Concrete Paver Sealant Recommendations

I am looking for the best option to seal my concrete brick paver walkway.

It looks like there are a lot of options.

Located in the North East, here.

I am interested in hearing what others have used and if they would use it again.

I am looking for something that will both protect the concrete and prevent fading.

Thanks!

Any recommendations? Are the sealants that don't give a "wet look" effective?

That depends on your definition of "effective" though I don't know if fading is a huge problem for concrete pavers. A wet look or glossy sealer protects best since it can almost totally seal off the blocks. Great if you have to clean off spilled red wine or dropped taco but it can be slippery and I don't like the artificial plastic coated look it creates. There are mat finish sealers similar to wet look that have a dull finish but there is still a visible coating on the blocks. Then there are dry look sealers that you really can't tell the block has been sealed. Rain will initially bead but eventually soaks into the block. Spills can be cleaned if gotten to immediately but if let to set for 5 or 10 minutes can seep into the pores of the stone.
