What are Pavers?
According to Wikipedia:
Interlocking concrete pavements are a special dry mix pre-cast piece of concrete commonly used in exterior hardscaping pavement applications. Interlocking paving stones are installed over a compacted stone sub-base and a leveling bed of sand. Concrete paving stones can be used for walkways, patios, pool decks and driveways and airport or loading docks.
Instead of connecting the pavers by pouring grout between the joints as one would with tiles, sand particles are spread over the pavers and tamped down. The sand stabilizes the interlocking pavers, yet allows for some flexibility. This type of pavement will absorb stress such as small earthquakes, freezes and thaws, and slight ground erosion by flexing. Therefore, they do not easily crack, break or buckle like poured asphalt or poured concrete.
Why Use Pavers?
Pavers are a beautiful accent to any home landscape. They offer a great contemporary look to any house they are used on and immediately increase the aesthetics of any yard. Besides being very flexible and durable pavers have a weakness like most surfaces facing the wear and tear of mother nature, fading. Fading doesn’t mean pavers aren’t a great feature to use to accent your home, nor does it mean to get rid of existing pavers if you have them. UV exposure affects everything that is outside. Sealers offer protection from this however it is short lived especially when using sealers bought at home improvement or paint stores.
What does GarageFloorCoating.com offer for Pavers?
GarageFloorCoating.com offers the best sealer on the market for your paver applications.
Pavers after the initial installation have a wonderful look to them full of color and life, this like with any surface outside is short lived. The UV exposure from the sun drains the life from the paver stone, leaving a dull colorless stone in the place of what used to be a rich and healthy color. You are probably asking yourself what can be done to protect and enhance the pavers? What sealer is the best option available?
Sure, you could head straight to a store and buy and “over the counter” sealer and do it yourself and save a little bit of money, initially. The problem with consumer based sealers is they don’t last, it’s a cold but hard truth. You will be lucky to get six months to one year out of a consumer sealer before you have to strip the paver stones and re-apply another sealer coat.
Unfortunately going to a commercial grade sealer won’t get you much better results. Most companies that will come and seal your pavers will use a commercial grade sealer but these too have been proven to fail within a couple years of the sun and chemical attacks beating down on it.
