This was a residential application. This account had someone come out and apply a stain to the pavers with hopes of restoring the color. They could tell from the small area applied, that ‘staining pavers’ was basically painting the pavers. This would have resulted in a horrible, tacky and unnatural look to the pavers. The pavers had been stained as well, and continued cleaning would not remove the stains. Our process not only hid the stains but restored the natural look of the pavers.
National Sealing Co is the largest paver sealer in the country with over 2 million square feet of pavers protected. We recognized a need to develop a coloring process for faded pavers. Fading of pavers is a fatal conclusion to the lack of continued sealing of pavers.
The goal was to RESTORE the pavers, or come as close as we could to a natural look. We wanted to avoid the STAINED or PAINTED look which would render an unnatural look, and an ongoing maintenance issue. For vehicular applications staining and painting tend to ‘lift’ with hot tires. Our dye penetrates the porous pavers.
National Sealing applied our grey dyeing process.
