Benefits to Sealing Pavers

Why seal?

There are many befits and advantages to sealing pavers and brick surfaces in both residential and commercial settings. Pavers are made from blends of concrete and stone particles that are susceptible to water, sun, and oil damage. Your pavers can breakdown over time when exposed to natural and unnatural elements in day to day life. Majority of pavers are very porous to help create a natural brick look, which results in highly susceptible to mold and fungal formations. It is imperative that these surfaces are sealed to protect and increase lifespan of your pavers.

How to Seal Pavers

Surface Preparation

Prior to the application of Glaze ‘N Seal products, surface must be thoroughly clean and dry. Remove all dirt, oil, grease, paint, efflorescence and surface sealers. General cleaning may be done using Glaze ‘N Seal Heavy Duty Cleaner for Concrete and Masonry. For efflorescence stains use Glaze ‘N Seal Efflorescence Remover. When acid has been used for any reason, surface must be neutralized. We recommend Glaze ‘N Seal Neutralizing Rinse. Read product container for specific instructions and cautions with any cleaner. Never mix cleaners. Allow at least 24 hours of drying time before sealing (48 hours if power washing has been done or if temperature is cool). New concrete pavers should cure 14 days or more before sealing. Applying sealer to a damp or incompletely cured surface may cause a hazy appearance or loss of adhesion. After tamping down the joint sand and sweeping the application area clean be sure the sand is at least 1/8 inch below the surface of the pavers. The sand should be dry to its full depth before sealing for best results. Note: Before applying Glaze ‘N Seal products to the entire surface, test several small areas to verify the product’s appearance, penetration and protective ability.

Application Procedure

Use garden-type sprayer, low pressure airless sprayer, natural bristle brush, short nap roller or squeegee for application. Apply one coat in liberal saturating manner so that joints are saturated with PAVER SEALER. Ensure that all joints are flooded to maximize sealer soaking into the dry sand. Roll back or squeegee any excess product to avoid puddling on the surface. Allow additional drying time in moist, cool climates. An optional second coat may be applied after two hours if desired to increase protection and gloss. For added slip resistance Glaze’ N Seal Grip ‘N Seal Slip Resistance Additive may be added to the second coat of sealer.
