Is it necessary to seal pavers?
Yes! Concrete pavers should be sealed. Paving stones are manufactured with the highest quality cement, but cement is a corrosive material that wears under natural elements.
The sun, rain and cold, can easily wear the surface of pavers, and a good sealing job with the right sealing product, applied by a professional technician of sealing, will create a layer of protection over the paving stones making them water repellent and weather proof. This will protect the concrete surface from corrosion.
A good sealer penetrates the paver surface and stays there for many years, even if the look of the sealer goes away, the color and texture of the pavers will stay new.
Gunite Swimming Pool in Cold Spring Harbor NY 11724, designed and built by Gappsi
This 20′ by 50′ gunite swimming pool was built in Cold Spring Harbor Long Island, NY. This gunite swimming pool has a double Roman end shape with a raised spillover spa along the 50′ side. Steps are incorporated on each side of the spa for entering and exiting the pool. A full-width sun deck is equipped with reversed circular steps to mirror the pool Roman end. The 6′ high Porcelain tile was installed and styled to create a unique mosaic design, under the entire pool, coping and spa. The finish for the inside of the pool is Taho Blue Diamond Bright, which was applied on the walls and then acid washed for an etched texture and finish. The masonry for the pool was designed to complement the pool shape and give the customer plenty of patio area around the entire pool. The masonry was also designed to work with the great changes in the backyard slopes. The pool coping, patio and venire for the spa walls, including the retaining walls and steps, are the Melfi natural stones selected from the Gappsi natural stone collection. The pool coping is a multi-sized pattern with a split tumble rock face front. The venire is a combination of 2’ and 4’ split face Tumble. The pavers is a roman pattern, multi-sized natural stones with a natural cleft and tumbled. A 5’ aluminum fencing was installed to surround the entire pool area and a simple landscaping was needed for the aesthetic. The pool and patio design layout have an immaculate beauty because when using the same color and type of stones for the floors/walls in different finishes gives the appearance of a cohesive finish. The design was manufactured by Giuseppe Abbrancati and the job was constructed by Gappsi Group. For more info visit http://www.gappsi.com or call us at 631-543-1177.
