Patio and Paver Cleaning, Re-sanding and Sealing

MOST EFFECTIVE CLEANING PROCESS

Paver Cleaning, Re-Sanding and Sealing

Paver surfaces are a big investment, however we make maintaining that surface easy and affordable. Unlike generic pressure washing companies, we offer a full restoration solution for your patio, driveway, pool deck, and walkways.


Our cleaning process utilizes a high-volume, hot-water cleaning approach to safely and effectively clean the top surface of the pavers - without causing any damage to the masonry. This is done using 24-inch surface cleaners powered by adjustable, industrial-sized water pumps. After the surface is clean, we will proceed to clean out all of the paver joints, clearing all remaining debris from the patio.

Re-sanding and Sealing the surface is the biggest step you can take towards properly maintaining your patio. Re-sanding the joints will prevent weed sprouting, prevent damages caused by insects, and help prevent erosion due to climatic conditions, such as wind, rain and freezing temperatures. Joint sand is also used as a "bedding" to cushion the pavers from shifting and rubbing against each other.

What is polymeric sand?

Polymeric sand is a mixture of premium sand and polymeric powder. When activated with water, the sand hardens and forms a tight lock between the pavers. This provides optimal stability throughout the paver system.
-We recommend using polymeric sand for new project installs due to the sand's ability to harden and create strong joints. Once the pavers are arranged in the desired pattern, it is recommended the polymeric sand fill the joints ~1.5 inches and activated with water to further stabilize the paver system. It is very important that the sand is never the same height as the paver, rather it should be 3/8" below the top of the surface!

What is joint sand?

Joint sand is installed in between the pavers, and it is a vital component in the restoration process. Having sand in the paver joints helps prevent weed growth, provides stability to keep the pavers from shifting under pressure, and prevents water from intruding underneath the pavers. To keep your pavers in place and looking their best, it is crucial that joint sand is added as needed.
-We recommend premium joint sand for restoration and maintenance of existing paver surfaces, as is the best choice when it comes to refilling and restoring your missing paver joint sand. Once finished, we use an industrial joint-stabilizing sealer to wet the joint areas and pavers. This special sealer includes stabilizing polymers to penetrate the new joint sand. Once dry, the sand becomes hard and binds to the pavers and any pre-existing joint sand (if present). This process will not work with polymeric sand - as most polymeric sand manufacturers recommend at least 1 ½” of thickness - which is not always available in most paver restoration projects. 

Sealing: your pavers and sand is simply the best way to prolong the life of your patio. We use ONLY industry-leading sealers, guaranteeing a perfect result every time. So what makes our sealers better than the competition?
