Solid solutions to better hardscapes
Initial and routine maintenance is required to preserve your outdoor hardscape. Sealing is key in upholding the original appearance of your investment and extending it’s lifetime.
One way to moderate the rate of color change is by sealing the surface of your pavers. Paver sealant prevents added dirt from foot traffic and outside elements, restores their initial appearance, enhances color and ensures easier surface cleaning. Sealers are applied over the entire paver surface and allowed to soak and cure in the joints. Pavers should be cleaned prior to applying a sealer to obtain the best performance and appearance.
The perfect finish ~ choose the look you want
Preparation, cleaning, and sealing with proper products will ensure your pavers are safe guarded from dirt, oil, astringents, and all elements of nature for years to come.
Sealant application is weather dependent. Once your paver project is complete, there is a recommended waiting period before applying a sealant. Pavers need this time to settle for their efflorescence (the migration of salt to the surface of a porous material) to dissipate.
There are various types of sealers such as wet look, semi-gloss, and satin. All of these sealers lock in the joints to help prevent weeds or any other growth from occurring between the pavers. This attribute also helps to inhibit staining. The most popular sealant is the wet look for its coloration and shine.
Your hardscape investment can last from generation to generation. Let our paver sealant help maintain this important family treasure. We can set up a paver sealant appointment for you or we can check the surface to see if it needs restoration services.
Frequently asked questions
What does sealing do for pavers?
Sealant is meant to protect pavers from natural elements and other astringents. It creates an invisible barrier on top of the pavers that repels water, oil, and anything else you might accidentally drop on it, providing you wash it clean as soon as you spot it. Sealant also preserves the pavers’ natural beauty for years to come.
Will sealing my pavers make them shine?
Sealing is made to protect the pavers and also to preserve their beauty. Certain sealants are designed to give sheen if desired (the wet look or semi-gloss). Other sealants provide a more matte natural look.
How can you tell if you need to reseal your pavers?
A simple test is one way to help you tell if you need sealing or not. Turn on your water hose and watch water bead up on the surface. If water is not beading, you might need a fresh coat of sealer.
How often do I need to reseal my pavers?
Typically a good sealant product will last between two to three years depending on the care given to the area, the traffic, and the elements.
