Sealing block paving and filling gaps

Postby knzbn00 » Thu Jul 02, 2020 5:32 pm

We had our block paving done a few years ago and I don't think the people that did it finished the job properly. They were meant to come back and finish the work and never did, and we never got round to getting it sorted out (we were a bit younger at the time and didn't have much knowledge on the issues). Now we are looking to sell and from weeding the paving, I've noticed there are quite big gaps between some of the blocks so I'm wondering whether they sealed it?
I'm going to pressure wash it tomorrow to give it a good clean but wanted some advice on what I'd need to seal it myself? Don't want to spend a fortune as we are looking to sell so its more about curb appeal and tidying it all up. Advice on equipment needed or the best course of action would be great, cheers!

Hi knzbn00
One you have pressure washed allow the paving to dry throughly and then brush kiln dried sand into the gaps in the blocks.
