Brick Paver Sealing and Cleaning
Brick Pavers in Tampa Bay & Central Florida are incredibly vulnerable to the harsh Florida sun. If your pavers are beginning to look worn, faded sun-bleached, and dull, then a professional paver cleaning and paver sealing job will renew the color of the surface naturally and provide a protective barrier from the sun and its damaging effects, as well as help, protect from stains, dirt, mildew and weed growth.
Why Should Pavers be Sealed?
Since brick pavers today are mostly made of concrete, which is a porous material, they are extremely susceptible to various types of staining and marking. Oil, grease, and rust are not only the most common culprits but are often very difficult to remove from unsealed pavers because they are so easily absorbed. Unsealed pavers retain water for longer periods of time, which, in turn, creates an ideal situation for staining from oil, leaves, spills, and more. Even worse, unsealed pavers are a prime starting point for mold and mildew to grow. Below is a quick summary of why you should seal your pavers:
- Protects against the intense Florida sun and other natural elements
- Protects brick pavers from oil, rust, irrigation, and other stains
- Inhibits weed growth, insect intrusion, algae, and mildew
- Enhances the look of the pavers, adds curb appeal and value to your home
- Beautifies your home
- Provides structural integrity by locking the paver jointing sand in place
Why We Use a Joint Stabilizer Sealer
Sealing your pavers with a joint stabilizing sealer will help combat the weeds, as the seeds can’t easily penetrate through the hardened sealed sand, thus making it difficult to grow and end up blowing away to the next unsuspecting unsealed surface.
Weeds in pavers almost always start from seeds being blown and deposited into the sand joint from neighboring weeds. If you or your neighbors have a lot of weeds in the yard or landscape beds, then it’s almost a guarantee that you will have weeds in your pavers.
When installing a joint stabilizer sealer, we implement a ‘wet look’ at no extra cost. With this enhancement, your pavers have that just-rained, wet look that darkens the surface tone and keeps your pavers from appearing dull or sun-faded.
