Pavers are used extensively in decks, driveways, and other outdoor scenarios. They differ from slabs in being small and thick. They come in different shapes and patterns and are pleasant on the eye as well. To ensure that they last long, pavers have to be sealed. As they are exposed to outdoor elements, they undergo a lot of changes if not taken care of. Paver sealing is a way to extend their life whilst retaining their looks as good as new. Let us understand why paver sealing is an important investment.
Aesthetic Appeal and Flexibility
Applying a sealant makes your paver look a lot better. It gives them a clean and glossy finish, thus instantly increasing their appeal. Since the sealant is made of clear acrylic, it enhances the hue and color of the paver underneath. Property owners looking to enhance the appearance of their property often start with paver sealing to attract people. Sealing makes your decks and driveways low maintenance and easy to take care of as well. Pavers are also more flexible than traditional driveways and can be easily adjusted to fit your individual’s needs.
Safety and Protection
Sealing your pavers provides round-the-clock protection through all seasons. They prevent cracks from forming due to temperature changes. Further, a sealant when applied properly will not allow the accumulation of dirt and stains. It creates an invisible layer that repels water, oil, and anything else which might accidentally spill. It also protects from moisture accumulation, making it easy to clean.
Prevents Growth of Weeds
Weeds can be very tricky to tackle and get rid of when it develops between your pavers. They develop primarily between pavers in the joints where there is loose sand. Applying a joint stabilizing sealer hardens the sand in the joints making it difficult for the weeds to grow or develop. The sealer also settles into the pores of the paver making it less prone to all types of growth.
Pavers are held together by the sand in between the joints. When the sand disappears, small gaps develop causing the pavers to lift up, depress, or move around. Protecting them from temperature changes and weed growth also enhances their life in the long run. Also, pavers last longer than asphalt and are less expensive due to the low maintenance. Applying a sealer also means fewer repairs are required, thus reducing overall expenditure in the long run.
Preventing Water Stagnation
Pavers are made up of porous material and tend to trap moisture beneath the installation. It makes it difficult to create a firm foundation as there is no way to remove the moisture once it has reached underneath. Applying a sealer creates a barrier on the top which ensures water does not stagnate in the property and helps to improve the drainage system.
