Paver Maintenance

The best thing you can do to maintain your pavers is to seal them properly. This will help prevent wear and tear and staining and will keep colors fresh.

The length of time a proper sealing with the right sealant will last depends on traffic and weather conditions, and on how often the pavers have been sealed previously. One test to see if your pavers need resealing is to run water from a hose onto the pavers. If the water does not bead up, it is time to reseal.

To keep your pavers in good condition, debris should be swept away regularly. Weeds that grow between the pavers should be removed.

Pavers can be cleaned by running water over the surface. A mild liquid detergent can then be applied and allowed to sit for ten minutes, without allowing the cleaner to dry. It is a good idea to test the cleaner on a small area first, to make sure the cleaner doesn't remove color or damage the surface. Ask us for our recommendations on the best cleaners to use for your pavers! After ten minutes is up, the pavers should be scrubbed with a nylon brush and rinsed thoroughly. Do not use a steel brush. Chemical cleaning or pressure washing should only be done by professionals at the time of resealing.

Inspect your pavers regularly. Any cracks or potholes should be repaired immediately to prevent further damage. Lost sand should be replaced to prevent shifting.
