Long Lasting Results We can re-sand and seal the pavers, this protects against future weed & moss growth by setting the sand hard between the joints. It also prevents the sand from simply washing away in the rain. Sealing with our colour enhancing sealer brings back some of the faded colour as well as giving it UV protection to slow down future colour loss preventing your drive from looking old and washed out.
Re-coating / Restoration If your pavers have lost all their colour they have when new we can re-coat with coloured sealer to give your drive that new look again.

How we renewed a paved drive to leave it clean, weed free, and protected for years to come.
We had a call from a customer asking if there was anything we could do with their paver driveway. It had been down for quite some years (they couldn’t remember exactly how long) and was now looking very tired. As well as being generally dirty and a bit of algae growth, the colours had started to fade, weeds and moss were growing in the joints and one or two pavers had even slipped out of place slightly. All these problems are common and I had a good idea what needed to be done so arranged a visit to inspect and confirm my initial thoughts and give a firm cost to put it right.
Obviously the first thing to do was to clean the area, which we did with our high capacity, petrol engine, pressure washer and various paver cleaning products. We also added some algae and lichen treatments to clean and remove the spores growing in the surface of the pavers.
When cleaning we deliberately spent a lot of time and care to remove the old sand between the pavers. This old sand had been half washed away and replaced with mud, dirt and dead moss creating a perfect place for weeds and moss to thrive. It also means the pavers are not held in place as well and can move or sink giving a wonky patch to the drive. By removing this mix of mud and sand we can replace it with new kiln dried sand blocking up the areas weeds grow and holding the pavers in place.
Once we had a clean drive with new kiln dried sand between the joints we needed to keep it like this so we sealed it with two coats of paver sealer. The sealer will protect against general dirt build up as well as algae and lichen growth in the porous surface. Designed to set the sand between the joints hard the sealer prevents the sand simply washing away with the rain. It colour enhances the pavers giving back some of their new colour and has inbuilt UV protection to prevent future colour loss.
Luckily this drive wasn’t in really bad condition and didn’t need our resurfacing treatments to look great again. We left a very happy customer, with a great drive that will last for years with just the simplest maintenance cleaning with nothing more than a brush and a hose to remove lose surface dirt in the future.
We are not the cheapest company and have never aimed to be, we are also not the most expensive. We offer high quality work at fair prices. We will provide you with a free fully inclusive and firm quote before work starts, we don’t hide any part of the price and just charge what we quoted for.
We might be able to give a ball park cost over the phone but really we need to complete an inspection visit to provide a firm price. This also allows us to properly understand what work needs to be done, the state of the surface we are working with as well as other particular conditions relative to working around your home.
This inspection and quote visit is free and you have no obligation to use us after. It will be carried out by an expert cleaner and not a pushy salesperson.
