1 YEAR (Sealer Warranty for Pavers)
For 1 year from the date of sealing, Century Painting & More offers a “water bead guarantee” and will repair at no charge all defects deemed by Century Painting & More due to workmanship or materials.
Important: This warranty excludes damages caused by failure of any previous coating/sealer, failure of the substratum, or damage caused by customer abuse or neglect. Slate, Flagstone and any other natural stone which the customer requires to be sealed is not covered by the warranty. “Efflorescence” is not covered by this warranty, but is occasionally covered by the builder. According to the “ICPI” (interlocking concrete pavement institute), efflorescence is a natural process, in which a random white haze may appear on the surface of the brick, which is caused by lime or a water soluble calcium oxide that rises to the surface after repeated saturation due to rain or sprinklers. Efflorescence does not affect the integrity of the bricks and will usually resolve itself with time and exposure to the elements.”) The proper sealing of concrete brick pavers can either retard or stop completely the efflorescence process due to the moisture protection achieved by the sealing process. However, this warranty does not state or imply that efflorescence will stop as a result of the sealing process.
In addition, some brick pavers lie in a heavily moisture ridden substratum (due to improper drainage) which may cause the bricks to retain moisture and cloud the bricks as well as cause growth of mold, mildew or growth. Only proper drainage will correct the problem and is not the responsibility of Century Painting & More.
We cannot guarantee that sand will not crack from expansion and contraction. This is out of our control.
The customer understands that the sealing is only as good as the quality and condition of the bricks that are being sealed. No claim is expressed or implied that we can totally remove all stains prior to application. We remove as much as is possible with today’s technology, yet some stains such as paint, oils and efflorescence are set deep into the pores of the bricks making total removal impossible without serious damage to the delicate patina of the bricks. Some stains can only be removed by having the bricks replaced manually… (Make sure that the replacement bricks are a close match to the originals in their unsealed state).
In addition, no claim is implied on how long the sealer will last (condition, quality and how well the pavers are maintained can affect durability). During the course of normal use as well as Installations exposed to driving winds or runoff your pavers may lose some joint sand that can be simply replenished with dry sand. The paver sand may settle in some areas to the bottom of the paver joint. In addition as a result of heavy rainfall as well as direct contact from pressure washing, water hoses and sprinklers, some of the joint sand may become loose or wash out. This is normal and cannot be avoided. Note that the sealer can be slippery in some cases, which we cannot be liable for. This is the only warranty given by the warrantor.
