The benefits of sealing your pavers are numerous. In addition to helping them look great, sealing pavers help to extend their life. Paving contractors rely on specialized sealers to protect the surface of pavers from weathering. While the pavers themselves are durable, the color pigments in the pavers can slowly fade due to the ultraviolet rays that reach them. The sealers prevent the deterioration caused by UV rays and extend the life of the pavers.
The Sealers are comparable to an exterior wood stain or paint in that they can change the colors and textures of pavers and create greater visual interest. For example a “wet look” finish provides an attractive, water-resistant patio surface.
Contractors will show you which type of finish will work best for your home. They can give you an on-site demonstration.
Stabilizing interlocking joints work well for installing pool decks. They also reduce weeds growing between pavers.
Stain Removal - Sealing your pavers makes cleanup easier if they are accidentally stained with spilled oil or dirt. Sealing pavers also makes the pavers less porous, which helps prevent stains from happening.
The following are some questions you might have about paver sealing. Hope it helps you to get orientated about this task. At the end, you also find helpful How-to videos.
