Brick pavers are used for the driveway
Brick pavers will give you that lovely curb appeal you were looking for. Brick pavers are hard, and can withstand heavy loads, especially when using interlocking pavers.Interested readers can find more information about them at Driveway Pavers near me.
The interlocking pavers have better ability to propagate heavy weight than asphalt concrete.
Concrete pavers typically have a compressive force of 8,000 psi or more. The thickness there can vary between 1 inch and 2 3/8. We strongly recommend using the 2 3/8 pavers for your driveway. Without worries, you’ll be able to park your car, truck, motor home or boat, the brick pavers won’t crack, break or displace under heavy loads.
The pavers, compacted by a Vibratory Roller or a Rotating Plate Compactor, will be mounted on top of four to six inches of compacted sand and lime rock. After the brick pavers are installed, a retaining edge made of concrete should also be constructed around the perimeter of the driveway to prevent the pavers from having a horizontal displacement.
Finally, once the installation has been completed, the installer will again compact sand to ensure that the fine sand enters the joints between each brick so that the interlocking system works to its fullest potential. Once the job is done, you can sit back and take advantage of your new brick paved driveway. A curb restraint may be used in areas with clay or slit soils instead of a trwled concrete edge restraint. This curb protection is normally plastic but with eight inch stakes it bolted to the field. Next, to fill the joints between the bricks, sand is swept over the top of the recently installed paver field. Eventually, it all gets lightweight again and the job is through
