Paving Re-Lays – a simple fix

We took a call from a lady who needed the paving tidied up as the property has been sold. This is just one of numerous jobs where a simple relay of some areas lifts the whole area back to its original state.

The pavers affected were lifted, base sand levelled and topped up where needed, pavers re-laid and the job finished with new haunching and sweeping sand applied. For a few hundred dollars the end result was very satisfying.

Pavers laid on about a metre of fill had dropped over time in this corner, job was to lift up and re-haunch.

Finished area, drop off is gone and pavers blended back in as best as can possibly be done short of a total re-lay.

Soil settlement in newly constructed houses is common, even where great care and attention has been undertaken by the construction teams. In this instance the ground had dropped by about 40 mm causing the unsightly gape. In this instance I use washed bedding sand, it is stable, good for filling cracks and easy to re-level.
