When doing obligatory yard work and upkeep it’s important not to neglect your pavers.  It’s an unbelievably important accent to your property and home, and most importantly one of the most expensive.  Avoid having to pay ridiculous amounts of money to have your pavers ripped up and reinstalled.  Part of the whole reason why you decided to go with pavers was the aesthetic value.  How valuable are your pavers really as they collect dirt, stains, chips, and improper maintenance?

One of the only things worse than trying to maintain your pavers, is not taking the necessary amount of time to find what the best products are for your specific type.  Don’t make the mistake of assuming in this area as it would become a very expensive mistake!

Luckily, local pavers maintenance professionals at NJ Paver Restorations put together this quick list of tips to get you in the right direction with your pavers.

Breathable and non-breathable sealants. Both solutions are used in different paver situations.  Check with the paver company that installed your patio, porch, or driveway to see what they recommend.  Adhering a non-breathable sealant on pavers that absorb moisture can cause a landslide of problems in the end.

Keep an eye out.  Make sure you take a moment of each day to inspect the pavers that have the most traffic.  Look out for any signs of flashing, scratches, and pavers becoming loose.  Catching it early can sometimes mean the difference between a cost effective cleanup and an expensive re-install.

Prepare for the seasons accordingly.  Each season puts your pavers through a gauntlet of harsh elements from battering rain to golf ball sized hail.  There are various sealants and materials that you can acquire that will assist you with paver maintenance specifically made for different seasons. In order to prolong the life of your pavers prepare ahead of time and save yourself a good amount of money.
