1" overlay

Gents
Customer wants to dress up the patio around the pool, and there would be some other work as well, steps leading up to a walk, etc.
regular pavers will be too thick, looked at 1" overlay from Pave Loc, don't know a whole lot about that method, in fact nothing, they have no dealers in this area anyway, and they are headquartered in Florida.
Anyways, I guess I'm asking for your input, experience, etc.

Thanks

One of the first things you need to know is the budget

Done a couple of those decks. The most aggravating part is trying to get them all to set down and not wobble on the concrete. Usually just sweeping sand into the joints helps a lot. But you always end up with the pavers that are setting on expansion joints that have to be made to fit.

everything has its limits.

too tight to do an overlay that wont let water seep under the door's sill.

Best thing to do is recommend to the people to call a company that does concrete textering. and forget the overlay idea.

Again- everything has it's limits.

Budget not an issue, at least it hasn't been so far. DVS - I guess that's why I was looking at 1" overlay, it would work under the door where req. pavers would not.
I was also thinking about the concrete texturing or etching or similar.
Was wondering if any of you had experience with the Pave Loc system.

Thanks again

You could do a stamp able overlay with a pattern that looks like pavers or rock.. But no guarantee on cracking over existing cracks. Haha.

They've gotta lot of options.
