Can I have interlock concrete pavers installed on my driveway?
Yes, of course! Our standard 2 3/8” thick paver (60mm) works perfectly for light vehicles like cars and/or pickup trucks.
Do concrete pavers need to be sealed?
No, concrete pavers are very durable. However, sealing them may bring out the color and help prevent staining. Contact us for recommendations before you go ahead and do this on your own.
If pavers must be removed to handle underground repairs, can I put them back in place afterward?
Yes, definitely! Concrete pavers are not like other pavements and can easily be removed and replaced without changing the look or functionality.
How soon after installation would it be safe to use my patio or driveway?
Once your pavers are properly installed, and the project is finished, you can use your patio and/or driveway immediately.
Are pavers slippery?
No, not at all because they have a textured surface that provides traction when used for walkways, driveways and around swimming pools, even when wet. In fact, concrete pavers are highly recommended for this very reason.
Would concrete paving stones be better than other materials for my deck?
Yes, concrete paving stones are known for maintaining their appearance and durability for a longer period of time than most other deck materials.
What makes interlocking concrete pavers the perfect pavement?
When these are properly installed, the pavement is firm but has the flexibility you need. The joints between each paver allow your patio, walkway, driveway, etc. to move as needed without cracking. Furthermore, they can be removed quite easily to access underground pipes or utilities or to repair or replace them. Concrete pavers require very little in the way of maintenance, unlike asphalt. They do not need regular sealing or replacement.
How does patterned or stamped concrete compare with concrete pavers?
Concrete pavers are definitely stronger than plain or stamped concrete. Concrete pavements that come with a pattern are simply slabs of embossed concrete. Furthermore, repairing individual slabs or underground pipes are much more difficult than with pavers, therefore more costly. Repairs can also result in an unattractive looking patch.
Would you recommend concrete paving stones be placed around my swimming pool?
Yes, most definitely! They will certainly enhance your pool area while providing a slip resistant surface that is safe to walk on even when wet. Pavers can also easily be removed and replaced if you should require any service beneath your pool deck. We would recommend using Polymeric sand between the joints rather than traditional jointing sand. This will prevent the sand from washing out into the pool or onto other areas close by.
I just got pavers and it looks like there is a film on top. How do I remove it?
This is a layer of efflorescence, which comes from moisture in the air combined with natural salts that have settled on the surface. Our advice is to do nothing. Just let it weather naturally on its own. If you can’t wait and want to remove the film yourself, you can use a dry brush and rinse with water, or light water blasting. You can also use premixed chemical detergents and flush with clean water.
How would you compare concrete pavers to clay pavers?
Clay pavers usually just come in shades of red as well as reddish brown. They are also limited in the number of shapes you can choose from. Because clay pavers usually need a concrete base and their dimensions tend to be inconsistent, installing them takes longer and costs more than installing concrete pavers. Clay pavers also have irregular surfaces, causing them to chip and become easily damaged, especially on the edges. By comparison, we offer concrete pavers in many different colors and shapes, with each one made according to the highest quality standards. Concrete paving stones are made to resist cracking and damage caused by freeze/thaw conditions and salt.
What can be done if my pavers become stained or somehow damaged?
There are many different things that can cause pavers to become stained. Some stains can easily be removed with common household cleaning products. More difficult stains may require industrial chemicals to be removed. Great care must be taken when using these chemicals. This is why a professional cleaning contractor should be consulted before doing this on your own. One of the benefits of concrete pavers is that you can remove individual units and easily replace them if they become stained or damaged. You would first dig out the sand around the stained or damaged paver. Next, use a flat-head screwdriver or Paver Puller to gently rock the paver back and forth until it loosens up. When it is loose enough, just lift it out and insert the new paver, replacing the sand in the joint. Using a rubber mallet, you can then compact the paver until it is flush with the others.
If I don’t have Polymeric sand in my patio, walkway or driveway, how do I get rid of the weeds?
You can apply vegetation killer as directed to get rid of the weeds.
What can I do to prevent weeds from sprouting up within the joints?
Polymeric sand is used in the joints. This type of sand remains stable and in place, unlike traditional jointing sand. It is very effective at resisting erosion caused by wind, frost, rain and suction. Additionally, it prevents weeds from growing as well as preventing infestations of insects. Polymeric sand stays flexible so it can adjust to the movements of slabs or pavers without cracking.
