Frequently Asked Questions
Interlock ensures that pavers do not move independently from the other pavers surrounding it. The answer to the sturdiness of this pavement system is the locking of the pavers creates a load to be spread over a larger area rather than where pressure and force is applied.
The elements incorporate a base, bedding sand, concrete pavers with sand in their joints, and an edging that contains the pavers at the perimeter.
The most ideal method to fix damaged pavers is actually to replace them. However if the damage consists of stains, a good solution would be to flip the stained pavers over.
Pavers do not tend to be slippery. Whether the ground is dry or wet, the texture of the pavers provides superb grip for both vehicles and pedestrians.

If the concrete is in great condition (meaning no cracking or deterioration), it is certainly possible to install pavers over concrete. The existing concrete pad must slope away from any structures to allow for drainage and must have a drainage layer below the pavers.
If you choose to seal your pavers, we recommend resealing them every 3-5 years as it does tend to wear out over time.
Metal blades on snow plows may scratch pavers’ surface. When shovelling the driveway we recommend using a plastic shovel, or a plastic blade protector when plowing.
