Most contractors start by utilizing either aluminum or plastic restraining systems to hold your paver patio project in place. This technique will lead to failure. When we install your paver patio projects, unlike our patio contractors’ installation process. We will install a concrete footer package to form the edge of your interlocking patio. When we have poured the concrete footer around your paver patio project, this will give you support that no other methodology will compete with. Upon the concrete footer, we will install concrete pavers by utilizing paver adhesive on the footing of the perimeter of your patio. This method locks the patio and place. Once the concrete paver edge has been installed, we will excavate the center proportion of your patio and install 4 inches of 21 A aggregate tamped down with a plate tamper. Once a firm foundation for your paver patio has been installed, we will then top this off with about 1 inch of concrete sand. Then your choice of pavers will be installed on this base. The final step is to install polymeric sand.
