Like so many things there’s a myth that you can’t install pavers or restore pavers until the summertime. Probably because it’s warmer and it’s easier to deal with rain than snow. While the rain part may be true, it’s actually ideal to handle a paver restoration during the fall into early winter. Hardscape Restoration wants to make your installation or restorations as painless as possible. Here’s why Fall is the best time to upgrade your pavers:

Restoring & Installing Pavers In The Fall 1

“Cooler weather allows the sealer to penetrate into the pavers unhindered.”

Sealing in the Fall and Spring: Fall or spring is a great time of the year to seal pavers. Cooler weather allows the sealer to penetrate into the pavers unhindered. Pavers will have an adequate amount of protection for when it’s time to seal again. Make sure to keep leaves and other debris off the pavers while they are drying to avoid blemishes.

“If your pavers are not properly sealed, snow can get in between them and cause a shift in the formation.”

Preparing for the Winter: Snow can be extremely heavy, especially when there are multiple storms in a row. If your pavers are not properly sealed, snow can get in between them and cause a shift in the formation. By the time the snow melts you may have to start the restoration or installation all over again. Getting the patio finished early will ensure that your pavers are in pristine condition when the warmer weather comes around.

“Once your paver patio is restored or installed, you can enjoy the area immediately.”

Enjoy It ASAP: Once your paver patio is restored or installed, you can enjoy the area immediately. This is double beneficial if you have a paver fire pit or outdoor fireplace restored as well, as you can light a warm fire on crisper fall evenings.

“When your patio is being installed or restored it could take anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks…”

Less Hassle: When your patio is being installed or restored it could take anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks depending on how detailed the design is, or how big the area is for installation. This is why the fall is an ideal season for installation to prepare for the spring and summer.
