Default Brick paver cleaning & sealing?

Ok, I have done my homework, here, and on other sites and I am going to be cleaning as well as sealing my brick pavers. All I need is the name of the best water based product you have used, or have had a pro use.

Also, I will be looking at hiring a professional as well, any good recommendations in the central FL area?

as always....thanks!

There's a guy on here with paver sealing in his screen name. Very knowledgeable.
I used a h2o based sealer because he rec'd it but it does not have the gloss look we were looking for...
we used SW WetLook or something like that. His product may be better.

Don't know about water based, but if you want a reputable product that works, Prosoco makes a great product line. I have had great results with their SureKleen and then the Siloxane sealer. They make other products that may suit your needs. They can be purchased at most masonry supply stores.

These products work well for me, I am a manufacturer and use and recommend them.

Im going water based because most all of the negative response and feedback with sealing pavers seemed to come from utilizing oil based sealants. Something about sealing in moisture, then paver turning white on top.

Thank you for those product recommendations, and in your expert opinion, can these be applied fairly easily by a novice like myself who is a 10 on the "Anal scale" as far as prep work, cleaning and following all the procedures correctly?

Yes, it's pretty easy.

Prosoco makes a nice product, so consider this a x2.

Depending on the area, the surekleen can be applied by a long handled brush, follow the I structions, including dilution. The siloxane can be applied by pump sprayer, buy a cheapie.

I used a product by Paverbond, it was a water based epoxy sealer. Provided a sheen and never had any clouding issues. You may want to see if that's available too.

You can do it, just follow the instructions
