Permeable Pavers Role in LID: Water passes through the upper lever of the pavers to a sub-level infiltration basin. Storm water is therefore treated through filtration volatilization microbial activity storage and ion exchange. Water is filtered slowly and can be used on-site. Iniltration: There is some disagreement about how much water infiltrates through permeable pavers. The percentage of water that actually moves through the pavers must be figured considering the lifetime of the paver surface and the type of soil beneath the surface. For clean pavers free of dirt and soil a study has shown that water can move through permeable pavers at a rate of 3-4 inches per hour.
First stop is the companys website. Youll find info about how long the company has been in business the neighborhoods in which they work and testimonials. Top-notch contractors will also educate you about paver installation on their websites. Next do a web search for Reviews and the companys name. That will bring up reviews from Google Yelp Yellow pages and more. Take the time to read them. Checking whether the firm is a member of a trade organization that emphasis continuing education professionalism and environmental protection. And always ask to see former client projects in your area. If the contractor has an online portfolio of completed projects you can do see their work as well as getting ideas for your own.
So youve decided that its time to do away with your existing deck. Most likely you have an existing deck surface that is cracking and chipping with mold and drainage issues. The main issue when considering what product to choose for your remodel is how it will hold up over time. Thin pavers are the only permanent solution on the market today. The reason pavers are considered a permanent solution is due to the inherent durability of the product and the fact that they are not actually adhered to the existing surface but instead float above the deck. Even tile which will be adhered to the surface will end up cracking over time as that surface fails beneath. Any product for that matter which is adhered to the existing surface be it cool deck tile paint acrylic sprays river rock flagstone or stamped concrete will end up cracking over time.
When the paver field encroaches upon the last row or border it is time to assess how that perimeter of the deck will be secured. The border pavers will be adhered to the existing deck if and only if that perimeter is not abutted by a fixed structure (i.e. the house a wall or screen enclosure). If the paver border is set against one of these fixed structures then theres no where the pavers can move and thus even the border can float on top of the existing deck. If we have a deck that is open air then the perimeter pavers will be cemented down just like the coping.
