The most elegant, low-maintenance solution for covering concrete.
Although these ¾” thick pavers can be laid over existing concrete with traditional thin-set and grout, (necessary for vehicular applications) they are specifically designed to be laid with thin rubber pads placed under each corner of the pavers, acting essentially as a ‘floating’ paver surface. You can use leveling shims to make slight height adjustments, and since the rubber pads have inbuilt spacer tabs, alignment and spacing is automatically taken care of.
Generally, a cracked patio isn’t a problem. Just make sure the rubber pads are not placed across any cracks.
Most patios will slope slightly to allow water run-off. But if you want a perfectly level patio deck, just stack the rubber pads on top of each other, increasing the height of the stack as you move down the slope. Small adjustments can be made by with rubber shims.
We currently offer over 50 colors of porcelain patio tiles including styles that resemble wood, stone and cement plus modern urban styles, so generally you’ll have no problem in matching these outdoor pavers with your existing indoor flooring or outdoor landscaping.
Unlike concrete patio pavers, porcelain pavers are extremely resistant to staining, are scratch resistant, fade resistant and frost resistant, so you can use them even in the most severe climates. 24” x 24” is the most common size but we also supply plank style 16” x 48” or 12”x 48” pavers as well as 8″ x 8″ or 8″ x 12″ cobblestone tiles.
