Frequently asked questions
All of Your Most Pressing Questions Answered
What is interlock?
Interlock is the inability of a paver to move independently from the others around it. The key to the strength of this pavement system is that the locking of the pavers causes a load to be spread over a wider area rather than where the pressure is applied.
What are the elements used in an interlocking pavement system?
The elements include a base, bedding sand, concrete pavers with sand in their joints, and an edging that contains the pavers at the perimeter.
How do I fix damaged pavers?
The easiest option to fix damaged pavers is to replace them. But if the damage consists of a stain, an alternative solution would be to flip them over.
Are pavers slippery?
No, they are not. Regardless if the ground is wet or dry, the pavers’ texture provides excellent traction for pedestrians and vehicles.

Can I install pavers over concrete?
If your concrete is in excellent condition, which means no cracking or deterioration, then it is possible to install pavers over concrete. The existing concrete pad must slope away from any structures to allow for drainage and must have a drainage layer below the pavers.
If I choose to seal my pavers, will I have to reseal them?
If you decide to seal your pavers, we recommend reapplying the sealer every 3-5 years as it does wear over time.
Can I shovel my driveway without damaging the pavers?
Metal blades on snow plows can scratch the surface of the pavers and ruin the appearance. When you shovel the driveway, you should use a plastic shovel or a plastic blade protector when plowing.
