DIY Maintenance Questions

Why can’t I clean and repair my own patio?

You certainly could. But we have the tools and expertise necessary to make your patio/hardscape as good as the day it was installed. And we can do it right, in a just a fraction of the time. Plus, wouldn’t you rather enjoy your patio instead of working on it?

Can I power wash my pavers?

We do not recommend power washing your pavers. The harsh spray can erode the pavers and loosen the binding between pavers.

Do de-icing products damage pavers?

When used in proper amounts, de-icing agents should not damage your pavers. However, they may accelerate wear on some pavers and it is important to carefully follow instructions to protect against using too much.

How long should pavers last?

When properly installed and maintained regularly, paver should last 25-50 years.

My patio/hardscape installation is brand new. When should I consider having Paver Rescue clean, repair and seal it?

A new patio should be good for two years. After this, there will definitely be signs of wear; weeds may appear between cracks, pavers may settle, insects may appear. We’d recommend after your second year, giving the experts a call to make it new again.

How long does the typical Paver Rescue process take?

Typically, it’s a three-day process. Day one we clean your brick/paver areas with a pressure wash. Day two is spent doing repairs, as needed, to edging or any areas that have settled over time. The third day we sand, stabilize and, most importantly, seal the entire area.

Importance of Maintenance Questions

Why is sealing an important part? Can’t you just clean, repair and sand?

Sealing protects your investment, by stabilizing the sand in the joints in addition to protecting your installation from stains, weeds and insect infestations.

Is this a yearly process?

No, but we recommend an ongoing process. We offer a three-year maintenance agreement ensuring you don’t have to maintain your installation for those three years. Year one, we do the complete clean, sand and seal. Year two, we return to inspect and do any needed sealer touchups. In year 3, we do a light cleaning and again touch up the sealant.

What can I do to prevent staining?

Sealing is crucial for the beauty and strength of your pavers. Sealing helps protect against staining, UV rays, and harsh weather conditions. Without maintaining sealers on your pavers, you run the risk of staining and fading.

How long until we can use our patio/driveway after the process?

To safely ensure the sealant has dried properly, you’ll need to wait 24 hours after we’re done.

When is an ideal time to have Paver Rescue work on my patio repairs?

From early spring to late fall is the ideal time to clean, repair and seal. Basically, when the weather is nice, we can do the work. Once it starts to freeze, we recommend waiting until early spring.

When are pavers past the point of rescuing?

We can repair and restore most pavers and patios, but we will conduct an evaluation before any repairs are made to determine the best course of action.
