Outdoor waterproof sealant

j4inoOctober 17, 2013

I have a bridge outside my home. It is mostly made out of wood. But part of it has some slate. It is is good condition. I have noticed a few cracks in the slate and I want to seal it up so that water can't get in between the wood part of the bridge and the slate part of the bridge. I also want to better protect it so it doesn't crack further. Can you recommend any clear type of waterproof sealant? I should also mention that we drive our car on the bridge to access the garage and we walk over it daily...so I also have to be careful that the sealant isn't slippery.

See that no one ever replied to your question. By now, you've probably solved the problem.

Years ago we lived in a house that had a large slate entryway - that was very dirty. After someone's suggestion at a local tile store, we removed the slate and cleaned each tile very thoroughly. We then rubbed motor oil into the slate. This sounds crazy, but it looked beautiful.
