Paver Sealing, should I do it?

Do I seal or not seal my brick pavers? This is the most asked question that we get. In short, our answer will always be a profound yes! It all comes down to this, would you like to protect your investment and get the most out of it? Most likely your answer is a yes!

If you have noticed that your brick pavers have lost most of the lovely colors they once had when they were initially installed and now, they look faded and raw, then they are due for a sealing.

When brick pavers are not sealed, they are simply exposed to the harsh elements and to harmful UV rays. Yes, you read that correctly, unsealed, brick pavers will get damaged by every day UV rays. These rays will eat up their colors and in turn make them look dull, faded and raw. This will certainly deteriorate and decrease the life expectancy of your brick pavers costing you more dollars down the road.

Paver Sealing advantages:

  • Retain their color longer
  • UV Resistant
  • Inhibits weeds or grass in joints
  • Reduces moss growth
  • Deters ants and other insects
  • Helps repel oil, grease, grime and stains
  • Easier routine cleaning
  • Enhances color, texture and brightness
  • Resists the effects of harsh weather
  • Provides protection from salt damage
  • Reduces surface deterioration and wear
  • Reduces paver loosening and cracks
  • Assures long lasting beauty and value

As you can see, there are plenty of benefits in sealing your brick pavers. Visit our Before and After gallery to see

So, which sealer to use?

There are plenty of options out there for you to choose from. There are ones that leave a certain glossy look which enhances the colors more and others will leave the natural color of your brick pavers intact but will still provide that protection against the wear and other elements. From natural to semi-gloss and high gloss sheen depending on your taste the options vary.

Our most recommended and preferred by our clients is the “wet look sealer”.  This one is a favorite since it enhances the natural colors of the pavers to make them appear more vibrant and pronounced.

It is important to note that this should not be considered a DIY project, but if you so choose to do this as one, we recommend informing yourself with all the necessary information and proper steps to follow along with the right products that best suit your brick pavers or stones. This is our best recommendation in order to avoid costly mistakes.

Too often we encounter with frustrated clients that either their DIY project went wrong, or they hired the wrong person for the job, such as their landscaper or handyman who thought this was an easy task to take on. The results; a mess and now a costly stripping procedure has to be followed in order to correct and achieve the desired results. (Please refer to our Stripping section.)

This is APR’s expertise. We are committed to offer you with the most innovative and newest techniques that will assure you with the best results expected. We guarantee our sealers will never turn white, amber, crack or peel. We use the best quality sealers that best suit your brick pavers, natural stones and concrete installations. Our sealers are not from the big box store, but rather, from makers that specialize in creating the best products to protect your investment.

  • 5 star review  We hired them and I was reluctant at first but it was probably the best investment I’ve mace in a very long time. It is night and day how much better my driveway and patio looks. Not only did they seal it and remove weeds, they leveled it which made such a dramatic improvement!

  • 5 star review  I’ve had some very bad experiences in the past in doing and repairing my paver driveway, so I was a little apprehensive about getting work done. My wife found Amazing Pavers doing work locally and I decided to give them a try to do needed repairs and sand work on my driveway. Josh was and is genuinely a nice guy. Timely, fair priced and stands behind his work are all appropriate when it comes to describing him and his company. Thank you Josh and your guys for doing such a great job!

    4 star review  Amazing Paver Restoration did a fantastic job! I will definitely use them again when the need arises. I also appreciated there responsiveness when I called. You would think it comes with the territory, but it's truly amazing how many businesses do not consider the customer first and take there sweet time calling back or not calling at all.

  • 5 star review  After going through a terrible experience with a patio company I struggled with trusting or hiring any other contractor. Amazing Paver Restoration changed my perspective on contractors. They communicated with me promptly. Gave me a very fair price. Restored my entire patio and it looks like brand new! I love my backyard again. I highly recommend AMAZING PAVER RESTORATION. Worth the wait!

    5 star review  Amazing Paver Restoration is beyond compare both in quality and value! My mother’s back patio was in desperate need of repair. She also had some decorative brick walls that separated her patio from her gardens. These walls were in far better repair than the patio and ,therefore, not on the “to do” list. BUT when Amazing Pavers gave her a quote to do everything, it was a price that was too good to pass up. The patio is nothing short of breathtaking and far better looking than the original patio ever was and 1/2 the price! This company is not like other companies. The same week the contract was signed, they were out working and all the work was completed in a little more than 48 hours. Impressive! Definitely the right choice if you’re looking for perfection at a price you can afford!

  • 5 star review  Service provided: restoration of driveway ribbons and sidewalk. From the initial contact to the completion of the work, I found Amazing Paver to be very professional. I was impressed with Josh when he met me to discuss the scope of the work to be done. He followed that with a professionally prepared Quote detailing everything. Conversations I had with the office were pleasant and informative. On the day of the job, they came prepared to work. Each worker was polite, friendly and patient with me when I asked questions about the job. There was no doubt they knew what they were doing. The end result exceeded my expectations! I would highly recommend this company and give it 10 stars if I could.
