Nicolock Driveway Pavers Cleaning & Sealing, Huntington Bay NY 11743, by Gappsi

Nicolock Driveway Pavers Cleaning & Sealing, Huntington Bay NY 11743, by Gappsi

Nicolock oyster blend rustico pavers being sealed in Huntington NY 11743. The sealing process begins with pressure washing the entire patio, removing all dirt/debris from the stone surface and in between the joints. Next, Nexgel Techniseal synthetic sand is applied in between the pavers joints and vibrated with a mechanical plate compactor. The plate compactor has rubber rollers to prevent the stones from cracking or scratching. This vibrating process allows the sand to fall in between the joints and density. Then, we clean the pavers with brooms and landscape blowers, to clean the excess sand from the pavers surface and to evenly spread the sand in between the pavers joints. The next step is to wash the pavers by misting water to penetrate the synthetic sand into the paver joints all the way down below the pavers. The sand and water activate a chemical reaction of the pollen that’s in the sand to cause the sand to harden. Finally, the application of the sealer, two parts components urethane dealer, specially formulated for Gappsi, is applied to the pavers surface and the sand joints to prevent stones from staining, extend their life cycle and further enhance their texture, color, and surface. Call Gappsi at 631-543-1177 for any cleaning, sealing, paver driveways/patio restoration and repairs in Huntington Bay NY.

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.
