I had a new concrete driveway installed this past April. Contractor sealed it with Diamond clear cure and seal - an acrylic. He didn't seal it properly - I already have about 20 pencil eraser sized holes near back of driveway - where it's mostly shade - and some in front - mostly sun.
Also, when it rains, more than half the driveway turns dark gray, the rest stays white - was told this means there is no sealer where it's gray - rain is soaking in.

I'd like to reseal driveway with a deep penetrating siliconate or similar sealer - was told they last longer. But I don't won't to go through the hassle of stripping the acrylic - big driveway (also - apparently the acrylic is only on about half of driveway). I was recommended Vseal 102 winterguard. The Vseal tech guy said I can apply the seal - it will only penetrate where there is no acrylic - where there is acrylic left - it will turn white and I should use a broom to disperse. Then by next year, as mother nature degrades the acrylic - reseal again. So I would be using a phased approach. I don't mind the resealing for a few years until acrylic is gone. I live in Pittsburgh - bad winters.

Question - does this make sense? Also, what is the best quality, longest lasting penetrating sealer - I heard Vseal good, also Aquanil 40 from Chemmasters.

Thanks
