Protect and enhance your pavers with professional cleaning & sealing from Fuller Stone Care
One of the biggest advantages of pavers is that they look quite nice with very little need for maintenance. They certainly outshine other common options for paths, patios, driveways, and parking lots, such as gravel or asphalt.
However, if you want your pavers to look their very best, you really should invest in a bit of maintenance. And the most important maintenance service by far is sealing.
Benefits of Sealing Pavers
The best type of sealant to use on pavers is a penetrating sealer that will soak down into the pores of the pavers and provide protection. After being professionally sealed with this type of product by Fuller Stone Care, your pavers will:
- Have an attractive “wet” look
- Be protected against stains
- Be easier to clean
- Be protected against fading
- Have their original color preserved or even enhanced
The best time to seal your pavers is immediately after installation. This ensures that their like-new look will be locked in and preserved for many years to come. However, we can certainly provide sealing for old pavers as well. In this case, we will thoroughly clean the pavers first and work hard to lift any stains as much as possible so that your pavers look their best when the sealer is applied.
What Happens If You Don’t Seal Your Pavers?
If you do not seal your pavers, they are going to age faster. Their pores will be open to absorb water, oil, spilled drinks, and other substances that can cause staining and damage. The pavers’ color may also become faded, which will be particularly unattractive if only a portion of the paved area receives direct sunlight.
What Other Maintenance Do Pavers Need?
Depending on what type of pavers you have, how heavily they are used, and various environmental conditions, you may need to have your pavers professionally cleaned from time to time. Fuller Stone Care is one of the best local contractors you could trust with this task. Unlike your average cleaning company, we have a deep understanding of how different types of cleaning techniques affect different kinds of pavers. You can rely on us to provide a thorough cleaning without damaging your pavers.
