Why Seal Brick Pavers

Paver Sealers can enhance the natural colors of your brick and come in Matte, Semi-Gloss, and Higher-Gloss shine. If a “shiny” appearance is not desired, you can add a Non-Shiny Concrete Sealer for Protection only. There are also Joint Sand Stabilizing Sealers that will solidify the sand between paver stones.

My Brick Paver Restoration Tips

  1. The use of a pressure washer is suggested when cleaning the brick pavers. Cleaning chemicals are not needed when removing dirt, grime, and vegetation. If you have stains on your brick pavers, we suggest using a cleaner specific to the type of stain. i.e., a rust remover to clean rust, an oil stain remover to clean oil drips, etc. Paver Cleaners
  2. Removal of old paver sealers is suggested if your previous sealer has failed. Usually, this is noticeable by a yellowing or whitening of the old sealer. If you do not have any discoloration, then it is not necessary to remove the old coatings. Paver Stripper
  3. Allow the brick pavers to dry thoroughly for 1-2 days.
  4. If needed, sweep in new jointing sand between the stones. You could use many types of sand. The most popular is play sand or baby sand. Other options can be joint sand and polymeric sand. These types of sand are usually found only at paver stone yards. Make sure the sand is dry and not wet!
  5. Blow or sweep off excess sand. We strongly suggest that the sand level is at least 1/4″ from the top of the beveled edge of the paver bricks. Be very careful when removing all the sand!
  6. Apply sealer by rolling or spraying. If rolling, exercise extreme caution to prevent removing sand from the joints and leaving it on top of the pavers! A sponge-type roller usually works better than a nap roller. If spraying a solvent-based sealer, you must use a heavy-duty metal sprayer. Cheap plastic sprayers will not work with solvent-based brick paver sealers, but they will work with water-based sealers. Do not apply sealer to wet or high-moisture content pavers! The sealer will turn whitish.
  7. Let dry for 3-4 fours for foot traffic and 24 hours for vehicular or heavy-duty traffic.

*Make sure that you follow all manufacturer’s instructions.

How To Seal Pavers

When to Seal New Pavers

Installing pavers is an excellent way to boost your home’s curb appeal and property value. Paver designs, and ideas can seem endless. Most commonly, pavers are used for driveways, sidewalks, patios, pool decks, and more. The type, shape, look, size, and color of pavers can also vary widely in choice. There are so many varieties of pavers in today’s market, but that can be part of the fun. After spending a lot of time and money picking your paver design and once the pavers are installed, it is essential to protect your investment.

Sealing new pavers will help create a more durable structure because the sealer solidifies joint sands and locks the pavers together. Paver sealer also retards joint sand erosion by creating a weather barrier. Depending on the sealer, it can also enhance the pavers’ natural beauty, increasing the overall appearance.

There has been some debate about when to seal new pavers. Generally speaking, you can seal new pavers as soon as the surface and ground around them are dry. In other words, new pavers can be sealed immediately after the surface dries following installation as long as you use a breathable “cure and seal” paver sealer.

However, waiting a few weeks to ensure no efflorescence is a common occurrence and is recommended by some experts. Efflorescence is the release of salts in the pavers. Salts can seep from the surface, creating a white haze on the pavers. If efflorescence does show up, cleaning the pavers with efflorescence cleaner before sealing them is essential.

My Breathable Paver Sealers

  • SuperSeal25, SuperSeal30, SuperSeal Matte, Super Seal VOC, and Supreme Shield SB-600
  • Surebond SB-6000, Surebond SB-8700

Sealing new pavers is a good idea, and knowing when to seal them is the key to a successful project. If well-kept and maintained regularly, sealed pavers can last many years and give you prolonged use time. 

How I Maintain Brick Paver Sealers

I have found that Brick Paver Sealers will dull and lose their luster over time but will still “seal” the surface for many years. Using my tips below, you can extend the life and look of your paver sealer without the need to seal it every year.

  1. Start by using a Paver Sealer
  2. Apply a solvent such as Aromatic 100 to restore the sealer’s appearance every 12-18 months. This solvent will reset the current sealer, making it look brand new. The sealer will remain intact, but it can dull from dirt and Ultraviolet radiation. You can do this process 1-2 times before reapplying the sealer is necessary.
  3. I reapply a Paver Sealer every 2-3 years as needed

These simple steps will save you the money of sealing too often and the potential issues of overapplication.
