It is required for those taking on hardscape construction jobs to have patience since taking a hurry in estimating them and rushing on them can result in bad jobs and failed projects. One thing that contractors need to avoid is to guess on the amount of bedding sand to use on a pavement project. One expert says that this is a mistake that many contractors make as they put in too much bedding sand in a pavement project and then spoil the project. He said that his company has been receiving several calls that involve their going to repair patios that were already done by some contractors because there was too much bedding sand on them and everything sunk and had to be pushed. Therefore using exact and measured amounts of materials in carrying out a pavement job is essential and important in order that the client does not have to redo the job again. In a hardscape construction project, the final steps involve applying polymeric sand, the sealer and the cleaners. Also, because they are key steps when one wants the lifetime of the pavement to be extended, patience and precision are important in applying them.
