We are very pleased with the results of our re-sealing project. The sealer restored the paver colors and gave them a fresh clean look. The employees at Black Diamond were very helpful in helping choose the right product, answering our questions on preparation, and providing application tips. We would definitely recommend Black Diamond Coatings!
Thank you Dan for the fantastic review!! We take pride in our customer service and we are so happy we could help you choose a look that you love!
I was more than a little wary about using this product on our driveway after previously sealing our pavers with a solvent based sealer. I power washed the pavers, then did a test sample. While the manufacturer's warnings state that you can't use this product on pavers that had previously been sealed with a solvent based sealer - I went ahead and it turned out great! Recommendation: Before you seal your pavers with any product, clean them completely and do a test by pouring a capful of water on a test paver. If the water bubbles and sits on top like you just waxed your car - the sealer can't penetrate the paver and may not be able to properly adhere. My two test pavers (one on the driveway and the second on a walkway) both passed the water test. I then sealed the two pavers (both areas that are as inconspicuous as you can get in front of your home), let them dry and put them to the test. I walked on the driveway paver after 24 hours. I drove over the one in the driveway after 2 days and didn't see any "lifting" of the sealer. Next, I swept paver sand into all the paver joints and using a pump garden sprayer, sprayed the entire walkway with NG+. My wife, aka helper, came behind me with a foam roller to smooth out the coverage. I allowed it to dry for two days, walked on it and then went forward with the driveway. I gave the driveway an additional day (3 total) to fully cure prior to driving on same. Both look great & there were no adhesion issues! Yay!! A few days later we put a second coat on the walkway (not the driveway). A week later, Tropical Storm Eta came roaring through and deposited 12"+ of rain. In areas on the walkway where I applied the second coat of NG+ sealer, the pavers had a slight "milky" appearance while they were still wet from the rain. However, after a half hour of sun they were back to looking great and I'm a happy camper! After using a solvent based product, it's a real pleasure to be able to use a garden sprayer and not worry about the clean up! Will definitely use this product again when it becomes necessary.

Thank you Colin for that fantastic and detailed review and for the pictures! The photos look absolutely wonderful!!
great product easy app
Thank you Leonard for the fantastic review!!
My wife and purchased a 5 gallon jug of NG+ dominator sealer. Product is as described, there is the slightest hint of a sheen, wich for me was exactly what I wanted, it high lights the concrete and pavers very nicely. We went ahead and applied it to our rock steps also, again it compliments them nicely. When the water hits it, it runs off like a waxed car. Going to do our side walk, drive way, Front entry area and some brick work on the front of our house next !
Thank you Andrew for that fantastic review!! We are so happy our product gave you the results you desired.
Excellent product, excellent instructions and fantastic service
Thank you Paul for that fantastic review!!!
I rarely write reviews about products but in this case it is worth it. I was a bit skeptical but hopeful that this paver sealer would lock in my paver joint sand (also Dominator). We get torrential thunderstorms in the summer that always seem to wash out the paver sand. I applied the sealer this past week and what a difference it has made! The paver joint sand is noticeably harder, feels impregnable, and has already shown itself to be able to stand up to the rain. I think this is a great solution to anyone who is having issues with joint sand washout. It was easy to apply, the prep work being the most tedious. It is a bit tacky at first but after it dries out is completely fine. Definitely use two coats.
Thank you Michael for that fantastic review!! We are so happy our products worked so well for your project!!
So far so good as it was easy to apply. Hopefully it holds up well. I purchased more to do the fire pit area and next the driveway. I also bought the stone sealer. Again though it is a lot of work doing it yourself but if it holds up it would have been well worth it. What really makes it a five star has been the customer service!
Thank you Scott for the fantastic review!!
