Beautiful Driveway Paving

Driveway Pavers Installation Company in San Diego, Ca

Whether you have a cracked concrete or stamped concrete driveway, an old asphalt driveway, or a gravel driveway, pavers are definitely the driveways of the future. Some of the many reasons paver driveways are becoming the #1 choice for new driveway installs is due to their unique ability to be zipped and un-zipped. Think of the pavers like legos; if you were to get a stain on your driveway, a crack, or needed to get access to underground utilities (i.e. drain-line, sewer, etc.), you can simply remove and replace the pavers as necessary to complete the task.

Another nice bonus to the paver driveways is that the manufacturers back the material with a lifetime guarantee from breaking or cracking. If you have ever walked on driveways that were slippery when wet, the nice part about a paver driveway is that the paving surfaces are non-skid and non-slip so you do not have to worry about anyone falling down or cars losing any traction as they drive on your pavers.

There are many more features and benefits as to why pavers are the best choice when considering a new driveway, however, one of the most important features is that they are absolutely beautiful and they are the only paving surface that actually adds value to your house. The reason why pavers are the only option that adds value to your property is the fact that it will be the last driveway you will ever need. All other paving options will break-down over the years and will have to be resurfaced or replaced.

We can’t say enough about the CARE and ATTENTION TO DETAIL of the installers with INSTALL-IT-DIRECT. It takes precision and that’s exactly what we received. — Howard, San Diego, CA

After moving into our newly constructed home, my wife had several different (not to be named) local companies provide general ideas, and rough estimates, for our backyard, which was barren, hard, rocky soil straight from a bad Western movie. We wanted a clean and relatively simple yet not boring paver installation. Most of these companies gave us estimates plucked from thin air (not itemized), and others were exorbitantly expensive and pushed us to include gimmicky additions that we didn’t need, let alone, wanted. We just needed someone who would work within our budget to implement and finalize my wife’s rough design with nice professional touches drawn from prior experience with other projects (I mean, this is what we pay professionals for, right?).

Michael from Install-It-Direct worked with my wife and I to design our backyard for a reasonable price back in 2014(!) a few months after we moved into the new house. After our very first meeting, Michael visualized our ideas on a design blueprint and provided his professional opinion without charging us a couple of thousand bucks for the design and consultation (a common practice). He clearly itemized the costs so that we could adjust the items within our budget. This entire process was completed in a very short timespan of 2 business days. Fast-forward to 2015, and given the costs of having a new home, we did not have the budget for months to actually go through with the project. During this gap, Michael occasionally kept in contact with us, but never to the point of being annoying. We decided to stick with Michael and move forward with our project.

The original price estimate given to us was competitive. This prompted us to inquire on how expensive it’d be to also install pavers in our front yard and driveway. Michael again came through with a very reasonable price, and we, to his genuine astonishment, agreed to also include the front yard for the project. We really appreciated how accommodating, patient, and respectful Michael was during this time, given that we were neophytes when it came to this sort of construction.

Construction began a little earlier than originally scheduled (which we did not protest) and from the onset it could be seen that the workers intended to finish within the original 2 week completion estimate. Johnny, the foreman, was helpful and made sure his crew and workers got the job done and on schedule.

Our project (2500 sq. ft. pavers and sealing of the pavers, 330 sq. ft. artificial turf, gas line to third party BBQ island, and irrigation system) was completed in about 2 weeks. During the construction, I telecommuted for work most of the week and the crew were very mindful of this – not making much noise and minimizing the amount of dust from activity. We actually received a noise complaint from an overly-sensitive neighbor regarding the construction, and the crew went beyond to attempt to appease our neighbor, even though everything was within the legal limits regarding permits and the times that construction took place. The crew also made sure my wife had clear access to bring the stroller out with our baby without any problems. As a side note, the owner (very friendly guy) and his son come out and perform the sealing of the pavers as the final step. I also don’t know (or want to know to be honest) how they got our project done without having a porta-potty installed, but they managed to do it. To some home owners this may be important (e.g., the lack of having a porta-potty in front of your house during the construction decreases the visual blight).

It’s been a few weeks since the completion of the project and we are very pleased with the results and can’t believe we were able to wait so long to enjoy the backyard. The value of our property has undoubtably increased and our house stands out from the rest in our neighborhood. In fact, we were the first home that used pavers to replace our concrete driveway, and this alone, to our surprise, upgraded the overall look of our property.

I will update this review when needed, especially after our yet-to-be completed BBQ island gets installed the following week. Michael is incredibly kind to return and assist us with electrical wiring and installation of a transformer for powering part of the BBQ island.

Thank you INSTALL-IT-DIRECT. You have won us over.

Paver FAQs

My neighbor just had their Patio and Driveway installed with pavers. They went with a Brand Named Company for the back Patio and went with Install-It-Direct for the driveway. I saw the same crew working on both projects, and noticed that they had different shirts on the second time around. Did the same crew really install both jobs?

Yes, the same crew did both projects. The only difference between the two projects was that the homeowner saved a lot of money the second go around by educating himself and selecting Install It Direct to complete his project. He also ended up with a much better design, as all of our consultants are Professional Designers as opposed to "Salespeople" looking for a BIG commission check.

Can you give me a "Ball-Park Estimate," in regards to how much a Paving Stone Driveway Installation might cost?

Based on a typical 1,000sqft "square driveway (residential)," you are looking at an estimated range of $9,900-$13,900; however, this can vary, depending on the following factors:

  • Paving Stone Manufacturer
  • Paving Stone Type
  • Accessibility (Bobcat Access)
  • City Permits (Carlsbad, Del Mar, Coronado)
  • Type of Demolition Required (Concrete w/ Rebar, Wood, Grass, Roots, etc.)
  • Extras (Wall Build, Step Build, Synthetic Turf, Drainage, Sealer, etc.), etc.

Are there different prices between different manufacturers?

Yes, the prices do vary depending on which manufacturer you choose. Angelus/Orco would be the least expensive, followed by Ackerstone/Olsen, then Belgard.

Are there different prices between different paver types (Tumbled, Non-Tumbled)?

Yes, the prices do vary depending on which paver type you choose. Non-Tumbled would be the least expensive, followed by Tumbled, then Slate Top.

Do I need sealer on my project?

No, sealer is optional. There are various types of sealers, including: joint stabilizer sealer, color enhancer sealer, wet look sealer, etc.; however, the most popular sealer is the joint stabilizer sealer. This particular sealer locks in the joints to help prevent weeds or any other growth from occurring between the pavers. It also helps with inhibiting staining, however, it does not eliminate all stains.
