Paver Stripping and Restoration

Paver Stripping and Restoration for brick, concrete and travertine pavers

Pro Pressure Clean and Seal specializes in Paver Stripping and Restoration of paver pool decks and driveways. That means chemically removing old ugly paver sealer that was improperly applied by another contractor or the homeowner. The big box stores sell brands that are easy to use for the average DIYer, but with little or no instruction on the proper preparation of the surface. Often these sealers just are not very good and don’t hold up, or worse, make the pavers look terrible. Even a good quality paver sealer can be applied badly by an untrained person. But more often than not we get called to look at some pavers that another paver sealing contractor sealed. Sometimes it was the paver installer. Other times it was the painter who added it with the house painting. Other times it was Joe handyman or the lawn service. (I once saw a plumber that advertised paver sealing.) Every one wants the extra business so they sell a service that they have no experience in. The results can be seen in these pictures:

So what to do when your pavers turn white?

You can wait it out until it dissapears, usually 5-10 years. Yeah I know this isn’t a very attractive option. But the alternate is to call us. We can make your pavers look like you wanted them to when you installed them. Before you call us though, please understand this is a very involved process and is not cheap. Prices range from $2.00/sf to $4.00/sf depending on size and difficulty.
