A well-maintained patio can be a great asset to your home. It’s a place that is relaxing and enjoyable to spend time with family or friends. But, over time, even the most beautiful paver patios can start to look worn out and less than desirable. If this happens, don’t worry! There are steps you can take now that will help preserve your investment for years to come with patio paver restoration.
Sealing Your Pavers
Sealing the pavers is a great way to protect them, and it will keep them looking good. Over time, no matter how well you take care of your patio pavers, they will get worn down and start to show their age. That’s where sealing comes in! Sealing your pavers helps prevent cracking by filling in any tiny cracks that may have formed during use or as a result of freeze-thaw cycles. Sealing also keeps stains from penetrating into the brick mortar joints which can cause discoloration over time under certain conditions (like high levels of acid rain). Sealing helps protect against mold and mildew growth on the surface of your paving materials as well as making sure that dirt doesn’t stick too easily so you don’t have to scrub hard every time there’s an outdoor event coming up.
Cleaning Your Pavers
- Clean pavers with a pressure washer. Pressure washing is the easiest way to keep your patio in good shape and ensure that it lasts for many years.
- Use a high-pressure hose to remove dirt and debris. Before using a pressure washer, use a high-pressure hose to remove dirt and debris from the pavers. This will ensure that all of the dirt is removed before getting into more difficult areas with the pressure washer.
- Use a soft brush or broom to remove dirt and debris from cracks in between pavers. When cleaning out the cracks between pavers, use either a soft brush or stiff broom depending on your preference—both can be effective at removing stubborn grime! Gently scrub around each crack until every part has been cleaned thoroughly and no more dirt comes off when you rinse it away with water from your hose (if applicable).
Re-Sealing Your Pavers
When choosing the best concrete sealer for your patio pavers, consider what the sealer will be used for (exterior or interior), its color, and sheen level. Sealers also vary in their degree of protection against water absorption so make sure to choose one that will give you the level of protection you need.
Replacing Worn Down Pavers
In patio paver restoration if your pavers are not only worn down but also cracked and damaged, you will need to remove them. In order to do this, start by removing the plants from the area around where the pavers are located. Next, use an electric drill or hammer drill and a chisel to remove any existing mortar that is holding your patio paver together. Once you have removed all of this mortar, place it in a bucket for disposal later on in this process.
Next up is cleaning out all of that dirt underneath where your patio paver once was, which can be done with a broom gently sweeping over the top of them or using an electric power washer if available (if not then just use water). This step is important because it allows us to get rid of any build-up or grime that may have occurred underneath each individual paver’s surface over time due to erosion wear caused by water runoff from rain storms etc…
