    See for yourself what a dramatic difference professional paver cleaning and sealing services make.


This outside entry in Fallbrook had 30-year-old Saltillo pavers that were dull and unwelcoming in appearance. Many layers of wax and sealer had built up over the ten years since the entrance was last professionally serviced.


With two options — either replacing the existing tiles or having us stain and seal them — our client chose to save money and go with refinishing services. We stripped the old sealer and wax from the Saltillo and then stained and sealed the tiles to give the entry a fresh look. You can see for yourself in the AFTER image that restoration, rather than replacement, was a smart decision.
