How to restore colour to brick pavers

Updated February 21, 2017

Brick pavers can become faded and lose their lustre over time. They are generally used on patios, paths, pool decks and along driveways. They can be used to enhance the exterior of the home, giving it a elegant look. Unfortunately, pavers sometimes need restoration at some point. Fortunately, you can easily restore the faded colour of your brick pavers with a few simple techniques.

Remove dirt and grime from the brick pavers by using a pressure washer or a long-handled brush. Use oxygen-bleach solution to remove mould or algae.

Leave the brick pavers to dry completely for at least one to two days.

Apply a sealer to the brick pavers using a sponge roller or a heavy-duty metal sprayer. Use a solvent-based sealer for best results. Let the pavers dry thoroughly for 24 hours.

Warning

To prevent the pavers from becoming white, never use sealer on wet brick pavers.
