How to Maintain Your Paver Surface

Posted in Paver Driveways

One of the many benefits of using stone pavers for your pool deck, driveway or patio is the low amount of maintenance needed. Unlike many other paved surfaces, pavers are simple and easy to keep looking great for many years. However, although maintenance is low, caring for your pavers can make them look like new and last even longer. Here are a few maintenance tips to care for your stone pavers.

  • Cleaning. Stone pavers are simple and easy to keep clean. Most can be cleaned with plain water from a hose or pressure washed on a low setting. If there are any stains, use a mild detergent and scour the spots with a brush, then rinse clean.
  • Edging and weed control. If there are gaps in or around your paved surface, you may need to do occasion weed control to keep it looking neat. Pull any weeds, edge the outside area and treat to keep weeds at bay.
  • If erosion occurs under your paved area, some pavers can settle or heave up to make an unlevel surface. While a few pavers may need to be removed, this is another benefit of pavers versus a solid surface. Repairs are less expensive since the entire surface is not usually affected.
  • Repairs. Replace any pavers that are cracked or chipped. Your local paving company can quickly repair broken pavers to keep your patio, driveway or pool deck looking like new.

Stone paver driveways, patios and pool decks can last for decades if maintained. Keep your pavers clean and well cared for to protect your investment into your home. Scheduling annual maintenance through your paving contractor can ensure your surface is kept in great shape and gets the ongoing care it needs.
