Paver Patio Installation FAQ

Paver patios have several benefits over other types of patios, such as concrete patios, that include the following:

  • Aesthetics: Brick pavers are available in a wide range of colors, sizes, and styles which gives homeowners a lot of freedom when it comes to the aesthetic of their patio. Homeowners can choose colors that match the exterior of their home and other outdoor spaces, and even choose pavers in multiple colors to create patterns. 
  • Durability: Brick pavers are interlocking which means that they fit and lock together like puzzle pieces. The interlocking pavers create a surface that is stronger than concrete slabs which are more prone to cracking and breaking.  Brick pavers are also treated with surface coatings that help prevent dirt buildup, stains, and weathering.
  • Low maintenance: Brick pavers are low maintenance and can be kept looking their best with annual washing. If a paver is broken, it can simply be replaced. 
  • Longer warranty: The brick pavers offered by Pavestone have a longer warranty than you will get with other patio materials.
  • More outdoor living options: With brick pavers available in many different styles, sizes, shapes, and colors, you have seemingly endless options to create a unique patio.

On average, brick paver patios can be installed in about 2-5 days.  Larger patios and patios with more complex designs and features such as retaining walls, steps, and pillars may take several days longer to install.

It is best to hire a professional to install paver patios because they have the expertise and experience to provide a proper installation.  Our professional installers at Pavestone will take care of the following for your paver patio installation:

  • Patio design: We will first work with you to choose your pavers and design your patio. Your design will be created into a 3D model so you can see what the final product will look like.
  • Proper installation: Our professionals will manage every part of the installation including the digging and creation of the base for the pavers and ensure proper pitch for effective drainage.
  • Longevity: Having your paver patio properly installed by a professional will help it last longer.
  • Craftsmanship: Our professionals can provide an expert level of craftsmanship which maximizes the appearance and longevity of your patio.
  • Scheduling/ timing: We will create a schedule for your patio installation to ensure that your patio is installed in a timely manner.

The cost of installing a paver patio is determined by the size and design of the patio, the pavers used, and the time it takes to complete the installation.  On average, paver patio installations cost $8-25K.

Paver patios are easy to maintain, and they are constructed to need very little maintenance. It is recommended that you clean your paver patio once a year with a mild, plant safe detergent to remove dirt buildup and debris.  Do not use a power washer because this could damage the sand between the pavers.  A garden hose should work just fine.

If installed correctly, paver patios can withstand weather conditions including rain, wind, and snow and ice.  Brick pavers are treated with surface coatings that prevent dirt buildup and protect them from harsh conditions.  They are also pitched properly to allow for effective drainage, and you can even choose to use permeable brick pavers that allow rainwater to drain to the soil underneath the pavers.

No, this is not possible because the concrete patio can crack and buckle under the brick pavers which makes it impossible to repair broken pavers.  It is best to have the existing concrete patio removed completely and install the new paver patio in its place.

Pavers can last for 20-30 years if they receive proper maintenance.

There are plenty of options for the design of a paver patio, including the color, shape, size, and design of the brick pavers themselves, the patterns and arrangements of the pavers, and additional features such as steps or retaining walls.

Yes, brick pavers can be used for many different outdoor projects including walkways, driveways, retaining walls, stoops and steps, and outdoor kitchen features.  Our professionals at Pavestone can help you design and install any of these outdoor features using highly durable, low maintenance brick pavers.

We just had our old concrete patio replaced with a beautiful paver patio and we LOVE it! We used Mario who was wonderful, and I would highly recommend! He was extremely responsive to our phone calls and questions and everyone we worked with was extremely professional. Mario sat with me for over an hour as we made our decision on the perfect stones to match our yard and the siding and roof, and when it came time to do the installation, the staff couldn’t have been nicer and efficient! We love our patio so much and had such a great experience that we want to add on a fire pit, seating area, and built in grill for next year!

Ricky and his crew truly delivered. From the planning stages through completion Ricky was responsive, timely and gave us a clear expectation of all aspects of the project. The project started on time and finished on schedule. The installation crew did a great job making sure everything was done right and kept everything as clean and organized as possible while the project was going. We are thrilled with our new patio.

Mario at Pavestone is the best. He was a pleasure to work with. We didn’t know exactly what we wanted in a paver patio but Mario was patient with us and talked through a few designs, showed us the unilock catalog and helped us narrow it down. He gave insightful recommendations and never made us feel rushed or pressured and definitely no upselling!!! If you want proper old school customer service just ask for Mario. Once we scheduled the work, they had a crew of about 5 or 6 and it only took them 4 days. The attention to detail was wonderful. They laid down plywood to make sure they didn’t destroy the grass in-between the house. They were prompt and cleaned up every day. They did a fantastic job and did not rush through any of it. We couldn’t be happier. We LOVE our beautiful patio from Pavestone!
