The cement had not been maintained / sealed properly over the years and was badly stained. Although there were a few options to restore or clean the area, it was decided to pressure wash the area combined with aggressive chemicals. Of course, oils stains over many years would never be 100% removed, the plan was to color the cement using our patented paver coloring process.
National Sealing Co is the largest paver sealer in Florida and perhaps the country with over 2 Million sq. ft. of pavers sealed. We have developed a process of dyeing or re-coloring pavers, (in this case bare cement) by matching the dyes originally used. This is a penetrating process while coloring the cement resulting in a flat look to resemble pavers. Since we can match the pavers originally used, the cement area would look similar to the pavers so at first glance, the entire area would look like it had brick pavers.
Other options would have included staining the cement, however, the stains would not have matched the existing pavers. This result was the best approach for having the area look as one.
