Shellock Paver Sealing

Shellock (also called Shell Lock and Shell loc) brick pavers are a beautiful and elegant alternative to the same old brick paver look. Shellock consists of actual shells gathered from mother earth. Each piece is made to precision with the highest technological machinery available. As a result, you can expect a slight variation in shade color and shell which adds to the natural appearance of each piece. Shellock transforms any pool deck into a natural-looking paradise while reducing the surface temperature.

Here in Florida, we spend much of our time outdoors, entertaining and socializing around the pool. We spend time hosting barbecues and pool parties or just enjoying our families. That’s why your pool deck and patio areas must reflect your unique sense of style while having the ability to hold up against high foot traffic, water, and extreme Florida temperatures. Brick pavers are a perfect choice for your outdoor living areas, and Shell Lock pavers are a unique, beautiful, and elegant option when you are looking to remodel your pool deck. Shell lock pavers are made with real seashells harvested from coastal areas. This, combined with the beautiful earth-tone colors of the paver, creates a backyard paradise comparable to that of the seashore, decreasing the surface temperatures.

Sealing Shellock pavers is integral to the durability and maintaining the beauty of the shellock. Using a penetrating shellock paver sealer, like Ure-Seal or Trident, will increase the tensile strength of the shellock pavers by up to 32% while filling all the capillaries and pores throughout the concrete that “locks” the seashells together (hence the name shellock)! Once those capillaries and pores are filled, oils, liquids, and rust will not be able to easily absorb into the shellock tiles; instead, they bead up and can be more easily rinsed off with a garden hose! So don’t worry about the tipped-over wine glass on your shellock pool deck when it’s sealed, as the staining liquid won’t be able to absorb into the porous shellock paver tiles! However, if left unsealed, shellock will be Extremely vulnerable to absorbing stains, as nothing is protecting those pores, allowing for them to soak any liquids, oils, oxidation, rust from metals, or spilled glass of chardonnay!

In addition to protecting the actual substrate, having your shellock sealed with Ureseal will stabilize the joint sand between the tiles. If left unsealed, the joint sand that was washed or swept between the joints, that keeps them from wiggling or moving, and will wash out from rainwater, pool water, or roof run-off, and inevitably, your shellock pool deck or shellock driveway will have so much sand loss, the shellock tiles will begin to shift, wiggle, wobble or in most cases, the sand base the shellock lies on, will begin to wash out from below (referred to as “Subsurface Erosion” or Degradation) and make the shell lock tiles to crack, sink or rise in some areas, creating an un-level and unsafe surface.

Our Penetrating Sealer with Stain Guard is highly recommended for the Natural look & feel of Shellock and Travertine for a slip-free finish.

In addition to the maintenance benefits of having your shellock paver tiles sealed, you can also get a pleasant aesthetic look if you go with the wet look, semigloss, or natural. Customers often have a common misconception that if the brick pavers, travertine, or shellock pavers being sealed are shiny, they will be slippery once wet. In some cases, this can be true. However, we will apply a non-slip polymer additive on our last coat of paver sealant to ensure that a lightly textured surface is left behind, which will increase the coefficient of friction of the surface. We have two levels of anti-slip depending on the customer’s needs. With Shell Lock pavers, it is important not to over-apply the sealer. If too much sealer is applied, they can become slippery without the presence of water.
