    Got a customer that wants his patio cleaned and sealed. It has been over a year since installation.

    Problem is he wants a few pavers pulled up and re-leveled so I have to install new polysand.

    Can I pull pavers, re-level and polysand on a Thursday and then clean and seal on a Friday?

    I am using all techniseal products....

    I'd wait for a stretch of good weather. Re-level & poly on a Wed. morning. Use a little pump spray bottle to hit the joints you just filled with poly. That would give you almost 48 hours for the polysand to really set up. Friday morning start to clean them going easy around the pavers you re-leveled. If it dries up nice after a few hours seal them. I like the pavers to be DRY before I seal, so again for me depending on the day (sun, temp) I might wait till Saturday to seal. Not sure from the pics how much sun that patio gets. Good luck.

    Techniseal recommends to wait 30 days to seal after installing the polymeric sand.
