What Is Our Paving Stone Laying Process?
HML Construction has an experienced and dedicated team of construction experts in Canada. We adhere to a systematic approach for all our projects. HML’s process for paving stone laying is:
1) Planning and Layout
We help you decide where the pavers will go and determine if you have enough space for it.
2) Calculating The Needed Amount Of Pavers
Then, we measure the width and height of the area that needs to be paved.
We establish the height the pavers need so that they do not exceed the height.
4) Base Material
Once the excavation step is completed, we lay the base material.
5) Edge Restraints
If the edge restraints are not installed, the pavers are likely to separate and move.
6) Sand Bedding
Before laying the pavers on the surface, we make sure a layer of sand bedding is placed over the base material.
7) Laying Pavers
Our experts then lay the pavers according to the pattern and arrangements decided.
8) Sand Joints
This involves sweeping the sand over the surface that fills up the pavers into the soil.
After it all, we sweep and clean the entire area to remove all debris and extra materials.
