What Your Pavers
Should NOT Look Like
Beware Of Bad Sealing Jobs & Inexperienced Paver Sealing Services
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?

Description Of Work:
A contractor was hired, upon the recommendation of the weekly pool maintenance company that has serviced my son’s pool for the last three years. The contractor was paid to fix some collapsed pavers around the pool deck; pressure wash the deck, re-sand between the joints of the pavers and apply sealant. The contractor did such a terrible job that Tropical Paver Sealing was hired to restore the pool deck to close to what it looked like before the contractor ruined it.
Review: My son, whom I help out because he travels extensively, wanted to start preparing his home for sale. There were a few low spots around his pool deck. I called his regular maintenance pool service to ask if they do these type of repairs. They didn’t but recommended two different companies. The first company was too busy, the second company came to give an estimate. The second company stated it would be no problem to repair the low spots around the pool deck. The service person also stated that the decking should be pressure washed, re-sanded to prevent week growth, and sealed to give the block a slight wet look. I informed my son, and he agreed. The contractor stated that the cost would be $1,510. I thought the cost was more than fair, in fact a little low but I wasn’t going to argue. The contractor started the job. My son paid the contractor and my son left for six weeks. When my son came back his pool deck was all full of weeds, one area of the block that had been repaired had fallen into the soft ground, there was sand all over the top of the pool deck and the sealant was sprayed on top of the sand-gluing the sand to the top of the pool deck. The company was called and left text messages, they never responded back.
I checked Angie’s List and found Tropical Paver Sealing. I called and explained the situation to Dana. Dana came out immediately and looked at the pool deck. Dana stated they could restore it but it would be a lot of work and it wouldn’t come all the way back to what it was. My son didn’t care…he wanted it restored the best it could be because he wanted to put the home up for sale. Dana sent a crew of two guys and expected it to take a full day just to strip it and part of another day to sand it and seal it. After a few hours the two-man crew called Dana and said the stripping was not coming along as they expected. Dana had to put four-men on it and they took two one-half days to do 3 strippings, pressure wash, re-sand the joints, and 3 seals to get it to look back to normal. There are still a few areas that are stained, but it looks so much better. Dana was in contact with me every day to tell the progress. He was also patient when i asked questions. The pavers looked fabulous…like they should’ve looked when we hired the first contractor. p.s. Dana also gave us the name of a company that could really repair the soft areas around the pool deck and did a great job too
