Paving bricks at a 40mm thickness are also ideal for paving pool surrounds as theyre the same thickness as the majority of pool coping available. This helps to blend your landscaping efforts and reduce the risk of tripping or falling on uneven levels around your pool area. So many Australian homes featured verandas pergolas or under-main-roof alfresco areas as outdoor living areas these days. Choosing outdoor pavers for these areas should be relatively easy as there are plenty of styles and colours to choose from to highlight your outdoor entertaining area.

Power wash brick paver areas using a 2700 psi power washer or greater. You may or may not need to use a paver cleaner during this process. Sweep joint sand into all the joints of the pavers and water down with a light spray from a garden hose. Sweep sand and water down a second time to ensure joints are full of joint sand. Once dry confirm joints are full with joint sand and move on to the next step. Having these joints completely filled and compacted will help maintain paver stability. Apply a joint stabilizing sealer on all the paver areas. The sealer hardens the sand which helps prevent water intrusion in the joints and insects digging through it! Follow the instructions of the manufacturer on how to apply sealer.
Dirt does not tend to tick on them stubbornly and hence a simple wiping of the surface or pressure washing if stains are too greasy gets rid of any unwanted deposited. In fact the water board recommends sealing concrete pavers in order to save water. By sealing a paver you are essentially putting a shield that protects it from being damaged due to various factors such as reaction with acid and fungal infestations. Further it prevents sand and cement in the joints from washing out due to heavy rains and storms thus preventing loosening of stones. The hazardous effects of freezing and thawing that tend to ruin most of the pavers is eliminated due to sealing. Sealing pavers protects them under all weathers and high traffic loads. As a result your paver is well preserved.
