Protecting Your Investment

Image
After investing in pavers for a new outdoor living space or driveway, you should consider investing in protecting your investment by sealing your pavers. Sealers have come a long way in the past few years 


Tips for sealing your pavers:
-Always use a professional when sealing your patio or driveway area
-Recommended wait is at least 3 months (a season) to apply sealer to ensure efflorescence does not get trapped.
-Wait 24 hours before walking, putting furniture, or driving on newly sealed pavers.
