Maintain hardscapes’ beauty and create return business for yourself.
Just like any other outdoor surface, paver patios, walkways, driveways and other hardscapes can suffer from weather and repeated use. But you don’t have to allow stains and discoloration to ruin their value. By applying cleaners and sealers, you can maintain a hardscape’s beauty, help reduce wear and tear and add profit to your business all at the same time.
“It’s important to apply cleaners and sealers for the stability of the pavers,” said Dan Cipolla, manager at Ewing’s Wesley Chapel, Fla., location. “Also, it helps make for a nice, fresh, clean look.”
To prevent staining, Ewing offers an assortment of cleaners like rust, oil and efflorescence (the natural formation of salt deposits). Hardscape sealers help protect against stains, weather and traffic. They also simplify maintenance because stains will stay on the sealant instead of penetrating pavers. Check out Ewing’s sealer options for a variety of finished looks, ranging from a wet look with a satin or matte finish, to a natural look with satin or matte finish.
For your business, cleaning and sealing hardscapes are profitable ways to complement hardscape installations because they generate return business.
“You can have a paver job and walk away when you’re done, but this is something you can come back to annually or every few years,” said Cipolla. “It’s built-in work for the contractor as a maintenance sale. Think of hardscape cleaners and sealers as future sales.”
