Want your new backyard patio to look beautiful and last for years? It’s all about sealing patio pavers! Thankfully, it’s an easy step to overlook – but take note! By using a sealant, you can protect your investment from dirt, water, and other substances that would harm or discolor the surface.
Here are the main reasons why pavers are sealed:
- Stain Resistance: Sealing pavers patios creates a protective barrier that makes them less porous and more resistant to stains. This is particularly important if the pavers are installed in areas of heavy foot traffic, such as driveways, patios, or outdoor dining areas. Sealing helps prevent oil, grease, food, and other substances from penetrating the paver surface and causing permanent stains.
- Durability and Longevity: Paver sealers can enhance the overall durability and lifespan of the pavers. They act as a shield against the damaging effects of UV rays, harsh weather conditions, freeze-thaw cycles, and erosion. By reducing the penetration of water, moisture, and harmful elements, sealers help prevent cracking, fading, and other forms of deterioration.
- Weed and Moss Prevention: Sealing pavers patios can discourage the growth of weeds, moss, and other plant life between the joints. The sealer creates a less hospitable environment for weeds to take root, making it easier to maintain the paver surface and keep it weed-free. Some sealers also contain additives that inhibit the growth of organic matter, further minimizing maintenance efforts.
