Green Seed Landscaping
Answer: Yes
Explanation: A concrete driveway should be sealed every four to five years at a minimum. Concrete is porous and sealing helps to prevent water from seeping into the concrete. This is especially critical in a freeze and thaw region where expansion of frozen water can destroy unsealed concrete over time. Sealing also helps prevent against other elements such as oils, salts, gas, etc.

Sun Coast Concrete Designs & Solutions
Answer: Yes
Explanation: Although it is technically not required, I would highly recommend a coat of sealer. What this coat of sealer will do is protect the porous material used to build construct the driveway and help prevent stains, surface marks, rust etc. When it comes to paver driveways in particular, another benefit of applying sealer would be the bonding of the paver sand used. When sealer is absorbed by the sands between the pavers, it acts almost more as a mortar mix the way it bonds much tighter. People often pass up on sealing driveways and patios to cut corners in saving money, but with yearly or bi-yearly applications of sealer, they save more money in the long run, and keep their driveways look more appealing.

Hovarth Concrete Construction
Answer: In some cases
Explanation: As a professional hardscape installer that specializes in paver patio installation, we’re often asked during the design process if we recommend the pavers get sealed. Sealing pavers is primarily for added aesthetics and decreased maintenance. When we seal pavers, we often use a sealer called a joint stabilizing sealer. This sealer has an epoxy additive that soaks into the sand in the joints of the pavers and turns the sand hard like mortar when it dries. Now, the sand will stay in the joints and not get washed out when it rains or when you wash the pavers. How does this keep my paver patio from falling apart? One of the main reason pavers are called interlocking pavers is due to the sand that’s lodged into the joints. If this sand is washed out, the paver patio will start to loose its integrity and eventually start to fall apart. Sealant will keep your pavers protected from the elements, thus they will be cleaner. When pavers are sealed, the sealer fills up the pores of the pavers making any dirt that hits the surface stay on the surface and not penetrate the paver. Making it much easy to clean off the paver patio. Of course, it’s extremely important to clean the pavers very good before you seal them. Any dirt left on the surface when you seal will get sealed in place. We recommend using a good paver cleaner prior to cleaning. What kind? We recommend that pavers be sealed using a water based joint stabilizing sealer. The water based sealers won’t build up on the surface like solvent based sealers do. Water based sealers won’t show wear/traffic patterns like solvent based sealers do. Water based sealers are much easier to apply than solvent based sealers and require much less clean up during installation. The joint stabilizing part of the water based sealer is recommended for most pavers. However, if the joint between the pavers measures more than 1/4? we don’t recommend using a joint stabilizing sealer. You can still use a water based paver sealer, just make sure
