Damaged Pavers?

Did some pressure washing to a paver entrance way and did some "scarring" damage.
Is there anything I can do or use to remove the squiggly lines I created?

Let them get dirty again? You probably blasted too hard and clean the "pores" of the pavers in those areas.

Thanks Tyler
So, do you think they are damaged or just need to get weathered?

Without pics, I would assume they just need to get weathered again. I've seen this happen before.

Doubt it. You probably did more than "clean the pores" Pressure washing does damage to almost anything it comes in contact with if you the water flow is not proper. Cant tell for sure but I would most likely be replacing the pavers. If you tell the customer that they need to let them get dirty again they are going to laugh you right out of the neighborhood. Especially since were there to clean it, then to let them to get dirty to look better....uh...dunno bout that!

Could you use a wider nozzle, hit it again, and "smooth out" the scarring?
