Not sure why you'd want pavers over concrete and mortar WITHOUT mortared joints keeping the water out. It appears you're in a cold climate, not a great place to let all of that water seep under the brick and freeze.......
They are all laid flat, but there was supposed to be no gap and then polymeric swept into the cracks. I pulled the brake before they could do sand.

Depending on brick Ron, this pattern can be laid without cutting any...........

Re: Brick patio install gone wrong


Add a ll of the bricks, divide by four, and that is likely the number of brick sections that you will need to fill in the edges to get clean lines. Ron

OK, it must be an illusion then. I still can't understand why they'd go through the trouble of wet-setting them in mortar just to use polymeric sand. Those brick are relatively uniform in nature, they would have laid flatter (and much easier, faster, and straighter) dry-laid on the slab. At this point, I don't know what other option you have than to persue them to remove them and try again.....

As a mason, I've laid plenty of brick patios, and even I have no idea what you're talking about.................

This is lousy installation, nothing more.

And you are going to get varying color in a batch, due to the materials not being consistently mixed at the brick works.

Make them re-do this. And this time NO ALCOHOL on site.

I don't mean to derail this, but could you find out what they were drinking/smoking..... must be some good stuff... how'd they get home???

Yes... You're entirely right... that is krap.

??? The number of bricks you end up cutting to fill the edges is significantly less than that in varies by the size of the area you are doing. Obviously a long skinny area requires more cutting but even then if laid out correctly you should only be cutting half of the edge bricks and none of the center ones.

Re: Brick patio install gone wrong


Nice of you to pay someone to attempt to learn how to lay brick. Better pay him some more, he needs more practice. Better yet, do it yourself. You and your drunken friends would do a better job than that.
