The Q&A Archives: Maintaining Paver Patio

Question: We just moved into a home with a beautiful paver patio. I am wondering what I should be doing to protect and preserve the paver surface.

Answer: Taking simple care of your paved patio is as simple as sweeping or hosing your patio on a regular basis. Occasionally you may need to power wash it to remove all of the grime and dirt.

It is also recommended that you seal your pavers after installation and every 2-3 years following that. The reason is that the sealer will help you to maintain the color and that "new look". Stains and spills will be so much easier to remove, ensuring that your patio will be aesthetically appealing for years to come. You can purchase sealer in the paint department of your local Home Depot and apply it with a roller or brush. I think sealing every 2-3 years keeps the pavers looking brand new. Enjoy your new home!
