Pave Pro offers cleaning, repairing and sealing options to increase the life and enjoyment of your pavers.
Enhancing and sealing pavers has proven to enhance the look of pavers, but also offers a variety of other important benefits including:
We use only the highest quality solvent sealant to enhance the appearance of the stone. Adding a sealant to your pavers makes the color stand out, refreshes and restores the look of your newly-installed or existing pavers. Our sealants come in matte, stain and high gloss.
Pave Pro sealants help to protect the stone from damage to keep your pavers looking great for years to come. Paver sealants also prevent the stones from being stained by grease or oil leaks and spills.
Sealants can actually reverse the aging of the stone, so that they look as good as when they had been first installed- and in many cases- even better. Our paver sealants prevent weed growth and reduce mold, algae and fungus from growing. It also prevents the pavers from fading in harsh sunlight.
Our experienced and certified product installers ensure that the job is done well with a quality finish. Our professional paver sealing and enhancing process usually takes just two days to complete. For most pavers, sealant is recommended every 18 months to 3 years as part of the basic upkeep of pavers.
The Paver Enhancement & Sealing Process
Step One: Before Enhancement
Our paver professionals examine the area for repairs, if any, and address those first. They remove weeds or grass growing in the joints or around the pavers.
Step Two: Color Testing
We test a sample of the stone to see what the effect of the cleaning agent will look like when complete. We apply a small amount of cleaner to the sample stone to ensure there is no negative reaction to the cleaner. We aim to ensure that you get the results you are looking for.
Step Three: Watering Down the Surface
We wash the paved site with water to clean off any debris, and then pressure wash the area to make sure there arenâ€™t any grass or dirt particles remaining on the surface.
Step Four: Cleaning
We choose a cleaner and use a broom, brush or roller to apply. This cleaner must set for a few minutes.
Step Five: Stain Removal
Once the cleaner has set, we start scrubbing the stained area with the appropriate materials. We often do this by hand. If a larger area is stained, we use a pressure hoses to remove the cleaner. Then we rinse and let dry.
Step Six: Refill Joints with Sand
We infill the joints with sand 1/8″ below the edge. We make sure not to overfill or the joints will crack after the sealant dries.
Step Seven: Apply Sealer
Sealers are recommended for pavers, because they extend their life by preventing damage like cracks or sun fading.
