Pavilion built in Dix Hills/Huntington Station NY by Gappsi. A complete outdoor living area covered under an elegant pavilion that incorporates a fireplace with a tv, a bar area, and a sitting area. Fiorito Travertine wall veneers and Moca French pattern travertine pavers were used for the floor. Stone piers are built to support the Azek columns and all trim and molding work were also done with Azek.
Backyard designed by Giuseppe Abbrancati and installed by Gappsi in Melville, Long Island NY. The free formed vinyl lined swimming pool was built with a 5 ft deep end to accommodate a twist slide. The pool patio and raised patio were paved with Nicolock stone ridge oyster blend and inlays of tumbled borders with 8’x12′ charcoal bullnose coping. An outdoor kitchen and bar set up were built under a pavilion, and the waterfall and fireplace area was also built with Nicolock mini-colonial wall system.
Yes! All concrete and paver surfaces should be cleaned before applying any sealer coating. It is very important that the surface is clean because any stains or materials that get trapped under the sealer will not be able to be cleaned after it’s sealed. Pressure washing pavers is just as important as sealing it.
Using the wrong pressure washing tools could also hurt the pavers. A pressure washer with the wrong nozzle could mark or wear the pavers. The best recommended tool is a high volume, low pressure, hot water pressure washer. The hot water cleans the pavers and prepares the surface for the best result sealing job.
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.
