We have started our 2020 cleaning and sealing season rejuvenating the Gappsi showroom parking lot in Smithtown NY located in Suffolk County on Long Island. We are using hot water on low pressure and surface cleaner to remove dirt and residue of oil and other debris collected in the crevices of the pavers surface. We are also using a rotary wand to loosen the dirt collected in between the joints of the pavers. This is a large parking lot built with Nicolock pavers, and the colors of the paving stones are still very nice even after 15 years of being exposed to the elements and vehicular traffic. Nicolock manufactures high-quality concrete products that withstand the test of time. But as any other concrete products, concrete is corrosive and it weathers when exposed to the elements like the Sun’s heat, the rain and snow, and also to the calcium chloride and ice melters used during freezing times. After completing the cleaning of the entire paver parking lot, we filled the pavers joints with haze-free polymeric sand and vibrated it with a mechanical plate compactors to allow the sand to settle in and completely fill the joints. We spray water on the pavers to allow the sand to get wet, letting the water saturate the sand all the way through the bottom of the joint, and also wash off the pavers surface.
The polymeric sand comes in a few different colors, but most commonly used is beige or gray. It really doesn’t matter what color you use because over time it weathers and it will eventually turn into a brownish-gray color. The polymeric sand is a combination of medium-crushed natural sand, that is combined with color and a polymer component. It is activated when in contact with water to make it glue and eventually harden. This makes better for the pavers’ stability, makes it harder for ants to dig and nest in between the paver joints, and also makes it harder for weeds to grow through.
The next process is the installation of the sealer. We use high-quality urethane-water based sealers, which are environmentally safe and won’t harm plants, pets, or humans. It penetrates the surface of the pavers and creates a coating to protect the pavers from the elements. It also brings out and deepens the colors. Our sealer won’t yellow, and it will create a consistent tone on the pavers during wet and or dry circumstances. We allow the sealer to cure for at least 3 days before driving on it, and depending on the temperature, it could be long for the sealer to totally cure.

Gappsi installed this gunite pool in Roslyn Heights Nassau county on Long Island. That is 25×60 with an elevated spa that spills over into the pool on all four sides. You have a step down to the sundeck area with 12 inches of water on the sundeck for people to put chairs, then they can enter the spa. Then we have steps to go to the shallow area of the pool with a bench in front of the spa. The deepest part of the pool is just 5ft. It’s going to be a walkable pool. In the back we have a raised area with sheer descends coming out of it. We are going to start filling in the pool tomorrow with water after we acid wash it. We are using Tahoe-blue diamond bright as a finish for the pool shell, Indiana limestone for the coping and the spa and six inches waterline porcelain tiles under the coping. The guys are finishing smoothing out the last details. We put an inlay of tiles with the design of dolphins swimming around a ball. This is gappsi’s latest project about to be finished.
