This application was the entrance to a large commercial property with high public visibility. The owners wanted to rejuvenate the entrance without having to replace the badly faded pavers. These pavers had not been sealed on a consistent basis over the years and thus faded. The color had been reduced to approximately 20% of the original pavers.
National Sealing Co is the largest paver sealer in the country with over 2M square feet of pavers protected. We recognized a need to develop a coloring process for properties that had not protected the pavers for various reasons. Fading of pavers is a fatal conclusion to the lack of continued sealing of pavers. Currently, many of those properties now are faced with a dilemma of how to restore the pavers without having to replace them.
In the past, some properties actually tried to stain or paint pavers. The resulting painted or stained surface would look very cheap and unnatural, become slippery and would be highly susceptible to frequent re-application. This created a never ending problem and eventually would have to be stripped.
We have developed a penetrating dyeing process or re-coloring process to faded pavers. We match the original dyes used to color the pavers and can apply our process while keeping the personality of the various medley of colors intact. Our process restores life back to tired, faded pavers and is a very economical solution versus the alternative of starting over.
The result is an attractive, restored paver.
