What could go wrong

Poor quality of bricks

- Cheaper, sub-standard bricks could deteriorate with time – resulting in crumbling, chipping, cracking and colour fading

Poor quality of sand

- Inferior sand could affect the paving. Clean river sand or dune sand to be used. (NEVER unwashed beach sand)

Weak Mortar mixes

- Jointing, grouting and bedding mortar needs to be of correct strengths. Cheap mixes using insufficient cement will result in brick failure.


- This is a common problem with incorrectly prepared base construction. Your contractor should have the correct compaction equipment and knowledge of correct base treatment.

General Finish

- Inexperience or poor workmanship causes cement staining, deviation in pattern lines, waviness of surface levels.
