Types of Sealers
One of the primary aspects of paver restoration is the sealer that is applied to your paver installation to protect and reinforce the structure of the material. Different sealers have different usages, and it is our job to make you aware of all the available options. The two types of sealers we use are film formers and penetrants, and the sealer that you choose will largely depend on the material of the paver and the kind of protection you will need.
Two Types of Sealers: Film Formers and Penetrants
Film formers are a top layer sealer that adheres to the surface of the paver and provides ample protection from water, snow, and any contaminating substances. The finish of the film former creates a glossy and polished appearance, which greatly benefits the visual and structural presentation of the pavers. Film formers will significantly prolong the life-span of your paver installation if applied routinely.
Penetrants are a sealer that will enter the perforated surface of a concrete paver at one to four millimeters deep (penetrants are typically used on exorbitant materials). Penetrants will resist water and prevent stains from occurring. Penetrants will also greatly increase the life-span of your paver installation, and they are very effective in restoring the color and visual appearance of your pavers.
Additional Information on Sealers
Sealers are very resourceful if you are searching for an affordable and simple solution that greatly enhances the structural durability of your paver installation. Sealers can be applied to many different materials, such as limestone, granite, brick, and concrete pavers, and you can apply sealing agents onto driveways, patios, pool decks, walkways, and parking areas. Sealers will make your paver installation brighter, shinier, cleaner, and more durable.
Paver Restoration offers an affordable and efficient solution to repairing and revitalizing your pool deck, backyard patio, or an outdoor walkway. There are many benefits to our restoration services!
The Many Benefits of Paver Restoration
The color of your stone, concrete, and brick pavers will eventually begin to fade away after extensive exposure to sunlight, but our professional restoration services will bring back that vibrant and effervescent presence. Although pavers are typically very durable and resilient, they will lose their color if a sealer is not periodically applied to it. A simple restoration service will have your paver installation looking brand new and visually magnificent. Sealers will preserve the color and shininess of your pavers for many years to come.
One of the main benefits of our restoration services is that your pavers will regain the indestructible quality that they had when you initially installed them. Whether you are replacing the base materials or applying a sealer to the pavers, we can guarantee that your backyard patio or driveway will resist and prevent any potential damage or physical deterioration. The sealer we apply will repel water and any other contaminating substances, such as oil, grease, bacteria, and grime. Also, our restoration efforts will ensure that your paver installation can endure extreme weather conditions.
The base material of paver installation is typically made of sand, and sometimes this material can be washed away sand and it will need to be replaced. What we do is we remove any ineffectual base material and then re-install the pavers and apply a sealer to fortify the joint materials that keep the pavers locked in place. A sealer should certainly be applied to your paver installation if there is a pool nearby to prevent the sand from becoming dislodged and entering the pool. The sealer also prevents and insects or animals from potentially tarnishing the base material.

The Pros and Cons of Paver Restorations
The Pros of Paver Restorations
There are many benefits of paver restoration that you simply cannot afford to pass up. Sealers can greatly enhance the visual beauty of your paver installation and restore the brightness and vibrancy of the colors to their original luster. Sealers also provide your pavers with additional protection from natural phenomena such as rain and sunlight. Oils and grime will not be able to penetrate the concrete, brick, or stone material that comprises your paver installation, and the sealer prevents mold and weed growth from occurring in between the paver pieces.
The Cons of Paver Restorations
Although there are many advantages to hiring our paver restoration services, there also a few drawbacks that we feel you should know about. You will be required to periodically reseal your pavers because the sealer will thin out over time. The frequency with which you will need to apply a sealer depends on the materials of the pavers. Sealers can also be somewhat costly, and this is because inexpensive sealers will quickly breakdown and you will be constantly resealing your pavers. This can create a recurring financial strain. Also, sealers can potentially contaminate nearby vegetation if it is improperly applied to your pavers.
Overall, paver restoration can greatly improve and revitalize any outdoor setting, whether it be a backyard patio, pool deck, or driveway. Sealers provide significant protection against stains and greatly reduce the likelihood of any physical imperfections from developing in your paver installation. Sealers are one of the more popular options when it comes to restoring the rich and brilliant appearance of your paver installation, and many of our clients tell us that they choose our restoration services because then they can completely avoid having to renovate and redevelop their outdoor property.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to replace the sand surrounding my pavers?
Not in every scenario, but there are situations where you will need to replace the sand, and that is because the base material will become compromised and this can harm the structure of your paver installation. However, if you periodically apply a sealer then the sand will remain intact.
Can sealer or sand end up in my pool?
We are very careful through the entire restoration process when working around a pool, and we can assure that very minimal if any sealer or sand will end up in your pool. We use specialized equipment that will prevent excessive amounts of sand from ending up in your pool.
