Best Brick Paver Sealer

Brick Paver Sealer

Brick Paver Sealer

Brick Paver Patios and landscaping blocks have become increasingly popular in the last 10-20 years. They offer an alternative to regular plain white concrete by adding old world charm which resemble walkways and streets of the 19th century. Brick Paver patios can be customized to be designed for any area. They are very popular for driveways, walkways, around pools, etc. Of course with any exterior horizontal surface, there is a need for general maintenance with brick pavers by cleaning and sealing on a regular basis.

Brick paver sealers are water repellents and coatings that are specifically designed to be used on paver stones and block.

Paver sealers have 3 main functions:

  • Seal and protect the pavers from UV degradation and fading.
  • Enhance to pavers by either adding a wet look, shine or both.
  • Solidify or stabilizing the jointing sand in between the individual stones

So what is the Best Brick Paver Sealer? Well there isn’t one that stands out from the rest for all scenarios. To determine what paver sealer is best you must first understand the differences between the sealers and what you would like to achieve when done.

Solvent Based Paver Sealers

Traditionally these are the most popular and have been around for the longest time. These pavers sealers are typically high in acrylic solids and will darken the surface. Available in Matte, Semi-Gloss, and High Gloss shines. Due to changes in state’s VOC laws, solvent based sealers may not be available locally but rather purchased online.

Crystal clear in liquid form. Popular solvents are Xylene, Toulene, and other Aromatic Solvents.

Pros: Last about 2+ years. Darken the color more so then water based sealers. Add a higher level of gloss if desired. Typically only one coat is needed. Higher level of protection against UV degradation and fading. Better for vehicle traffic.

Cons: May need to be rolled on as many cannot be sprayed (too thick). Will not solidify joint sand as well as a water based version. Square footage is less, typically about 100-125 sq. feet per gallon.

Water Based Paver Sealers

Water based versions of paver sealers have been forced on the scene in the last 5-10 years due to low VOC (volatile organic compounds) laws. Currently there are over 16 states in the US that restrict the availability of solvent based sealers. Water based sealers still contain acrylics but will have a lower solid content.

Milky white in liquid form that dries clear.

Pros: Easily applied with a garden type pump sprayer. Will penetrate better into the substrate and sand joints. Hardens jointing sand better. Square footage is better then solvent based sealers. Typically 150-200 sq. feet per gallon.

Cons: Multiple coats are needed. Will nor darken as deeply or leave a high gloss like a solvent based paver sealer. Medium level of protection from UV degradation and fading. Softer acrylics, can be prone to tire marks on a hot day.

Solid Acrylics vs Breathable (Styrene) Acrylics

When choosing a paver sealer is best to understand that not all acrylics are created equal. There are many paver sealers that contain inferior acrylics that will blush to turn white in color. Notably Behr Wet Look Sealer and H&C Water based sealer. Best for a paver sealer is one that does not seal the surface 100% but rather breathe. These sealers are less prone to trapping moisture which may lead to the dreaded white haze. Most high quality water based sealers will not blush as they a thinner in viscosity. Solvent based sealers containing a solid acrylic will have a tendency to blush/turn white. If you choose a solvent based sealer, make sure that it is a “Styrene” acrylic as these have tiny pinholes that allow the coating to breathe.

Joint Sand Stabilizing

A side function for paver sealing is the ability to help solidify or stabilize the jointing sand from erosion. While most paver sealers will do this to some extent, some are designed specifically for this purpose. Examples: SB-1300 and SB-7000.

Unfortunately joint stabilizing sealers do not add a high level of gloss or a deep darkening wet look.

Wet Look Paver Sealers

“Wet look” sometimes gets confused with “gloss”. Using a paver sealer that will leave a “wet look” means you are darkening the surface similar to as if it was wet with water. These sealers may or may not contain a shine level of some sort.

Gloss Paver Sealers

Gloss sealers will add a shine to the surface ranging from matter to high gloss. In most scenarios you will also darken the pavers with a wet look. These sealers may be prone to being slippery when wet.

    We live in SW Florida and have a paver circular driveway with adjacent access area to a triple garage (large area). We have had the area sealed twice, and both times efflorescence developed rapidly. We like the wet look, but no gloss, etc. What do you recommend for the best agent to prevent the efflorescence. If water based (where you recommended multiple coats),, how many coats are advised? Thanks.

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      GLS, are you sure it is efflorescence? It could be a bad sealer that is turning white or trapped moisture. You might need to strip off the old sealer first. The Surebond SB-6000 works well for w wet look with no gloss.

