Installation Process

In this basement we removed asbestos tiles that were glued down with liquid asphalt. The concrete floor was then grinded down to remove the tar and prepare the surface for the installation of the vapor barrier coating. Right after the first application of epoxy yellow vinyl, flakes were thrown widely in the wet epoxy and were left to stick and dry for the next 24 hours. The next step was to vacuum the loose vinyl flakes off the floor and lightly scrape the floor to flatten the surface. The final step was to apply a clear coat of the epoxy over the vinyl flakes. This gives the floor a smooth finish and covering the flakes prevents them from getting ripped off the floor. In this basement we did not apply any hardener coat over the epoxy because the floor is not used for vehicular traffic. In a garage floor or any vehicular trafficked area, a layer of urethane would need to be applied to harden the surface of the epoxy finish. This last process prolongs the wearing of the floor and also protects it from any UV light coming through the window and doors.

How often do pavers need to be resealed?

How often do pavers need to be resealed?It is important to wait at least a year before sealing concrete pavers from the date of installation. Concrete pavers have to cure and must go through a four-season cycle of weathering. This allows most of the lime from the paver’s surface to come out. After the cleaning and pressure washing process, all the lime from the surface gets removed and the color of the stones gets exposed, this allows the sealer to capture the best of the pavers and preserve it that way. The life of the sealer is contingent to how well it has been applied. Three to five years is recommended by most sealer manufactures, and usually people reseal the driveway and pavers that often. But what’s most important is that pavers are sealed right one time and even though the sheen will go away, or some dust my sit on the surface, the sealer that penetrated the surface of the pavers has created that will be present for many years preventing the pavers from edging.

Is it necessary to seal pavers and why

Best Long Island Paver Restoration CompanyIs it necessary to seal pavers and why

Yes! Concrete pavers should be sealed. Paving stones are manufactured with the highest quality cement, but cement is a corrosive material that wears under natural elements.
The sun, rain and cold, can easily wear the surface of pavers, and a good sealing job with the right sealing product, applied by a professional technician of sealing, will create a layer of protection over the paving stones making them water repellent and weather proof. This will protect the concrete surface from corrosion.
A good sealer penetrates the paver surface and stays there for many years, even if the look of the sealer goes away, the color and texture of the pavers will stay new.
