WHO IS A PAVING CONTRACTOR?

From working on constructing paved surfaces for roads and houses and other small to large projects, paving contractors are hired to construct such surfaces and to work on existing ones that require repair.

Most paving companies make it a point to mention that they specialize in either residential or commercial paving. They use large equipment to complete the paving process – some might use excavators to lay out the land before the paving is done and some might use paving machines to place the tiles.

Sometimes they also use tamping machines which are mostly for flattening the surface.

Why do you require a paving constructor?

Small paving jobs can usually be done by yourself but otherwise, for large scale projects, you will need the help of a paving contractor.

This is not only because of the fact that large scale projects are for experienced contractors, but it’s also because they have access to better types of machinery that would help the process.

While choosing what type and material to be used for the pavers, several things need to be kept in mind.

While choosing the design of the tile, you need to be sure of the tile design that you pick so that specific tile moulds could be used to construct them.

According to the scenario, make sure you choose the right material for the tiles. The better tiles need not always be the more expensive ones either.

5 QUESTIONS THAT YOU NEED TO ASK YOUR PAVING CONSTRUCTOR

1. Ask them for how long they have been a paving contractor and some examples of their previous work.

If a company has been functioning for quite some time now, it does not always have to mean that their work is perfect. But it is a point that if they have been in business for a while now, then their work might be good enough for them to last so long.

It is also important that other factors are looked into before you trust the contractor. You can also ask him for some previous work that they have done.

Ask their former clients how their experience was after hiring these contractors and also try and see the work that they’ve done before.

2. Make sure that they are insured.

Ask and confirm if the contractors you are hiring are insured. If not, then any sort of damages that are caused to your property by the contractor would be at your expense.

When you hire your contractors, ask for proof of insurance.

Make sure that they have public liability insurance and workers compensation insurance. Public liability insurance covers any third party liabilities out of the premises and any legal costs that arise out of it.

3. Ask the contractor for the total estimate.

It is important that you ask your contractor for some details about your final payment. Your contractor should be able to give you proper details of the final amount that you ought to pay him and not just an estimate.

He should also inform you of any additional payments as no payments should come as a surprise to you later.

4. Details in the scope of work document

This is a document that is basically an agreement on the work that is going to be performed in the project. It’s basically an understanding of the scope of the entire project.

When you are collecting bids from multiple organizations, it is possible that you get confused because certain companies do not provide a proper detailed scope of work document.

So make sure that you chose the right company with a detailed scope of work document.

5. Try to find references you can call and contact

You needn’t believe everything a contractor tells you about his work. He is only going to let you know about the positives and not the negatives.

So try and get some good references that you can contact. These references could be some previous clients. If clients have good feedback about the company, then there’s nothing to worry about.

You should always keep in mind that the right contractor must be chosen for the right work. JR Rubber Industries provides you with the right kind of moulds for tiles for your project. We can ensure that you get the right service from the best consultants and manufacturers of paving block machinery and moulds.

Rubber Moulds Vs Silicone Moulds – How to Choose According to Your Needs

paving moulds manufacturers

Are you in the planning stages of your paving blocks project? Do you need to decide which mould, rubber or silicone mould is more suitable for your process?

We often have customers requesting silicone moulds. While we do not produce silicone moulds, our paving moulds produce an equivalent quality of cast concrete products while keeping cost well below the cost of comparable silicone moulds.

More and more homeowners, do-it-yourselfers, builders, and landscapers are making their own manufactured stones today. You can now make stones, tiles, bricks, and pavers for a fraction of what you’ve been buying them for, thanks to companies that manufacture and market concrete molds directly to consumers and tradespeople through the Internet.

Now you can make these building products right in your garage, basement, for a shed for pennies each!

Each option has its own advantages and disadvantages. The advantage to JR Rubbers’ proprietary blend of materials is that you get a commercial grade mould designed to be used hundreds if not thousands of times.

Our moulds are very robust in design and do not require the use of a release agent while most mould manufacturers recommend using a release agent. The lack of need for release agents also provides additional cost savings from both a material standpoint as well as a reduction in labor cost.

Rubber moulds work very effectively and are the “go-to” option for casting concrete pavers. In some cases, a release agent is not required when casting concrete in these moulds, but it depends greatly on the components of the concrete mix.

Using silicone rubbers may take away the need for release agents (which have the potential to affect the model); however, the oils from silicone rubbers also have the potential to affect the model in some way.

Platinum silicone mould rubbers can be appealing because of their great release properties (tin-cured silicones should not be considered for concrete as they shrink over time and deteriorate with age), but overall, we find that the advantages of rubber mould outweigh the advantages of silicone rubber for this paving block manufacturing application.

In addition to robustness and cost savings, our moulds provide excellent texture and general appearance as would be expected from an equivalent silicone mould. We stand behind our product 100%. You can be assured that our moulds meet or exceed the requirements of the industry.

Efflorescence, which produces salt deposits on the surface of concrete, more often occurs when silicone rubber moulds are used for casting (in comparison to rubber moulds).

This white residue is aesthetically displeasing and to remove it, you may need to use solvents or other chemicals.

In line with this, the overall color quality of the cast parts seem to differ depending on the mould material; concrete cast in rubber moulds tend to display more vivid color, where colors may appear muted when casting in silicone rubber moulds.

Silicone rubber moulds cost about twice as much as that of rubber moulds. This is because, by weight, it would require more silicone rubber than polyurethane rubber to create the same mould since silicone is denser.

Cured polyurethane rubbers exhibit physical properties that are generally “tougher” than silicones, so they are more resilient to wear and tear when moulds are used repeatedly for years.

Here at JR Rubbers, we often recommend the use of rubber to make moulds for concrete casting (e.g., concrete tiles, panels, pavers, bricks, countertops, edging, etc.). Established in 1993, we have been manufacturing moulds for wet cast concrete pavers/tiles, providing the complete solution for exterior flooring industry with the manufacture and the supply of moulds, paver machinery, setting chemicals and color oxides and complete technical assistance for paver production with in-plant training and onsite assistance for production.

7 Problems and its solution for Interlocking paver blocks in India

paver blocks in india

 

JR Rubber Industries are the leading producers of rubber paver blocks in india and spread their name in Africa for pavement and tile production, The company with 25 years of success is the prime choice for interlocking paver mould creation and paver plant installations along with onsite or online trainings

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.

rubber paver mould manufacturers

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.
