Patio Paver Repair, Reset & Rebuild…
Before we clean and seal any hardscape, the system must be structurally sound. We will complete all necessary patio paver repair, so that your patio, walk or wall will be restored to its original condition.
Patio Paver Repair
Loose, broken, sunken or raised pavers are not only unattractive, but they can also cause injury. Often, these areas indicate existing problems in the base material that must be repaired. Over time the problems will become worse and require more intensive and costly repairs. We will repair and re-grade the base then reset the pavers to a uniform and consistent grade.
Any pavement edges where the pavers have settled or moved will have to be repaired before sealing. Paver edging keeps the pavement in place by securing the edge and preventing the pavers from spreading. It must be installed properly to maintain the structural integrity of the entire paved area. Often this edging is raised, broken or nonexistent. We will install new paver edging if the existing edging is in poor condition or was never installed. Click here for more information on edging
Sunken Patios and Steps
It is common to see sunken pavers along the edges of raised patios and pool decks or steps that have settled and are loose or unstable. This is usually caused by improper construction or poor compaction of the base material when initially installed. We will deconstruct and rebuild these areas properly to help prevent failures from reoccurring. We will also re-glue any loose caps and stair treads.
Retaining, Raised Patio and Free Standing Walls
Walls constructed of retaining wall block have a tendency to move over time, particularly if not built properly. Once a wall begins to fail, it will eventually fall over. We will deconstruct and rebuild these walls properly to help prevent these failures from reoccurring. We will also re-glue any loose caps.
Concrete pavers, brick pavers, poured concrete, and natural paving stones all need to be cleaned thoroughly before a sealer can be applied.
Our cleaners can remove grease, rust, paint, leaf stains… you name it! We use a specialized product for each type of stain.
The sand between the joints of the pavers plays an important role in the structural integrity of the pavement system. It creates an interlock between the pavers and is a common point of failure. When installed properly, polymeric jointing sand becomes hard. It may soften to allow flexibility for expansion and contraction in response to the weather.
After thoroughly clearing the joints of all existing material our technicians will re-joint your walk, patio or driveway with a next-generation polymeric jointing sand specially formulated to stabilize the pavers while preventing erosion, inhibiting weed growth and resisting ants and other insects
There are some cases where polymeric sand might not be the best choice. In those situations, we will install a specifically graded sand without the polymer binders to be used in combination with a joint stabilizing sealer.
This is the final step in the patio paver repair process. After your pavers have been restored they should be SEALED to protect your investment.
There are several types of sealers to choose from and each has specific qualities. Our Certified Restoration Specialist will help you choose the right sealer for your project.
