Paver patio restoration is a comprehensive process designed to rejuvenate and enhance the appearance, durability, and functionality of your outdoor paver patio. Over time, exposure to the elements, weathering, and use can cause paver patios to become dirty, faded, uneven, and prone to weed and moss growth. Here’s an overview of the paver patio restoration process and why it’s important to have it done:
- Inspection and Assessment: The process starts with a thorough inspection of the paver patio’s condition. The technician will check for issues such as sunken or uneven pavers, weeds or moss growth between the pavers, and any damage or structural issues. Any necessary repairs or adjustments are identified during this phase.
- Clearing and Preparation: The patio is cleared of furniture, plants, and any other obstructions. This allows for easy access and thorough cleaning. Debris, leaves, and weeds between the pavers are removed.
- Repairs and Leveling: Sunken or uneven pavers are lifted, and the base material is adjusted to ensure proper leveling. Broken or damaged pavers are replaced as needed.
- Cleaning: The patio is cleaned using high-pressure washing equipment or a specialized paver cleaning solution. This step removes dirt, stains, moss, algae, and other surface contaminants.
- Weed and Moss Removal: Weeds, moss, or any other vegetation growing between the pavers are thoroughly removed. Weed control measures may be applied to inhibit future growth.
- Sanding and Joint Filling: Polymeric sand or joint filler is applied to the gaps between the pavers. This material not only fills gaps but also helps lock the pavers in place, preventing weed growth and enhancing stability.
- Reassembly and Cleanup: After the patio is fully dried, furniture, plants, and other items are returned to their positions. Any waste materials and debris from the restoration process are cleaned up and properly disposed of.

- Improved Durability: The restoration process addresses any structural issues, such as sunken or uneven pavers, ensuring that your patio is level and stable. This can reduce the risk of accidents and improve safety.
- Weed and Moss Prevention: Removal of weeds, moss, and other vegetation between the pavers and the application of joint filler can prevent future growth, minimizing maintenance requirements.
- Extended Lifespan: Regular restoration and maintenance can extend the lifespan of your paver patio, saving you money on costly replacements.
