What is the Paving Process, and How Does it Work?

Embarking on the journey to add pavement to your outdoor living space or walkways involves several crucial steps:

1. Project Planning: Planning is a vital, often overlooked step that ensures the success of your walkway. Each pavement project is unique, and our planning process is tailored to meet the specific requirements of your renovation.

2. Preparation and Excavation: Ground preparation and excavation may be necessary, depending on the existing conditions beneath your walkway. Compaction and stabilization of the ground may also be required.

3. Laying a Sub Base: The sub base, on which the asphalt is poured, must provide a solid and stable foundation against erosion, usage, and weather.

4. Pouring the Asphalt: The asphalt mixture is heated to a high temperature, making it pliable for laying, grading, and leveling before it cools and hardens.

5. Final Hardening: The last stage involves waiting for the lot or walkway to harden completely, typically drying in a matter of days.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of pavement hardscaping?

Pavement hardscaping offers a multitude of benefits that make it an excellent choice for any outdoor space. Firstly, it enhances the aesthetic appeal of the area by providing a clean and polished look. Additionally, hardscaping improves the functionality of the space by creating a durable surface that can withstand heavy foot traffic and vehicular movement. This makes it ideal for driveways, walkways, and patios. Moreover, pavement hardscaping helps with water drainage, preventing issues such as pooling or erosion. It also reduces maintenance requirements as it is resistant to weeds and requires minimal upkeep. Lastly, hardscaping can increase property value by adding a well-designed and functional feature to the landscape.

What are the different types of pavement hardscaping?

Pavement hardscaping encompasses a wide range of materials and designs that can be used to create durable and visually appealing surfaces. Some common types of pavement hardscaping include concrete pavers, which offer versatility in terms of shape, color, and texture; natural stone pavers, such as granite or limestone, which provide a timeless and elegant look; brick pavers, known for their classic charm and durability; and asphalt paving, a cost-effective option commonly used for driveways and roadways. Additionally, there are innovative options like permeable pavers, which allow water to infiltrate the surface and help with stormwater management.

What are the drawbacks of pavement hardscaping?

Pavement hardscaping, while a popular choice for enhancing outdoor spaces, does come with a few drawbacks. One of the main concerns is the potential for heat retention. The hard surface of pavement can absorb and retain heat, leading to increased temperatures in surrounding areas. This can create discomfort for pedestrians and contribute to the urban heat island effect. Additionally, pavement hardscaping may limit water infiltration into the ground, which can disrupt natural drainage patterns and increase the risk of flooding during heavy rainfall. However, these drawbacks can be mitigated through thoughtful design choices such as incorporating permeable pavement materials and strategic placement of shade-providing elements like trees or pergolas.

How long does pavement hardscaping last?

Pavement hardscaping, when properly installed and maintained, has a remarkable lifespan that can extend for several decades. The longevity of pavement hardscaping primarily depends on various factors such as the quality of materials used, the climate conditions in the area, and the level of maintenance provided. Generally speaking, a well-constructed pavement hardscape can last anywhere from 20 to 50 years or even longer. However, it is important to note that regular inspections, repairs, and occasional resealing may be required to ensure its optimal durability and appearance over time. By following these necessary steps, property owners can enjoy the benefits of their pavement hardscaping investment for many years to come.

How much does pavement hardscaping cost?

Pavement hardscaping costs can vary depending on several factors such as the size of the area, the type of materials used, and the complexity of the design. On average, homeowners can expect to spend around $10 to $30 per square foot for pavement hardscaping projects. However, it is important to note that this estimate is just a rough guideline and prices may fluctuate based on regional variations and specific project requirements. To get an accurate cost estimate for your pavement hardscaping project, it is recommended to consult with professional contractors who can provide a detailed quote based on your specific needs and preferences.

How difficult is pavement hardscaping to install?

