It’s surprisingly easy to do paver sealing the wrong way. We can firmly attest to the fact that this is not a “do-it-yourself” sort of project, at least if you wish to avoid some of the headaches we’re about to share with you.
Fleet Kleen wants to help you avoid these paver sealer disasters by employing these four tips.
4 Tips to Avoid Pavers Sealer Disasters
Don’t cheap out on sealer quality.
While you can purchase paver sealers at large department stores, we don’t recommend it because you might have a difficult time discerning the best quality. As with everything else in home improvement, you get what you pay for with paver sealers. Fleet Kleen uses only the best materials that won’t damage your patio or sidewalks. For more information, check out some of our other posts about maintain and clean concrete areas without spending a ton of money or using harsh chemicals.
Don’t use sealer past its expiration.
Just like other chemical substances, your paver sealer comes with a shelf life. If you store it carefully, out of sunlight and in a cool area, you can expect it to last about 12 to 18 months. Using expired sealer will diminish the quality of the finished product.
Get expert applicators to apply the sealer properly.
Paver sealing is actually a dedicated trade, which means there are well-trained technicians to do this task for you. It’s possible to apply the sealer unevenly or heavy-handedly, leaving you with very sloppy results.
Avoid using too much sealer.
It’s no different than waxing or painting a house or car. Common sense informs you that you can overdo it with the sealer. You’ll know there was too much sealer if you notice lots of bubbles, stains, puddles, color distortion, and overlapping lines. As always, get a pro at Fleet Kleen to do this and spare yourself the confusion and guessing games.
