We hope this story about our project gives you a better idea of how we can make your outdoor living space just the way you want it! If you’ve had trouble with your pavers before, check out this great result from a project we finished in the Yankee Trace Golf Course Community in Centerville, Ohio.
Lots of our clients come to us with paver problems. Sometimes, the company they hired before, or even the homeowner themselves, tried to fix things without knowing how. We appreciate the effort, but it can turn into a big problem. If the wrong sand and sealer are used, or if a good product is put on the wrong way, it can be really bad. Luckily, our technicians know what to do in these situations. We want to help anyone going through this and find a good solution.
Before: Notice The White Film From Failed Sealer
Believe it or not, this client wanted their pavers to have dark reds, blues, and grays when they were installed. They thought it was impossible to get them back to that. Most people would agree, but we’ve seen this situation before. The sealer used before turned white and covered up the true beauty of the patio.
Now, we’ve used an eco-friendly stripping agent on the pavers. We wait a bit for it to work and then use steam to clean every inch. Our technicians are trained for this, and they really enjoy seeing the before-and-after difference. To make sure our sealer works well, it’s important to get rid of as much old sealer as possible.
During: We’ve Started The Stripping Process
We’re halfway through the stripping process, and you can already see a big difference in color. This is just the start of how great the final result will look. After cleaning everything, our technician pointed out to the homeowner that their plastic edging around the edges was coming loose from the ground and popping up above the pavers. It’s never too late to add important structural products. And so, after agreeing to a small extra cost, we removed the plastic edging and put in our concrete paver edging.
Now, here’s the final result right after sealing. We couldn’t get the perfect after picture before leaving the project because the sealer was still drying, but our customer was so happy that she offered to send a picture from her patio door once the sealant had dried the next day. Here’s the amazing outcome of the patio.
