A good sub-base is crucial for best results when installing Rubber Pavers. Once you have excavated your site, add a layer off crushed stone aggregate as your base material. This will also ensure that your base is permeable. It will allow moisture to escape through the joints and evaporate into the base material. If you feel that your site requires more protection from moisture build-up, then it is recommended that you install a plastic perforated drain pipe.
Rubber pavers can be purchased with an inter-locking system for no fuss installation, or otherwise an adhesive will be recommended.
Rubber Pavers, once installed will require little maintenance. It is advised that you regularly clean them with a high pressure water hose; this will remove dirt and debris caught between seams.
