Why do you seal Brick Pavers?

This is by far the most asked question that we receive regarding Brick Paver Patios, Driveways, Pool Areas, and Pathways.

The answer is:

  • Protection
  • Color Enhancement
  • Color Preservation
  • Joint Sand Loss.


Sealing your Brick Pavers will protect from spills and stains. While the sealer does not stop 100% penetration it will help "deep" penetration from oil spills, rust from water, dirt, grime, etc. making future cleanup easier!


Using a paver sealer will enhance the natural tones of your brick pavers with a "wet" look. This will darken the color similar to as if they were wet with water. The sealer will also add a shine to the pavers. The shine level is dependent on the porosity of the cement pavers but does come in a High Gloss, Semi-Gloss, and a Matte Finish.

Color Preservation

Sealing the brick pavers will protect the original color and appearance. If they are not sealed the pavers will dull and will look "pitted". This is a result of natural weathering and traffic.

Joint Sand Loss

Joint Sand loss from natural weathering, weeds, and insects is a common problem. Sealing your pavers can harden the sand and prevent this from occurring.

    We live in North Florida. How often should brick pavers be sealed. We used the Supreme Seal 25 acrylic sealer about 5 years ago on our concrete brick paver patio. Does it need to be resealed? Just pressure washed to clean it. Also, Should more paver sand be used to fill the cracks where the sand has washed away?

      Resealing every 2-3 years is normal. Pressure wash for prep. Add sand only if needed.

      No issues with using a solvent-based sealer. We sell 1000s of gallons a year for FL and they work great there!

    What about Travertine and Flagstone sealing.

      Wet look or gloss sealers will not work well for natural stone. Dries blotchy.

    Good morning. I sealed our patio brick pavers (purchased at Lowes) and they looked terrible. I wanted to enhance the natural tones of our brick pavers with a "wet" look. The sealer added little shine to the pavers and left them yellow with a lot of sand trapped in the material. I ended up spending hundreds of dollars to purchase a chemical to remove which took days and days using my powerwasher. The porosity of our cement pavers seems to be very high. What do you recommend?
