Why Seal Your Pavers?
Brick Pavers have become increasingly popular among homeowners in recent years. Areas around the home such as driveways, sidewalks, walkways, porches, patios and around pool decks can be created with brick pavers and can certainly enhance the beauty of your home or property.
It is however, important to note that like concrete, wood and other surfaces, brick pavers will last longer if they are maintained regularly.
When pavers are not cleaned, re-sanded & sealed, they can suffer from effects of erosion, weed growth, algae, mold & mildew, sun fading, discoloration and ant activity. In extreme cases, brick pavers can shift, become loose or settle causing low areas where water can puddle.
With both new and older pavers, a brick paver sealer should be applied to waterproof the surface. Applying a brick paver sealer will solidify the sand joints and help to lock the pavers in place. A brick paver sealant will also reduce weed trying to grow up between the bricks. Because water beads up and will not be able to penetrate, algae, mold & mildew are less likely to occur along with protecting against the elements and erosion. It will also enhance the beauty of your home & property.

Cleaning Brick Pavers
We completely and thoroughly clean the entire paver area removing any dirt, algae, mold & mildew, rust and grease. We also clean in between the old sand joints to remove any weeds.
Re-Sanding Brick Joints
After the pavers are dried from cleaning, we re-sand the joints before sealing. We only use polymeric sand that is designed for paver construction. We then pour the sand on the surface of the pavers and using a broom, we sweep the sand around the entire area filing in the cracks making sure that all of the joints are filled with sand. Then we remove any excess sand that is left on the surface.
Sealing Brick Pavers
Using a high-quality brick paver sealer, we apply the brick paver sealant on using a sprayer, completely coating the surface to ensure the pavers are covered properly. Please note: If pavers are new, then the previous step of re-sanding is bypassed. We inspect the pavers to make sure that they are cleaned and ready for the sealer prior to sealing.
