HOW MUCH WILL A TYPICAL INSTALLATION COST?

We supply & install our material. Depending on the scope of your job, your price per square foot could be as low as $18 or as high as $25. The location of your job, the size, soil composition, unique attributes, and products selected affect this price range. Each job is bid to the specific requirements of the client.

HOW LONG DO INSTALLATIONS NORMALLY TAKE?

We strive to complete most typical residential applications such as driveways, walkways, and patios in two or four days. Pools, retaining walls and other larger jobs can vary. Many factors can affect job timeliness including weather, material availability, job access and conditions.

CAN WEEDS GROW THROUGH MY PATIO OR DRIVEWAY? HOW DO I GET RID OF THEM?

Weeds cannot grow up from below the pavers surface. The growth of weeds and grasses results from airborne seeds. A household weed killer can prevent this if necessary.

WILL THE PAVER COLORS FADE?

SBE uses only high quality products. Tremron Group warrants the structural integrity of its products for  25 years from the date of installation. Because of the suns ultraviolet rays some mild overall fading may occur over time.

HOW DO CONCRETE PAVERS COMPARE TO STAMPED OR PATTERNED CONCRETE?

Patterned and stamped concrete is merely poured concrete stamped topically with a pattern. It is susceptible to all of the cracking, durability and maintenance problems as is regular concrete or asphalt. Stamped concrete also requires expansion joints every ten feet or more. These expansion joints can be very distracting in various patterns. Concrete interlocking pavers create a more uniform, durable, and aesthetically pleasing surface.

SHOULD I SEAL CONCRETE PAVERS?

Sealing is not essential in many applications but it offers some benefits like making spills and stains easier to remove. Liquid sealers are applied after the pavers are installed and are cleaned. We have a special "natural look sealer" that we apply in our pavers. Once applied, the sealers soak into the concrete and into the joints. The sealers in the joints help keep the joint sand in place and prevent weeds and ants.

DOES SBE OFFER "THE CHEAPEST PRICES IN TOWN"?

Not always, however SBE can offer you the best value for your money. We are able to beat many competitors’ prices and back it up with excellent service. There are many ways to cut corners and shave cost off your project from not using a suitable thickness of underlayment, to not installing a proper edge restraint, to using “seconds” or sub-par pavers. We do not practice any of these methods. We get 2-3 calls a month from customers whose paver contractor has “bailed out” on their bad installation and refuse to honor their warrantee.
