Paver sealers come in several different types of finishes. Sealer finishes can range from a matte or semi-gloss to a high gloss or wet look appearance. In this article, we want to address shiny paver sealers and how they differ from other finishes such as a wet look sealer, and yes there is a difference.
All paver sealers are used to help solidify sand joints between pavers, lock out unwanted moisture, reduce weed growth, reduce freeze and thaw damage, and of course create a beautiful long-lasting finish. In terms of the final finish of a sealer, a matte finish will not alter the appearance of the pavers while a shiny paver sealer will leave a glossy appearance. A wet look sealer will leave the pavers looking wet even after the sealer has dried but is not designed to add shine.
