What type of sealer should I put on my exposed aggregate driveway?

Q:    I am having difficulty determining what type of sealer to put on my existing exposed aggregate driveway. It is the brown pea gravel.


A:     I would recommend a clear, high-solids acrylic sealer (greater than 20% solids). You can also find these materials with a color tint instead of clear - if you have a brown gravel exposed you might want to find a brown-tinted sealer.
You should be able to find such a sealer at a building supply store, or at a contractor supply house.
You will not be able to spray this material – a long napped roller works best for applying to exposed aggregate