  3. Mark says:

    Live in southwest FL, need to redo sealing of pavers on pool deck(14yrs old) and front sidewalk and entry(6yrs old). Previously used a xylene based product(Scott Paint) but most of the sealer has worn off or has whitish apprearance.
    Want a wet glossy look but concerned about it being slippery(previously experienced). Will be resanding so I need joint stabilization and want application to be as esay as posiible as I will be working my butt off the remove the old sealer, white haze and mildew.

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      Mark, you will need a paver sealer stripper to remove the old sealer. Apply and pressure wash off. We use a stripper made by Clemons Concrete that works very well for this. After removal, look at the SuperSeal 25 or the SuperSeal 30 Paver. Sealer.

  5. Roxanne says:

    Hi, I'm in Portland, Oregon. We have two paver patios, two years old, with northern and eastern exposure. So lots of rain and algae.

    1. Yes
    2. Matte to Semi-gloss
    3. Joint Stabilization -not sure
    4. Easier to apply the better

    Any suggestions you have, are greatly appreciated. And thanks for putting this information out there!

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      Roxanne, we would suggest the Super Seal Matte Paver Sealer for this. Looks great when applied.

      • Roxanne says:

        Thanks for your quick reply! :-) Hopefully you won't mind answering a couple of questions. Will Super Seal Matte inhibit the algae growth and can it be power washed without compromising the product.? If power washing is a no, what recommendations do you have for cleaning algae etc… in the spring?

      • Roxanne says:

        Wouldn't you know, I came up with hopefully just one more question….After looking for Super Seal Matte, I got a bit confused (not hard for me to do) about the name. I understand that Super Seal Matte, is not the same product as Super Seal M.; one being solvent based, one being water based. I'm just not sure exactly what Super Seal Matte is or who makes it. I read somewhere that Clemens Concrete Coating makes a Matte finish in their Super Seal 25 product, but they don't list it as a product on their website. So is
        this what I'm looking for and is it the same thing as Clemons Concrete Coatings SS 25 with a matte finish?

  6. Bill says:

    Thanks in advance for your help. I am in Chicago.

    We are looking for the best "wet look" gloss paver sealer for our driveway and patio pool area. We live in the San Jose, CA area. Any suggestions? Thanks for any help.

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      You are limited in CA. Clemons Concrete does make a VOC version of their SuperSeal that is compliant for Cali. I would call them and see.

    Folks,
    my 1st post. Perhaps someone can offer a point of view/feedback on this.

    I am a BP Pro Sealer user. I just want to try something else that will bring out more of the color on my Paver stone ( reds/browns/charcoal) … I have sealed the serfaces a few times. Now I wish to seal the serface again with Say SuperSeal 25 or Super Seal 30. Will this product penetrate though the BP Pro ? For one surface it has been about 1 year since the last time I applied BP Pro to the paver stone and the UV light has done a good job of dulling the finish.

    Any guidance here ? I do not wish to strip the old sealer off. The ROI is not worth the effort.

    Thoughts ?
    thanks

    frankhere ( in San Diego)

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      I doubt you can apply a sealer on top of an older sealer it have it penetrate through. I also do not believe the SS25 or 30 are allowed in low VOC states. i would suggest contacting the manufacturer for some help.

  10. vhcprophet says:

    Great post. I have a large screened in porch with pavers that is 2 years old. I live in Virginia. I care about the following:
    Wet look – Yes
    No gloss
    Joint stabilization – Yes
    Ease of application – unimportant

    We are currently seeing sand loss issues. Any recommendations are appreciated.

  11. harley says:

    Hi. I recently had a brick paver patio installed, and the time has come to seal it. I'm in SW Florida. The company that installed the patio recommended that I use Clear-Seal 660, a xylene based sealer. But I haven't been able to find any good information about the product and wonder how it compares with say the Super Seal 30 product. I did find a pdf datasheet but it doesn't give information like % of acrylic. I was wondering if you have any experience with this product?

    I am looking for
    1. Wet look or at least bringing out the color
    2. No gloss, matte
    3. Joint stabilization: Yes
    4. Easily applied: No special equipment required
    5. Applying to patio and lanai

    Hi, I would like a recomendation on what type and a name of a product that fits my needs. It's for a commercial restaurant project. No cars will be driving on it. I am installing Belgard paver tiles Catalina Stone. My main concern is that the paver tiles do not have any color in them and I want them darker. My answers to the five questions are:
    Wet Look? Yes to darken and deepen color.
    preferably Matte or Semi-Gloss
    Joint Stabilization Importance? Yes (unless this prevents color darkening).
    Easily applied? Yes (unless this prevents color darkening)
    Small description of area–its a Patio (answer above) I would like the color to look like a deep brown stone.
    Thanks.

