Check out this neat project we had an opportunity to work on! This is a large calcium removal project we got to tackle in the Highlands community of Hudson Florida. A Pasco county Florida community. After calcium was removed - we sealed the entire half mile length of retaining wall to leave this surface looking new for years to follow!

Project color restoration:: SUCCESS👍
This New Port Richey home owner was going to replace his faded, sun bleached grey, dingy pavers don't with new brown ones. Thankfully, he saved around $20,000 by having us add a permanent translucent tint to his brick pavers after our cleaning process today. We are the only company in the Tampa bay area using a permanent color tint to either enhance your faded brick pavers back to a rich, vibrant, full of life color, or change the color of your pavers all together !! This is a PERMENANT tint - meaning it won't fade away or wear off.

Solvent based paver sealers.
There are many different names for the same product. Solvent based, oil based, Acrylic based, Xylene based.
So what is a solvent? A solvent directly translates to “Able to dissolve other substances”.
These types of sealers create a thin film that overlies the brick paver or travertine surface that was sealed, preventing any moisture from passing down through the sealant and into the surface.
Sounds great, right? Yes and no.
These types of sealants are great up north, where there is not a lot of ground moisture present. Here in central and south Florida however, we have a subtropical climate. Sub tropical climates are indicative of having high levels of ground moisture. That ground moisture permeates through the soil, into the aggragate material that your brick pavers or travertine is floating on, is absorbed into your paver or travertine surface and now is trapped under that thin film I talked about earlier. That film is a double edge sword. Moisture can n...
Here's another big one. 8000 square ft brick paver driveway and 2000 sq ft brick paver Pool deck (Total of 10,000 sq ft) another brick paver sealing contractor sealed a year ago, using a cheap, solvent-based brick paver sealant.
These types of sealants act as a very thick coating that goes over the top of the brick paver surface rather than soaking in to the pores like a penetrating brick paver s...ealant would do. This thick coating does not allow the ground moisture that we have here in Florida's subtropical climate to evaporate out of the brick Pavers once that ground moisture has permeated through the ground soil and aggregate material the brick pavers float on.
You can see that the moisture that gets trapped underneath that type of sealant becomes white and cloudy (refer to "before photo" on left).
The only way to remove that white cloudiness is to have a brick paver sealing company like Dura Guard Paver sealing perform a very expensive, labor intensive costly stripping of the fai...
