A solution of bleach powder and water in a proportion of 1:10 can also be used for cleaning pavers. Apply the solution over the pavers with a brush and then scrub. Remember that bleach can cause discoloration. Therefore try it on one of the pavers in a corner and see the result before you start cleaning. For removing paint from pavers paint thinner can be applied on the pavers and then scrape it out with a rag carefully. The most difficult job is to remove rust stains from pavers. When the normal methods do not work use an appropriate chemical with the help of a professional. After cleaning pavers allow it to dry.
In addition to the pattern you create with pavers on the deck around the pool you can also create irregular shapes and patterns for other areas around the pool. For example you can use irregular shaped pavers to create steppingstones as the entrance to the pool deck or patio. Irregular shapes such as stone pavers can create a decorative look such as to surround flowerbeds or create small walls to separate one area of the yard from another. You can also combine different shaped pavers to add a different design effect. Combining different shapes of pavers allows you to create unique designs that set your outdoor design and décor apart from the neighbors and other people you know.
After fixing any sagging areas look for individual pavers that are sitting higher or lower than the surrounding pavers. A paver that sits higher can often be leveled by using a rubber mallet to force it into its proper position. If its too high or doesnt move you may have to remove it so you can remove some of the sand thats below the paver. If it sits low youll have to remove it to add sand until its level. To remove the paver you can purchase a paver removal tool or you can use a small pry bar to loosen the paver and lift it out of its space being careful not to crack or chip the paver. Its a good idea to pressure wash the surface on a yearly basis. Pressure Washing cleans the surface of your pavers and also remove much of the organic material growing between the pavers. Removing the organic material reduces the amount of bugs living in your paver area and helps keep the pavers stable.
Paver manufacturers are in business to produce as many pavers as quickly and as efficiently as they can. When they have to shut the system down to change out shape molds and adjust machinery to accommodate thin paver thickness they lose a lot of valuable production time. It can take hours to switch from one mold to the next. Additionally since thin pavers arent ordered as often the order quantities are frequently less and the manufacturer is forced to produce less pavers per mold and color. This inefficiency causes increased costs for the producers and they pass those costs on to their customers. So even though thin pavers use fewer raw materials to be produced they take up more time and time is money.
