PAVERS

 

What are Pavers?

 

Otherwise known as; Landscape Pavers, Interlocking Pavers, Concrete Pavers and Brick Pavers are flat pieces of stone, concrete, clay or an aggregate of mixed material. They are typically used in the construction of patios, walkways, driveways, pool decks and outdoor seating areas. Some unique and beneficial facts about pavers are:

 

• Durability – 50 year + life expectancy 

• No cracking or breaking 

• 3 times stronger than poured or stamped concrete (concrete pavers)

• Perfect for freeze-thaw conditions 

• Safe, non-skid surface 

• Easy installation

 

Add beauty and value to your outdoor living area with our pavers!

 

Whether you need a new driveway for a contemporary home, or a pool deck with a casual appearance, interlocking pavers are a cost-effective choice. Pavers require minimum maintenance and have a long life. Limited by only your imagination pavers are functional and add an aesthetic look to your outdoor flooring solution.

 

Hint: When choosing from our wide selection of pavers, consider the following:

 

Tumbled or non-tumbled. A tumbled paver provides a softer, Old World look while a non-tumbled paver is crisper with a sharper edge — perfect for a contemporary home.

 

Shape and pattern. You can create a variety of patterns from squares, rectangles, octagons and other specialty shapes.

 

Color. The final step is usually color. Pavers are available in many colors to match your home setting.

PAVER ACCESSORIES

 

POLYMERIC SAND

 

Use this mix of sand and polymers between pavers to prevent weeds, insect penetration and joint erosion. Activate dry mix with water. Available in tan or gray. Use regular grade for normal traffic areas and HP grade for wider joints and/or heavier traffic areas such as pool decks and sloped driveways, as well as in colder weather.

 

EDGE RESTRAINT

 

Edge restraint keeps pavers from shifting sideways. They are available in varying heights and lengths. Choose from aluminum or plastic, rigid or flexible, to suit your project. Edge restraint also stops grass from growing into pavers.

 

CLEANERS

 

Cleaners keep your pavers looking great. Use to remove efflorescence — a white haze that may form on pavers — and ground-in dirt. Other cleaners are available to help remove paint and tar.

 

SEALERS

 

Sealers help to preserve the original beauty of pavers as well as to discourage staining. Some sealers enhance the color of the paver while others are hardly noticeable but are used to protect the paver.

 

SANDLOCK™

 

Mix Sandlock with sand or screening of your color choice. Use between pavers to deter weed growth and insect infestation.

 

SPIKES

 

Use spikes to hold edge restraint in place. Place a spike every two feet in a straight area, every foot on curves and closer in corners and sharp curves.

 

ADHESIVES

 

Available in small and large tubs to bond caps — the top layer of a wall — and to secure wall blocks and pavers to adjoining surfaces. Easy to apply with a caulk gun.
