I may be in the wrong forum. My brick patio is being torn out due to recent flooding into my house and I need some advice in replacing it. I read about Systems Paving. But the carpenter gave me a bid for replacing the brick with brick. Any advice will be appreciated.

After a quick glance at the Systems Paving (Newport Beach, CA), I would say that the system would be far superior to what a carpenter would do.

You may not need a full blown good pavement for a patio.

I would imagine that your carpenter will just replace the pavers you have in the same manner they were originally installed.

Pavers set on a compacted based and vibrated into position with a sand interlock are very stable and durable and used for driveways and streets, but do work for patios if you want that level of quality and $'s.

Thanks Concretemasonry!

I can't get any idea of what the cost of Systems Paving.
I had a contractor measure supplies I would need. My
patio is 373 sq.ft. I called Systems Paving but they told
someone would have to make an appointment with me.
My carpenter drilled out the brick and concrete and is
lowering the patio. Everyone agreed the patio was poorly
constructed thus the flooding. Would you think brick would
cost less?
