Frequently Asked Questions

 

WHAT ARE THE BENEFIT OF PAVERS?

STRONGER THAN CONCRETE: Pavers are stronger than regular poured concrete surfaces and are more durable. It can last for generations with little maintenance.

SAFETY FEATURES: Pavers have a NON SKID surface, even when wet the use of light colors at night with color mixed improve overall safety.

AESTHETIC: Multitude of shapes, patterns and colors. Allows Homeowners MANY design options.

BEAUTY OF PAVERS: Adds value and visual appeal to any property and the patterns are virtually unlimited.

NO SURFACE CRACKING: Pavers are a segmental paving system, which allows for expansion and contraction without producing surface cracks.

EASY TO INSTALL: Can be laid in any weather conditions, requires NO grouted joints, no mortar, no curing time.

MOVEABLE: Pavers can be removed and replaced with ease to allow access to existing utilities or placement of new ones making the pavers reusable.

PRO-ENVIRONMENT: Pavers are made of local natural aggregates with no petroleum based products. Water percolation through the joints of pavers is another favorable quality of this beautiful product.

WHAT DOES SEALING DO FOR PAVERS?

Sealing is meant to protect pavers from the elements(i.e. rain, sun etc...) and anything foreign that were to fall on them. It creates an invisible bar-rier on top of the pavers that repels water, oil, and anything else you might accidentally drop on your driveway or pool deck, so long as you wash it clean as soon as you spot it. Sealing also preserves the pavers' natural beauty for years to come. Unfortunately, sealing does not prevent ants from coming up from your lawn or weeds from sprouting up due to seeds in the air Other products may take care of that problem for you like a good ant killer sprayed in the yard, and a sand joint stabilizer, which is a more expensive product than the regular sealer.

HOW LONG DOES THE PROCESS TAKE?

It's usually a 2-day process (weather permitting of course). The first day, a chemical wash is done followed by pressure cleaning with a 5,000 P.S.I pressure cleaner, getting almost anything out(stubborn penetrating stains like oil and rust may not come out). The second day, given that the surface to be sealed is completely dry, a sealer is sprayed on the pavers.

One or two coats are applied depending on the need. We suggest vehi-cles be driven over completed job 24 hours after sealing is done. Pe-destrians may walk on sealed surface after just a couple of hours.

WHEN DO MY PAVERS NEED RE-SANDING?

Fine sand is the finishing touch of any paver job. It gets into the little spaces between the pavers and secures them, preventing them from moving or shifting. After pressure cleaning, sometimes sand is blasted out of place. Re-sanding is recommended where necessary. Most people think that the sand needs to come all the way to the surface. Sand is securing the pavers together and does not need to be seen to do its job. If spaces are unusually large between the pavers, they might be shifting due to damage to your edge restraints and you might be in need of some repairs.

WILL SEALING MY PAVERS MAKE THEM SHINE?

Sealing is made to protect the pavers and also to preserve their beauty. When a sealer is applied, it darkens the original colors. Some times you might get the pavers to really shine, but it depends on your pavers' colors. Darker colors tend to have a more noticeable sheen then lighter ones. Again this is a bonus that comes with sealing and not its main purpose.

HOW CAN YOU TELL IF YOU NEED TO RESEAL YOUR PAVERS?

A simple test can help you tell if you need sealing or not, but it's not the only one. Turn on your water hose and watch water bead up on the surface. If water is not beading, you might need a fresh coat of sealer.

HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO RESEAL MY PAVERS?

Usually a good sealing job, with a good product should last between one and a half to two years depending on the care given to the area, the traffic, and the elements (i.e. rain, sun etc...).

I HAD MY PAVERS SEALED BEFORE BUT THERE'S A WHITE CLOUDY FILM ON THE SURFACE, CAN IT BE FIXED?

Your pavers are porous. When sealer is applied to your driveway for instance, the pavers absorb it. Two reasons cause that white cloudy film on your pavers:

Number one is moisture. If after pressure cleaning, the job is not given time enough to dry completely, the sealer then traps moisture inside the paver itself. When that moisture tries to escape it is blocked by the barrier set up by the sealer and causes that white look you notice. It is possible to improve the look of your pavers if this happens, but the results do vary.

Number two is saturation. Since the pavers are porous as previously explained, if too much sealer is applied, the paver becomes saturated with the product and becomes not only white, but also very slippery and dangerous. Improving the look of your pavers if this happens is very difficult and costly and is not guaranteed either. A good alternative would be Color Sealing (staining).

WHAT AM I TO EXPECT WHEN YOU COME AND DO REPAIRS, PRESSURE CLEANING AND SEALING FOR ME?

The pressure cleaning and sealing process takes two days. Repairs under one thousand square feet usually take one day (or less) to finish, unless otherwise noted. All work is done weather permitting. If we are to do work around a pool, great care will be taken in keeping your pool clean, but even though we are careful your pool will be subject to debris(i.e. sand, dirt, etc...)from pressure cleaning, re-sanding and/or repairs. If you have a cover for the pool, we will gladly use it. We suggest, in case pool gets excessively dirty to schedule your pool company to inspect your filters and clean your pool. We will contact you on date work is to be performed but due to unpredictability of our work, we cannot give you a specific time of start. Please feel free to contact us for any other questions or concerns you may have.
