Is it time to reseal my pavers? We generally recommend sealing your pavers every 3 years. There are several factors that will affect this schedule including:
Traffic – a heavily used patio or walkway will need to be sealed sooner than one that sees less “wear and tear”
Site Conditions – Shady areas often have more issues with moss and ground in dirt. These sites might need more frequent cleaning and/or sealing. Sunny, dry areas that are well maintained might need sealing less often. (Ask about our newer antifungal products if your pavers are in a shady location.)
Age – As time passes, the surface of any concrete paver will become worn. When this happens, they more porous. These pavers tend to have a rougher surface, and will benefit from more frequent sealing, perhaps every 2 years, to prolong their lifespan.
Choice of Sealer – There are many sealers to choose from, each has some different considerations. A Natural penetrating sealer can be re-applied safely every few years. These products are “breathable” so there is no danger of trapping moisture under the coating. Other sealers that offer an enhanced wet look will leave a film on top of the pavers. A professional needs to assess these situations to ensure that the pavers are ready for re-sealing to ensure the best results.
