Pavers and Bricks
It’s all about the base! If you thought installing concrete or brick pavers was just too labor intense, think again. The structural superiority and drainage properties of every UBS panel far out weighs a foam pad system making installation a snap. Chose a location, remove the existing grass, compact and install the UBS panel system. Now have some fun creating an amazing paver patio with the pride of knowing you did it yourself.
A Solid Foundation
Several years ago, we were told that 70% of all paver installation failures are due to base failure. Base failure is continuing to plague our industry. A house is only as strong as its foundation and UltraBaseSystems® is the ultimate foundation for any paver installation.
Get the Paver Look You Want
Our interlocking tooth design allows for perfect alignment from panel to panel, eliminating elevation change from stone to stone. You simply prepare and compact your base, lay down a geo fabric, and install our panels. Depending on stone type and desired look, you can install directly on our panels that have been covered with a thin geo textile layer to prevent sand wash through or screed a thin leveling course of sand on the geo covered panels to compensate for any stone height variations. What you will achieve is a solid base system with minimal ground excavation capable of supporting the weight of an automobile and the forces of Mother Nature. It just doesn’t get any easier for the homeowner or professional alike.
If the pavers are top-dressed with sand or other porous medium, then yes. However, if polymeric sand is used and water flow restricted then the pitch of the area must be engineered properly to prevent pools of water from collecting. The panels flow at hundreds of inches per hour so, if it rains, we drain!
If the sub base has been compacted properly and stabilized, then the panels and pavers will have ridiculously high load capacity allowing for vehicle traffic.
We once had a top executive from a global leader of interlocking pavers tell us that in 70% of the cases of failed installations it is the base prep that failed. Our goal is to use the structural integrity of the panel system and its psi strength to create a structurally superior base that drains rapidly and allows the pavers to maintain planarity. By that, we mean that single pavers are far less likely to become misaligned due to movement in the sub base. Each panel locks with the other creating a sea of interlocked panels, all moving in harmony with each other.
