The Importance of Paver Sealing
A beautiful addition to any landscaping job, pavers provide a more natural appearance than concrete slabs. Each shaped piece fits together perfectly in a way that is both organic and elegant. Paver sealing should be your priority after pavers are laid or cleaned. Recommendations vary with use and elemental exposure, but resealing every few years should prolong the life of your pavers and landscaping.
If not appropriately sealed, pavers can be stained or sustain damage from elemental conditions like weather or harmful UV rays. On the other hand, paver sealing improves paver stability, enhances paver color, makes pavers easier to clean, and protects pavers from staining or fading. Give your landscaping a fresh face, and call Liberty Power Wash to give your pavers a fresh look and feel.
After Cleaning, It’s Time to Seal
If you recently had your pavers cleaned but didn’t have them sealed, they will need cleaning again soon. Biological growth, standard on pavers of dense material, can root itself in the natural surface of unsealed pavers and cause staining. However, a properly sealed paver repels stains from algae, mold, and fluids and binds the sand in the joints to make it difficult for weeds to germinate and for the pavers to separate. Paver sealing in northern Kentucky also helps make stain removal easier and enhances the color of the pavers.

Protect Your Pavers
Prioritizing paver sealing doesn’t just protect them from staining and fading. It also protects them structurally. Water can seep into porous pavers and expand in the cold, causing the pavers to crack. Oil and other harmful fluids can also absorb and stain into unsealed pavers. The paver sealing process seals the natural pores in materials like brick and concrete, blocking liquid absorption. Because sealing blocks out moisture, sealed pavers dry faster after a rainstorm or washing. This has the added benefit of limiting growth conditions for algae and mildew. For this reason, paver sealing is essential for pavers that line a pool, but in northern Kentucky’s humidity and frequent rain, paver sealing is necessary no matter where the pavers are placed.
Paver sealing also includes sealing in the sand between interlocking pavers, so sealing a paver system is preventative for weeds and other growth. It also preserves the sand between pavers by stabilizing it. Environmentally safe sealers are available for our northern Kentucky-based paver sealing team, and we will roll them on quickly and efficiently so you can get back to enjoying your landscaping. Any necessary repairs to damaged pavers should be completed before sealing takes place. Our team will let you know if any preliminary repairs are required as part of your estimate.
Paver sealing will rejuvenate your pavers by bringing out their original color with sealant and protecting them from dirt and oil stains. Choose to create a seal on top of the sand that links the pavers, so that the rain doesn’t wash the sand away and to prevent weed growth between pavers. Paver sealing will extend the life of your pavers and help them look brand new. Contact Liberty Power Wash in Walton, KY for services today!
