Frequently Asked Questions

How long after installation can I use my patio or driveway?
As soon as the installation steps are completed, including compaction and the sweeping in of the joint sand. For driveways, make sure you give at least 24 hours before you drive on the border of the newly installed driveway so the concrete border has ample time to dry.
Can I use pavers around my swimming pool?
Definitely! Pavers not only will add beauty to your surrounding pool, they will also provide a slip resistance surface to walk on. Pavers are also convenient when you have to service the area around your pool, you can easily lift and relay the pavers.
How can I control the ants and weeds that may grow between the pavers?
You need to first know, if your pavers were properly installed with a good amount of base, that the weeds are growing from the top down, not the bottom up. This happens because of the wind blown seeds from surrounding weeds. One way to control ants and weeds is to seal the pavers. You can also use round-up or an insecticide such as Andro to get the hard to kill weeds and ant hills. Please apply according to the directions. This will help prevent damage to the pavers.
How do pavers compare with other paving or decking material?
During the lifetime of your pavers, they will be aesthetically pleasing, durable and cost effective.
Can I replace my pavers if something was to chip or damage them?
Absolutely! A paver can be pried out easily with two flat screwdrivers and a new paver can then be inserted. You might need to use a rubber mallet to fit the paver back into the space. It is recommended to purchase a few extra pavers so that you are insured to match the color exactly if you need to replace one.
To seal or not to seal the pavers?
It is not necessary to seal the pavers. Sealing does however retard fading the color of the pavers and provides a measure of protection from some stains. Before sealing, pavers must be clean and dry. It is recommended that you wait at least 30 days after installation before sealing. Once sealed, you will need to reseal approximately every three to five years.
Interlocking Pavers vs Concrete
Pavers are environmentally friendly. If you have an underground repair to do, you can simply remove the pavers in the effected area, complete the repair and replace the pavers. This process is not so easy with permenant concrete. Because pavers are a flexible pavement, you will not have surface cracks that usually occur with the use of regular concrete, AND, interlocking pavers add resale value to your home. They are aesthetically pleasing and create a great curb appeal.
How do I keep my pavers clean?
There are products available that are specifically made for cleaning pavers. You can use a pressure washer on pavers but do not use more than 1,000 to 1,200 psi of pressure or you could cause damage to the paver surface. If you have serious stains you should consider hiring a professional.
Are brick pavers high maintenance?
No. Most brick pavers only require power washing and replacing any joint sand that has washed away, as needed. This is a simple process that is completed in a short time.
How do I fix a low spot?
Due to weather conditions there can be some settling of the pavers. If this happens, just pop out one brick using two flathead screwdrivers, remove the surrounding bricks, fill the low area with aggregate, tamp to make level and put bricks back in. It is a very simple fix.
