Paver manufacturers are in business to produce as many pavers as quickly and as efficiently as they can. When they have to shut the system down to change out shape molds and adjust machinery to accommodate thin paver thickness they lose a lot of valuable production time. It can take hours to switch from one mold to the next. Additionally since thin pavers arent ordered as often the order quantities are frequently less and the manufacturer is forced to produce less pavers per mold and color. This inefficiency causes increased costs for the producers and they pass those costs on to their customers. So even though thin pavers use fewer raw materials to be produced they take up more time and time is money.
Structural integrity - An indispensable part of enhancing ones pavers is the process of re-sanding the joints which helps in its stability reduces paver loosening and cracks while effectively reducing the effects of erosion on the pavers preventing the exposure of the structural aggregate. A variety of sealing pavers also provides resistance against salts acids and other corrosive material. Sealing pavers also helps in conservation of water as it protects the joint-sand from erosion. Appearance - The paver wears a clean and glossy look once it is sealed. Sealing paver enhances the appearance of its color.
