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.
After fixing any sagging areas look for individual pavers that are sitting higher or lower than the surrounding pavers. A paver that sits higher can often be leveled by using a rubber mallet to force it into its proper position. If its too high or doesnt move you may have to remove it so you can remove some of the sand thats below the paver. If it sits low youll have to remove it to add sand until its level. To remove the paver you can purchase a paver removal tool or you can use a small pry bar to loosen the paver and lift it out of its space being careful not to crack or chip the paver. Its a good idea to pressure wash the surface on a yearly basis. Pressure Washing cleans the surface of your pavers and also remove much of the organic material growing between the pavers. Removing the organic material reduces the amount of bugs living in your paver area and helps keep the pavers stable.
