Icpi Certified Interlocking Paver Installers
What Are Interlocking Pavers?
Interlocking concrete pavers – also called segmental paving – uses high-strength, durable concrete forms that interlock together creating a strong and durable patterned surface.
Interlocking pavers offer a higher standard of presentation for walkways, gardens and water gardens, patios, terraces, and most any other outdoor hardscape project application. Interlocking concrete pavers are appropriate for any application that requires paving.
Interlocking pavers are ideal for municipal and commercial applications such as pool decks, sidewalks, parking lots, pedestrian plazas, roof plaza decks, medians, streets and industrial pavement.
