Pavers in Louisiana

The proficiency

A common question that we encounter is whether you can use a thin paver on top of base material. The answer is not absolute. In reality, it depends on the circumstances of the project and the proficiency of the crew or individual installing the Pavers in the first place. The one aspect of the project that must remain constant if considering the use of thin Pavers over base is that the area to be paved must only be used as a pedestrian area that won't endure the weight of vehicular traffic.  800-403-6173

Frowned upon

Using a thin paver on compacted base is typically frowned upon within the paver industry. They are normally used to remodel an existing concrete, tile, or acrylic surface. The only difference, however, between using a thin paver and thick paver over compacted base is that you cannot compact the thin paver once the project is complete.

Standard practice

In both instances, the base material is compacted, but once a thick paver project is completed it is standard practice to spread joint sand over top and compact the field once or twice. The quality, thickness, and careful compaction of the base material is truly what gives any new paver area its longevity and as long as this crucial step is tended to appropriately, then the longevity of the paver project will not be compromised, regardless of the paver thickness.

Pavers Guys in Louisiana and Thin Brick Pavers  

We frequently install thin Pavers on top of base material when the project calls for it. For instance, if we are remodeling an existing pool deck and the client wants to expand the deck area, we will simply excavate the addition, compact four inches of base material and install the thin Pavers on top so that they are flush with the thin Pavers we just installed over top of the existing pool deck. The reason we choose to use a thin paver in this example is to maintain color, shade, and variation consistency throughout the entire project.

Thin Brick Pavers in Louisiana

Thick and thin Pavers never match exactly because they are manufactured at different times using different aggregates. The variation in color dye blending and moisture content of the sand and aggregates during the manufacturing process is what gives each batch of Pavers its own distinct look. In fact, you can typically notice a serious difference between any two paver areas in color, shade, or variation whether these areas were simply produced at different times or there's a difference in product thickness. This aesthetic sacrifice does not work for most clients and using a thin paver over prepared base for a purely pedestrian area is completely functional other than the aforementioned compaction difference when compared with a thick paver.

Thin Brick Pavers  

If a client is simply interested in a new paver patio in Louisiana, then thick Pavers are the order of the day. Believe or not, but thick Pavers cost the same as thin Pavers! Therefore, there is not a difference in the project cost for the client when choosing to construct a brand new patio. Occasionally, however, a client simply likes the look, be it shape or color, of a thin paver vendor better than any of the options from the thick paver option. If this is the case, we maintain that the aesthetics are the main priority of the project and we will utilize the thin Pavers over prepared base.
