If you have a brick pavers patio, you know that it can be a beautiful and durable addition to your home. However, if it isn’t sealed properly, it can become stained and faded over time. In this blog post, we will discuss how to seal brick pavers so that they look new for years to come!
The pressure washer is an important part of the process. It will help you clean off any dirt and grime that has accumulated on your brick pavers patio. However, it is not meant for cleaning the pavers themselves or their joints, edges, or patio surface itself.
Weeds can grow between the bricks, so it’s important to keep them at bay. The easiest way is to use an organic weed killer that won’t harm your lawn or garden plants. Sweep up any debris from between the pavers and spray with a mix of one part vinegar and three parts water. After spraying, wait for about three hours before walking on them again—you don’t want to damage your feet!
Check all joints
The next step is to check all joints and make sure they are tight. There should be no gaps between pavers and no cracks.
If there are weeds, moss or moisture present in the joint then you will need to remove them before sealing your patio. The sealer will not adhere properly if there is dirt on the bricks or any other debris that may prevent adhesion of the sealer.
Inspect your brick pavers patio for signs of wear such as scuffs, scratches or chips in the finish of your brick pavers. If there are any signs of damage then you will want to repair them before applying a new top coat layer of sealant so that you do not have further issues down the road due to erosion caused by water penetration into these holes over time when it rains heavily outside during summer months when temperatures rise above 85° Fahrenheit (29° Celsius) throughout most regions where people live today worldwide!
Ease off 45 degree edges on pavers with a chisel
If you have pavers with sharp 90-degree edges, you can cut off the sharp edge using a chisel and hammer. The process is simple:
- Use a masonry chisel to chip away bits of brick until the edge is flattened out.
- Repeat this process on all sides of each stone until they are 45 degrees instead of 90 degrees (or whatever angle you’d prefer).
If your pavers have sharper edges than 45 degrees, use an angle grinder with a cutting wheel attachment to shave down their tops so they’re flat and level with one another. You can also use this tool for initial shaping before using bricks to fill in any gaps between pavers if necessary–just make sure not to overdo it with the grinding because then there won’t be enough room between each one!

- Use a fine sand, not pea gravel
- Apply the sand with a broom
- Use a sprayer to apply the sand
- Use a trowel to apply the sand
- Use a sprayer to apply the water (or use a hose)
Brick pavers are beautiful and when you seal brick pavers they will continue to be beautiful for years to come
Bricking is an easy and inexpensive way to add character and value to your home. The design options are endless, and the possibilities for creative expression are nearly limitless. Brick pavers can be installed in many different patterns to create interesting shapes and textures using mortar, or they can be laid level on top of a concrete patio. If you choose to install brick pavers on top of a concrete slab, it’s imperative that you seal them before winter arrives so that they will last for years to come.
When it comes time for sealing brick pavers, there are three main options: use a water-based product; use an oil-based product; or use no sealant at all (if you prefer). No matter which method you choose, remember that sealing your pavers with either type will make them waterproof; however, if they’re not sealed then water may get trapped between each individual piece which could lead them becoming damaged over time as well as make any stains harder—or even impossible—to remove later down the road when needed most (like during Spring Cleaning).