Pavement hardscaping installation can vary in difficulty depending on several factors. The complexity of the design, the type of materials used, and the skill level of the installer all play a role in determining the level of difficulty. However, with advancements in technology and innovative installation techniques, pavement hardscaping has become increasingly user-friendly and accessible for both professionals and DIY enthusiasts alike. Modern interlocking pavers, for example, feature easy-to-use systems that simplify the installation process. Additionally, the availability of comprehensive online tutorials and instructional videos further aids in reducing the overall difficulty level. With proper planning, preparation, and attention to detail, pavement hardscaping can be a manageable project for individuals with varying levels of experience.

How difficult is pavement hardscaping to maintain?

Pavement hardscaping is actually quite easy to maintain, thanks to advancements in modern technology. The key lies in the use of self-healing materials that are embedded within the pavement itself. These innovative materials have the ability to detect and repair any cracks or damages that may occur over time. Through a process known as “micro-repair,” these self-healing pavements can effectively mend themselves without any human intervention. Additionally, the use of nanotechnology coatings on the surface of the pavement helps to repel dirt, stains, and other debris, making it easier to clean and maintain. With these cutting-edge technologies at play, pavement hardscaping requires minimal effort and ensures long-lasting durability.

Carlos and his team are truly professionals. Not only he raised a potential issue that none of the other companies we interviewed caught, he also went above and beyond our original scope of project with not much delay even with bad weather condition. Everyone on the team is very professional, always show up on time with company logos on the shirt so we can recognize them when some new faces shows up. The communication during the design and construction phases was also very effective with great suggestions. Over all we are supper happy with our backyard renovation project. The end result is better than our expectations and most importantly it's worry free throughout the whole process. I highly recommend them for any hardscape renovation projects.

Great communication! Great job! Fair price! Easy to work with! They came out walked the job and were very easy to communicate with. Helped figure out a couple of weird little areas that we didn't quite know what to do with. Guys took their time, cleaned up everyday, protected other areas. Highly recommend!

We had a fantastic experience with West Hills Masonry. We reached out to Carlos to have our fireplaces redone in stone veneer. From the point that we contacted him to the end of the project, he was always very respectful, responsive, and professional. You can expect the same from his crew. They did a fantastic job, and we would highly recommend them for your masonry needs. We would hire them again in a heartbeat!

We wanted to an entire backyard remodel consisting of a pool install and carving of a hillside. It was a big under taking and West Hills worked so expeditiously day in and day out for months. If there were any unforeseen issues in our project they communicated clearly what our options were to tackle the problem. Come to think of it, they never told me something couldn't be done. They always came with a solution or a way to adjust to make things work. They also responded promptly to all my questions so our project stayed on course. We were so pleased and would recommend them for any outdoor projects.

We had a great experience with West Hills Masonry.  Carlos is an honest, hardworking owner who had fantastic response time. We had no idea how or where to get started on our new home landscaping.  After contacting Carlos, he was great at listening to what we wanted in our backyard and helped us design the backyard from scratch. He and his team were very communicative about their schedule, listened to exactly what we wanted, and revised their plans throughout the process until we both felt it would be the perfect backyard. They built out two beautiful patios and the backyard with a gorgeous water feature. There were no surprises along the way. We are very happy with the results! The crew members onsite were also always great. Carlos V. was the project manager, and our main point of contact onsite. He was great about answering any questions we had about the project We would highly recommend working with west Hills Masonry. We hope to get the opportunity to work with them again in the future.

Carlos has a very seasoned eye and an attentive ear for home landscape design. We were very impressed with his knowledge in implementing our general design guidelines into his final drawings for submission to our HOA for approval.

We had a great experience with Carlos, Carlos, and the crew. We had about 2,000 square feet of pavers and a patio cover installed by West Hills. We are super happy with the project. Our back yard is incredible now. The crew started when they said they would, and those guys worked super hard. I was amazed at the progress they made each day. The pavers went in very fast. The side yard drainage issue I had is no more! That alone was worth a lot to me. The only hang up was the patio cover. We had to get a permit, and the city took forever because of limited appointments due to COVID. Carlos did his best to keep things moving along. It also took some time to get the materials. I think the price was reasonable for all the work that was done. Carlos checked in regularly, and made sure the job was progressing. Everyone on the crew was very nice when I went out to check on progress. We are very satisfied. I will not hesitate to recommend or use West Hills again in the future.
