There is simply no such thing as a “maintenance free” hardscape, but if you follow these simple tips, keeping your pavers clean will extend their life and extend the time between sealings. Here are 3 easy tips on how to maintain your pavers after they’ve been sealed:
Keep debris off. Regularly blow or sweep off grass clippings, leaves, etc… This will help prevent weed seeds from getting into the sand joints. If you see weeds growing, spray promptly with an herbicide (RoundUp).
Look for moss and mold. Clean the area as soon as you see any green. Remove with a stiff brush and a mild bleach and water solution. You need to prevent the moss or mold spores from rooting in the joints and disturbing the polymeric sand. Click here to read more about moss & mold!
Watch for pests. If you notice ants and other bugs, spray or use granular insecticide to prevent them from tunneling below your hardscape. (Other pests that might require attention include most rodents).
You’ve already made the decision to protect your investment and have your pavers sealed. Following these 3 easy tips will make sure your investment stays protected!
It looks wonderful. We always get three estimates-yours was right in the middle. We can see now that the extra money spent was well worth it. Thanks for all you did.
We are extremely pleased in choosing them to complete our project.
We had several large areas that needed to be addressed, including a driveway, walkway and large patio surrounding our in-ground pool. After dealing with several contractors, The Paver Savers were the clear choice. Their Hardscape Protection Specialist spent over an hour explaining the process to me and explaining the difference between what they were offering compared to the other contractors. We are extremely pleased in choosing them to complete our project.
It’s a brand new courtyard!
Paver Savers did a fabulous job on our courtyard. I’m so happy with the results. It looks new!
Both of the crews that worked here were wonderful, polite, informative & terrific representatives for your company. I look forward to working with Paver Savers to maintain the beautiful job they did.
Better than new
My driveway looks better than when it was new. Jim told me to expect that when I first met him & he was right!
