    First, I am not a hardscape guy but thought the products used to seal pavers and retaining walls might be similar. Couple questions;

    1)Can anyone recommend a good sealer for a new concrete driveway I am having poured tomorrow. Assuming I might not be able to buy exactly what was recommended here, is there a particular ingredient I should look for.

    2) Probably on the directions for the product, but how shortly after the workers finish should I plan on applying it.

    3) Again probably on the directions but will I need to re-apply shortly after the first treatment and thereafter

    4) Finally any advise for curing the concrete. I have read somewhere to try to keep it wet so I cures slowly. I am in the suburbs of Chicago and we are expecting hot humid and rainy weather for the next week to ten days.

    Thanks in advance for the help offered here.
