How To Repair A Paver Patio

Paver Problems Solved!


Are you struggling with issues on your paver patio? From sunken pavers to crooked bricks, you’re not alone. But don’t worry – with a few simple steps, you can restore your patio to its former glory.

Understanding Paver Issues

Pavers are installed on a bed of compacted sand, making them relatively secure. However, the shifting of sand over time can cause pavers to move, sink, or look misaligned. Other factors, such as a lack of sand during installation, insufficient compaction, or poor edging, can also contribute to paver problems.

The Solution: Repairing Your Paver Patio

To repair a sunken, broken, or crooked paver, you’ll need to remove the old one and replace it with a new paver. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Sand
  • Level
  • Pry bar or screwdriver
  • Broom
  • Rubber mallet
  • Hose and water source

Follow these steps to replace pavers:

  1. Wet the compacted sand to soften it and use a pry bar or screwdriver to remove the old paver.
  2. Add new sand to the base and use a level to ensure it is smooth and flat.
  3. Place the new paver and adjust its height using the level.
  4. Add more sand and use a rubber mallet to tap the paver into place.
  5. Use the level one more time to ensure the paver is aligned, and add more sand.
  6. Wet the sand to allow it to settle into the cracks and sweep away the excess.

Why Choose Pavers?

Pavers are an excellent choice for patios because they can flex with temperature changes and are less likely to crack compared to regular concrete. If damage does occur, pavers can be easily replaced in isolated sections without having to remove the entire patio.
