DO I NEED TO USE CLEANERS & SEALERS ?
The decision your faced regarding the use of cleaners & sealers is equally important with choosing the right product for your home. You have chosen either Basalt & Bluestone, Granite, Brick & Clay Pavers, Concrete Pavers & Retaining Walls, Natural Stone Cladding or Outdoor Tiles and now its time to make a decision whether to seal and protect your pride and joy from those nasty stains.
While it’s not necessary for any structural or performance reasons, we do recommend that you seal your pavers to protect your investment. Sealing your pavers will ensure they look great and remain that way for years to come. The last thing you want is for your brand new paved area to be stained from the BBQ, spilt drinks, tannin stains or anything else your area may be subject to. These types of stains can be tough to remove but easier to maintain at low cost when the surface is sealed.
While there are many sealers in the market today they are essentially of two types, penetrating and wet look. Penetrating sealers are designed to seal the pavement and provide a water repelling coat that doesn’t change the appearance or colour of the paver. In contrast, wet look sealers will alter the colour of your pavement, literally making it look wet. This can enhance the original colour, but really is a personal preference and may affect the slip resistance factor of the paver.
We provide excellent cleaners ranging from routine cleaners for sealed surfaces to heavy duty cleaners for post installation and stain removal cleaning.
