Does your old paver walkway, patio, or driveway need a spruce up? Perhaps there are weeds growing between the pavers, or an insect problem. Maybe some of the pavers had to be dug up for an underground repair.
Whatever the need, Gateway can provide maintenance services for your old paver installation:
- Stain Removal
When the original installation is performed properly, using the correct materials, a paver installation should last for many years. That's why Gateway uses a special Polymeric sand for all of our walkway, patio, driveway, and parking lot installations. This sand is swept in dry like ordinary sand and then dampened during a three spray application with a garden hose. The sand bonds together and to the rough edge of the paver joint forming what is known as a "stabilized joint". As a result, there is no ant penetration, no random weed growth, and a solid stable joint.
For rejointing projects, a pressure washing of the old jointing material out of the paver joints and replacing with Polymeric jointing sand will restore the life of your installation.
Stains can also be removed through a pressure washing, and then sealing is a must for the long term life of a paver.
Gateway can advise you on the best approach for refurbishing your old installations and making them look like new. Contact Gateway today for a free Hardscape Maintenance consultation.
