Sand and Bituminous Installation
The most economical method for installing architectural pavers is sand setting. It also allows for easy replacement, repair and adjustment. Sand-set installation can be used where soils are well drained and settling is not expected. Proper compaction of the setting bed and the gravel subbed is mandatory. For stability, the sand bed should be no thicker than one inch. Joints should be 1/16" to 1/8", and filled with swept sand. Perimeter restraint is recommended. Bituminous installation is indicated where greater stability is required.
Mortar Thin Set and Thick Set Installation
For grouted paver installations, one of two mortar set methods may be used. Stability of the subbase and concrete substructure is critical. Setting bed, grout and mortar must include a latex or acrylic admixture or waterproofing (follow the recommendations of the admixture manufacturer). Expansion joints must allow for movement. Perimeter restraint is recommended.

Pedestal Installation Details
Tab and pedestal installation is recommended for pavers set atop building structure. Coordination of your installation with a qualified installer, landscape architect or architect is recommended. Perimeter restraint must be carefully considered.
