We Provide Superior Paving Options
Q: what is the difference between “clay pavers and concrete pavers”?
A: Clay pavers are made with real clay that is mixed, extruded and baked in a kiln at very high temperatures and concrete pavers are made with a special blend of concrete and coloring that is compacted at very high pressures and a special machine.
Q: which type of paver is better?
A: there is very little difference between pavers in general. The important difference is the maker of the pavers. Paving materials can vary from one manufacturer to the next. The qualities that make a paver perfect are it’s compressive strength, water absorption rate and abrasion index.
Q: what happens if I have to do a repair job below the paving? Does it leave and unsightly patch mark?
A:No, that is one of the benefits to installing flexible paving. Because all interlocking paving is flexible it can also resist cracking. Unlike cement that always cracks everywhere, pavers don’t crack and if for some reason you have a problem with a paver, it’s very easy to take it out and replace it with a new paver, where you cannot do this with cement. Their is no demolition involved.
Q:can you do any other types of specialty masonry?
A: Yes, our tradesmen are fully trained masonry professionals. We specialize in matching almost any material and seamlessly installing it so that the repair is undue table in most cases.
Q: what does “interlocking paving” mean?
A: interlocking paving is a misleading term. What actually constitutes interlocking is really a dynamic function containing three different components. They are “rotational interlock” (resistance to tipping) “horizontal interlock” (resistance to spreading) “vertical interlock” (resistance to sinking). So, that means for lasting quality you need good containment, good sub base and proper paver thickness. Thicker pavers for driveways, thinner pavers for patios.
Q: after you’re done paving the work surfaces, should I seal it?
A: yes, it protects it from leaky cars that might leave oil stains and it stays cleaner for much longer if you seal it right away before it has a chance to get stained. Remember when it’s sealed it only takes a hose to clean it off. We use breathable, environmentally safe sealers that protect against just about anything. Another benefit for sealing your pavers, is that the sealer soaks into the sand between the pavers and hardens the sand, so the rain doesn’t wash out the sand into the pool or at the bottom of your driveway etc.
Q: what can be done to restore ugly faded old concrete?
A: in most situations, faded concrete can be renewed by recoloring it using various Tints & Stains.
