Top 5 Paver Sealing Regrets

Don’t Make These Costly Mistakes When Sealing Your Pavers

Every week, as I sit down with frustrated clients who have made mistakes in choosing their contractor, I witness firsthand the disastrous and expensive results they face. They often ask me, “How could we have avoided these mistakes?” That’s why I wanted to share with you my take on the top 5 regrets customers have when it comes to protecting and sealing their hardscape surfaces.

1. Opting for the Cheapest Option

Picture this: You’re excited about sealing your pavers, eager to enhance your outdoor space and add value to your home. You come across a too-good-to-be-true deal from a contractor promising to seal your pavers at a fraction of the cost. You think you’re saving money, but what you don’t realize is that you’re sacrificing quality. I’ve seen it time and time again – homeowners who opt for the cheapest option end up spending more in the long run to fix the subpar results.

  1. Hiring Inexperienced Contractors

I remember a client who hired a contractor without specialized expertise in paver sealing. They thought they were getting a great deal, but what they got was a botched sealing job that left their pavers looking worse than before. The contractor lacked the necessary skills and knowledge to properly apply the sealant, leading to uneven coverage and unsightly failed sealer. It was a costly mistake that could have been avoided by choosing a reputable company with a proven track record of success.

  1. Attempting Do It Yourself Sealing

We all love a good DIY project, but when it comes to sealing your pavers, it’s best to leave it to the professionals. I’ve had clients who attempted to seal their pavers themselves, only to end up with a mess on their hands. Without the proper equipment, materials, and expertise, DIY sealing attempts often result in ineffective protection and potential damage to your pavers. Trust me, it’s not worth the risk.

  1. Skipping Research on Contractors

I once had a client who didn’t bother to research their contractor before hiring them. They assumed all contractors were the same and went with the first one they found. Big mistake. The contractor turned out to be unreliable and unprofessional, leaving the client with poor workmanship and unmet expectations. It was a hard lesson learned – one that could have been avoided with a little bit of research and due diligence. This industry is full of fly by night, one man sole proprietors. With a low bar to entry many companies come and go each year leaving a wake of damaged pavers in their path.

Fake Reviews

Fake reviews and scammers are ready to take your money and destroy the look of your pavers. Avoid this nightmare with thorough vetting of your contractor.

  1. Neglecting Warranty Maintenance

Finally, there’s the issue of neglecting warranty maintenance. I can’t stress this enough – regular cleaning and resealing are essential to maintain the integrity of your pavers and uphold warranty coverage. I’ve seen homeowners neglect maintenance, only to find themselves facing costly damages down the line. Don’t let laziness or forgetfulness cost you in the long run – prioritize maintenance and protect your investment.

Avoiding Paver Sealing Regrets

When it comes to sealing your pavers, the choices you make today can have a significant impact on the future of your outdoor space. As someone who has seen the consequences of poor decisions firsthand, I urge you to learn from the mistakes of others and avoid these common pitfalls.
