Why Properly Sealing Your Brick Pavers is Essential

brick paver maintenanceInstalling brick pavers for your driveway or walkway is a great aesthetic and cost-effective choice, but if you really want to ensure that the beauty of your pavers stands the test of time they need to be properly sealed. Hiring our paver restoration team to seal your brick pavers will help you when it comes to:

Maintaining Structural Integrity

Even though your brick pavers are much sturdier than other types of paving material, they are still susceptible to erosion from weather conditions and everyday wear and tear. There is also the possibility of weeds growing up through the pavers and compromising the structural integrity of your driveway.

Properly sealing your pavers protects them from the abuse of wind, rain, and freezing temperatures. In addition, paver sealant can slow down the growth of weeds, algae and moss.

Enhancing the Aesthetic of Your Pavers

Brick pavers are made from semi-porous material, making them vulnerable to staining and marking. By undergoing our sealing process, you can prevent the absorption of stains and keep your driveway looking great for years to come.

Properly sealed pavers are also more aesthetically pleasing than unsealed pavers. Sealant prevents the colors from fading and in fact deepens the stones’ natural color. The sealing can also be completed using your desired finish for a polished, elegant look.

Making Brick Paver Maintenance Easier

Applying the proper sealant also makes brick paver maintenance easier over time. For more information about brick paver sealing and maintenance, contact our team today.

The Benefits of Installing a Brick Paver Walkway or Driveway

restoring faded paversWhen it comes to installing a new driveway or walkway, you have a ton of options. The most common material used is poured concrete, but you should consider other options. Interlocking brick pavers have many advantages over concrete, including:

Aesthetic – Pavers come in wide variety of styles, allowing you to create a look that is as simple or elaborate as you’d like. They are also available in many more colors than poured concrete. In the end, installing brick pavers over concrete will give your home much more curb appeal.

Durability

Pavers are excellent for high traffic areas like the driveway or front walkway because they are extremely durable. Concrete has a tendency to crack, which will cost you more money in repairs over time. Pavers not only hold their color better, but they can also shift with the earth, allowing your driveway to remain intact.

Maintenance

The maintenance and installation costs of brick pavers are a fraction of what you would pay for concrete. When your concrete walkways are damaged, you have to re-pour the entire area, whereas individual brick pavers can be lifted out and replaced when they are damaged. They are also much less prone to staining and other types of permanent damage.

Non-Slip

Brick pavers have a much more abrasive surface than poured concrete, making them much safer to walk on when wet. When used around a pool area, they make the space significantly safer.

If you pavers were improperly sealed and they begin to fade, call our paver restoration company. We are experts at restoring faded pavers and sealing them to prevent any future damage. Contact our team today to request an estimate.
