Paver Stone Patio Installation Has Changed.
Calgary has a very different local climate where the weather is constantly changing. Chinooks are a nice part of that change, but it can impact how paver stone patios should be installed. Traditional methods included a layer screeded bedding sand, paver installation and more 5mm sand to fill in the cracks.
With the constant freeze and thaw Chinooks cause, this method had a high failure rate. It was also susceptible to damage by the smallest amount of running water, ants and weed infiltration.
After seeing old sand based patio failures over a long time we knew there must be a better way to ensure our clients have a paver stone patio that would stand the test of time.
We found it, tested it and now exclusively build our patios without the use of bedding sand or regular jointing sand. Our base materials are made up of aggregates that eliminate erosion, ant problems and weed growth.
If you are looking for some extra protection we also offer a robust engineered base.

Your New Paver Stone Patio
The Newest Base Preparation Technology.
Aliance has developed polypropylene tiles that are added before paver stones are installed. It distributes point loads by spreading out the area pavers rest on. This limits the chance of shifting on the compacted base aggregates.
The tiles also offer a thermal break between materials that reduce freeze thaw cycles your patio will have to endure in our Calgary climate. We have found the best performance is achieved in combination with our aggregate base preparation.
If you existing concrete is cracked but still in relatively good condition the tiles can be used to install pavers over your existing concrete.
Building with Us
Jointing Polymers Have Changed.
Technology for paving stone joint material has also made a huge impact in the longevity and installation of our paver stones and paver slabs. New calibrated jointing sand with polymer binders outperform traditional sand or polymeric sands used in the past.
This has made paver stones a superior choice for pathways and patios in Calgary. The jointing material glues the pavers together and blocks water from entering the base layers. When a Chinook arrives your pavers stay dry, avoiding the freeze and thaw process that created uneven surfaces of old sand based patios.
Unlike stamped concrete, our high quality installation methods will leave you with all of the benefits of a clean crack free surface, without the worry of ants or weeds.
Excavation, on site sub-surface evaluation and base preparation are all part of the installation. Correct slope, material selection and premium G2 bonding sand are used to ensure your Calgary paver stone patio is built to last.
COLOURS & SEALERS
Enhance the look of your new Paver Stone Patio
High grade sealers and colour enhancers are available for your pavers. The sealer penetrates into the paver pores. This reduces the chance of oil and dirt penetration, keeping your pavers looking new year after year.
The acrylic coating further protects your pavers from deicing salt that can corrode the stone over time. Colour enhancers are available in zero, low & high gloss finishes that bring out the natural colours of your paver stones.
It is best to test your finish on an extra paver before coating your entire patio. This will allow you to see the colour and slip resistance the finish will have.
