To ensure the maximum longevity of your project, we recommend cleaning and sealing concrete pavers every 5-7 years. If you have a Unilock Enduracolor or Endura color Plus pavers, we recommend having the pavers cleaned within the 1st 4 years. If you have standard pavers, we recommend having them cleaned and sealed the next year [...]
If you are using your clay pavers for a driveway area, it is very probable that eventually you will have oil spots. EaCo Chem has a cleaner for this and if if the stain is extremely stubborn the brick(s) affected can be replaced. Note that our Cityline Series pavers are finished on both sides which [...]
In a generally damp area, low levels of sunlight and/or wind can create a situation conducive to moss and organic growth on some types of pavers. Some times this is desirable to achieve an old world look. We can help you plan for, or plan to avoid, this situation. This is one of very few [...]
The elements of rain, wind, and sunlight keep your pavers clean. They also tend to displace the sand between your pavers which could ultimately lead to a failure of your pavement. Be sure to check your sand annually and re-sweep new sand into the voids if necessary. TIP: This maintenance can be eliminated by the [...]
With proper design and installation, the only maintenance issues you need to consider are sweeping sand replenishment, possible moss growth, vehicle fluid stains and cleaning and sealing the pavers.
Once the salts are introduced into the pavement system, the only way to remove the efflorescence is to get rid of the salts. For this reason, to develop a plan, you must first determine the source of the salts and eliminate them if possible. Once the salts are gone, the efflorescence will stop with time [...]
It is most likely efflorescence. Efflorescence is nothing more than salt that has wicked its way up through the pavement and solidified on the surface of your brick. While it is unsightly, it is not physically harmful to your paver in any way.
We use angular sand ASTM-C-33 cement sand. Round sand moves freely like ball bearings and angular sand locks together to give you a more solid setting bed.
We use virgin stone which has a stronger load bearing capability than recycled stone and drains much better. Recycled material is made up of old crushed up concrete. It’s not the crushed concrete that is the problem, it’s all the other adulterated garbage (i.e. dirt, clay brick, grass clippings and sometimes auto fluff) that’s mixed [...]
Snap Edge or Beast Edging are proven to be the best edge restraints on the market and have proven them self over the years.
