9. Sealing and Maintenance
9.1 Sealing of Paving and Natural Stone Goods are recommended for the maintenance and long-term care of products. Quality Exteriors have a recommended range with instructions on DIY sealing and cleaning. Quality Exteriors do not accept liability or responsibility for any other sealing or cleaning products that may be used and not recommended.
9.2 Depending on traffic volume, UV exposure, weather conditions, rainwater control from dripping off a home’s roofline or gutter drip line, pool cage railings dripping, garden hose spigots, downspouts pouring directly on the surface & many other surrounding environmental or natural factors can contribute, it is very likely that aggregate will start to show through some products. This loss of the thin top layer of the product is caused by that, and other avenues of erosion. Quality Exteriors are NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY EROSION OF PRODUCTS! Those factors are out of our control.
9.3 Goods supplied to the Purchaser are not returnable. Quality Exteriors are not required to provide a refund or replacement if you change your mind. If the product has a problem and has been reported to Quality Exteriors within 48 hours from collection and prior to installation or sealing we can assist with a refund or replacement as necessary.
9.4 It is the Purchaser’s responsibility to ensure that all applicable health, safety and environment regulations are observed and other appropriate steps taken in relation to the storage, handling, transport, disposal and the use of the sealing and cleaning Goods and potential hazards and the relevant information relating to the sealing and cleaning of Goods
9.5 The Purchaser agrees to follow and abide by the instructions on the Product Data Sheet provided with the recommended sealing and cleaning products. This includes doing a test patch on the product prior to installation of the sealer or cleaner. Quality Exteriors are not liable or responsible for the quality of sealing installation. It is the sellers responsibility to follow all provided instructions.

9.7 Sealing pavers will not stop weeds or mould. This is one of the biggest misconceptions in the paver sealing industry.
10.1 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 water-soluble calcium oxide that rises to the surface after repeated saturations 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. Oftentimes, you will find areas undercover, or covered patios/entryways will usually experience efflorescence more so than areas exposed to the elements, as rainwater soaks into the brick and the sun evaporates that water, it allows the efflorescence to naturally ‘purge’ out of the individual bricks, and come to the surface, whereas brick paver surfaces that are out of the elements will retain that efflorescence for a longer period of time.
Sometimes, the introduction of water from our pressure cleaning can spark that efflorescence, and bring it to the surface. This will naturally pass on its own, and a great way to expedite that will be to soak the area down with water often, to allow that moisture to soak into the brick, and it will naturally evaporate out. Using a breathable sealer as we use, this efflorescence will have the ability to evaporate out over time.
There is no way to stop this from happening, as it happens with every cement-based product unless chemically treated during the time of manufacturing.
11.1 WE DO NOT GUARANTEE 100% removal of any stains on our products. Some products are Stain Resistant, and sealing can enhance these repellent properties but there are no products that are STAIN FREE. Please see our Stain Removal Recommendations and talk to us about Stain Protector products.
12. Natural Stone
12.1All natural stone products are a gift of Mother Nature. As a result, it is an inherent characteristic of all these natural formed products that there will be variations in colour, shade, pattern, veining and texture. The stone may also have pits, fissures and fragmentation which are not apparent in images, samples or in previous installations.
Natural stone is porous and the level of porosity will vary from one stone to another. Regardless the level of porosity, staining will occur especially if the stone is not sealed and protected correctly. Please ask our staff for information on sealing products suitable for your product. Quality Exteriors expressly excludes all responsibility and liability for any staining or damage caused or partially caused, or contributed to, by inadequate sealing or inappropriate sealing products/methods.
Quality Exteriors reserves the right to refuse to accept any return of product.
