Continue to step-by-step instructions
This D.I.Y. Advice is part of a series How to lay pavers

Step by Step Instructions

1 Prepare your pavers for sealing
2 Apply sealer to the sides of each paver
3 Apply sealer to the back of each paver
4 Apply a second and third coat of sealer
  • Step 1. Prepare your pavers for sealing

    Make sure your pavers are clean and dry before you apply the sealant. It’s a good idea to apply your first coat before laying the pavers to stop any moisture coming in from the ground. Sit your pavers down on a flat even surface, such as a sawhorse. Position them a few centimetres apart so air can easily flow through.  
  • Step 2. Apply sealer to the sides of each paver

    Put on your safety glasses and shake the sealer well before opening. Pour some sealer into your tray. Then with a paintbrush apply an even coverage to the sides of each paver. Use your paint roller to apply sealer to the top of your paver. This will smooth out any excess product that has spilled over from the sides. Make sure you wear a mask if you are working in a poorly ventilated area. 

  • Step 3. Apply sealer to the back of each paver

    Once the sealer on the sides and front of your pavers is dry, you can flip these over and repeat the process on the back. Drying times for sealers differs between brands. Refer to your product’s instructions to find out how long this will take. 

  • Step 4. Apply a second and third coat of sealer

    The amount of coats you need to apply will vary, depending on the type of sealer you use. Always refer to the instructions on the can to find out if you need a second or third coat. You can apply the extra coats by repeating the process in steps two and three, or, you can lay the pavers into the ground and apply directly to the front panel for aesthetics.
