    It is important that an experience contractor is used or consulted when laying pavers. Each environment is differnent and therefore may require different techiniques and methods when planning and laying pavers.

    • Drainage: Paver performance is majorly determines on how weel the paved area will drain surface and subsurface water.
    • Levels: The ground should be levelled and should be used to encourage good drainage of the paved surface.

    Laying NewTech Pavers
    When laying pavers yiou should alway be careful not to mark the pavers and gloves should be worn. String lines should be used as a guide and edge paver contained to pervent erosion of the bedding material.
     
    Two methods can be used when laying pavers:
    • Rigid Base:  bedded on a sand and cement mortar bed up to 30mm thick, or glued down using a suitable flexible adhesion agent, taking care to ensure there are no voids which could cause drumminess or structural cracks.
    • Flexible Base: Evenly spread a layer (approx. 100mm thick) of roadbase or manufactured sand over the required area. Compact this material using a plate compactor.
