Imagine coming home after a long day of work to your beautiful, well-kept patio. What's that? Is there something on the ground? Oh no, you just stepped in dog poop! Your once pristine and clean patio is now covered with this disgusting mess that will take hours for you to clean up. Wouldn't it be nice if there was an easier way to keep your outdoor space looking its best all year long? There is! You can seal your pavers! Read more below for some helpful tips on how sealing your outdoor pavers can help maintain their appearance while keeping them safe from stains and other unsightly marks.

 

Do you want to protect your valuable investment? Do you get tired of the dirt and stains that seem to never go away? You probably weren't aware, but over time these things will wear down your patio pavers and could lead to bigger problems. Luckily, there is a solution.

Sealing outdoor pavers is one of the best ways to keep them looking new for years on end. Sealing outdoor pavers does not require any special tools or skills - in fact, it's something that anyone can do with just some simple steps. If you're unsure about how this process works or what it can do for your home, read on below. This blog post will give you everything you need to know about sealing


Imagine the look of your driveway or patio; it's smooth and new. But with time, you notice that some parts are bumpier than others because there is a lack of sealant to fill in those cracks between the individual pavers. When this happens, concrete can break apart which causes uneven surfaces where water will collect instead of flowing off evenly like before!


One main benefit to sealing pavers is to prevent surface erosion over time from rain and other elements such as plant life- even grassroots if they happen across an open crack on accident! Over time, larger aggregates become exposed for all the world to see while smaller pieces sink deep into their respective holes making them quite difficult for paver texture recoating later down the road. Pavers are a lot softer and more porous than standard concrete slabs, due to this, it is important to have them resealed every 2-3 years to protect them from stains, and increase their life.


As you might remember from one of our previous blogs: Paver Maintenance 101, Florida Pavers & Pergolas recommends the use of water-based sealers over solvent-based sealers. The water-based sealers penetrate the pavers better and you can apply it as soon as the pavers are dry & set. This means you can get on enjoying your pavers without having to worry about if it is safe to start sealing your new pavers. Keep in mind however that water-based sealers normally require multiple coats to ensure proper protection.
