They can give the best advice on materials and refer possible contacts from landscaping suppliers. Different pavers suit certain applications so make sure that the materials needed are right for the said project. It will be a waste of money if the wrong type of pavers is installed. Concrete pavers are 100% manufactured material. It is made with two ingredients. Cement and aggregate. It can be manufactured and produced to withstand any kind of harsh weather conditions and endure high or low traffic areas. It is available in different styles for different applications. Concrete pavers are made to look and resemble natural stone at a fraction of a cost of real stones.
A common question that we encounter is whether you can use a thin paver on top of base material. The answer is not absolute. In reality it depends on the circumstances of the project and the proficiency of the crew or individual installing the pavers in the first place. The one aspect of the project that must remain constant if considering the use of thin pavers over base is that the area to be paved must only be used as a pedestrian area that wont endure the weight of vehicular traffic. Using a thin paver on compacted base is typically frowned upon within the paver industry. They are normally used to remodel an existing concrete tile or acrylic surface.
The only difference however between using a thin paver and thick paver over compacted base is that you cannot compact the thin paver once the project is complete. In both instances the base material is compacted but once a thick paver project is completed it is standard practice to spread joint sand over top and compact the field once or twice. The quality thickness and careful compaction of the base material is truly what gives any new paver area its longevity and as long as this crucial step is tended to appropriately then the longevity of the paver project will not be compromised regardless of the paver thickness.
