In the Garden – Dynamex Rise-It Paver Pedestal System
“If you live in a high-rise or condo complex and have a balcony, rooftop or patio space that you would like dressed up a little with beautiful paving instead plain dull concrete, there is a new product that makes the transition more achievable.
Dynamex™ Rise-It is a new paver pedestal system designed specifically to gently lift pavers above the membrane of a building and hold pavers firmly in place.
This is the perfect system for a situation where there is plain grey concrete that needs to be covered without interfering with the building’s outside membrane and water drainage.
Vancouver landscaper Gordon Fretter has already used the Rise-It supports in a new porcelain pavers job at a ground-floor condo in East Vancouver.
“The beauty of this system is that pavers are held perfectly and spaced perfectly and there is no need for grouting or putting down crushed gravel,” he says.
The 15-cm (6 inch) square pads are made of recycled rubber and have a half-inch ridge that crisscrosses in the centre. The pads come with shims that allow for fine adjustment of pavers where the subfloor is slightly uneven. Created and produced over the past year by Epic Polymer, of 92A Avenue, Langley, the Rise-It squares cost less than $2 each.
They can also be used for paved areas around pools and pond areas. The pads raise pavers and support them from the edges, leaving a tiny space underneath for drainage and air circulation.”
