    When it’s time to service your hardscape, one of the most common questions comes up – should you take the DIY route, or hire a professional? Even though the idea of rolling up your sleeves and knocking out another home project might be alluring, there’s a list of good reasons why you might want to reconsider adding this one to your to-do list and leave it to a pro instead.

    Expertise in handling hardscaping isn’t something you can get overnight. You can’t even get it in a whole weekend of intensive YouTube tutorials. Professionals are fully educated on the right tools to use, the right pressures to use for various surfaces in various conditions, and the best products and mixtures to use to get the job done without causing any damage to nearby flora and fauna.

    This knowledge and practical experience are really what you’re hiring for when you work with a pro. Let’s go a little deeper into the subject, and find out why hiring a pro is the best move.

    Why Hire a Professional to Service Your Hardscape?

    Professional hardscape service providers will have extensive experience and knowledge in the field. This will enable them to more easily and reliably identify and address minor issues before they grow into major issues that require costly repairs. A well-trained eye can spot these problem areas relatively quickly, and a skilled technician will be able to resolve them effectively.

    Hardscape damage often occurs not from neglect, but from actively caring for the surface improperly. Improper cleaning techniques can cause far more damage than just ignoring the area for a few seasons. Using equipment that cleans with too much pressure can cause cracks and splits while using the wrong cleaning products or mixtures can discolor or even begin to erode many surfaces.

    Partnering with a professional means you’ll have someone well versed in all of these facets of hardscaping care, and will already know how to avoid them, simply as a matter of their daily duties in their profession. They’ll help keep your hardscaping functional and looking pristine for many years to come.

    One final benefit of leveraging a professional is time. There are few things more valuable than time, and while a DIY approach may have a certain satisfaction to it, and it may save you a little money, it’s likely going to take significantly longer than a professional. Factor in the time you’ll spend learning about it, getting the equipment, and more, and the cost to hire a pro is a bargain in comparison.
