How to repair my interlocking ?

Interlocking concrete pavers are used in home landscaping projects for patios, driveways, walkways and more, because interlocking stone pavers comes in varieties of shapes, size and styles and they are strong and durable that can last a lifetime

Interlocking surface damage

Without properly sealing your pavers, it is common to see some color fading , discoloration and surface damage in your interlocking patio. Coating the surface of your pavers with a sealer will help maintain the color and finish and minimize surface damages.

Sealing and resealing does not need to happen too often. Resealing your pavers every 3-5 years is sufficient enough if you use a good quality sealer

Weeds come through your pavers

Since there are narrow spaces between the pavers, it is not uncommon for unwanted plants, weeds, or pests to push their way through, but this cause unpleasant appearance on your driveway or walkways.

Polymeric sand is the best material to fill the narrow spaces between pavers. Polymeric sand comes in various colors, and adds strength to the overall pavement system, while deterring weeds at the same time.
