Although pavers are generally one of the lowest maintenance options for your yard, they do sometimes fall into disrepair. If your driveway or patio is made from concrete pavers, you are in luck – they are one of the easiest construction materials to fix
Pavers are uniformly sized and shaped bricks. This means a small area of a patio or driveway can be removed and re-installed in a seamless repair. If individual bricks are stained or damaged to the point that they need to be replaced, no problem, just replace them with new bricks. Try that with a poured concrete patio, walkway or driveway!
Let's say your poured concrete driveway has sunk and it's all cracked up. You can hire someone to pump grout under your driveway to level it with your garage slab, but then you are left with dozens of holes in your driveway filled with plugs, and of course cracks will never disappear.
Brick patios rarely fail if installed properly and high quality materials were used. But like proper installation, repair requires an understanding of how the concrete paver system works. Repairs can be as simple as lifting a few bricks and leveling them with additional base material, or in extreme cases, may require a the removal and reconstruction of the patio base.
If your patio needs work, we can help you diagnose the problem and come up with a cost-effective repair plan.
If your patio, walkway or driveway needs some TLC, give us a call, email or text anytime! We'd love to help.
