  1. Hi, I’m a handyman but have not yet done pavers yet. I see a lot of work ahead of me but am not sure what a fair price to bid the job should be. Mycustomers already bought your product and materials for a 217 sq ft patio and a 30 inch fire pit kit. No grass to be removed. What is the average price for sq ft for installation?

    1. Installation costs vary based on a number of factors. Please call 877-235-4273 to be put in touch with your local Belgard rep, who can help you further.

  2. I love the pavers used in the lanai on the HGA Dream Home 2016 at Merritt Island. the patio furniture is just beautiful, all of the outdoor space, even the front patio, everything. I love the pavers taking you to the dock, drive way and in front of garage. Was fascinating to watch the transformation.

  3. Had our patio built in 2012 with Belgard pavers. Didn’t even last 6 years. Pavers are “pebblie” looking. Had rep come out and never heard back. Do buy these unless you want to replace them in 6 years time.

    1. Your complaint was forward to the appropriate department, and someone was supposed to reach out to you directly. If this did not happen, let us know by replying to this comment thread.

  4. We have just had Hatteras pavers laid. Waiting for the 30 days to ass for sealing. Should we expect to have weeks grow and if so, how do we address this?

    1. Combining thin pavers and thicker pavers is not an ideal scenario, but it can work in a a couple of different instances. For example, if you are working with an an existing concrete pavement (such as a walkway, driveway or patio), you could overlay the concrete with thin pavers using DriBond and then install thicker pavers abutting the pavement area using a standard paver base. This works well if you want to extend a paved area or add a border. But if you’re creating an entirely new paved area, to install both thick and thin pavers together, you would have to install the thicker pavers first and then adjust the base for the height of the thinner pavers so that everything is level once installed. This would require a skilled contractor who knows what they’re doing.

  5. Read the article about using pavers to revive a tired concrete driveway. How do you address the transition between the pavers and the concrete garage floor and still meet local building code requirements?

    1. Often, all that’s needed is to grind down the edge of the pavers at the transition. Sometimes a french drain is needed.
