importance of paver sealing

Compelling Reasons to Choose Pavers

The entrance to your home and area around your garden leave impressions with your guests, neighbors, and those who drive by your home. Not to mention, you are looking at it every day. Whether you want to update your garden or completely redesign the look of your driveway. Pavers are usually more appealing than concrete because you can create your own design. When installed correctly, pavers are incredibly durable and strong. Even when they crack after years and years, paving stones are still easier to repair and/or replace.

Pavers come in a variety of options for you to choose from. You will be surprised by the amount of variety to choose from for designing your driveway. Using pavers on your driveway is sure to bring out the curb appeal you have been wanting. You can mix and match from several combinations to create your own one-of-a-kind driveway. Another benefit of pavers is they provide better drainage. The joints under the pavers allow for rain to easily drain away compared to flat concrete surfaces. The natural features of a paver help to make it more slip-resistant than its concrete counterparts.

When it comes to choosing your material for your patio, walkway, or driveway, the benefits of pavers far outweigh many of the other options in the landscaping industry in numerous ways, including durability, affordability, and aesthetics. Pavers allow for expansion or contraction. You can easily expand your area if you choose. Pavers are easier to maintain. However, it is important to know that if you decide to go with pavers, you need to be sure you are sealing them.

The Importance of Paver Sealing and What You Need to Know

Paver driveways are a great way to boost your homes curb appeal. Paver driveways, patios, walkways, and pool decks have an added benefit of easy maintenance compared to other types of driveway surface options. While pavers may seem expensive with the initial upfront installation, you should know that with proper maintenance, you will have less cost overall in the long run than you would have with other materials.

If you’re considering upgrading your homes curb appeal with paver installations around your home, there are a few things you need to know about why you should seal your pavers. Sealing your pavers is the very best way to protect your investment that you have made. Pavers make for great walkways, patios, driveways, pool decks, and other hardscapes.

Because your pavers are exposed to the elements, they require protection and regular maintenance to keep them looking beautiful for the years to come. After you install your pavers, it is important that they are sealed. This is your final step in your patio paver repair process. Should all pavers be sealed? Yes. Sealing pavers creates an invisible layer on top that repels water, oil, leaves, and anything else.

The Benefits of Paver Sealing

When you get pavers installed, it is important to know they are mostly made of concrete, which can be susceptible to all kinds of staining and marks. Oil, grease, and other things can be very difficult to remove from unsealed pavers because they are so easily absorbed. Unsealed pavers hold water for long periods of time which creates the perfect situation for mold and mildew to form. Our high-performance sealers create a protective finish that helps to restore the original color, repel stains, and help to prevent deterioration. It is never too late to seal your pavers; however, we feel it is always best to seal them soon after a new installation. It Is important to seal your pavers for many benefits:

  • Reduced vegetation and growth of weeds that may want to pop up between your pavers. This ensures your pavers are looking clean and polished. It helps to inhibit weed and grass in the joints.
  • Reduces moss growth.
  • Deters ants and other insects
  • Enhances color, texture, and brightness.
  • Deters any activity of potential mold and mildew growth.
  • Paver sealing helps block out the suns UV rays that potentially fade the color of your pavers, to help reduce overall color fading.
  • Reduces sand erosion as well as other kinds of corrosion of the actual pavers themselves.
  • Increases the durability and protects the pavers from scrapes and cracking


Unsealed pavers will require frequent cleaning from storms and everyday use. Not having sealed pavers makes it a lot more difficult to remove. Unsealed pavers do not stop weed growth. Unsealed pavers have open cracks in them, which allows weed seeds to blow across and settle in the cracks on your unsealed paver space. Another reason it is important to have sealed pavers is that unsealed pavers are less stable. With unsealed pavers, the sand in the joint spaces can be lost, causing gaps. Paver sealing prevents this from happening when there is a joint stabilizing sealer is used.

Choosing The Right Protection

There are different looks you can choose from when sealing your pavers. While all sealers offer the same protection and durability, you can choose a different look. They each offer added benefits such as joint stabilizing and help to resist moss, mold, and mildew. You can choose between a natural or enhanced look.

The natural look is a penetrating sealer that would offer a matte finish. It is sometimes referred to as an “invisible” protector. It is very effective at protecting your pavers. Another option is an enhanced look. This sealer enhances color and gives the appearance of wet pavers. It completely enhances the full depth of pavers.

Paver Sealing by a Pro

Of course, we’re going to say not to do it on your own, that’s our job. Just kidding! However, there are some things that can go wrong if you don’t know what to look for when sealing your pavers. Some common issues when sealing your pavers yourself is hazing, or a white film under the sealer. Unfortunately, if that happens, the only option is to strip all the sealer and start over. Which is why we highly recommend a professional do it.
