The seal creates an invisible layer on top of the pavers that repels water, oil and anything else you might accidentally drop, as long as you wash them as soon as you notice it. When you apply a sealant to pavers, it gives them a clean, damp appearance with a glossy finish, depending on the finish of the sealant you use. It will not alter the color of the paving stone, but will highlight the tone of the material and improve the color of the pavers. In addition, the color will continue to look new because sealants provide protection against UV rays that can cause discoloration.
