alone in Cyprus, and due to the materials used and construction methods of external tiled and flagged areas, I would be very sceptical about the claims of any manufacturer of an external sealer that would in fact be fit for purpose.



It sounds as though re-laying some or all of the paved area may be a solution or if the surface water is pooling, install a drain connected to a small soakaway.

A problem with using a sealant is that at some future stage when it erodes, if it ever does work, inevitably it discolours/picks up grit and looks awful. The job of removing the sealant, even with power sanders, can be a nightmare.

may be fine for a while, but then is it resistant to very strong UV from the sun? You will only find out next winter, then there is very little you can do about it, until this time next year

Brian - message 7 - now, be honest, would YOU take DIY advice from a man who varnishes his front door with Douwe Egberts?

Jeannie. I am a top man at DIY. The Wildebeest (bless her) says "do this", "do that", incessantly, and I reply "do it yourself" !

Brian - on an earlier thread, Hattikins mentioned she was looking for a roundtoit for her husband. I have been looking for years for this piece of equipment and, thus far, have been unable to locate one. We are now in desperate need as we have many household jobs that will obviously never get finished without this vital tool (if you get my drift) and wonder whether you (as a man obviously "in the know") could possibly recommend an outlet here in the UK, or perhaps they are more readily available in TRNC?



All recommendations very welcome.



With thanks in anticipation.



Jean

Brian, if you tell Jeannie where you can get a roundtoit then I'll ignore you next time I see you in Fastfood, however if they appear unlocatable I'll buy you a beer...............when I get around to it

Pipie,

I use a German product to seal my travertine terraces and balconies. It is available at Marshall's and is called Ceresit CT10. It comes in a 3kg ( may do larger) plastic container. Read the information on the container carefully.
