Multi-Level Brick Paver Patio in Canton restored back to original beauty and function!
My team and I began by completely removing all the paving stones from the top of the elevated paver patio. The patio retaining walls areas that had settled were torn down and rebuilt using the same blocks & caps. The existing base material was re-compacted and additional base was added as needed.
Upon completion, the homeowner was ecstatic! The total cost for this restoration, not including sealing, was about $2,800. It sounds like alot but over 17 years it is an average of $165. I explained to the homeowner that the extent & cost of these paver repairs could have been alot less or totally avoided if addressed early on. The homeowner has guaranteed me they will NOT let their brick paver investment plummet again.
From my 28 years of brick paver experience, I believe the average maintenance cost over time is $75-$100/ year for paver patios that are properly maintained with Spring sanding of the joints. You can expect to have touch-up paver repairs done within 5 years that can cost you $350-$500. If you let the patio walls & caps deteriorate, you can expect double or triple this average repair cost.
This raised or elevated brick paver patio was at an extreme state of despair. The biggest advantage of interlocking brick pavers, paver steps, & modular patio retaining wall block & caps is the cost advantage of long-term maintenance cost & appearance over wooden decks and stamped concrete. This paver project is living proof it can be done!
