Hi, I laid 30m2 is saga black sandstone at the end of August 2019 and I got a call from my customer today so I went to look and it was completely green with algae. It does wipe of easy and I can clean it easy but I was wandering g if anyone could  advise me of the best algae preventing sealant that’s about that I could use to seal paving after I clean it. Any advice would be fantastic, thank you everyone

There's  page after page after page of sealant advice on the main website, starting here plus a whole series of trials for various popular sealants.

However, no sealant will keep algae completely at bay, and you'll still need to clean it every year, whereas a top-notch biocide treatment, such as Wet and Forget, keeps it clean permanently, with just one or two watering-can applications per year. I've been using it on my heavily-shaded driveway for the last 5 years and while the charmless, gormless git next door persists with wasting a couple of hours every 6 months or so power-washing his half of the drive, my half remains completely algae-free, crisp and clean, and the power washer is covered in cobwebs in the back corner of the shed.....

Modern Hinckley Triumph - no oil leaks!

All part of the charm, Dylan!

If I had the time, I'd love to have a 60s or 70s bike again, just to nurse and cherish. I'd have to fit a lecky start - I can't manage kick starts these days, not with my glass spine - but the sheer pleasure of thrundling along a country lane on a Sunday morning on a Beezer, an AJS or even an old Matchless like I used to have when I was 14.....there's just nothing like that! :)
