What we can offer your home or business
The services we offer at Brick and Stone Sealing Specialists never extend beyond our ability to provide the best possible product available. The following is a list of services that we may offer to your home or business.
Cleaning - the most essential step to all projects. All of our projects come with a free sidewalk and road gutter cleaning. We may also choose to include other small pressure washing freebies. After our sealant is applied and allowed to fully dry it is near impossible to remove any stains or filth left behind. That is why this is the longest and most labor intensive portion of any job.
We have an array of chemicals and years of experience that assist us in removing nearly all stains completely.
Sealing - a must for most concrete, paver, and natural stone surfaces
Reasons for sealing
- Protects your investment!
- Maintains structual rigidity of surface so pavers dont shift or become loose
- Protects from harmful UV and rain damage which can wear away color and expose aggregate
- Prevents stain penetration and tire markings
- Resists mold, mildew and algae
- Inhibits weed growth
- Easy maintenance
- Gives your pavers a clean, finished look without making it slippery
Below is a description of the sealing or painting options we can offer your surface.
|Sealing Menu||Natural Luster Little to no color change||Wet look A half Natural Luster half Super Wet mix||Super Wet Our most popular option will make surface always look wet||Other Options We have solutions for nearly all concrete and stone surfaces||Concrete - Most outdoor concrete should be sealed. Concrete has the tendency to harbor algae growth and is very susceptible to staining. Sealing or painting is the best option to protect porous concretes.||When the natural look is applied to concrete it offers long term protection without altering the overall look.||A half natural luster half super wet mixture gives this surface a little sheen while still maintaining the original look.||The most dramatic color change will make the concrete look as it does when it is wet, complete with color darkening and sheen.||Painting is also available for most concrete surfaces. Ask for more info.|
|Pavers - Sealing all pavers is highly recommended. All concrete pavers will wear rapidly if exposed to weathering. Clay pavers do not wear rapidly but will still benefit from color change, joint stabilization, and stain protection.||Does not change the color very much and there is little to no sheen depending on the paver type, but still offers the joint stabilization and paver protection of sealant.||This provides joint stabilization and paver protection while offering a slight color change we call matte.||Our most popular option! This darkens the pavers and gives the surface a wet look. The degree of sheen can be varied depending on the amount of water mixed in with sealant. Ask for more info.||If your surface has been previously sealed using an oil based or water based product we can offer to strip the surface. This option is highly labor intensive and pricing will be variable depending on job.|
|Travertine - An all natural stone that is highly durable and resistant to UV weathering. Therefore it does not need protection from weather though it is still recommended because of its barrier against stains and joint stabilization properties.||No color change but still offers stain protection, weed and algae protection, and joint stabilization.||Offers stain protection, algae and weed protection, joint stabilization, and a slight sheen we call matte||Can vary from slight to heavy sheen. Protects against all stains, prevents algae and weed growth, and also stabilizes joints.||None recommended.|
|Natural Stone - Natural stone is not very porous and therefore does not absorb our product as well. We can still offer sealing but cannot warranty it. There will still be weather and stain protection but it can wear faster, depending on conditions.||No color change but still protects against weathering, algae, mold, rust, and efflorescence.||A very slight sheen as well as protection against weathering, algae, mold, rust, and efflorescence.||Can also vary from slight to heavy sheen. Protection from weathering, algae, mold, rust, and efflorescence.||None recommended.|
