Sealing pavers will enhance the color of the pavers giving a new look. Once applied a sealant the surface will remain stain free and it will also be easy to clean it. Bricks absorb oil and stains fast making your pavement dirty and slippery. High pressure cleaning is not recommended for brick pavers as it can damage the bricks. Always clean it using a low pressure cleaner. Color pigments are often used in concrete pavers. Rampant usage of chemicals can cause fading or discoloration of the pavers. Consult a professional before start cleaning concrete pavers. After cleaning you can apply a sealant so that the color remains protected for a long time.

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.
In fact you can typically notice a serious difference between any two paver areas in color shade or variation whether these areas were simply produced at different times or theres a difference in product thickness. This aesthetic sacrifice does not work for most clients and using a thin paver over prepared base for a purely pedestrian area is completely functional other than the aforementioned compaction difference when compared with a thick paver. If a client is simply interested in a new paver patio then thick pavers are the order of the day. Believe or not but thick pavers cost the same as thin pavers! Therefore there is not a difference in the project cost for the client when choosing to construct a brand new patio. Occasionally however a client simply likes the look be it shape or color of a thin paver vendor better than any of the options from the thick paver option. If this is the case we maintain that the aesthetics are the main priority of the project and we will utilize the thin pavers over prepared base.
