The interlocking concrete pavers we use in your pavement are extremely durable. We only work with manufactured pavers using specific sands, crushed sands, crushed stone, cement, water and color fast pigments which provide most of the color.

A computer operated machine, especially designed for this purpose, forms the concrete mixture into the shapes used in your pavement. Most manufactured pavers are made in a beveled edge around the top of the paver. The bevel, or chamfer, ensures that there is no tripping hazard if a paver happens to be slightly higher or lower than its neighbors. The chamfer also reduces the chance for chipping of the paver edge.

You will notice that the surface of your paver is slightly coarse to the touch. This texture is to provide a safe non-slip walking or driving surface even when wet. The very dense structure of the paver minimizes the amount of moister which can penetrate and cause damage during freeze cycles.

West Hills Masonry places the pavers in a sand setting bed surrounded by an edge restraint which keeps the desired uniform joint shapes between pavers and prevents the edge pavers from moving outward. The sand used to fill the joint spaces provides verticle interlock between pavers and allows the pavement to behave as a strong but flexible mat.

We are proud to only use products made in America. By hiring West Hills Masonry to do your next home project, you not only support local manufacturing businesses in Orange County, Riverside County, and L.A. County, but you support a local service business as well. Help us keep jobs in the U.S.A. by supporting our local businesses, and continuing the American dream!
