Paver Sealer Turned WhiteBrick Paver Sealer Remover and Stripping Instructions

Brick pavers can make beautiful exterior surfaces from driveways and sidewalks to patios and landscape walls. Sealing brick pavers can enhance their natural beauty and provide lasting protection from Mother Nature.

There are many types of brick paver sealers. Water based, oil based, and acrylic sealers are just a few examples. They can come in many finishes from matte to a glossy “wet look.” No brick paver sealer will last forever so maintenance becomes a necessity.

When an old brick paver sealer simply wears off and fades away the surface can be cleaned and refinished with a new brick paver sealer. But sometimes brick paver sealers can fail prematurely. This happens for several reasons.

 

Over application is a common occurrence. This causes the brick paver sealer to turn white or yellow as it becomes an eyesore. A cheap or inferior paver sealer may also fail before you expect it to. Moisture is also an enemy of a brick paver sealer and can cause a sealer to fail.

When a brick paver sealer fails it is necessary to remove it before you can reapply and a new coat of paver sealer. SuperSeal Brick Paver Sealer Remover is the only product on the market that will remove most acrylic “wet look” brick paver sealers.

This brick paver sealer remover is user-friendly and applies in a few easy steps.

1. Roll the brick paver sealer remover onto the failed sealer. Best to apply in sections of about 100 sq. feet at a time. This will allow the stripper to stay active and not dry out.

2. Let the sealer remover dwell on the failed paver sealer for 15-20 minutes.

3. Pressure wash the brick paver surface. Reapply to stubborn areas as needed.

Brick paver sealer remover coverage rates can vary depending on the sealer being removed. Check the coverage rates for the product you use. Always follow the manufacturers instructions and wear protective gear when handling.

After all the existing failed brick paver sealer is removed rinse the surface thoroughly and let the brick pavers dry for 1-2 days prior to re-sealing.

Keeping your brick pavers sealed and maintained improves their appearance and longevity. It is a great way to protect your investment and by following these guidelines and using a quality brick paver sealer remover it can be an easy weekend project.

    I have an apt in a NYC building. sadly, big walls of red brick were sealed with a glossy finish. prior to that, the brick was an array of beautiful natural colors that had been assembled and faded over 100 years... do you have any products and advise for me to remove brick sealer to get rid of the now glossy and dark red finish?? I'm desperate to restore the brick back to its original glory... thank you!! Aaron

    I sealed my covered patio 48 hours ago and it’s still pretty tacky. I think I used too much and may need to remove it. How long before the tackiness should wear off?

      Depends on the sealer brand you applied. It may not cure and will need to be stripped over over applied.

    Brick pavers on porch have an old Thompson’s Brick Sealer on them. Trying to remove it and reseal. Have tried recommendations from many Home Improvement Stores here locally. Some suggestions have been paint remover, mineral spirits, etc. They have helped a little, but no overall major improvements. Whitish film on the surface now of many of the bricks. Would this product take care of the job at hand? Tired of trying suggestions from these retailers that do not work!
    But I know this is not an impossible task. There HAS to be some type of solution to the problem!
    Thanks, in advance, for advice, suggestions, and feedback!

    We need to strip our pavers but do not know whether the old sealer is acrylic or water based. Will the stripper mentioned here remove both acrylic and water?

      Brick Paver Sealer · 05/25/2020
      It removes both water-based and solvent-based acrylic sealers. Acrylic is in both.

    I applied valspar gloss sealer to my pavers and the next day there were cloudy or milky looking areas on the pavers. I have spent a lot of money trying to get these removed and not successful. What can I do to get these areas of the valspar sealer I used off. Looks terrible and not what I expected at all. I have spent lots of time trying to get this ugly site removed.

    More then likley yes. Might want to clean and do one test spot with the new sealer to make sure it dries correctly after 24 hours. Look at the Super Seal 25 Paver Sealer.
