New Masonry Cleaning Issues
This program will be used to acquaint the participant with useful knowledge that can be used to assure a project once completed will highlight their design efforts.

Hardscape Cleaning and Maintenance
Concrete and clay pavers, along with retaining walls should be treated the same as vertical masonry substrates and cleaned post-installation. We will look at best-practices to support proper drainage that will help prevent moisture from staying in the hardscape unit. We will also look at cleaning hardscape units post-installation and removing water hydration staining that can occur prior to installation. Once the hardscape units have been properly cleaned post-installation, maintenance schedules will be necessary to keep them looking optimal for many years.
