Benefits of Paving Sealants

Paving brick sealants are essential for preserving the beauty and durability of a paved surface. Whether it’s a driveway, patio, or walkway, applying a quality sealant offers numerous advantages that extend beyond simple protection. In this article, we will explore the various benefits of paving sealants.

Protection from Harsh Weather

The weather can affect your pavers, causing them to fade, crack, or discolour. On the other hand, sealing your pavers helps to prevent this damage by creating a barrier between the pavers and the elements.

Enhanced Durability

Sealing your pavers enhances the overall durability of your paved surface. The sealant helps reinforce the pavers, making them more resistance to cracking, chipping, or breaking. This increased durability can help extend the lifespan of your pavers, ultimately saving you those repair expenses in the long term.

Resistance to Stains from Oil, Grease, and Other Substances

Sealing your pavers provides resistance to stains from substances like oil, grease, and other liquids. Additionally, sealing your pavers creates a protective barrier that makes it easier to clean up spills before they have a chance to stain the surface.

Enhanced Colours

Pavers are available in a range of different colours, but over time, UV rays and the weather can cause them to fade. Therefore, sealing pavers can also help enhance the pavers natural colors.

Water Repulsion

Water can cause significant damage to pavers over time, leading to cracking and staining. Depending on your chosen sealer, sealing your pavers can also minimise water absorption.

Prevention of Insect & Pest Intrusion

Pavers that are not sealed can become an ideal habitat for insects and pests, which can quickly become a major bug infestation. One of the most significant benefits of sealing pavers is the prevention of insect and pest intrusion.

Stabilised Sand Between Your Pavers

On unsealed pavers, when it rains, the sand between the unsealed pavers can easily wash away or dislodge during pressure washing which leads to gaps between the pavers.

A paver sealer can act like a glue that helps keep the sand in place ensuring a level and stable surface.

Easier Cleaning & Maintenance

Pavers that are not sealed can be challenging to clean, as dirt and debris tend to become ingrained in the surface over years and seasons. Sealing your pavers can make cleaning easier as the surface becomes smoother and less porous. This makes it easier to sweep away dirt and debris, making power washing more effective.
