When to Seal Pavers?It is better if you let professionals do the paver sealing job. They know the right application techniques and the right time to seal your paver amenities. For example, sealing a concrete pavement after the curing stage would be fine but sealing a newly installed brick paver patio or driveway is not recommended. Most professionals will recommend paver sealing one year after the installation. This will allow for brick efflorescence. Efflorescence is a process where salts from the brick creep to the surface due to moisture. It leaves a trail of white discoloration on the surface of the brick. If the paver feature is sealed too early, you may need to scrape the sealant to clean the efflorescence. For older paver installation, you can have them sealed at any time. The bricks will have to be cleaned and dried before sealant treatment can be done.
Paver Sealing ProductsThere are specific types of paver sealing products for your outdoor features and amenities. You can also choose from the different types of finishes available. You can choose from high-gloss, low-gloss, or penetrating seals. For concrete bricks, you can have reactive chemical sealers which can last ten years or more. On the other hand, epoxy or urethane-based sealers can last from 5 to 10 years. Acrylic resin sealers typically last from 1 to 3 years. There are other factors to consider when choosing the type of sealer for your pavement. Reactive chemical penetrating sealers will look invisible because they penetrate the paver material. Epoxies and solvent-based acrylic resin sealers have a high-gloss finish and enhance the color of the paver. Meanwhile, water-based acrylic resin sealers have a moderate level of glossy finish and color enhancement. Patios and other outdoor living features would look great if a high-gloss finish will be used. Meanwhile, low-gloss finishes work best for the driveway, walkways, and pathways.
