Brick paver driveway maintenance and sealing

Brick paver driveways add charm and curb appeal to the landscape of just about any type home. However, after careful and meticulous installation, brick pavers will need upkeep. Upkeep and maintenance of some sort. Possible lifting and re tamping of several bricks back into place. But one consideration in brick paver maintenance is cleaning and sealing of the pavers. Mainly to prevent staining from oils and debris from vehicular traffic. It’s best to have the pavers sealed so debris and stains tarnish the sealer not the paver integrity. There are two types of sealer offered that detail either a dry paver look when the sealer was dry or a sheen or wet look after sealer application is completed.
This type of brick paver maintenance should be left to a professional. There is also precautions not to seal the pavers before the breathing out of efflorescence has been completed usually 30 -45 days after the kiln date marked on the brick paver lot detail sheet. If you seal too quickly you can seal and trap in the white oozing efflorescence. Also another benefit of sealing is to prevent the integrity of the masonry joints like seen on this stone wall coping project.
