How to install Interlock Pavers

Base prep:

Preparation is key to a lasting installation. If you have ever seen pavers that are displaced, sinking or raised, you can be sure the pavers were not installed on a properly prepared sub-base

  • Excavate down to solid ground to ensure we have a solid base to start with
  • Use 3/4 crushed gravel to fill the excavated area to previous set levels.
  • We compact thoroughly to give a solid sub-base ( 2-4 inch lifts to guarantee good compaction)
  • Once sub-base has been compacted, we spread sand/screenings evenly over the area. This process is called “screening” and is where we set grades.

With the sub-base perfectly in place, we are ready to lay the interlock pavers. This can be laid in several choices of random patterns, interlock types and colors.

**Install pavers with as much fall needed for appropriate water drainage.

Finish:

The finishing steps ensure your new interlock project will last for many years to come and give your property curb appeal.

  • Saw cut pavers: for the precision fit that is required to match corners, curves or unusual angles, pavers are carefully measured, then cut with a high-powered saw for a clean edge and exact fit.

  • Spread polymeric sand and run compactor over interlocking. ( making the sand go further into the seams of the interlock)

  • With broom go over interlock area to ensure all seams are filled in with the polymeric sand.

  • Wash interlock off with water lightly (the water reacts with the polymeric sand and forms a solid bond between the seams to prevent weed growth.) also in this procedure we can see if the grades were set right, hence no puddling.

Clean up:

  • We put everything back to its original condition and thoroughly clean ALL messes related to our construction project.
  • If any damage were caused during construction, we fix it to original state!
