Masonry Saver Paver Sealer Review

As of 2022, Masonry Saver Paver Sealer continues to exceed expectations by providing a beautiful finish for brick pavers. If you have used Masonry Saver Paver Sealer, we want to hear your input! Feel free to leave us a comment with the pictures below. We are here to help!


MasonrySaver (Also known as Defy) Epoxy Fortified Paver Sealer is a durable, water-based, clear wet-look concrete sealant designed to protect and beautify both clay brick and cement patio type paver stones, giving them a rich satin finish while also functioning as a paver sand sealer.

Paver Sealer provides protection from both water and the ultra-violet light of the sun. It can be used on most types of horizontal, above-grade concrete applications including clay brick, clay paver stones, and natural stone.

Applied to a brick paver patio surrounding a pool.

Masonry Saver Paver Sealer Scores (1-10)

Wet Look: 7.5

– The MasonrySaver Paver Sealer did darken the surface but not nearly as much as a solvent-based sealer will. It definitely looked richer but was lacking in that deep rich look.

Gloss Level: 6.5

– It took two coats of the sealer to see some gloss. The gloss level was more of a matte shine, not a semi-gloss. Being that this install was around a pool, that could be a benefit for potential slipping.

Joint Sand Hardening: 9

– Excellent joint sand hardening. The water-based MasonrySaver Paver Sealer penetrated completely through the sand, solidifying the joint sand all the way to the base.

Fading/Wearing After 2 Years: 7

– The Epoxy Resin in this sealer seemed to help with fading at the 2-year mark. There was not wearing or peeling but rather a very even faded look. It did not seem to have any issues with chlorine from the pool water. The joint sand loss was at a minimal.

White Haze/Yellowing: 10

– There was not any visible white hazing or yellowing of the sealer after 2 years.

Overall Score MasonrySaver Paver Sealer at 2 Year Period: 8.0

– The MasonrySaver Paver sealer is one of the best water-based paver sealers that we have tested. We were a little disappointed by the initial finished appearance but were surprised by how well it help up and prevented any discoloring after two years. Being that it is a water-based sealer, it is applied easily with a plastic garden sprayer.

We would recommend this sealer for better-than-average durability and ease of application.

Same question as above, but with Surebond SB-6000

Hi, can Masonry Paver Sealer be applied on exposed aggregate patio that was sealed two years ago with Behr Wet Look Sealer (water-based: acrylic + latex)? Can this be done without stripping off the Behr sealer?

The aggregate surface appears normal, but dull. No obvious white residue, but I also have nothing to compare it to. It’s a raised patio (over a car port) with trees/shrubs below. I guess the follow-up question is, do I need to strip off the Behr or can a non-toxic cleaner do the job for Masonry Paver Sealer to adhere over the Behr? Is there a test if I do the latter? Thanks

I am looking to seal some concrete bricks that edge my paver patio. All are about 20 years old. The edger bricks are showing signs of hairline cracks at the edge and I believe will start to crumble with foot traffic. Will the masonry saver sealant with epoxy help to preserve the edgers…at least for a while? We cannot replace them as the product isnt made anymore and we cannot find a replacement that is the same 4″ height. So need to preserve what we have! Thank you for your advice

thanks for quick reply. technically they havent failed yet…original “curved” shape to the edge is still intact. Its just that I can see cracks on those edges. Hence Im thinking the epoxy sealant might help? at the very least…would you agree “it can’t hurt”? I dont want to accelerate the damage.

The coverage is a rather wide range (75-150 sf); is that per coat or for the two recommended coats? What factors affect which end of that range I should use to calculate how much I need?

Hi, we are trying to “fix” a patio install gone astray. Installer put about 1/2 inch of polymeric sand into joints that were primarily filled with what I’m guessing is base sand. Long story how this happened. It involved two different people and right hand didn’t know what the left hand was doing. We don’t want to remove all the sand to refill all joints with 3 inches of polymeric. (We have 800 sq ft patio) We’re hoping to remove the 1/2 inch of polymeric and fill with joint sand then seal with a stabilizing sealer. Is there anything I… Read more »

My clay brick patio was just put in about three weeks ago, and polymeric sand was used. I want to seal the patio, but I want a clear finish with no shine whatsoever. I want it to look as if it was not sealed at all; is that considered a matte finish? What sealant do you recommend that I use? There is still some loose polymeric sand upon rinsing and sweeping the patio. And some of the sand has dislodged. Should I patch the sand before using any kind of sealant? It is heading into the winter rainy season right… Read more »

I believe i am looking for a sealer like this one but would like to know if there is an even better brand before i buy. Im looking for the wet look that can be sprayed with PLASTIC SPRAYER like this one claims. Main reason is because i have a cobbled patio look that has ploymeric sand in the joints but the joints can be anywhere from and inch to 2 inches wide and im scared a roller may not be a good idea.. any recomendations or help?

Would also like a higher rating of wet look. As this one alot of people claim doesnt give it much wet look.

Is this the highest recommended option for my situation do you think? Any other options? May be better to rent a sprayer for the solvent based sealers? Ill post pics, as i said im a little concerned rolling it because ive herd the sand could come onto the roller and ruin it. The pics are just after i added sand, and then wetting it. Obviously really like the way it looks wet lol

Yes quikrete concrete pavers from DIY mold I figured I would try out. Im a first timer when it comes to any of this. Yes I believe I had cleaned the pavers off pretty well of sand.. went around with a paintbrush on each one individually, then wet it. Would you suggest a spray sealer like I am thinking? Or do you think can get away rolling it? any more advice as I havent done any of this before would help. Thanks again

Do you have to have sand between the pavers before sealing?

Around all of our windows we have either water coming in or just a constant air flow. The windows have been sealed properly which makes us think the brick is not sealed correctly or at all. what would you recommend for a clear coat sealer?

And I have one follow up kind of basic question – we just installed polymeric sand on our new pavers yesterday (11/4) – how long should we wait to clean and seal the pavers?

Just to confirm, once you apply the MasonrySaver Epoxy Fortified Paver Sealer does it get slippery when wet or is there minimal risk of that happening? We have recently installed Belgard pavers out here in San Diego and we’re looking for a good water based sealer with more of a “wet look” but not necessarily glossy to the point of being slippery.

I recently had a concrete paver patio installed and I used travertine pavers as the countertop for my grill island. Can this product be applied to both types of pavers? Also does it need to be stripped prior to another application in a couple years? Thank you

Have you tested/reviewed SB1300 or SB7700? I’m looking for a sealer that is really good at joint stabilization (as an alternative to poly sand). Would you recommend Masonry Saver’s paver sealer over Surebond equivalents?

Does this product create a slippery surface when wet? I would like to use in a Florida enclosed lanai. Some areas become wet when it rains.

Does the coverage per gallon apply to 2 coats like it suggests to apply, or for just 1 coat?

I am interested in sealing our brick paver driveway/parking lot in a condominium in Florida. I was interested in water based product such as Defy but after reading some of the info linked to this site I found that it was not recommended for driveways. Is this true of all water based products? Is there one you could recommend.

Thanks

OK I am really confused and need help. I linked to one of your suppliers http://www.opwdecks.com/defy-paver-sealer-1-gallo… and they had this quote "Do not use Defy Paver Sealer on Hot Tire areas / Driveways." What is the real situation.

Thanks,
Bob

Hi there I've been told that the main drawback between Water based and Solvent based sealers are that with Solvent based sealers (although it has its advantages in richer colors and longer lasting) has a major downside in the need to strip it after several years before reapplying. Is this true? This is why I would prefer to use water based as its easier to reapply without the need to strip. Would appreciate your advice on this.
