Paver sealing

Paver sealing is an important maintenance service to keep paver patios, walkways, driveways and pool decks looking as beautiful as they day they were installed.

Paver sealers are valuable for protecting the surface of the pavers from the weathering caused by UV rays. UV degradation causes many materials to break down from extended exposure to the sun. While the concrete pavers themselves are highly durable, the colored pigments in the pavers can slowly fade over time, due to the UV ray exposure.

Sealers work much like a varnish other sealers provide for wooden surfaces. Sealers can draw out the colors and contrasts found in the concrete pavers and create greater visual interest. Some sealers have a “Wet Look” that produces an appealing patio surface.
