What Should You Do When You Decide To Build A Brick Pavers Patio?

July 10th, 2009

The first step to a brick paver patio is deciding on a design that will compliment the rest of your house. That includes the shape of the brick, the color and the layout they will be installed. Also, have in mind that you want to have a good, comfortable, size patio to accommodate your family, friends, or to just have a table and a few chairs. Your new patio needs to be welcoming!

Because installing brick pavers can be a very complex and detailed job, you will definitely want to have a professional do it for you. There are a few steps to having that beautiful patio you have planned and designed in your head, such as; the excavation, the compaction of subsoil, the base preparation, and finally, laying the bricks correctly and cutting the edges when needed.
 
The excavation, for instance, needs to be precise. A very steady flat bottom needs to be formed for the water to get past the pavers and into the base preparation, otherwise the water will sit and form puddles, making the surface soft and easy to deform. The depth of the excavation will depend of what kind of patio installation you want, and also the location of your home. In addition to that, the thickness of the pavers is very important. For example, a driveway cannot have one inch pavers installed, because it will soon be damaged or broken.

Having a nice brick paver patio, driveway, or pool deck done correctly does take quite some work and precision, and here at NRICARDO’S BRICK PAVERS, an experienced and certified company, you will get all that . You will be guided throughout your project and we will provide you a work with quality and  amazing results.

Installing Concrete Brick Pavers. Here’s the right way.

October 7th, 2007

Installation. It is recommended that installation be performed by experienced contractors who hold a current certificate in the ICPI Concrete Paver Installer Certification Program. Contractors holding this certificate have been instructed and tested on knowledge of interlocking concrete pavement construction

The easiest way to maintain joint consistency during paving is by the “click and drop” method. This method will create a consistent joint of about 1/16 in. to 1/8 in. (2–3 mm).

Procedure:

• While holding a paver, the bottom 1/4 in.–1/2 in. (7–13 mm) should click firmly against the top portion of the sides of the pavers already in the sand.

• Don’t click the pavers on the sand so hard that they move.

• Release grip, dropping the paver an inch or so (25–30 mm) directly downward.

 

We pave driveways, pool decks, side walks,
patios, walkways, steps, walks and other custom designs.
