Hi Guys,

It should although I've only used it on pool decks.

Sealing pavers is like trying to seal a sponge, have had paver patios and walkways for 30 years and never sealed but have seen them and it looks artificial!

I saw where someone said this stuff is for vertical surfaces only. So I checked the label, since I already have a gallon of this stuff, and sure enough, right on the front it says vertical only. Crap.

I like the artificial look.

I double checked and sure enough the coating for pool decks is a different line, same brand but different coating.

I used Thompson's water seal on my patio pavers. That was three years ago and the coating is till holding up. But it's due for a new coat at this point in time. As far as looks go, I don't think it makes a difference. When it's dry it looks all the same.
