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.

  • We hired Amazing Paver Restoration to strip off old sealer, re-sand, and re-seal a large paver patio. We could not be happier with the results. The workers were very professionally and did a fantastic job. We won't think twice about who to use in the future when the job needs to be completed again.

  • Amazing Pavers truly lived up to their name! Josue and Maria were very professional to work with. We contracted them to rebuild our paver patio and stairs. The crew, Elias, Daniel, Uziel, and Jose showed up on time, communicated progress, and had an amazing attention to detail. This was our first time doing business with Amazing Pavers and would highly recommend them to anyone thinking about having their patio redone.

    I sealed my pavers myself and did a horrible job. Amazing Paver stripped the old sealer and made my patio look brand new! The men who did the work were very professional and left the area around my patio spotless when they were finished. From start to finish I would highly recommend this company.

  • 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!

    The folks at Amazing Paver are just that- amazing! I've had a fair amount of experience with contractors, and I've not encountered a harder working crew. They did a full paver reset on our patio, replaced our crumbling back steps, and reused some of the old step pavers to tie it all together. Excellent workmanship, fantastic attention to detail, and a beautiful result. We couldn't be happier!

  • Josh, the owner was very response, on time and professional. His crew were punctual, worked 11-12 hour days to get the job done ! The were respectful and made sure the site was clean and safe each day . Josh did a final walk through of the job with me to be sure everything was done correctly. They were a bit more expensive than other quotes but their service and work quality was exceptional! Thanks.

    You learn a lot about a service provider when things sometimes go wrong. We had our patio reset after years of disrepair. Amazing Paver came out did the work quickly and at a fair price. Several weeks later we noticed that there was standing water on the patio. We texted Josue the photos and in less than 5 minutes we had a text back assuring us that we would be taken care of. One week later a crew came out and re-pitched the patio in the trouble spot. The crew on multiple occasions explained exactly what needed to be done, and said to call if there is any other issues. We really appreciate you standing behind your work, and not having to chase someone down.

  • Elias and his team at Amazing Paver Restoration did an 'Amazing' job restoring my paver patio and adding a new firepit. They also re-did my front retention wall that had sunk and shifted over the years. Elias and his team are very meticulous and make sure everything is perfect, they are always on time and did a great cleanup after the job was completed. Amazing if very competitive on pricing and one of the best paver repair and install companies I have worked with.

    Our experience from the first phone call to job completion was top notch. So nice, in this day and age, to find a contractor that not only responds but does so in a timely manner! Quality of the work was excellent and they kept us involved at each step of the process by asking questions to ensure our satisfaction. We highly recommend!

  • I had very good experience with amazing pavers starting with Josh, explaining what needed to be done in repairing my front steps and driveway, when he gave me an estimate. They called a few days ahead telling me what day they would be present, depending on weather. Obed and his crew were very polite and kept me informed on the project. When they were finished they showed me everything and made sure I was satisfied.

  • We had Amazing Paver Restoration do a full reset of our 300 square foot paver patio (originally installed in 2003). The result is absolutely amazing and went far beyond our expectations - the patio looks brand new. The attention to detail by the crew was outstanding as well. We are so happy with how things went, we will be looking to have Amazing Pavers install a new walkway from our driveway to our fully restored patio in the backyard.

    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!

  • We had Amazing Paver Restoration restore our patio pavers and walkways as well as seal our concrete driveways. We've lived in the house for over 12 yrs and this work had never been done (including by previous owners): lots of weeds growing in between the pavers, sunken areas, loose pavers and overall dirty. Elias and his team did a fantastic job with paver repairs, power washing and then sealing. They even accommodated our last minute request to remove a "stomp" from an old built-in grill and restore the area with new pavers. The whole process from the quoting experience to the finished job was very painless. Josh did a great job breaking the quote in very detailed list items with individual quote amounts so we could choose the parts we wanted done. He also recommended that we rebuild the semi-circle step by the back door to make sure it does not fail again (the original build had counter leaver edges which made the pavers prone to falling off at the edges). We're glad we did! The new step looks amazing. The completed job makes the patio areas look almost like new (with the exception that the pavers had lost some color over the yrs). They also were careful with our property and very professional and very responsive. We're are very happy with the end result and can't wait to spend time outside this spring/summer!

    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!

  • 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.

    Josh gave us a very fair quote. His crew worked on our paver patio, front walk, and driveway. It was a big job to restore them given the shifted pavers and years of accumulated dirt. The three guys who worked here could not have been more careful, provide attention to detail, and work to satisfy us. I would not hesitate to use them again!

  • If you want your existing pavers restored or are considering a new paver install…look no further as Amazing Paver Restoration is the company you want to do business with. The entire team is very professional and are a pleasure to work with. My project consisted of a full restoration of existing pavers (500+ sqft), a new install (200+ sqft) and installation of multiple French drains to address downspout drainage issues. The process started with Josue and Maria regarding the quote, samples and installation timing. They were both top notch and extremely professional to work with. Then the work crew (Elias, Daniel & Uziel) came in and worked their magic with meticulous attention to every detail. The project started with 2 days of 100+ degree heat and ended with temps in the 70’s. Not one time did this crew miss a beat working 10-11hrs to get the job done ahead of schedule. Thank you to the entire team for a job well done. I highly recommend contacting Amazing Paver Restoration Inc for your next paver project.