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      Laura, look at the SuperSeal Matte for this project. Enhances color and leaves a lower luster.

  15. Indyke says:

    I live in SW Florida and need to seal brick paved pool deck/patio and driveway. We recently bought the house and it does not look like it has been ever sealed. The pavers are about 10 years old. I have pressure washed the area couple of times since we moved in about a year ago which may have removed some of the sand.
    1. Do I need to apply sand?
    2. What sealer should I pick (wet look – YES, semi gloss, joint stabilization important-YES, easily applied – YES)
    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      Indyke, yes you should apply new sand. Try Super Seal 25 for this.

      • Indyke says:

        Thanks for the help. One more thing, should I use polymeric sand? Also, I checked the Tech info for Super Sealer 25 states that VOC not compliant in all states. Should I be concerned about this since I have a 2 year old? Thanks again for help.

        • Concrete Sealer Help says:

          You can use poly sand to help with sand erosion. Make sure that you remove all the sand dust from the surface prior to misting with water. I would not worry about the VOC. Means nothing after it dries.

    I live near Spokane, WA and need to seal pavers that are about 9 years old. We get snow in the winter here, and also some rain in the spring and early fall. Concrete pavers are on the walkway to front porch, parking area right in front of the garage, and walkway to the back yard. If I use SuperSeal 30, is there something I can use on top of it to give better grip when wet? Also, do you know if I can use SuperSeal in Washington state. Thanks in advance for your advice.
    Wet look
    Gloss

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      Jeri, I do not see why you cannot use SuperSeal 30 in WA. We like to use the SuperGrip additive to reduce the chance of being slippery.

    Hi – We have a paver patio in our back yard with a retaining wall made of concrete wall block. We live in the mountains and can get quite a bit of snow in the winter which can last 4-6 months. I would like a water-based sealer that will give a wet look and is matte or semi-gloss that will definitely help with joint stabilization. Can we apply the same sealer to both the patio and retaining wall? Thanks for your recommendations.

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      Kurt, for this you would need two products. Surebond\’s SB-1300 first followed by the SB-6000.

  22. JoEEE says:

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      JoEEE, try a polymeric sand at your local store to help with the sand. Careful to not leave any dust on top of the pavers that will turn white in color. Seal with SuperSeal Matte.

  24. George says:

    Hi, just installed new brick pavers manufactured by Flagstone Pavers. I live in the Tampa Bay Area of Florida. Overall concern is lifespan, quality and durability. Like everyone else, I'm a homeowner looking for the best product that I can install myself with low maintenance if possible. If there is something better that requires a professional to do it right (as long as I can find one that will do it right) that's fine too. Advice on both is greatly appreciated!
    Thanks.

    Wet look? Yes
    Gloss? Preferably high(semi-gloss ok)
    Joint stabilization? Would like but not a key factor if at expense of quality/ durability – already have ants coming up through joints. Would it do any good to treat for ants before sealing?
    Easily applied? Preferably, but not at expense of quality/durability.
    Area description: Front entrance/walkway/courtyard of house(400 sf.) – 1" pavers on existing concrete and newly excavated area and; back patio(560 sf.) 2 3/8" pavers on new excavation.

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      George, SuperSeal 30 for this. No help for pre-treating for ants. Saturate sand with sealer and it will help solidify.

  31. Alesha says:

    One month ago we installed a 700 sq. ft patio using 16×16 paver stones from the Cassey Collection (brown tones) at Lowes. We used Sakrete polymeric sand to fill the joints and immediately we noticed the white haze everyone is talking about. We love the multiple colors when they are wet by upon drying they look white again. We want to seal the stone with a somewhat wet look that will not be to slick and we want to bring out the brown tones but are worried about sealing in the haze. Any recommendations? We live in TN and our patio gets sun in the morning and is shaded in evening.

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      You need to remove the poly haze first. I would contact the manufacturer of the poly sand and ask them what to use to remove.

      • Alesha says:

        We have attempted removing with the recommended diluted Vinegar and lots of scrubbing with no luck. We are out of ideas and are just going to seal because the sand in the joints is getting loose from all the attempted cleaning. We have already had to replace some sand. We are just going to seal and be done. I have read that if you put the wet look sealant on it will bring out the color and hide some of the haze. Is this true and which to do you recommend? Wet look with matte finish is what we are looking for.

