Terracotta Before & After

  • Terracotta Pavers Before
    These pavers were in very poor condition. Notice how extreme the damage is.
  • Terracotta Pavers After
    Our professional paver cleaning and sealing services made paver replacement completely unnecessary.


The terracotta pavers on this patio in La Mesa had a heavy build-up of hard water and efflorescence after years of neglect.


We scrubbed and power washed the pavers four times, and then acid-washed and dried them. Finally, we applied an impregnator sealer to give the pavers some protection while preserving the natural appearance.
