Please contact us to learn more about this process and the difference between Pressure Cleaning and Pressure Washing.
We specialize in cleaning, restoring and sealing concrete, brick, travertine and natural stone. While there are many brands of sealers to choose from, there are really only two “types” of sealers to choose from:
- Penetrates – Breaks through the surface and forms a sealed barrier below the surface. Excellent for blocking out dirt, algae and stains.
- Topical or film forming – Water or solvent-based sealer add a shine to pavers and provides the best UV protection and color enhancement.
We are trained and certified to apply the urethane based new age sealers, and we offer a two-year limited warranty on sealing services.
Is sealing right for you?
Sealing is the most effective way to preserve and protect hardscape surfaces from damage due to erosion, stains and fading caused by UV rays. Sealing will prolong the cleaning-cycle by preventing dirt and algae from penetrating the sealed surfaced and will protect against staining and fading.
What type of sealer works best?
Two types of sealers to choose from are penetrating and topical. Penetrating sealers are typically water-based and form a barrier beneath the surface that blocks dirt, algae and stains. Most penetrants do not enhance color and offer minimal UV protection. Topical sealers, also known as film forming, are water or solvent-based and result in a shiny finish that enhances the color of the surface and provides UV protection.
What is the sealing process?
The process for each sealer will vary. When selecting a sealer you may consider variables such as surface condition and preparation, material composition, and application technique.
First the surface will be cleaned and treated for stains if necessary. After a 24 hour drying process, fresh sand is swept into the joints and topped off before the sealer is applied. For a more uniform texture most sealers are finished with a spray. Once finishing sealant application is complete, most sealers can handle light foot-traffic within a couple of hours and vehicles after at least 48 hours.
