How to repair a paver patio?

Over time, you begin to notice your beautiful paver patio losing its beauty. You begin to notice cracks, you start noticing a crooked brick here and a crooked brick there, and you also start seeing some pavers sinking into the ground. But how did this happen?

So, What went wrong?

The main reason is unlike bricks set into mortar, pavers are set on a bed of compacted sand. Although they are very secure, because the sand shifts over time, the pavers start moving as well. On top of all this, the winter cycles of freezing and thawing take a toll on them, too.

Or maybe not enough sand was installed in the first place at the time of paver patio installation. Or maybe the drainage problems around your patio is the real culprit.

Whatever the cause of the problem may be, at some point or another your paver patios repair   will need a bit of attention to get everything lined up straight again.

How to repair a paver patio?

Whatever the damage may be, whether you have broken pavers, crooked pavers or sunken pavers, the fix is usually the same. You will first have to remove the damaged pavers, and replace it with a new one.

Materials you will need:

  • Sand
  • Small pry bar or flat screwdriver
  • A broom
  • A rubber mallet
  • A hose and water source

The steps to remove and replace pavers:

  • Usually when a paver is crooked and broken, it is impossible to fix the pavers without replacing them. So, first of all remove the bad paver or pavers, for this you may need to get the compacted sand wet to soften it. Remember to keep a small pry bar handy or flat screwdriver to make the pavers loose.
  • Pavers require a solid base on which to rest. Start adding new sand to the base, a bit at a time. Then smooth out the sand, nice and flat, and tamp it down really well. Remember the more solid a base you provide, the more secure the new paver will be.
  • Check if the new paver is exactly the same height as the pavers around it. Adjust if needed.
