Square or rectangular porcelain pavers offer a much more attractive option than bland concrete surfaces around pools due to their unmatched range of colors and styles, including stone like finishes that resemble sandstone, limestone, granite, marble and travertine pavers as well as wood look options. Although the most common size of porcelain paver is 24″ x 24″, a wide range of other sizes are also available, including sizes as large as 48″ x 96″
As with our plank style porcelain pavers, these square or rectangular pavers are typically laid over rubber support pads or adjustable height pedestals, depending on height requirements. If preferred, they can also be laid in thin set and grouted.
It is most important with any pedestal supported paver installation, and especially around pools, that sideways movement of the pavers is minimized. Pavers should be pushed as tightly as possible against the inbuilt spacer tabs on the pedestal heads, a solid containment should be constructed around the perimeter and a gap of no more than 1/8″ should exist between the paver edge and the pool coping.
