Each year we make one major improvement to our home which will enhance its beauty or improve on maintenance time from us. We always look for things that will increase the re-sale value of our home when that time comes. Balanced with this are eco-friendly considerations for our neighborhood and city. Our driveway is the current project. We have already ruled out asphalt and poured concrete. Both have the potential to crack and give a negative eye-appeal and possible hazard for tripping. They are not the best eco-friendly structures. Solid surfaces let the rain water run down carrying leaves and other debris into the street and sewers.
Apply a paver sealer if applicable and if desired. There are many options when choosing paver sealers. Some will have a glossy wet look which often darkens the color of you pavers (which you may or may not desire). Some paver sealers have a matte finish while others are completely invisible. The sealer creates a durable barrier against liquid absorption on the paver itself (as opposed to the joint stabilizing sealer which hardens the joint sand). Brick paver sealers will help prevent staining and will keep your pavers looking cleaner for a much longer period of time. Some high end pavers have a stain resistant surface and this step is unnecessary. Follow the instructions of the sealers manufacturer on how to apply it properly.
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.
At last sand is set up between the cracks to avoid weed growth. If pavers are installed properly they can last for years without any maintenance work. If you take soil compactors on rent you can install pavers very easily. If you borrow soil compactors machine pavers can be installed on an even surface. Apart from soil compactor shovel will be required to dig out the dirt in the area where the pavers will be installed. You will also require a stiff broom to sweep the packing material into the gaps between the pavers. Different types of pavers are Brick stone concrete and interlocking pavers. Some benefits of concrete pavers are they are available in various colors styles and designs. They are flexible for all weather conditions.
