Pavers Install

Here is another project that we at NY Paving and Masonry have just completed. This was an existing patio pavers decking area that was previously done with wood decking. We removed all the existing decking, installed our own new sub base to make sure none of the pavers going in would be prone to movement. We then installed the new pavers on both areas. Check out the gallery for the pictures. We think the look of both areas has improved hugely. Call now to get a free estimate for your own patio or pool area. We guarantee we wont be beaten on price or quality of work.

Brick Paver Installation:

Tools Preparation

Arrange to rent a brick masonry saw and flat plate vibrator before the day you start your paver installation. You may want some basic operating tools like a carpenter's level, tapeline, rubber mallet, rake, shovel, timber stakes, string line, broom, safety eyewear, 1 x 10 foot long and a couple of x lengths of one inch diameter piping.

Site Preparation

The single most important part of the complete paver installation happens to be the preparation of the dirt and paver bed. The general strength of the pavement system relies upon the right preparation and placement of the dirt and base materials.

Mark out space the world to be paved by putting wooden stakes round the area then paint from an aerosol to spot the realm to be dug out.

Drainage

Set out the grade levels by securing a string line between the stakes, ensuring to slope the grade far from any building structure. This can make sure that drainage from rainfall won't run towards any adjacent building structures. Discovered the grade at two inches tall for each eight feet of pavement length.

Excavate site

Now excavate the top soil and sub soil among the staked out space with the shovel and to a depth of at least 10 inches in total. This can leave a base material of five inches to be placed at the bottom of the excavated trench, next will be one and a half inches of setting sand to be placed on prime of the bottom material then permit three and a half inches for the thickness of the clay brick paver to be placed on prime of the setting sand.

Compaction Of Base Materials

Compact the bottom of the ditch with the plate vibrator machine to create a firm foundation for the bottom materials. Place ¾ inch quarried gravel because the base material and compact it with the plate vibrator machine once more to supply a solid base for the setting sand to sit down on top of it.

Setting Sand

Lay the two pipe lengths, eight feet apart from different and parallel to every other. Place the sand to a height of one and a half inches in between the two lengths. Then mistreatment the 2x4 wood length, take care to level out the sand. Add a lot of sand if you see any low spots. Confirm to level out any high sand spots too. Once you have finished leveling the sand confirm that you just don't COMPACT THE SAND - because you may compact the bedding sand later on together with the clay brick pavers once using vibrator within the final stages of the installation. The ultimate compaction of the pavers and bedding sand is important to permit for the right interlocking method to require impact. It's the idea of the strength of the interlocking pavement system because the movement of the sand in the bottom and in between the clay paver joints makes them bond firmly along and bear the loads applied to the clay brick pavers in unison.

Installing Clay Brick Pavers

After you have finished putting the setting sand properly, you'll begin to put in the pavers. Begin putting in pavers from the middle of the site and work toward the outside edges of the pavement. Reason for this is often to permit the trimming items to be at the skinny edge of the pavement. Place the pavers concerning one eighth of one inch, except one another. Check the string line to create sure you're moving straightly once every five feet of forward progress. Build any adjustment by resetting the pavers using a screwdriver so they sit straight. When the pavers are put in straightly, you wish to install the border material to prevent the paver from moving out of place. The edging material must be secured in place before you place the bedding sand and pavers.
