Doing the right way in paving walkways

commercial paving walkways

Have you ever checked the curb appeal of your business establishment? Does it reflect your style? If not, perhaps it’s time to plan some improvements to your driveway and walkways. An upgrade will make a very stressful day sweeter and impress your clients and visitors.

Adding paver stones will make a great impact on your driveway and walkways. Colors, textures, and patterns tend to slow traffic down while uniform and large paver stones will cause people to pass by without a second glance. If you choose a smaller pattern, you might want to add a border or an additional pattern such as slate seamless texture used in stamped concrete. To get an idea of how a paving pattern might look, you can visit sites with complete projects and have samples brought in and laid down as though they were already set. This will help you make pattern and color choices.

If you are on a budget, you can add natural stones or pavers in a grid pattern, or as borders. Borders can be contrasting or complementary stone inlay or a solid brick course along the edge of a walkway. Be aware that borders can give the illusion of a smaller area, they work well in driveways but are not advisable on walkways that are less than four feet in length.

Driveways and walkways don’t have to be straight. A long winding driveway, especially through a wooded area, creates a feeling of privacy. If you want the convenience of driving up to the front door, the Governor-style driveway has two entrance/exit points to the street and makes a half circle in front of the house, creating a stylish and graceful approach to your home.

Applying paving sealer to the surface of your driveway or walkway is necessary to keep it looking new and sturdy. You can get this product from a hardware store or online. It is ideal to choose a water-based paving sealer over any other types of sealer. Though it has the same property of other sealers, it has no solvents and its components are environmental-friendly.

Before paving sealing, see to it that the surface of your walkway or driveway is dry. You should also check the weather and ensure that rain is not likely to occur For the next 12 to 24 hours. Applying a paving sealer on a damp or wet surface is not recommended. You may also need to apply two coats of sealer depending on how porous or how old your paver is. Take note that there are certain pavers that only need single coating.

You should also determine how you are going to apply the protective coating. Are you going to use a roller, a sprayer, or a paintbrush? Whatever tool you use, you must see to it that you use it properly so you can apply the coat evenly.

Do not forget to wear protective gears such as goggles, gloves, and mask. See to it that the area is well ventilated. You should use the right amount of paving sealer and start at the corner of your walkway or driveway. Eventually, you would work yourself toward the other area. Do not hurry on applying the coatings. Take your time to ensure that the sealant is evenly distributed.

You should soak the area that needs to be sealed especially the paving joints. Just be careful not to overuse the sealer. See to it that you do not miss any area. Wait for the first coating to dry completely before you apply the second one. Once both coatings have been applied, you should wait for two to four hours before you use the walkway or driveway. A paving sealer typically dries within two to four hours but this can vary on the weather.

If you live in a place where the climate is hot, your driveway or walkway may dry faster compared to a place where it is usually cold. In addition, you should refrain from wearing high heels or spiked shoes on your walkway or driveway even when the paving sealer has already dried after two to four hours. You should wear flat shoes or golf shoes to prevent the soles from leaving marks. It is actually best to wait for twenty-four hours before you set foot on the pavers. This is to ensure that the sealer for pavers has completely dried and your walkway or driveway is ready for traffic again.
