What time of Sand material is best to fill the joints in between pavers?
Polymeric sand is best to use to fill the joints in between pavers. High quality polymeric sand will not leave any stains on the surface. Gappsi vibrates the pavers while sweeping which allows the send to fill the joints tight and also help the sand harden. Sweeping the excess sand off the pavers before wetting the sand is also very important. This prevents the glue that is in the sand to smear the pavers surface. Most importantly, applying a good urethane sealer will further help the sand to harden and prevent ants from digging into the paver joints and weeds from growing on patios.
Do you need to pressure wash pavers before sealing them?
Yes! All concrete and paver surfaces should be cleaned before applying any sealer coating. It is very important that the surface is clean because any stains or materials that get trapped under the sealer will not be able to be cleaned after it’s sealed. Pressure washing pavers is just as important as sealing it.
Using the wrong pressure washing tools could also hurt the pavers. A pressure washer with the wrong nozzle could mark or wear the pavers. The best recommended tool is a high volume, low pressure, hot water pressure washer. The hot water cleans the pavers and prepares the surface for the best result sealing job.
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.
