SHOULD I SEAL MY PAVERS in Oviedo, FL.?
Updated: Dec 14, 2021
“Do I need to seal my pavers?” The short answer is Yes.
Paver sealant is an important maintenance tool to keep driveways, patios, walkways, and pool decks looking as beautiful as they day they were installed.
There are many benefits to sealing pavers, but it’s not absolutely necessary. It really depends on your expectations of pavers and how long you would like them to look great. Pavers that aren’t sealed will end up looking “washed out” (faded), lose their color from wear and UV breakdown (FL Weather) and grow excessive weeds in the joints. Our high-quality sealant includes an additive that will harden the joint sand, making it less likely that you will have settling or shifting caused by joint sand loss.
Most paver manufactures will tell you that it’s not required to seal your pavers, however, it is highly suggested.
Is There A Prep Processes Before Applying Paver Sealant?
Even new pavers should be cleaned prior to sealing. Not only will it clean the pavers, but it will open the pores on the surface to allow better penetration of the sealant. Older pavers will also benefit, as Paver Prep will remove any efflorescence, mold & algae growth that has accumulated. Any stains should be removed prior to applying Paver Prep, using the specific stain remover for the type.
Do I Need New Sand?
(Included in price)
Short answer, Yes! External Wash does a deep clean on new and old pavers with an algicide solution and high pressure. This process removes the top layer of sand to clean deep into the joints. Every job gets a new layer of silica sand. Silica sand between pavers has both a functional and an aesthetic role. When properly sealed with a joint stabilizing sealer, the sand keeps your pavers from shifting out of place. Silica sand between pavers creates friction that locks everything together. Sand helps mitigate weed growth, as well as prevent moisture from seeping underneath the pavers.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD PAVER SEALER BE REAPPLIED?
The basic rule of thumb is every 3-5 years. The re-application is highly recommended to ensure longevity in keeping the original color and joint stabilization.Did you know that you can blog right from your published website?
