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.
The final step which ensures a tight secure field is to wash joint sand over the newly installed pavers. This sand will fill any and all voids between each and every paver. Its only purpose is to ensure that none of the pavers move. Frequently homeowners are concerned by the presence of sand on their deck. We remind them however that you need not see this join sand. Thin pavers are at least an inch in thickness and the smallest amount say 1/4 of inch of joint sand between the bricks for this type of application will keep all of the pavers in place and secure for years to come.
Outdoor patios have come a long way since the days of a wooden picnic bench gracing 24 x 24 concrete patio tiles with a charcoal BBQ in the corner. Todays decks and patios come complete with sofas end tables overstuffed chairs and ottomans. The old patio tiles are replaced with slate and huge elaborate gas grills complete the ensemble. With nothing but a sliding glass door separating a homes interior from the patio there is very little distinction between the two. Its time to throw out the old plastic chairs and make way for the plush double chaises with overstuffed cushions and coffee tables. You can buy any entire suite of aluminum furniture that looks like mahogany along with water resistant cushions.
The manufacturing process of concrete pavers has always been straightforward and simple and makes them more affordable than poured concrete or asphalt surfaces. Concrete pool paving is even more affordable than other materials like clay stone or granite. Most importantly when you install them in your swimming pool they last for a very long time. Pool pavers are manufactured in a specially designed mould which packs the cement and sand tighter than you can get with poured or stamped concrete. Therefore pavers always become a sturdier and stronger choice than asphalt poured concrete and other surfaces.
