    Here’s a pc of my patio with brick pavers. I do not know what product the man used to seal the aggregate/bricks. Bricks turned milky white. We have had a lot of rain this spring. I do not have a power washer. Any recommendations to correct this would be greatly appreciated.
    thanks,
    Mary Ann Ford

      You can try the A-1 Solvent. Just apply and let dry and see if that restores the shine and removes the white.

    I have a dark brown border around a very light tan paver driveway that is milky white and I want to strip it. Driveway is 2 years old and the product used was "HC Ultrapaver Water Based Gloss Paver Sealer"

    I used Round Up (extended use Round up) on weeds in my pavers. I know that I should not have, but I didn't know better. Now I have white marks all over the pavers. How can I remove them or will they (as I have read) fade over time?

      Not sure what caused the white or if it is permanent or not. Depends on what the chemicals are and if it etched the pavers. If a residue just on top, then pressure washing should remove it. If it etched the surface, then it cannot be removed.

    We put in a small walkway last year with white tumbled stone pavers. After a storm this year, the white pavers turned brown. Do you know what happened and how do we get them white again?

    We had new pavers and coping installed on our patio and the pewter ones came with some rubs/scratches?? on them.
    1. Anyway to get these to go away? Would a sealant help them disappear?
    2. How long should we wait to seal it all? The deck has been in since December. The coping was re-installed today.
    3. We also ended up with thinset grout on the pewter coping and it has appeared to stain. How can we get it off without damaging the color?

    Any advice/support is very appreciated. If you enlarge the pic, you can see the coping issues.

      1. does it show when wet with water? If not, try a sealer that gives a wet look.
      2. You can seal now.
      3. Not sure on this. Your installer should fix it.

    I have a very tall red brick fireplace and it was sealed or something that made it look very shinny. Over the years it has turned a golden color and has started to flake off. Is there something I can put on it to take it all off and just have natural brick.

    I used sealer stripper to remove the old sealer from the brick pavers and still has little white haze on them. I used the stuff few times and pressure washed with 3100 psi pressure cleaner and still can not get rid of that white haze. What else can I do to get rid of it.

      Not possible to remove them. Try blending with a wet look sealer.

    ok, i will take a picture tomorrow. They are light scratches, but visible. What about an efflorescence or muriatic solution?

    does anyone have any suggestions on how to remove scratches in driveway pavers from snow removal ?

      You cannot remove scratches form concrete pavers. It may be possible to have them blend in though with a wet look sealer. Best to post a picture of the severity of the scratches.

    16 years old brick pavers are faded with Florida sun even after regular sealing. What sealer will restore some colors with semi gloss wet look and easy to apply with no yellowing or white film with time.

    Is there anything I can use that would not be slippery after power washing my pavers on my patio. They look a little duller after powerwashing

    George Munas:
    I waited too long and some of the stripper is staying behind. Can I use a second coat of stripper and pressure wash it off faster to help get rid of some that dried?

    You can try that. Also, this will help to remove stripper residue:
