Depending on the size and scope of work involved, the construction of a new paver driveway can be installed by an experienced paver installation contractor generally over a 5 to 7 day period, depending on the size.

Permeability – We can even provide you with permeable paving stones, which will allow water to seep down into the ground through the spaces between the pavers and help prevent water from pooling on your driveway. For permeable paver installations, it’s best to stick with ashlar or herringbone patterns due to the larger joints, which create an increased opportunity for shifting when used with running bond or basketweave patterns.

Current trends lean towards choosing driveway paver colors that tie in with the roof color of the home, either in the primary paver field or in a border.

When it comes to remodeling the outside of your home  , you will want to do all of the research you can about local Rienzi companies, the different options you have for choosing materials you like, as well as the cost of the project.

If up front costs are not as much of an important factor and aesthetics are, then Concrete Driveways or paver driveways are the alternative for a hard surface driveway.

The ultimate goal, of course, is to create a beautiful entrance to your home that is durable enough to withstand the burden of vehicular use without shifting or cracking.

But as with any other home-improvement project, there are multiple considerations including paver style, color, laying pattern and overall design.

Whether you plan to sell your home or keep it for generations, a paver driveway surface from System Pavers will provide quality and long lasting results that will quickly become the envy of your neighbors.

How To Paint Driveway

A majority of your driveway paver installation cost will come from materials.

Our driveway pavers are highly trained on how to applying the paving material on the driveway using modern equipment.

Finally, because they are small and easy to handle and don’t require heavy equipment to install, concrete pavers are a great material for a DIY driveway.

Contractors typically cut grooves into the grass, lay down a base material and pack the paver on top.

After leveling out the base material, layer the pavers on top and use a fill material over the pavers.

We will come to your premises with a truck loaded with fresh and top quality material and meticulously fill the holes.

To avoid this, we will go an extra mile and apply a driveway sealing material on top at no extra charge.

After assessing your landscape and evaluating your preferences, we will help you choose the right concrete material and install it for you at a fair price.

At System Pavers, we know that each driveway paving project is different and requires a unique approach to accommodate the individual style of homeowners and the architectural details of the home.

Outdoor paving is usefulfor a number of reasons. You may want to createa dry walking area, or give theentranceway a new look. There are a lot ofoff-the-shelf pavers available, but in some cases, it can bebetter to make your own paving because, for a similaramount of effort and cost, you can customize them tofit the exact area you need. So I'm going to show you howto make some exposed aggregate pavers yourself. So what I've got aresome horrible old stones. So what I'm going to dois dig all these out, and I'm going to make mypavers in between these areas. So what I'm thinking, I'm goingto have two pavers sitting here, two pavers sitting here. And what I think I'll do is laya continuation of these steps, a strip, one there. And now, almost like keeping thesame line as these pavers going across here, another two. Exactly the samedimensions of these. And then I'll just laya garden across here. Now, that's going togive us protection on the deck from the neighbors,give us a little bit of privacy also. Now, in betweenthese pavers, I think I'll put some nice, new,white stones around it. And that'll I'll outamongst the black pavers. First step, draw up a planwith all the dimensions. By 14. 45. I'm going to make my pavers75 millimeters thick. And also, underneaththat, I'm going to have 25-mill mill of finesto give a nice, firm base. So effectively, what I needto do is dig down 100 mill. To recap, I'm diggingdown 100 millimeters. This will allow for 25millimeters of fines as a base, and 75 millimetersfor the paver. Now, in thisparticular situation, all my borders are alreadydefined by this boxing. So if you're at home and youwant to do a strip of pavers down the middle of your lawn,what you might want to do is run a couple ofstring lines so you know the exact area thatyou're going to be digging out. Now, I was pretty luckyin this situation here. Underneath my oldstones were some fines. So I'm going to get thecompactor in here, compact that down. So that's around about25 mill of fines. Now, obviously, at home,if you just strike dirt, you're still going tohave to fill that up with about 25 mill offines, and still compact it. Now I've compacted that down. It's all looking pretty good. And I've startedlaying in our boxing in between where ourpavers are going to go. Now, a good littlerule of thumb you want to think about whenyou're laying your pavers. You want to be no morethan about 500 millimeters from the center to thecenter of your pavers. If you put them too farapart, you'll be striding. If you put themtoo close, you're going to do a wholelot of little shuffles. So what I've got here, acouple of bits of 3 by 3. I've nailed them together. And that's going to give memy exact width that I want, 90 mill. Now, a good little tip for you. I've just put a little chamferon the edge of that boxing. And that's just goingto help me pop it out. You could also put some, like,old engine oil or something like that on there. That'll help lubricateit and pull it out. So I'm just going toput my last one in. Now, there's a coupleof different ways you could attach this boxing. You could use nails. Come in through the outsidehere, and just leave the nail sticking outa slight bit so it's nice and easy to pull out. I'm just using somesquare-drive 3-inch screws. And they'll come outnice and easy, too. We're just about readyfor our concrete. The last thing we haveto do is cut our mesh. I've laid all my mesh. I've just got thelast place to cut. Now, there's a coupleof different ways you can cut this mesh. Either you use an anglegrinder, a hacksaw if you like, or you can just use these niceand simple set of bolt cutters. Now, a wee little tip. When you are cuttingyour mesh, you just want to make sure that you'reabout 40 to 50 millimeters away from the edge of your boxing. Once you've made sure allyour mesh fits the holes, remove it all before yourfirst pour of concrete. OK. I'm just about ready toplace in my concrete. Now, the type of concrete thatI'm using is just the stock standard dry mix,ready-mixed in a bag. Now all I have to do,tip that into a barrow or concrete mixer,and just add water. What I'm going to do isactually add some black oxide. That's going to give it areally nice dark color, sort of a charcoal color. Now, a wee little tip. What I'm going to do is addhalf the stock standard concrete into our pavers. I'll put my meshin, and then I'm going to top it up withour colored concrete. Two reasons for that. One, I'm going to savemoney on the black oxide. And two, I'm going to getmore color consistency over more steps withone mix in the barrow. Now I'm just going touse a vibrator just to make sure this concrete getsall the air bubbles out of it. I'm going to give it areally nice solid mix. It's not imperative. You could tap thesides with a hammer to get those air bubbles out. But this is a reallygood way to make sure we get a nice, solid pour. [MACHINE WHIRRING] Cool. So I'm just goingto add in that mesh. And then we'lltop it up a little bit later with a goodmix of our black oxide. I've mixed up some moreconcrete and finished off the rest of the pavers. Now for the black oxide. You just add it intoyour concrete to color. Follow the instructions on thepacket, pour it over your mesh, and concrete away as per normal. OK. I'm just using anold bit of timber to scree this off roughly level. And then I'm justgoing to finish it off with my magnesium trowel. I'm not going touse a steel float trowel to finish this off. It's going to bring up toomuch water at this stage. So all we need todo is use our timber and our magnesium trowel. Now, when you're usingthe edging trowel, it's quite of a fine linewhen you do put it in. You don't want toput it in too late. Otherwise, coinconcrete's already set. And you don't want to put itin early when it's too wet. So it's kind of a little bit-- probably about 20 minutesafter you place the concrete, throw it in there. Now, we don't need toget too fussy on it because we are going tobe spraying this later and exposing the concrete. So all we need to do isa nice little radius. Righty-o. Well, concrete's in. I've troweled it off. Now, what I'mgoing to do next is I'm going to spray someRugasol on the top. Now, Rugasol eats away at aboutthe top five to six millimeters on the surface. Now, that just eatsaway at all that slurry, and it gives a reallynice, exposed stone look. So what I'm going to dois just a wee little test first with my finger to seeif the concrete's dry enough for me to spray it on. So we just want to makesure that it's tacky so it only just comes offon the tip of our finger. Yep, that's looking really good. So what I'm going to dois use a spray bottle. And we'll give areally fine mist spray. We don't want toput truckloads on. Otherwise, it's going to eattoo deep into the surface. All we're looking for is to giveit a really fine mist spray. And then we're going to letit wait for about 24 hours. Next day, I'm going tocome and hose it off. Righty-o. Now I'm just going to do exactlythe same to all the rest. And when you're finished,make sure you rinse out your sprayer. Now it's been 24 hours. I'm just about toremove the top surface to expose the aggregate. Now, to do that, I'm goingto use a water blaster. I've got that set righton minimum setting. So I'm not goingto hit it too hard. Now, you can use agarden hose, if you like. You just want to take your time. Now, a couple of tips. Now, if you are workingnear any drains, you might want to puta silage or a hay bale in that gutter tocapture this top slurry. You certainly don'twant any of this to hit anywherenear any waterways. And I've got thison a fan setting, so we're just going to goreally nice and lightly. Next step isremoving our boxing. Now, we really just want totake care our time doing this. I'm going to pop thescrews out, and I'm going to give our boxing awee little tap with a hammer just to loosen itfrom the concrete. OK. Now I'm just going to repeatthe same process for the rest. Now you're ready to addyour finishing touches. I've decided on someblack stain for my borders and some white pebbles inthe gaps between my pavers. Check it out. There's our exposedaggregate pavers. As you can see, they lookgreat, and have helped finish off this area nicely. Plus, no more muddy socks whenyou're going to get the mail.

