evening all.
i laid around 90 sqm of polished grey sandstone on my own property at the end of the summer which im now looking to seal.
wehn working for clients i never carry out any sealing as some time its can be more hassle than its worth with potential call backs.

as this is my own i would like to seal it as i have no doubt it will get food and drink stains. (we are also having a 50 person christmas party in 2 weeks)

due to the time of year it seems A water based/ breathable impregnator would be the best option due to high moisture levels but looking through the sealer tests and reviews there doesn't seem to be anything at all that offers any real stain protection. is this the reality or is there something out there that ive not found yet?

Totally wrong time of the year to even think about sealing exterior paving. April thru to late September and even then the weather can go against you. Just give the paving a clean after the party, don't risk it.

I'm with Roger - even with a water-based product, it's the worst possible time to apply a sealant. There's a real risk you will ruin your paving rather than rescue it!
