Concrete pavers are a popular outdoor flooring surface. Concrete paving is very porous and stains easily. Its high porosity makes it particularly prone to salt efflorescence. Due to the use of high quality invisible impregnating ingredients in the sealing agent sealed pavers are protected for a long period of time. The durability of pavers is increased four-fold by protecting them. Pavers are the elements of the house that suffer maximum exposure to extreme weather pollution dirt grease and load conditions and therefore they stand a higher risk of being damaged. Low maintenance - The biggest benefit of a coated surface is that it does not require high maintenance. Dirt and other dust do not stick to the film making it easier to wash and keep clean from accumulated dust and debris. A simple wash will ensure your pavers preserve that pristine appearance for many years to come.
Clay brick pavers are made of natural clay that is fired and manufactured at extremely high temperatures. This process makes the bricks strong and ensures that the ingredients are bonded together. Brick pavers are proven to be effective and are considered to be one of the most durable type of paver material. It has been used for thousand of years and continues to be a popular choice. These pavers do not use any dye or pigments. Clay is a natural material it maintains its natural color and will never fade through time. It is available in different shapes and sizes that will suit any type of application.
We frequently install thin pavers on top of base material when the project calls for it. For instance if we are remodeling an existing pool deck and the client wants to expand the deck area we will simply excavate the addition compact four inches of base material and install the thin pavers on top so that they are flush with the thin pavers we just installed over top of the existing pool deck. The reason we choose to use a thin paver in this example is to maintain color shade and variation consistency throughout the entire project. Thick and thin pavers never match exactly because they are manufactured at different times using different aggregates. The variation in color dye blending and moisture content of the sand and aggregates during the manufacturing process is what gives each batch of pavers its own distinct look.
Cleaning pavers should not be put off. The surfaces of the pavers are porous and quickly absorb oil; the longer the oil remains the deeper it sets making the stain permanent. Get oil removers from a local hardware store but make sure it is not acidic. Acidic chemicals can react with the salt of the pavers and damage it. Weeds growing in the pavers are a nuisance especially when they force cracks through the tiles themselves! Sealing pavers mostly avoid this but sometimes if the weeds are not plucked for a long time they can be dislodged from their slots. Apply a weed-killer to get good results. If the pavers are not matt finish applying a stone polish can prevent weeds from growing profusely along with providing protection. If you really want some greenery in between your pavers scatter short rooting grass or herb seeds evenly along the joints.
