Yes! Sealing your pavers in Atlanta, GA is the most beneficial thing you can do to ensure they last longer, ward off stains and maintain their beauty. If you choose not to seal your pavers they may suffer the effects of erosion, weed growth, mold or mildew build up, discoloration, and can become loose. Paver sealant is an important maintenance tool to keep Georgia paver patios, walkways, driveways and pool decks looking as beautiful as they day they were installed.
A high quality sealer can also keep your pavers cleaner. When pavers are sealed, the sealer fills up the pores of the pavers making any dirt that hits the surface stay on the surface and not penetrate the paver. Ideal for concrete and clay pavers, flat and stamped concrete, or natural and manufactured stone in Atlanta, Georgia. Also suitable for masonry, retaining walls, porous or unglazed tile and terrazzo.
Do all paver sealant brands offer the same basic protection?
There are definitely some poor paver sealing products on the market. Don’t trust the fact that you bought it at a big box store or that it’s a high-profile brand. Just because a brand is good at one product category (like paint) doesn’t mean they are the best in another. Georgia Paver Restoration recommends a two-part water reducible, clear, urethane sealer. Our commercial grade two-part, urethane sealer sealer is made for the Georgia climate! Our paver and stone sealer is specially formulated with an antifungal designed to help inhibit the growth of mold, moss and algae on the sealer film when applied to horizontal or vertical surfaces. It deeply enhances with an ultra-wet look, providing ultimate surface protection and optimal joint sand stabilization.

Pavers should be resealed every 3 to 5 years on average. You will know when your pavers need to be resealed because water will stop beading on the surface and the sheen will diminish. In addition, you may notice weeds starting to grow in between joints and the pavers may start to lose their color.
