Our cleaning method and equipment will:
Most jobs can be cleaned, rinsed and sealed in one day. Depending on which sealer is needed, the homeowner can drive on the pavers in 24 to 72 hours. Foot traffic is usually okay in 4 to 6 hours.
Every week we repair and re-seal jobs that were incorrectly done by other companies or sometimes by the owners themselves. Somehow, our customers didn't find out from the retailer who sold it or the contractor who applied it that their sealer would eventually turn grey and cloudy until it was too late. And they were not told that rolling sealer onto their pavers would result in ugly roller marks and drip marks.
If we do your job, you won't end up with these all-too-common problems. Call us, and we can help you avoid a great deal of grief and expense.
From our beginnings in 2004, it has been important to us to price our jobs competitively. Fortunately, our penetrating sealers are about the same cost as the typical sealers available at Big Box Stores.
Our customers are often surprised when they discover that they won't have to pay any more for a high quality job than for a handyman or pool service guy who doesn't specialize in pavers and who will just roll on a xylene or polymer acrylic sealer after a "who-knows-what-kind" of cleaning job.
If you trust us to do your job, we promise to get it done at a fair and competitive price, and you can expect top quality service.
We recommend NOT using any kind of film-forming sealer on Southwest Florida pavers. Your pavers need to breath (allow normal evaporation through the surface of the pavers). Xylene sealers (the type most often sold and used locally) will eventually turn grey or milky. It's the same with polymer acrylic sealers, water-based sealers and urethane sealers (also film-formers).
They will all cause long-term problems of "greying." If you drive around your neighborhood, you will notice driveways that have a grey caste. You will not have a graying problem if Paver Pros does your job.
On a related note, we often recondition driveways and pool decks that have already gone grey and milky. More often than not we are able to recondition a driveway or deck simply by using our normal cleaning and sealing method. We are often able to return the normal color of your pavers and not charge any more than our normal rate.
We recommend NOT sanding between your pavers with either regular sand or polymeric (hardening) sand, as sand is the environment that moss thrives in. Polymeric sanding may look great for a few months, but soon will have black or green moss between your pavers. It's not worth it.
We recommend NOT cleaning your pavers with chlorine unless you use a mixture of at least half water and rinse almost immediately with plenty of water. Remember to protect your lawn and your shrubs.
NEVER use muratic acid on pavers unless you are an experienced professional and know what you are doing. Muratic acid pits paver surfaces and the damage is permanent.
NEVER do automobile or golf cart maintenance on a paver surface. Battery acid burns are all too common on driveways. DO NOT spray tire cleaning aerosols around pavers. They contain silicone sealer and it may not come off.
Every paver clean and seal job we do includes a 1 Year Warranty, a copy of which is included with your price quote.
