Paver Efflorescence and Sealers



Why Seal Your Pavers?

Paver sealing

Sealing your pavements will help protect, clean and maintain its beauty for much longer. Sealing gives your pavers a protective coating, so if you stain it with oil or grease, it is much easier to remove than it would be if your pavers were not sealed.

Sealing your pavers is the best way to maintain that new look of your driveways, patios and walkways. It creates a clear gloss finish, making the color brighter, while repelling grease and oil stains.

Sealing your pavers helps to promote durability, longevity and the overall aesthetic beauty of your paved areas.

Two Main Types of Sealers

Film Formers

This type of sealer helps to protect your pavers by blocking the effects of water and other contaminants. Film Formers generate a barrier on the surface of the pavers, often a gloss finish. The sheen finish also helps prolong that new look color.

Penetrants

This type of sealer actually penetrates into the pavers’ material, from 1 to 4 mls. deep. These sealers are mostly used for absorbent materials such as concrete. Penetrants help to repel water and resist stain damage. Penetrant sealers also promote longevity and durability of the life and look of your pavers.

Applications

Sealing agents can be applied to most types of surface pavement materials. These include concrete, slate, clay, granite, natural stone, stamped concrete and block pavers.