Ora walkway. can be a functional and beautiful addition to your backyardlandscape, and with proper planning, attention to detail and a little hardwork, you can achieve a long-lasting result, regardless of your skill level andexperience. Begin by marking the outside dimensions of the project area. Then, excavate to a depth of four to seveninches, with a shovel. Allow for two to four inches of acompactible underlayment base, 1 to 2 inches of paver sand for levelingand the width of the paver. Then install edge restraints. Edgerestraints are required to stabilize the pavers and prevent settling and shifting overtop. Edges should be set to allow for properdrainage, away from structures, and should slope evenly away fromstructures. One-quarter inch for every twelve feet is sufficient to allow for rain run-off. Evenly spread 2 to 4 inches of QUIKRETE All-Purpose Gravel into the excavatedarea. Then, level the gravel. Using a tamper, compact the gravel base. Spread 1 to 2 inches of QUIKRETE PatioPaver Sand over the compacted base. The Paver Sand willact as a leveling bed that the pavers will rest in. Use a twoby four and a one by one to construct a screedto level the paver sand to a consistent depth, equal to the width of the paver. Then,screed the sand smooth, removing the excess sand in front of thescreen and adding additional sand, behind the screed, as necessary. This will take several passes. Once yourbase is level, use stakes and a string for a straight edge, to align the paver rows. Starting in a corner, lay the paversoutward, maintaining a consistent joint widthbetween each paver. Then, tap and level the pavers in placewith a rubber mallet. Check to make sure your pavers aresquare and level, on a regular basis. Now that the paversare in position, the joints must be filled with sand tohold the pavers in place. QUIKRETE Powerloc Jointing Sand and QUIKRETE HardScapes Polymeric Jointing Sand are formulated with special dry polymerresin binders and are designed to lock pavers in place. Powerloc Jointing Sand can be used for paver joint widths up to 1/2 inch. For larger joints, up to two inches wide, and for use withnatural stone, HardScapes Polymeric Sand isrecommended. Simply sweep the polymeric sand into thejoints with a broom and remove any excess sand from the paver'ssurface. Make sure the pavers are clean and dry, before application. Then, apply a general fine water mist to the fill joints,flooding the surfaces of the pavers and allowing the water to saturate thesand filled joints. Dampen hourly, at regular intervals, for three hours after placement. Be sureto avoid flooding the sand onto the paver's surface. The joints will harden as they dry,usually over a period of several days, depending on temperature and humidity, creating a firm, durable paver joint. Oncehardened, QUIKRETE Polymeric Jointing Sand willprevent errosion insects and weed growth. The amount ofjointing sand you will need varies based on the joint width and paverthickness. A 1/2 inch joint will typically requireabout five bags per 100 square feet of paver area and two-inch joints will require up to 13bags per 100 square feet. Polymer resins are temperature-sensitiveso temperatures should remain over 35 degrees for a 12 hour period, after application.
