Brick Paver Steps RepairOur continued brick paver repair services took us to another paver patio steps & front porch step reconstruction this past week. For the sake of not sounding redundant, this blog post will be brief with before & after pics. My previous post went into more detail regarding the enormous need for paver patio step repair through out Ann Arbor & Saline.
|Settled Paver Steps|
Once the base material below is compromised, the complete paver step structure is going to fail. Large gaps begin to allow water to erode behind and below the paver block steps & caps. The brick paver landing on top begins to sink and tripping hazards begin to appear.
This client's front paver porch steps exhibited the "smiley face" appearance which occurs often when a contractor does not compact the interior base material properly. They just fill in upwards as they build each step without compacting the base in 2-3" lifts when building brick steps.
When properly installed, brick paver patio & porch steps can give years of performance & spectacular appearance. Paver steps do require some basic maintenance over the years but will be minimal in time & costs if addressed in the early stages of settling or erosion. I expect that these newly repaired paver steps will give many years of safety and appearance that a brick paver client expects.
