Driveway, patio or walkway, has some areas that have sunken in, creating an uneven surface. It is very important to repair such findings not only for aesthetic purposes but also for safety reasons. Any one may trip over and injuring themselves on your property, whether it is family members or friends.

Before we repair your sunken pavers, we will determine the cause of the damage. This will enable us to find the cause and eliminate it, so the same repairs are not needed down the track. It may be water erosion damage, in some cases we use mortar rather than sand, for a more permanent installation in that trouble spot. If the damage has only been caused by the ground settlement over the years which is very common. At stone world construction, we have all the expertise to help u with your interlocking and retaining walls repairs at a very low cost.

Our repair process include the following:

Step One: Remove Damaged Pavers

We Start off by removing all damaged Pavers from the site. Whether they are loose, chipped, broken or have sunken from underneath, remove all the pavers from the affected areas and the surrounding areas.

Step Two: Replace the Sand

Once we have removed all affected pavers, it is now time for you to replace the sand bedding. It must be replaced to the same level as the unaffected areas. The reason for using coarsely grained sand is so that it compacts together well forming a strong base bedding for the pavers to set into, and this will prevent sinking in the future.


Step Three: Resetting Pavers

Now we start to replace the old pavers with new ones. Then we constantly check the level of the new pavers with the surrounding ones, with the use of a level. Use the rubber mallet to tap the pavers into the sand bedding.

Step Four: Filling the Joints

Once the new pavers are set into the limestone screening, we now sweep sand over the area, which will fill up the joints between the newly set pavers. Then we run a plate tamper then we spray the area with water, just to dampen it, this will allow the sand to sink down. Then repeat the process of sweeping the sand over the area until the joints are completely filled.
