Along with paver productions support, we also care for the maintenance of the pavers and here are some of the tips that will help to take care of concrete pavers and its regularly reported issues.
We often see that pavers at footpath, compounds and even at home surrounding that many pavers are either broken or uneven. It often causes some disturbance to many passengers or ourselves when we walk over or near to it. However, We often neglect it because this issue might not under us to solve or we don’t know what to do. Hence, we are providing you with the solution to a few problems that usually occur during the lifespan of pavers. These solutions can be used at your paver filled compounds.
Here are the problems and solutions for the paver issues.
Uneven size and height of pavers
We often find uneven pavers at public places which is not so comfortable to walk by. However, the reason behind this problem in the base itself. The base may not be filled properly or the mixer had an uneven thickness. If the site has clay soil, then it will hold a lot of water than soil.
The existence of more water in the soil will make way to displace the original position of pavers. During the winter time when the ground freeze, the soil will expand more and push the paver up. However, when the soil comes back to normal position, The pavers may stay at the same high since they cannot move down without a good amount of force from the other side.
Solution: Unfortunately, we cannot fix it easily. Hence, we will have to redo the paver installation by clearing the stone dust under the paver.
Stone Dust issue causing uneven Paver Height
It often observes that most paver production unit use stone dust for the base preparation as a setting bed. Stone dust is a screening by-product that used for having some gravel pits. However, the main problem with stone dust is that it breaks into fine dust form when its installed under the paver. This dust holds a lot of water and can form a clay soil when it freezes.
Solution: The ideal way to make composite to have even compaction is by using ¾ processed gravel that has various size particles. However, there is no way to repair the existing uneven paver other than starting over the whole process.
The Paver and Fixed edges are slowing disappears
You would have noticed that many pavers don’t have the correct edge and those are on the edge of breaking since no setting bed is available under the pavers.
Solution: A filter fabric usage under the base and bringing up the sides of project excavator will prevent this issue. Unlike the uneven paver heights, this issue can be fixed by the particular area without completely starting over. Filter fabric can be fixed for each paver and new base can be added for paver reinstallment.
Paver Land is Settled
The main reason for a settled paver land is lack of compaction. This phenomena is often seen on a nearby site where house or pools are constructed. The backfilled soil are mostly not contacted when they filled. It is common that the ground under the paver dug up and not filled properly.
Solution: We are do following for fixing this issue.
- Pull up the paver
- Add more gravel base
- Make sure that it compacted in intervals
- When the base is properly filled, level with bedding sand
- Now reinstall the paver.
The edge pavers are about to fall off
The main reason for this issues is that no edge restraints are installed to keep the pattern together.
Solution: There are 2 type of edge restraints are available in the market for paver installation. The most used type in indian land is PVC edging restraints that used during paver installation. It spiked into the base of the gravel where paver is installed. For fixing this settled issue, paver need to take out, more sand and base need to be filled with proper compaction and at the end an edge restraint need to be installed in order to rectify paver settle issue.
Water is puddling on the paver.
There could be 2 reason for this issue.
- The base may not be built at a proper pitch and may have build at a slightly low spot.
- The base was not compacted well and the land settled over the time.
Solution: The only way to fix this issue is to pull up the paver area that settled and add more base and grave to compact the land before reinstalling the pavers.
Uneven pavers and tipping.
The reason for this issue is that pavers are not installed with joint sand and that resulted into a setting bed.
Solution: When pavers are completely laid, the concrete sand or polymeric sand is poured into all joints. Next to that vibratory plate compactor should run over the pavers. More sand is required to top off the joints and project is compacted 2 or 3 times.
So the next time you find an unorganized pavers in a public space, at home surrounding or at factories, you might able to know the reason behind it and can even figure out the solution to it.
