The Correct Way to Install Block Paving:
Block paving generally offers an opportunity for beautification especially in the construction of pavements. This has gone a long way in enabling people to leverage different shapes, color as well as the relatively low cost. Moreover, you may choose to change the bricks depending on your needs and convenience.
The correct way to install block paving begins with first determining the kind of design that appeals to you depending on your purpose. Excavation should follow and the excavation depth is should be at a minimum of 230 mm after which you should place all the edge restraints. Consequently, you should place a sub-base (MOT type) of about 150 mm in two separate layers of about 75 mm each for better compacting then go ahead to carry out screeding by laying a 30 mm thick layer of course sand uniformly.
Thereafter, it is time to lay your bricks in a pattern that appeals to you then alignment with a string line and alignment bar tool. Cutting-in is necessary especially for the edges in order to fit perfectly before finally deciding to carry out jointing, which involves first compacting with a whacker plate and with a rubber mat. After that you may sweep kiln dried sand over the whole area to fill all the joints, compact once more and finally brush in the kiln sand again. With the correct way to install block paving, you now have an appealing driveway parking.
