When it comes to protecting your investment in paving stones, sealing pavers is one of the most important steps you can take. Unsealed pavers are more likely to develop joint weeds, discolor, and lose their color due to wear and degradation from UV rays. Sealing pavers is the best way to protect your patio, walkway, driveway, pool deck, and other hard surfaces from erosion, weed growth, mold or mildew accumulation, discoloration, and loosening.

We understand the importance of sealing pavers and the benefits it can bring. In this article, we'll explain why you should seal your pavers and what types of sealants are available.
Why Seal Your Pavers?Paving stones are made from porous materials such as concrete and stone. This means that they will absorb liquids and can become stained if not sealed.
Sealing pavers is the best way to ensure they last longer, prevent stains, and maintain their beauty. Sealing pavers also helps to harden joint sand, making it less likely to settle or move due to the loss of joint sand. Most manufacturers and contractors recommend sealing pavers for this reason. If you have old, dirty, or faded pavers, our proven repair, cleaning and sealing system can restore their original shine.
Sealing pavers is an important maintenance tool for keeping your hard surfaces looking as beautiful as when you first installed them.
Types of SealantsWhen it comes to sealing your pavers, there are two types of products to choose from: solvent-based and water-based sealants. Solvent-based sealants are more durable than water-based sealants but they also have a strong odor and can be hazardous if not used properly. Water-based sealants are easier to apply but they don't last as long as solvent-based sealants. It's important to note that if you don't have the necessary experience, a lot can go wrong when sealing pavers. That's why it's best to hire a professional who has experience with paving stone installation, cleaning and sealing services. Sealing your pavers is the best way to protect your investment and maintain their beauty for years to come.
