The Benefit of Sealing Your Pavers
Whether sealing brick pavers or concrete, the essential benefit is protecting your investment. We at Dakota Power Washing use a sealant that protects against staining and makes cleaning pavers easier.
Additionally, sealing enhances the appearance of your pavers, as it brings out the stone’s natural color. You’d be amazed at the difference if you installed pavers years ago.
Similarly, a quality sealant would resist UV rays, ensuring those brilliant colors don’t fade under the Arizona sun. It will help stabilize your pavers, deter insects, weeds, and more. Once applied, the maintenance of your surface gets much more manageable.
Paver sealing before and after
Frequently asked questions
What is paver sealing?
Paver sealing is the application of a sealant to concrete, travertine or brick pavers to protect and enhance their appearance. The sealant forms a barrier against staining, weathering, and insects, while also making the surface easier to clean. Paver sealing is essential in maintaining your outdoor flooring and should be done regularly.
How long should I wait to seal my brand-new pavers?
You should wait at least 60-90 days after installation before applying a sealant. This allows the pavers to settle and for any efflorescence to disappear. If you seal too soon, the sealer may not adhere properly and will need to be replaced sooner.
Should I seal my driveway?
Sealing your driveway paving is a great way to protect it from the elements and extend its lifespan. It also makes it easier to clean and enhances its appearance. For best results, seal your driveway every two years.
Will sealing make my pavers shine more?
Pavers that are sealed often have their original colors darkened. The degree to which this occurs varies depending on the type of paver. Still, the pavers will get a bit of a shine in some cases. Keep in mind that when compared to lighter hues, darker colors usually appear to have a more noticeable sheen. However, the main reason for sealing pavers is to protect them.
For sealing brick pavers, there is a variety of different finishes that can be selected, like natural, enhanced, or wet look.
What is the difference between a paver sealant and a paver sealer?
Paver sealants and paver sealers are both designed to protect and enhance pavers. However, paver sealants form a barrier on the surface of the pavers. In contrast, paver sealers penetrate the pavers and bond with them chemically. Paver sealers are generally more durable and longer-lasting than paver sealants.
How often should I seal my pavers?
Sealing pavers should be done every 2-3 years, depending on the situation. If your pavers are starting to look dull or faded, it may be time for a new coat of sealant. You may also need to seal more often if your pavers are located in an area that gets a lot of traffic or exposure to the elements.
I can see a cloudy white film on the surface of my pavers – why?
The cloudy white film develops on pavers when they absorb sealing material. If you don’t clean the surface or provide enough time between coats, moisture becomes trapped inside the paver. As the moisture tries to escape, it’s blocked by the sealer, which causes a white appearance.
Often, the white cloud is also caused by saturation. Excess sealer on pavers can cause staining and make the surface extremely slippery. This isn’t easy to repair and requires professional paver sealing to fix correctly. To prevent this altogether, it’s best practice to hire a professional from the start.
Will I need to re-sand my pavers?
The short answer is it depends. Re-sanding your pavers is usually only necessary if they’ve become loose or the joints have become eroded. If your pavers are still in good shape, you likely won’t need to re-sand them. However, it’s always best to consult with a professional paver sealing company and get an expert opinion. If you want to work with the best paver cleaner and sealer in Phoenix, give us a call. We can come in for a quick inspection and provide a free quote and a professional consultation.
How long does it take to seal my pavers?
The amount of time it takes to seal pavers varies depending on the size of the area and the type of paver. Sealing pavers is a serious project and demands some preparation:
- We give your pavers a non-chemical wash.
- We pressure-clean them thoroughly to prepare the surface for sealing.
- We spray on a sealer to protect them adequately from the elements.
The number of coats depends on the style of the paver. Similarly, we also take note of the surface and how you use it on a day-to-day basis. Generally, we recommend not driving or parking any vehicles on the sealed surface for 48 hours. However, you can walk on the sealed surface after only a short time.
