Yes. When conducting landscape construction that involves digging or excavation, it’s essential to obtain locates for gas, electrical, and other utilities to ensure safety and compliance with regulations. These locates help identify the underground infrastructure, such as gas lines, electrical cables, water pipes, and communication lines, to prevent accidental damage during the construction process. Our team will take care of the locate obtaining process on your behalf, so sit back and relax while we handle it!

We understand that unexpected issues or delays can occur during landscaping projects. Our approach is to communicate transparently with clients, keeping them informed about any challenges that arise and discussing potential solutions promptly. We have protocols in place to address unforeseen circumstances efficiently, whether it’s adjusting the timeline, reallocating resources, or finding alternative solutions to keep the project on track. Our goal is to minimize disruptions and ensure that the project is completed to the client’s satisfaction, even in the face of unexpected challenges.

Paver Restoration & Sealing

At Seal-It, we apply all our commercial-grade sealers using a high pressurized spray system. This allows for an even application, enhanced look and long lasting finish. We avoid rolling on sealers as this method often leads to issues including unevenness, streak marks, and an overall messier job.

We use state-of-the-art masking technology which ensures the cleanest edge possible, keeping the sealer where it belongs. Rest assured with our mess-free guarantee! 

We only use the highest quality commercial-grade materials. Along with this, we thoroughly clean surfaces and apply the necessary amount of coats to ensure a finish that will last between 1 and 2 years. Factors that might affect the longevity of the sealer are that which result from general wear and tear, such as excessive vehicle or foot traffic, and severe weather conditions.

No, and that is because all our sealers are applied with a heavy-duty mix of slip-resistant compound!

Generally, when it comes to seal coating, there is not really a specific temperature that is required, so long as the weather is over 10 degrees Celsius. That means anytime from Spring to Fall! 

Regular sealing protects your investment and keeps your property looking great! Generally, you want to re-seal at least every 1 – 2 years to keep your surface in good shape. Avoid holding off for too many years, as eventually it could be too late with evidence of visible damage such as cracking and discolouration. 

It varies. The cost of sealing depends on a variety of factors including:

  • Total square footage

  • The last time it was sealed (the severity of discolouration), which determines the amount of coats needed 

  • How dirty is the surface and are there any stains that need to be removed?

  • Are there any repairs, minor OR major, required to be completed before sealing?

Although in some cases we may ballpark an estimate over the phone, in order to provide an accurate quote, a SIPS representative will have to visit your property to assess all of the above factors.

At Seal It, we ensure to use the highest quality commercial grade products and materials available. That ensures us as certified applicators, to be able to stand behind our installation as well as the product used.

A quality polymeric sand installation can last anywhere from three to five years, depending on factors such as weather conditions, foot traffic, and maintenance practices. With our in-house maintenance services, including polymeric sand replacement and surface sealing every 2 to 3 years, weeds will be effectively prevented from growing through the pavers. This proactive approach ensures the long-term integrity and aesthetic appeal of your project, providing lasting satisfaction and peace of mind.

Typically, most residential landscape projects do not require a permit, so long as nothing structural such as a deck, pool or pavilion are being built. However, if permits are required, our team will ensure to handle the entire permit application and acquisition process.

We advise waiting at least 1 year after the initial paver installation to allow for the release of efflorescence before sealing. Following this period, regular sealing every 2 to 3 years is recommended to maintain the pavers’ integrity and appearance. You can rely on our in-house maintenance and sealing services to streamline this process and ensure optimal long-term performance for your project.

These spots are known as efflorescence, which is a natural process where water-soluble salts present in materials like concrete, brick, or pavers migrate to the surface and form a white, powdery residue when the water evaporates. It commonly occurs during the curing process or when moisture interacts with the material, often appearing on the surface of newly installed pavers. Efflorescence is a common occurrence, and it typically diminishes naturally within about a year after installation as the salts leach out of the pavers.

The duration of landscape construction projects depends on factors like the size and complexity of the project, weather conditions, and the availability of materials. A small project might take a few days to complete, while larger projects could take several weeks.

Regular maintenance is crucial to preserve the beauty and functionality of your landscape. This may include tasks such as watering, pruning, mulching, fertilizing, and seasonal cleanup, along with power-washing and specific routine maintenance. We’ll work closely with you to create a detailed maintenance plan tailored to your project’s specific needs, ensuring its sustained brilliance and minimizing the risk of premature aging or damage. Our goal is to provide peace of mind knowing that your investment will remain pristine for years to come.
