Cleaning, Sanding, Sealing - What The Job Entails:
Sealing a block paved patio or driveway has many benefits, over and above looking elegant and stylish! A quality sealer will also protect and secure your paving from the elements and help to reduce usage wear and tear. Block paving is expensive, so sealing it is a sensible thing to do to protect your investment. Block paving can protect your paving from stains such as oil leaks from cars, helps to prevent algae and weeds from growing, lengthens the lifespan of the driveway by binding the jointing sand used and reduces the level of fading and wear, preserving the colour of your paving.
Cleaning and sealing a driveway will involve using a pressure washer to remove all traces of weeds, algae and any old stains. Then once the driveway is completely dry and clean, joints are refilled with kiln dried sand if required and all excess sand is removed from the surface. Finally, the sealer is applied using a brush, roller or a squeegee, as per manufacturer’s instructions.
You may want to consider cleaning and updating other areas of your home at the same time. The companies which offer driveway cleaning and sealing services will often also offer other brick & masonry cleaning services, which will be ideal for any walls which border the driveway to finish the job nicely - a sparkling clean drive bordered by grubby walls will not look great!
Driveway cleaning, sanding and sealing will typically cost between £8.50 and £12.50 per square metre. but the prices quoted will vary with location, the type of sealant and the size of the drive. The type of sealant used makes a big difference to the price, the most expensive of the sealants on offer is "Resiblock", but this product comes highly recommended.
Lichen on sandstone

Lichens on block paving

Dealing with Lichens
The black (sometimes white) spots are almost always a lichen, pronounced ly-ken in most places, but as lit-chen by the sort of awkward sod who revels in perversity for the sake of it. Other than disfiguring paving in the damper parts of Britain and Ireland, their main claim to fame is that they are a favourite nibble of Reindeer. However, it has not been possible, so far, to prove that their prevalence on the patios of these islands is in anyway related to the lack of the aforesaid grazing Reindeer.
Lichens are strange things. They are symbionts, which means they are two different organisms living in sin, if you will. There is a bit that does the photosynthesis business which is usually some form of algae or bacteria, and this gets into a mutually beneficial relationship with a fungus, which functions as an anchor as well as acquiring minerals from whatever it is the lichen is growing on. The fungus sends little fungussy rootlets, known as hyphae, down into the substrate, namely the paving or walling, and such is the tenacity of these things that it's damned near impossible to shift them. They form a 'crustose' growth, which means they are flat and stick like the proverbial to a blanket.
As hundreds, if not thousands of visitors to this site have commented, brushing, scrubbing, and even power-washing can have little effect on the disfiguring little spots, and the longer they are left unchallenged, the bigger they get.
Which landscaping materials are affected?
In theory, all paving and walling materials are susceptible, but some are more susceptible than others. The exponential growth in the use of imported stone for paving in recent years has provided a wonderful new opportunity for lichen. Although they can and do set up residence on concrete paving , it wouldn't naturally be their first choice. What they like is a nice, porous, easily penetrated sedimentary stone, which is what we've been providing for them in abundance with the mass installation of imported sandstone paving.The limestones imported from the same part of the world are less affected, but not immune, and the various granites and basalts from wherever are much more resistant, due to their crystalline rather than granular structure. As mentioned, concrete products are liable to colonisation by these airborne squatters, but the type of concrete will determine just how badly affected is any particular paving. Wet-cast products with a relatively low cement content are noticeably more prone to lichens than cement-rich pressed pavers.
Decorative concrete is fairly resistant as long as the seal coat is intact and in good condition. Tarmacadam , asphalt and resin-bound surfacing is less commonly affected, but again, it is not unknown.
It has been pointed out that cement mortar joints are rarely colonised, but it's uncertain whether this is actually true or whether simple weathering and erosion of the jointing doesn't give the lichens long enough to set up camp.
