Paver stone is colloquially referred to simply as “pavers,” and is one of the most common outdoor building materials. If you have paver stones on your property, knowing how to properly clean and maintain them is essential to ensuring they lasts as long as possible. Rather than letting the elements destroy your paver stone, you need to contact a professional stone sealer today.
Paver Stone Basics
Paver stone is made using a combination of concrete and a coloring agent of choice. Then, the mixture is poured into block-like formations, resembling bricks, which can then be arranged in a variety of patterns. Over time, paver stones are used to make beautiful mosaics in driveways and are also popular for outdoor walkways, patios, roads, and other outdoor surfaces.
Risks of Pavers
While pavers are incredibly beautiful and can add aesthetic value to a property, they, like other stones, have their risks of deterioration. Perhaps the biggest risk of using unsealed paver stones is that they will stain – even wet leaves, for example, can cause major and irreversible staining. Additionally, unsealed pavers can also face risk of rapid natural deterioration based on exposure to the elements, as well as exposure to certain property features, like salt from ponds or chlorine for pools. However, while stains and deterioration are an issue, cracking is typically not (using concrete slabs rather than pavers increases the risk of cracking).
Sealant: The Best Form of Paver Stone Maintenance
While some stains on paver stone can be cleaned using rough brushes and detergent, doing so is a major hassle, and does not guarantee that the stains will be removed, and certainly doesn’t prevent the risk of future stains. Instead of relying on a yearly cleaning, sealing paver stone every three to four years plus, depending upon the quality of the stone, can protect them from the elements and from staining, increasing the length of their life and saving a property owner thousands. A paver sealant is crucial for anyone who wishes to keep their paver stone in an ideal condition. Sealer is meant to protect pavers from rain, wind, sun, and other naturally occurring and non-organic elements.
Sealing paver stones is a quick process and one that usually only takes one day depending upon the weather. While the process is short, sealing paver stones will protect the pavers for years to come. Additionally, sealing paver stone makes for quick and easy spot cleaning.
