I cleaned this brick today and the client was asking what seal it with?

I would use something of this nature, no slip hazard, no gloss, just real protection.

Do you upsell it or just do it on request?

I casually offer it.

It seals the brick below the surface. It does not form a film and it does not make the brick slippery. What it does do is help the brick shed water so that it dries much quicker after a rain and so there is not as much moisture available to feed the algae and mildew growth. The brick not only stays cleaner longer, it will last longer due to less moisture penetration.

It is expensive and I understand that it doesn’t always fit the budget. Often times, our customers decide to have it applied the next time that we clean their bricks after they realize how good their brick look under all of that growth.

I like to add it to any bid where I feel the customer could really benefit from the sealer (areas that get very greasy, old spalling concrete, etc.). I add a seperate line item and price. Sometimes I dont even mention it till I give them the bid and just explain that I feel it could be of benefit to them and why. The Hydrozo that I use is expensive too, about $200/5gal and that gives you 1000-1500 sqft. Easy to work with, solvent based, can be applied in cold weather and to moist surfaces no problem, I just use a Chapin sprayer to apply.

Thanks guys!

So if you can apply to a wet surface would you clean and seal in the same day or let it completely dry out and go back another day to seal?

I did some research on it and it seems like great stuff apparently they did a product name change but maybe this is just for Canadian distribution but it is MASTERPROTECT H 440VT formerly known as Hydrozo Clear 40 VOC
I’m going to look I to buying some and trying it out shortly.

So with sealing the surface I am assuming we could t post treat the surface with a house wash like usual after it’s cleaned if we are going to seal a few days later! Thoughts?
