Clay Pavers

To create that Perfect Patio, Walkway or Garden area, start with "clay pavers". Showcase the exterior of your signature home with a clay brick paved porch, stoop, or other yard area. For ideas, view pictures of beautiful paved patio, garden and walkway areas below.

Do you want to install clay brick pavers over an existing concrete or asphalt driveway, patio or walk?

Brick paving can be installed over existing concrete or asphalt as long as it is in reasonably good shape. To ensure an adequate foundation for the brick, the existing concrete slab or asphalt should be inspected and repaired as necessary. Any cracks, chips, holes, ruts or spalls should be repaired in order to achieve a flat surface.

The bricks should be placed as close to each over as possible. It may be necessary to cut some of the brick near the opening. Once the bricks are in place, around the perimeter, use a K-1 grout fortifier to set the pavers. Sweep away excess surface sand and the brick pavement are ready for traffic. Mortared brickwork should not be laid on asphalt.

Create the layout and prepare the concrete for your pavers.

A. In the middle/center of every 10' x 10' concrete slab, pre-drill 1 hole (1 1/2" in diameter) and add a rubber hose insert through the concrete hole for drainage.

B. Poured concrete should be 2 1/4" or 3" below grade.

C. Brick should be placed over surface in pattern of your choice (see examples below) setting exterior edge with K-1 grout and fortifier, set brick tight and dust with sand.

D. Make sure to keep up the maintenance on your new pavers.
