Brick Maintenance and Repair

Poorly maintained brick drivewayMost people don’t realize that you have to maintain your new brick paver patio or driveway to make it last a lifetime. Basic maintenance should include power washing, re-sanding with polymeric sand and sealing every 3-5 years. The use of high quality polymeric sand is a must because it helps prevent weed sprouting, damages caused by insects and also prevent erosion due to climatic conditions, such as wind, rain and freezing temperatures. Brick sealer provides protection and ultimately extends the life of a hardscape installation. They also add a visual improvement to the hardscape by intensifying the color of the surface or by adding a sheen.

Cal & Shan’s can bring life back to that old brick paver or natural stone patio, walkway or driveway with our repair service. First we start by verifying that a proper base was originally installed. If there is and it meets our standards we will carefully pull up your existing pavers, check for proper grades and pitch, top dress with more gravel and bedding material, and finally reset your pavers with polymeric joint sand and add sealer to surface.
