Brick Walkways & Patios5 year warranty

sidewalk twin oaks 2All brick walkways and patios will be excavated to a minimum depth of 8” below the final intended grade. A 6” sub-base of crusher run gravel will be installed and compacted every 3-4” with a vibrating compactor. Temporary screeds or forms are set up to reflect the layout and pitch of the walk or patio. A 1” layer of sand is then screeded or leveled over the screeds. This becomes the paver-bedding course on which the pavers are to be laid. Any brick cuts necessary to complete the chosen pattern will then be made. Snap-edge brick restraint will then be installed to retain all exposed edges. Polymeric sand is used to fill the spaces between the pavers. The plate compactor is used once again to compact the pavers into the bedding course. This procedure is the recommended method of installation by all the various paver manufacturers and should not be deviated from in methods and materials. Any such deviation is incorrect and is considered to be a shortcut, which will inevitably result in an inferior end product after successive years of freeze thaw cycles.

Wall Construction /Stone Step Systems5 year warranty

All walls will have a filter fabric wrap on the inside face to prevent soil erosion. All walls will be battered back (setback) to account for soil pressure (except for those wall systems designed to go straight up and not to any height greater than 2’). Drain tile will be installed in any wall 4’ or higher or in any wall with extreme hydraulic situations. Wall and step caps will be secured with an adhesive caulk (paver bond).All walls and steps will be constructed on a 6” crushed stone base of gravel.
