Our Expert Services

Setting the standard in Ottawa with over 15 years of specialized experience in interlock projects.

Driveways

Our driveway installations entail thorough groundwork: removing old asphalt, excavating 16″ deep and 1′ wider, compacting soil with geotextile, layering granular base, and screeding with 1/2″ stone dust for drainage. We use 80mm thick interlocking pavers for durability. Completion typically takes 3-4 days for an average double-wide suburban driveway.

Patios

Our patio projects involve efficient access planning, removal of existing structures, thorough excavation, soil preparation with geotextile fabric, layered granular base compaction, proper drainage installation, and finishing with durable interlocking pavers. The process typically takes 3-4 days for a 500 ft2 patio with stairs, with access affecting the timeline significantly.

Walkways

Walkway installations involve excavating 12” deep, wider than the patio, lining with geotextile fabric, packing a granular base in 3 lifts, screeding with 1/2” stone dust for drainage, and finishing with snap edge and polymeric sand. Interlocking pavers at least 60mm thick ensure durability. Completion typically ranges from 1 to 5 days.
