There are many reasons you may have decided to install a concrete patio – it’s fast, it’s affordable, it’s durable, and more. However, a concrete patio can be pretty bland and there may come a day may when you wish that your patio was made from pavers with a little more character. Luckily, our patio paver installation can install pavers right over your concrete and give you a beautiful patio that can add design and style to your home.
As long as your patio meets the following requirements, we can lay pavers right on top of the concrete and you won’t have to rip it up and prepare it for a new application:
- Your concrete is free from major cracks.
- When we install pavers on top of cracked concrete, it creates a gap between the two. As the ground freezes and thaws underneath, its movement can shift and off-set the pavers.
- You have enough room for another layer of building material.
- Because we’re adding on to your patio and not replacing it, you need to make sure that your door threshold has enough height to allow a layer of pavers. When measuring, take into consideration frost heave, which will move the patio about 3/4″.
If you need help deciding if a paver patio installation is right for you, talk to one of our experts. We can explain your options and assess your patio to see if there’s enough room for another layer of material. If there is, we’ll help you decide on a type of paver and what shape would look best with your landscaping. After that, we’ll prepare your patio for a paver application and get the job done as quickly as possible.
By layering pavers over concrete, you can not only save time, but also save a lot of money. You won’t have to break up your existing concrete, haul it away, and create a base of compacted gravel before you can lay your pavers. Give us a call today or fill out our free estimate form to get started.
