Pavers Patio rejuvenated in Ann ArborEarly this past week, we restored a brick paver patio in Ann Arbor that the past homeowner neglected and installed themselves. The new homeowner was renovating the house and wanted to restore the current pavers patio to its original beauty and function.
Old World Vintage which is produced by Fendt in Michigan. The homeowner wanted to expand the size of the pavers patio to accommodate a newly purchased hot tub. We did inspect the current paver base material and found it to be sufficient for reinstalling. This also saved the customer a considerable cost.
We lifted up the current paving stones, power washed them off, excavated the additional areas to be paved, install the proper base material in the new areas, and recompacted the existing base. We added additional base material to properly pitch the pavers patio out into the yard and away from the house.
Because the homeowner had increased the size of the existing pavers patio design, I suggested that we purchase some more Old World Vintage and use the new paving stones as the soldier course border for framing. This paver design approach would give us enough square feet of paving stone to complete the pavers patio new dimensions and give the overall appearance some consistency.
We spent about a half hour after the pavers patio was completed educating the homeowner on future brick paver maintenance requirements, sealing or polymeric sand options, and the landscape needs around the outside of the patio borders. After receiving a hearty handshake and hug from the homeowners, we reminded them we enjoy outdoor parties and hot tubs too!
