How frequently should I think about sealing my paving?

As with a lot of things this is a bit like asking, how long is a piece of string.

There are many factors that determine how frequently the paving will need recoating, the biggest of these is how frequently the paving is driven/walked on.

The absolute shortest period the paving should need recoating is 12 – 18 months, this is with very heavy usage ie. a fully loaded van driving across it two or three times a day, but the chances are that it will last much longer.
