Paver Walkway Weed Problem.

I have a new yard with paver walkways and there are weeds everywhere on them. I thought that if the paver's were packed with sand properly then there was almost no chance of this happening. I know i can spray round-up and kill them( as i did) But should i do anything else to fix the problem like have the paver's re sanded and vibrated. Any comments would help just don't know what to tell the customer.

rip it up and put a new one in you never know, they might say "okay". but to answer your question, round up, then weed whip em out, power wash, then repack it with jointing sand and seal it.
