Paver Care 101: Why Re-sanding & Sealing is the Secret Sauce to Paver Perfection


Hey, paver people! Are you ready to turn your walkway from “meh” to “marvelous”? At Hogwash Pressure Cleaning, we believe that a good pressure wash for your pavers is like a spa day for your backyard. But wait, there’s more! Let’s chat about the unsung heroes of paver maintenance: re-sanding and sealing. It’s not just about cleaning; it’s about caring. 

The Art of Re-sanding:

Think of your freshly cleaned pavers like a puzzle. Once they’re squeaky clean, the pieces might fit, but they need that extra ‘oomph’ to stay together. That’s where re-sanding comes in. It’s like the glue in a DIY project – you might not see it, but boy, does it hold everything together!

Re-sanding your pavers post-cleaning is crucial for:

Stability: Keeps pavers from playing musical chairs and shifting around.

Weed Prevention: It’s a green thumb’s dream, keeping those pesky weeds at bay.

Longevity: Helps your pavers stay younger for longer (if only it worked for us!).

To Seal or Not to Seal? That’s the Glossy Question:

Once your pavers are snug with new sand, it’s time to talk sealants. Matte or glossy? It’s like choosing between a classic suit or a shiny tuxedo for your pavers.

1. Matte Finish:

   – The Look: Gives a no-fuss, clean, and natural appearance. It’s the ‘jeans and a nice top’ of sealants.

   – The Feel: Offers a safer, non-slip surface – because no one likes a slippery situation.

   – Upkeep: Low-maintenance and forgiving, especially in high-traffic areas.

2. Glossy Finish:

   – The Look: Adds that wow-factor shine, making your pavers look like they’re ready for a night out.

   – The Feel: Stain-resistant and sleek, for when your pavers need to impress.

   – Upkeep: A bit more high-maintenance, but for that extra sparkle, it’s worth it.

Pro Tips for the Perfect Finish:

Here at Hogwash, we don’t just clean; we care. Applying the sealant is a bit like frosting a cake – it needs a steady hand and an eye for detail. And remember, regular upkeep makes your pavers’ beauty and durability last longer.
