What Your Pavers Should NOT Look Like
Here are a few pictures of what your pavers should NOT look like. These are photos of our customers homes before we restored their properties. Many of these issues could have been prevented if they would have used our professional sealing company.
This is a tiny sample of bad seal jobs. Many companies that seal pavers have no idea how to do the job right. We spend a lot of time fixing the damage other companies cause to our customers. I have been perfecting my craft for 30 years. Many companies are fly-by-night or farm out the actual work to unskilled labor. Others are simply very bad at what they do.
Do your pavers look like any of these photos?
What our customers say companies do is a rush cleaning if they even do a cleaning and then use cheap inferior products. We also have customers tell us the last company used the same products we use, but they use a very thin layer (so they can bid lower). This will cause the product to fail. Others will use 2 coats, but thin the product beyond the company specifications. This also will cause the sealing lifespan to be shortened.
Many times a handy person can say they know how to seal pavers, but do not let them try their first attempts or new material on your property.

Issues we see daily:
- Whitening of the Pavers (Efflorescence): Moisture in the solvent based sealer, improper sealing technique, bad or wrong sealer, excess sand, etc.
- Excess sand in the sealer: Don't get bamboozled with sales people saying we will throw in sand for free. It costs the company pennies to use, some companies don't care and seal it on the surface of your pavers because they are not neat or they leave your pool deck like a beach.
- Mold & Mildew: Standing water, pavers which are not sealed can mildew, and sand mildews from moisture.
- Growth: tree and plant roots under pavers. Note to customers - the sealers we use are non-toxic and are NOT a pesticide or incecticide it ONLY slows the process down.
- Grease Stains: If a paver is not sealed, grease can penetrate and be permanent. When sealed properly grease and other stains have a much harder time getting through the sealer onto the paver.
