Giving Your Pavers a Fall Checkup
Fall is here, and it is the perfect time to give your pavers an annual fall checkup. Paving stones are designed to be long lasting and durable, but it is still wise to inspect and maintain them several times a year. In Orange County pavers are used as a surface for many outdoor living rooms and kitchens. While the weather is comfortable year round, many homeowners use their outdoor spaces differently in the fall and winter than in the summer. Outdoor heaters and fire pits come out while pool toys are put away. Care for your pavers as part of the transition process.
Here are recommendations from the Go Pavers team for giving your pavers their fall checkup:
- Clean your paving stones. If you used paver sealer all you need to do is sweep and spray them down with water. If you didn’t use paver sealer and have stains, clean them with a simple solution of detergent and water.
- Inspect pavers to see if any are loose. If your paving stones are too wiggly, or appear to be loosening, you can apply more sand filler in between the pavers. Sand filler helps to hold them in place but may erode over time. You also want to make sure that it is sand in between the gaps – not dirt. Dirt can cause moss to grow.
- Check for any cracks or chips. Many of the paving stones we sell have a lifetime warranty, like the Mega Lafitt by Belgard. If you have any cracks or chips let us know and we can check the warranty for you. If any need to be replaced, we can do this quickly without disturbing the rest of your driveway or patio pavers. Pavers can be replaced in a way that isn’t noticeable, so your patio pavers always look brand new.
- Paver Sealer. If you want to decrease your pavers maintenance, and keep them looking new longer, use paver sealer. It makes pavers easy to clean and prevents grass from growing in between the pavers. It will also help keep bugs away next summer.
