Porcelain Paver Project
This San Diego house was a very fun project for us. The homeowner wanted to modernize their backyard and allowed to use the all new Belgard Porcelain Paver to create a look of real wood while giving the backyard an ultra-modern look and feel. You can see that the Sundeck Spirit porcelain paver complimented the modern firepit and spa which made these areas the new focal points of the entire backyard.
- Paver Type: Belgard Porcelain Pavers

Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the difference between clay and concrete pavers?
Clay pavers use real clay that has been mixed together and baked in a kiln to very high temperatures. Concrete pavers use special equipment to blend concrete and colorings by using high pressure instead. Both methods have many practical applications throughout Southern California.
Do you perform other specialist masonry work?
Sure – our professional team specializes in matching and blending many materials to provide the most seamless and undetectable finish.
What is ‘interlocking paving’?
This is a slightly outdated term that is still used to describe three quite distinctive leveling methods. A fuller description of these methods would be: ‘rotational interlock’ (prevention of tipping), ‘horizontal interlock’ (prevents against spreading) and ‘vertical interlock’ (stops sinkage). It is important to get this right because every project requires a proper sub-base set to an appropriate size and thickness. For example, you’ll need thicker material for load-bearing driveways whereas patios can be much thinner.
Getting interlocking pavers right is essential and our team includes some of the best concrete pavers you’ll find throughout San Diego County and Southern California. Give us a call if you have any queries about interlocking pavers, and we’ll be happy to talk you through the options!
Should I seal the surfaces after you have finished?
We do recommend that clients look at having their fresh concrete pavers sealed once they have been installed. Doing so will help to protect the surface from any stains (such as oil from leaky cars). We only use the best breathable materials because they should last much longer compared to the alternatives. Sealing these over should extend their warranty or lifespan even longer – plus it makes them easier to clean. They’ll rarely need more than a quick hose-down. This is why our experts recommend sealing concrete pavers.
Can ugly/damaged/faded concrete be restored?
Just because it is looking tired doesn’t mean that otherwise strong and stable concrete should be entirely replaced. Our expert residential and commercial design and landscaping company has successfully restored many surfaces throughout Southern California by carefully applying recoloring materials over those problematic parts. The end result for stone or concrete pavers looks as good as new.
