The interlocking stones are individual pre-cast pavers that just like gemstones. They come in a great variety of colors, shapes and sizes to create an individual and unique look. Interlocking stones can transform any place into the center of attraction, be it a driveway, patio or pathway.
Interlocking stones are set in a friction of class 2 base rock and sand mixture, in which they do not shift around at all and remain flexible. This flexibility means that with the hot and cold weather we experience in Canada, the expansion and contraction do not create deformations on the paving stone installation.
The installation starts with constructing a solid base. After excavation, installed is a ¾ inch road base (crushed rock with fine material) followed by an additional 4 inches for a patio or 6-8 inches for a driveway and compact it in lifts, using a vibrating plate compactor. We then "screen" an inch or two of bedding sand for a perfectly flat surface.
The stone is laid in a pattern and color chosen, using string lines and squares. Then, cut stone is inserted and an edge restraint is installed around the perimeter of the paved area. The interlock is covered with joint sand and a plate compactor is run over the surface to seat the stone in the bedding sand.
All installations come with a 30 day satisfaction guarantee and a 5 year warranty on the labor.
