💫 Typically a top choice for driveways, walkways, and patios. Pavers have high visual appeal while providing a long-lasting, beautiful hardscape solution.
On top of complementing a wide variety of architectural styles and outdoor themes, they also happen to be slip-resistant and skid-resistant. Surprisingly, for all their benefits, they are also quite low maintenance compared to other hardscape options. Durable and easy to replace, concrete pavers are made to last.
Manufactured under consistent, ideal conditions, pavers are significantly stronger than concrete. Pavers typically have a pounds per square Inch (or PSI) of 8000, compared to concrete which has a PSI of 4000.
💥 When installed properly, pavers are tightly fitted, individually placed over a sand bed and a compacted aggregate base with a moisture barrier. Polymeric Sand (or more commonly known as Polysand) is used to ‘fill’ in the space between each paver, then watered down to activate the glue and bond the sand to seal and harden.
AJ’s recommends reapplying or filling in Polysand every 1 to 3 years to continue to prevent washout, cracks, and the formation of weeds and grass between paving stones. This also helps to prevent water seeping in and compromising the integrity of the base.
Since each piece is individually placed, should any movement and shifting occur over time, the affected pavers can be removed, corrections made and reinstalled without the entire patio having to be removed. Should a paver crack, they can be replaced without patches or awkward lines.
Overall, pavers are amazingly easy to care for and maintain. Ensure the installer is a trained professional!
