Paver Maintenance

One of the advantages of installing brick pavers for your Michigan patio, walkway or driveway is that they can easily be maintained. There are several reasons why pavers would require paver maintenance work, and here are some of the most common issues.

Paver Maintenance Michigan

Settling and Shifting of Brick Pavers

  • Poorly compacted sub-base and/or bedding sand.
  • Not deep enough base material or wrong base material for soil type.
  • Improper pitch causing water to pool in one or more areas.

Cracking or Scaling of Brick Pavers

  • Using cheap brick pavers that are made with poor materials.
  • Using rock salt for de-icing.

Spreading of Brick Pavers

  • Loose or inadequate edge restraints.
  • Poorly laid brick patterns that do not consistently break bond lines.
  • Using the wrong jointing sand which washes out frequently.
