This is the Good Neighbor Podcast, the place where local businesses and neighbors come together. I'm your host, Charlie McDermott. Welcome to episode number 85 of the Good Neighbor Podcast. And today we have Jeff Evers. Now Jeff is the owner of Paver Protectors, and who knew that pavers needed protection other than our guest today. Jeff, Jeff, how you doing?
I'm doing good. How are you doing Charlie?
I'm doing real good, man. I really appreciate you spending time with us. So tell us all about Paver Protectors.
Appreciate you having me on. It's been a real pleasure to listen to your podcast and hear all the different businesses. And so basically I started my business nine years ago. I noticed that there's a need for paver sealing in Florida. We do service Lee, Collier, and Charlotte counties. And our office is located here in Fort Myers. We're currently running five crews to keep up with the demand here.
And what we do is brick paver cleaning and sealing as well as maintain them. But we've got a maintenance program where we maintain pavers for people so that they look good at all times, keep the maintenance up on them. And in the process of coming up with these things, to help our customers, we developed our own line of sealers that we use. We don't distribute them. They're basically made just for us and they give...they offer superior color enhancement and protection to the pavers. And the best part of our sealers is they're breathable.
So in Florida, the high humidity levels and water levels, you can get trapped moisture underneath the sealer. Our sealers allow the pavers to breathe and so you don't get that trapped, white, milky look underneath the pavers.
So is that what happens when I see driveways, I guess in my neighborhood with that white, milky sheen or whatever you want to call it? Okay.
Yeah, that's correct.
Alright, so for someone who has no idea about what this whole process is about. So...driveways... In an ideal world, we should after guess what's, what am I trying to say? The maintenance program...is it a once and done thing? Is it...what happens if you don't seal it? Can you get into some different possibilities there?
