Sealing Pavers & Patios
Pavers should be sealed after installation, a regular paver sealing schedule will help increase the longevity of pavers and maintain the vibrancy of their original look for years to come.
Some homeowners wonder if they should seal their pavers and stone walkways — our answer is always yes and for a few reasons.
To start, any sealer you choose will help make pavers resistant to stains. Be the stain from spilled material like oil or dirt, food or animal waste, etc.
Also, sealed pavers have an additional shield from harmful UV rays, which will help your pavers retain their color longer.
While most modern pavers are manufactured to resist degrading UV rays, the benefits of an additional layer of protection are visibly helpful.
At Bergen Wash and Seal, we recommend using a joint stabilizing sealer; this type of seal is ideal for homes in Bergen County. Joint stabilizing sealers travel into the surface of the paver and into the sand in the joint itself. This added benefit trumps the performance of the traditional sealer. This joint-stabilizing sealer type can’t be beaten in an area like ours that sees snow, rain, and ice and rapid freeze and thaw cycles in the winter.
Our team is happy to review all the options available with you at the time of your estimate. Together we will inspect your pavers and determine the best course of cleaning and sealing for them.
