As a block paving contractors who has experience in working on paving block or conblock installation projects, we will share some tips and tricks on how to install a good paving block with all of you. This is because we often get questions from consumers about “How to Install a Good Paving Block”.
Here are 10 steps that must be done in the work of installing paving blocks:
Some people are often wrong in terms of paving installation. In the installation of paving blocks, there are several things that need to be considered first
1. Before the paving block is installed, make sure the structure of the land to be paved is in a completely solid state. If it is not yet solid, it can be compacted using a Roller (Wales) machine or a horse stamper. This is so that the land that has been installed with paving blocks does not sink.
2. Adjust the load specifications that will pass through the land to be paved with supporting materials for the foundation of the paving area. These materials can be: Limestone, Base Course, Sirdam, Makadam etc.
3. Make sure the surface of the land to be paved is level. If not, then we must carry out additional work, namely Cut and Fill.
4. Install the concrete tin as a paving block lock, so that the installed paving block does not shift.
5. Spread the stone ash following a predetermined slope and then level it using a wooden jidar.
6. Install the paving block by moving forward, while the paving installer is on top of the paving that has been installed.
7. For the edges of the land / corners that have not been installed with paving (welds), cut the paving blocks using a paving block cutter / paving block cutter.
8. After 100% of the land has been installed with paving blocks, then we fill in between the paving blocks (filling the joint filler) using stone ash.
9. Compact the installed paving block using a baby roller or frog stamper 1 to 2 times so that the interlocking force occurs between the paving blocks with each other.
10. Clean the area of land that has been installed with paving blocks from the remains of stone ash.
Those are a few tips from us, hopefully they can be reference material for you.
