Below we’ll take a look at what causes brick paving stones to age, sink, crack and lose their original aesthetics, while giving some tips on how best to maintain your brick-paved pool deck, driveway or patio.
There are many factors that contribute to aging brick pavers. As pavers age, they experience a variety of changes. Some lower-quality pavers may look old and worn-out after just a year, while others may last for many years before signs of wear start to appear. We’ve rejuvenated pavers that are ~20 years old and, while they may not always come out brand new, they come extremely close!
Below are some of the factors that contribute to brick pavers aging:
When the joints between your pavers are not properly locked in with sand and a professional paver sealer, rainwater is able to seep between them, running beneath the pavers to saturate the ground beneath. Over time this washes out the substrate (typically sand) and diminishes the stability of your pavers, causing them to sink.
What’s more, as brick pavers sink they are prone to cracking or breaking apart.
This is particularly troublesome on driveways, where parked vehicles apply continuous weight in specific spots beneath the tires. If the paver joints are not properly sealed, with time they can and will begin to sink, resulting in an unsightly appearance at the entrance to your home and reducing the value of your house.
When paver joints are properly sealed, the weight (e.g. from vehicle tires) is spread out over a larger area, resulting in much greater stability as the burden is shared.
Brick paver stones that are under pressure tend to crack over time. Pressure occurs when water accumulates beneath the stones, and in colder climates can also be due to frost heave (where repeated freezing causes soil gradually to expand). Cracks can cause brick pavements to be unstable, leading them to become uneven and hard-to-walk on.
Additionally, cracks allow weeds and mosses to grow between brick pavers. This is particularly bothersome in Florida, where the hot and humid climate provides the perfect environment for weeds to thrive.
If left untreated for some time, brick paving stones can completely lose their aesthetics. Conditions such as areas of high moisture build-up can result in the development of green and black mold and algae, which make brick pavements look dirty and unappealing.
Thankfully, this can be treated. The first stage of our paver cleaning and sealing process is to apply an algae-busting chlorine rinse, which is a 5:1 water-chlorine mixture sprayed over the entire surface to be treated in order to kill any living spores or vegetation (weeds) to leave the pavers ‘sterilized’ before we sand and seal.
It should be noted that this is not a permanent solution; areas susceptible to heavy water build-up (e.g. low spots under pool screen enclosures) may still see some organic growth after sealing. However, this is on top of the sealant and can be removed with a garden hose and some light scrubbing with a yard brush. We highly recommend cleaning and maintaining your pavers at least once a year to keep them looking fabulous!
This is another common issue for any home or business owner that has paved areas such as a pool deck, driveway or patio close to large, mature trees.
Over time, as the roots from the trees proliferate and take hold in the surrounding area, the more superficial ones can find their way underneath your pavers.
Inevitably, the strength of the roots and the need of the tree for water is so great that they will push the pavers up, not only making them look unsightly but creating a dangerous trip hazard, especially for homes with children or elderly residents.
Expert Paver Sealers of Tampa encounters this problem all the time, and we simply take out the pavers, cut out the nuisance roots and replace the stones, leaving them as even as the day they were installed.
The use of brick paver sealers can give brick paving stones a nice sheen that will help protect the brick from stains and wear and tear associated with exposure to harsh weather conditions such as rain, snow, wind and more.
The application of brick paver sealers also acts as a barrier that helps to inhibit weed growth between pavers, which can be especially frustrating in the Florida climate. Please note that paver sealing alone is not a permanent solution; airborne weed spores can still land and grow from the sealed joints, but are far easier to remove than those growing from out of the substrate.
This same paver sealing barrier is also effective in inhibiting the formation of pest habitats such as ant nests. Any Florida homeowner will tell you that inadvertently standing in a fire ant nest and getting bitten is an extremely unpleasant and painful experience, with effects that can last for days. Sealing pavers or ‘paver sealing’ – and more importantly, locking in joint sand between your pavers – will provide some much-needed relief from these unfortunate encounters.
Expert Paver Sealers of Tampa recommends pressure washing brick pavers every year (or power washing), as well as applying one coat of sealer where necessary to maintain beautiful aesthetics and lasting durability. If you have brick pavers in your home, paver sealing and paver restoration are an essential part of your annual maintenance.
