Why Hire Us?
You’ll find that we’re not your typical South Florida company when it comes to customer service, follow-through and attention to detail. That’s because we’re from the Midwest. In the Midwest, we’re known for providing impeccable service and quality. That’s because in the Midwest, that’s demanded from the client and clients are willing to pay more for it. We have curtailed who we are to take extra special care to a smaller group of clients, vs. half-heartedly servicing a larger group.
Unique Unharmful Technique
Our Paver Cleaning and Paver Sealing process is unlike any you’ll see here in South Florida primarily due to our paver steam cleaning process that enables us to achieve the highest level of clean without the use of harmful chemicals.
We’re quick to return your phone call both before the sale and if you have a question or concern after the job is complete. We specialize in the restoration of any exterior natural stone or paver surface.
In addition to being fanatics who are obsessed with restoring the beauty of concrete and brick pavers, we’re paver installers. In fact, at least one member of every Perfect Paver Co crew has been installing pavers for 10 years or more before we moved them over to our restoration division. Our sister installation company, Two Brothers Brick Paving, specializes in very high-end residential outdoor living installations and large scale commercial paver installations.
Both companies have the same owner and he is actively involved in both companies on a day-to-day basis. What this means for you is, we know how to take great care of your pavers and we know what’s best – this also comes in handy when repairs are necessary.
All of our equipment is truck or trailer mounted. We don’t use equipment that could be transported in the back of a pick up truck like most handymen and pressure washing companies.
When we started Perfect Paver Co, we wanted to be the best. So we’ve always used the best equipment, sealers and people to help us get there.
We have paver and natural stone sealers designed to both leave a natural look as well as an enhanced look. We do not offer it, nor do we recommend high-gloss paver sealers in Florida. These sealers trap moisture in the paver and become very problematic.
We’re looking at the entire paver system to make improvements. This includes:
Once we take all of these items in to consideration, we create a proposal specific for your project on how we recommend bringing your pavers or natural stone back to life.
Unlike traditional cold water pressure washing of pavers, our steam cleaning process is able to achieve an unbelievable clean without the use of harsh chemicals. In addition, the steam will kill and remove black mold and mildew on contact vs. cold water which may remove the black stain from the surface but leaves the spore still alive.

Why seal my pavers or natural stone?
This is a great question, and one we feel isn’t asked enough. Most people seal their pavers and natural stone, but do you know why? Each type of exterior surface needs maintained and protected in its own unique way and for its own unique reasons. Too often, we see companies apply a one-size-fits all technique to all surfaces. Click your paver type below to learn more about our unique process and why you should seal.
Most paver driveways and paver pool decks that you’ll see in Florida are made from concrete. When these pavers are made, the manufacturer mixes concrete with color pigments to achieve the color of the paver. Once these pavers are installed, they are exposed to the sun’s UV rays, acid in rain, impact from rain, salt in the air and in salt water pools, traffic, etc.
The sun’s rays will deteriorate the color pigment in the paver causing them to slowly loose their color. The other elements cause a breakdown of the finer cement material on the surface of the paver exposing the rocks in the concrete mix. These rocks don’t accept the color pigment during the manufacturing process, so they will be their natural color and not the color of the paver.
In addition to sealing, we strongly suggest keeping the joints of concrete pavers filled with sand. These joints, if not filled with sand, allow the pavers to shift and move. The sand installed during original installation becomes displaced and the empty joint fills up with organic material creating the perfect conditions for mold and other types of vegetation to germinate and thrive.
To combat this, our process on concrete pavers includes washing out the organic build up and sand from the joints and replacing it with our Polymeric Sand Grout. This polymeric sand will lock itself in the joints preventing erosion of both the sand joint and the sand bed beneath the pavers which will help prevent the pavers from shifting. It will also allow proper maintenance to be done on the pavers without washing out loose sand.
Why Seal Travertine, Limestone and Natural Stone Pavers
Unlike concrete pavers, travertine and limestone pavers are natural. No color pigment has been used to achieve their color, so you will never have to worry about color loss from natural stone. However, rain and salt in the air and in salt water pools will deteriorate travertine and limestone pavers over time. By sealing the travertine, this will help prevent this from happening. Properly protected, these types of materials will outlive the home. Unprotected when exposed to these elements, expect them to last as long as man made products.
Equally as important as sealing travertine, limestone and other natural stones is keeping the sand material locked in the joints or gaps between each stone. This is assuming these stones were sand set and not mortar set. On sand set natural stone installations, the sand must be installed in the joints for several reasons. A few are: 1. to create a cushion from one stone to the next to help minimize chipping, 2. Achieve friction between each stone so that the stones move up and down as one and not independent of each other causing unevenness, 3. The sand in the joints prevents heavy rains and cleaning from washing out and eroding the sand bed beneath the pavers. This is the leading cause to unevenness between one stone to the next. We see it often where a client has a travertine pool deck full of uneven stones. The thing they all have in common is, the joints are empty from frequent pressure washing or neglect. 4. When the joints are empty, they are prone to fill up with airborne organic material that blows across the stones and begins to collect. This organic material turns the gaps between your stones in to a mold and vegetation breading ground.
To combat all of this, our process on natural stone includes washing out the organic build up and sand from the joints and replacing it with our Polymeric Sand Grout which will lock itself in the joints preventing erosion of both the sand joint and the sand bed beneath the pavers.
The picture below will show you unevenness/settling in travertine pavers as well as deterioration caused by salt water in the pool.
Although Chicago Brick and Clay Pavers are man made, their color is achieved in a completely different manor. No pigments are used. Instead, when these brick are made the color is determined by the clay used to make the paver and by how hot and how long the pavers are cooked in the kiln. These types of pavers will not loose their colors. However, similar to natural stone, they can deteriorate from salt in the air and in salt water pools. Therefore, they need to be protected when installed when these elements exist. Brick are very porous, so they can often store a lot of moisture. This constant damp environment can lead to major black mold growth. Sealing pavers with a water repellant type sealer will stop the penetration of water in to the paver which will dramatically reduce these issues.
In addition to sealing, we strongly suggest keeping the joints of Chicago Brick filled with sand. Due to the inconsistency in size of the Chicago Brick, there are almost always lager gaps/joints between each stone than other types of pavers. These joints, if not filled with sand, allow the pavers to shift and move. Overtime, this can lead to major issues. To combat this, our process on Chicago Brick includes washing out the organic build up and sand from the joints and replacing it with our Polymeric Sand Grout. This polymeric sand will lock itself in the joints preventing erosion of both the sand joint and the sand bed beneath the pavers which will help prevent the pavers from shifting.
The picture below shows how bad mold will get on Chicago Brick. Notice in the after picture our Polymeric Sand Grout looks like the pavers had been grouted or mortared together.
What Our Clients Say
Awesome Professional service my pavers look totally awesome and had a very good experience with Jake and Matt
Very happy with their work from. Sean and Brandon did a great job cleaning and sealing over 3K sq feet of driveway pavers and travertine pool deck. There was a slight issue afterwards and Sean came back out with Joey to take care of it.
