Preparation of Uncoated Pavers, Brick or Natural Stone

Skill:  Novice DIY'er

A great looking finish begins with the right start. Following the proper prep procedures will dramatically affect the look and longevity of your finished project.

For Best Results:

For expert guidance on prepping your uncoated pavers, brick or natural stone surfaces, refer to our how-to steps below.

For your safety, please wear protective clothing, eye goggles, and acid-resistant rubber gloves and footwear.

Suggested Supplies

  • Broom (Stiff Bristle)
  • Rags
  • Scrub Brush
  • Protective Apparel
  • Hose
  • Chemical Resistant Gloves
  • High pressure Nozzle
  • Mop
Step 1

Make sure the surface is clean. Wipe up all excess oil and grease spills. Scrape and sweep away dirt and other loose contaminants from the surface.

Step 2

Clean and degrease the surface. Pour BEHR PREMIUM Concrete & Masonry Degreaser & Cleaner onto your surface using a plastic watering can. This will evenly distribute the product.

TIP:
Use the product at full strength for tough stains and dilluted for general cleaning
Step 3

Work the Degreaser and Cleaner into the surface using a stiff bristled, non-metal brush or broom. Allow the product to remain on the surface for 10-20 minutes then vigorously scrub the surface. DO NOT allow the surface to dry.

Step 4

Rinse the surface thoroughly with fresh water, while scrubbing at the same time to properly remove remaining residue. Pressure wash for best results.

TIP:
After application, thoroughly saturate surrounding grass and plants with fresh water.
Step 5

Remove excess water with a non-metal squeegee or mop. Prevent all rinse solution from entering the storm drains. Once the surface is clean and dry, it can be sealed.