    We live in AZ and it is very hot and bright. The area will be used for the pool, also need a good sealer to prevent stains and fading. Stains trying to minimize would be grease from the BBQ area and wine in my wife's area. We have play sand for the joints on Belgard Cabridge Toscana and need to figure out how to bring out the color and to also prep them. They are newly installed – so no stains or moss yet…

    Trying to figure out if I should pay someone or do it my self. If having someone else seal them, what do I need to ask them to figure out if they will be able to provide a quality product?

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      It is not that hard so just do it yourself. Use the SuperSeal25 or the SuperSeal Matte.

      • Alan says:

        what about any prep requirements if the pavers are new, no stains, just the dust from the sand. Do I need to hose them off prior to prep, or is the dust fine?

  39. Alan says:

    what about necessary prep prior to putting down the SuperSeal25 or SuperSeal Matte? New pavers with regular sand. Do I need to rinse off or is a little sand dust on the pavers an issue?

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      Look at the SuperSeal 25 for this.

      • Mike says:

        Thanks… do I use a roller or spray for this?
        Also, I read that I need to wait 2 or 3 months to seal since the pavers are brand new. Some kind of salt has to come up. Is that true? Or can I seal right away without a power washer? (Just sweep the dust and any dirt and apply the sealer).

        • Concrete Sealer Help says:

          Roll would be best. Yes you can wait to see if any efflorescence salts come up or not. Lightly wash for prep.

  41. Cory says:

    I have old pavers in my front driveway that have never been sealed. I just had new pavers installed in pool area. Joint stabilization is not important. Achieving a wet look without the chances of it clouding over is very important. I live in south florida which get tremendous sun and rain. I hear you need to have a sealer that has microscopic pin holes in it to allow the moisture to escape. This will not cause the clouding over like some sealers do. I would like to roll it on with a solvent based sealer. What are some recommendations?
    Thanks

    I need help with brick pavers in my kitchen. I've had them refinished twice recently but they keep turning a yellow-ish white color in certain spots. I believe we have a high-water table which may explain it. Would a breathable sealant, instead of one that attempts to block moisture be a better idea?

    Thanks!

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      You cannot fix this by adding more sealer on top of the sealer that is already having issues. You would need to remove the old sealer and that also is not going to work on an indoor application.

  44. Jim says:

    I live in northwest Florida and recently installed (2 months ago) pavestone pavers over my old concrete back porch. They have a nice mottled neutral look that blends well with my used brick house wall and the porch drains well. The porch is elevated and I intend to paint the vertical concrete surface with rustoleum 10x then deck down, so paver joint stability is my primary concern. Also a factor is ease of maintenance since I have so many trees and afternoon sun is intense. I do not want to darker the tone nor do I want a glossy slippery finish

    No wet look
    Minimal gloss
    Joint stability important
    Prefer spray application, 300 sq ft but advise if roller will give better results

  45. Bob says:

    My paver guy wants to seal our driveway with Techniseal because it is made by Tremeron who made our pavers. I notice you have them listed on your website but I could not find a review. Is there one somewhere and if not do you compare them to Super Seal 25. We would use Techniseal's Wet Look Sealer WL4 which is solvent based.

    Thanks

    Hi. I live in Minnesota so we have the extreme temperatures. I am looking to seal a large area of paver patios: driveway, sidewalks, patio. The install is about 9 years old. I also want to seal the stone siding outside of my house.
    I am seeking:
    1. Wet look- yes
    2. No gloss, prefer matte
    3. Joint stabilization- not sure- would like to see the weeds gone
    4. Easily applied- yes please
    5. Prefer penetrating

    I'm also not sure how to prep this age of pavers- wash? Pull weeds? Kill weeds? Add new sand? And application? Spray or roll?

    Thanks!

      Camryn, kill weeds first and pressure wash off. Resand after it dries if needed and blow off the excess sand before sealing. Try the Surebond SB-8700 for this.

    Looking to seal my newly installed pool deck. It was done with brick pavers. I want the wet look but no gloss because I don't want it to be slippery. I tried the H&C wet look product in a small sample area and I am not satisfied with the look. It barely has the wet look that I want. The installer told me preferably to use water based since the solvent based damages the pavers. Any recommendations?

    I live in Virginia Beach and re-laid some old (~30 year old) brick in my driveway and walkways. Used new brick pavers as an apron and header row around. Some of the brick have corners chipped off of them so joint stabilization is a must as some of the joints are large.

    Wet look – yes
    Prefer matte
    Joint stabilization – yes
    Easily applied – yes

    Thanks…
