Making your pavers last and look like new long-term doesn’t have to take a ton of time and effort; it’s much more about working smarter than it is about working harder. Taking care of your pavers is as simple as setting them up for success early on. Today, we’re going over just how low-maintenance paver care can be, from the day they’re installed to long-term paver care. Let’s get started.

Paver Installation

Make sure you do your research about which pavers are the best fit for your exteriors. If your home has a pool, consider slip-resistant options like travertine or brick. On the other hand, if you make a lot of use out of your home’s exteriors with things like barbecues and family gatherings, definitely consider getting pavers that are especially sturdy, like stone or brick.

Paver Sealing

The single most important thing you can do to preserve your pavers for long-term wear is to get them sealed. Usually, sealing occurs about a month after the pavers are installed. Paver sealer is a transparent but virtually impenetrable coating that protects your pavers against a variety of things, including water, wind, scratching, and everyday wear and tear. This thin but powerful layer allows your pavers to remain virtually untouched, allowing them to look like new even after years of wear. Generally speaking, a coat of well-applied paver sealer lasts between three and five years, so one sealer installation goes a tremendously long way in protecting and preserving your pavers.

Choosing a Great Sealer Installer

Your paver sealer is only as good as its installation, and the best way to make sure your sealer lasts is to choose a professional you can trust to do an excellent job. Look for a sealer company who will pressure wash your pavers before applying the sealer in order to make sure that it goes on as evenly and smoothly as possible. On top of that, the best thing you can do to find a great paver sealer professional is to look for a licensed and certified team with excellent online reviews. Once you find a reliable paver sealer professional, you’ll be well set up for success.

Paver Cleaning

Spot-cleaning your pavers after big events or storms is always a great idea. If you begin to notice staining on the surface of your pavers and you haven’t had sealer applied, it’s a good call to get them pressure washed before doing anything else. If you have had sealer applied before and are noticing some staining that doesn’t come off easily, it may be time to reapply it.
