Do paver patios need regular maintenance to stay in their brand new condition?
No body wants to spend money that they don't need to, so the question is is it worth it to have my pavers maintained? That may be a question of more personal matters, but if you spend the money to have pavers installed, you probably enjoy the idea of a brand new look. The short answer is that proper paver maintenance is an on going project.
What Causes Patio Damage?
There are a few things that can cause your pavers to shift over time if not maintained. Roots can grow in between pavers and cause the pavers to be dislodged from underneath, usually meaning you have to reset the pavers.If you have waited too long to maintain your patio, you may need costly repairs which involve picking up pavers, and even replacing bad ones. The good news is, that as long as you have had your pavers put in by an experienced professional, most of the time structurally, they are ok even if you have put off maintenance for a few years. If you have put off maintenance for a few years, make sure to BOOK your appointment now to make sure there is no further damage.
What Can You Do?
What can you do on your own in between maintenance?
- Make sure to keep the area on top of and around the pavers nice and clean.

What does a typical professional maintenance include?
