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.
Once sealed the paver wears a clean and glossy look. If you have used color pigment while laying the paver or a naturally colored stone then a coat on it enhances the appearance of the color. Sealers that use UV protection elements prevent fading of the paver due to exposure to sunlight. Further since sealing pavers keeps them protected from effervescence and formation of microorganisms they look well maintained and clean because of which the appearance of not only your paver but also your entire house or office is enhanced. If the estimate for sealing your paver inclines slightly to the higher side you do get discouraged. Think of it as an investment that gets you great returns.
The many shapes patterns and colors of Concrete Pavers allow for design creativity as well as delineation of pavement areas such as parking lanes cross walks and intersections. The beauty of pavers adds value and visual appeal to any property. By adding flexibility not possible with rigid pavement pavers can flow with existing landscaping to deliver beauty to any property. Proper installation of the product results in a pavement that is rigid yet flexible. The joints between pavers allow the driveway to move without cracking. In addition they can be unzipped to allow for repairs or access to utilities.
Compared to regular concrete pavers are crack free. Their inherent design allows them to flex and move because of their many dry joints between the individual pavers. No poured concrete is used in the installation only a compacted aggregate base and sand. Edge restraints can be packed concrete along the outer perimeter or special plastic edge restraints designed specifically for pavers. Tile stone flagstone or any other material that must be installed over a concrete slab is subject to cracking of the underlying slab. Poured concrete without stone on top will also crack because its the nature of concrete to crack. Expansion joints are intentionally placed in poured concrete applications to allow for this natural cracking. Unfortunately concrete does not always crack along the expansion joints. And when it doesnt the whole appearance can be ruined.
