To create an area for outdoor entertaining at the Kuppersmith Project house, a paver patio was installed between the back porch and garage. The process involved putting down a layer of filter fabric, followed by crushed stone, sand, and the pavers. Watch this video to find out more.
In order for the lot on the Kuppersmith Project house to drain properly, a tractor was used to grade the ground so it sloped away from the house and any rainwater runoff flowed away from the foundation. Watch this video to find out more.
Laying a patio out of brick pavers makes a good DIY project, but problems can arise when it comes to locking the pavers into place. Use a polymer-based material, which stays put and flexes rather than cracking.
If you’re planning on installing a ceramic tile floor or brick patio, renting a wet saw to cut the material can make the project go faster and look more professional. Wet saws employ a specially designed blade to cut through the tile or brick, with water circulated over the blade to cool down the blade.
