Pros: as good as more expensive drive paints.
" Easy to use, delivered on time and good result on the drive. Would recommend. As long as the Tarmac is well brushed it is easy to apply "

Pros: easy to apply, will last over 2 heavy seasons, deters lichen and moss
Cons: there aren't any
" I cannot speak too highly of this product. It is simplicity itself to put down, just get a cheap roller and paint tray, and don't forget an extension pole. I tend towards putting down two layers, so that any areas I missed first time will be covered by my second sweep. I have a joint driveway, and live next door to a rented house, so using drive seal is not only protecting my driveway, I also makes a great divider on the next door untreated side, preventing many arguments. In my mind this is the best product on the market - there are more expensive versions that are not half as good - I know , I have used them. Don't use the rest, choose the best! "

Pros: easy to use., does look new when finished, dries within an hour or two if done in good weathe
" I had reviewed a few various products to do my drive and decided to give this a go mainly due to the price.
My drive is 42 square metres, part smooth, part very rough and faded to differnet colours, grey and redish mainly
I wasn't expecting a great finish but.... it really did do a great job. The whole lot came up the same colour, a new looking black!!
I know it sounds a bit "cliche" but it honestly does look new and have genuinely had several comments on what an amazing difference it makes.
Top tips...... Part of mine i did with a 12" roller and tray but this roller was not sufficient for the more uneven gravelly parts. However an easy solution was that i grabbed a old yard soft bristled broom and used that. Spread well to make sure you don't get any small pools and use an emulsion brush to do the edges.
Could not be happier with the finish and only used 3 tins! "

" Just a few hours work and it looks like we have a new drive! So easy yet so rewarding! Quick and easy to use. I wish I had a £ for every time someone says 'have you had a new drive laid?' It really does give professional results! "

" I bought this to repaint my drive to match some new sections that were put in following an extension.
It does what you expect it to. Nothing fabulous, dries fairly quickly, goes on well, but does mark easily when walked/driven on and requires a good hosing down to remove the marks.
That said, I would buy it again. "
