    Any concerns with drainage ?

  2. P. Santos on February 10, 2021 at 5:19 pm

    This old timers done a good job, looks good but don’t think its a good method with those plastic covers

  3. TotsAndTattors on February 10, 2021 at 5:19 pm

    Completely unnecessary to use this product. Doesnt really add anything. Also just want to point out that you couldnt use this system if your pavers were slightly different thicknesses as you cant adjust the depth of each paver if necessary. All in all this product would cause more trouble than good.

    Jeepers the cost of the underlayment product is huge..I just get 2 x 2 concrete and drop them on the grass ..spray first with roundup..and after my gills swell up fill the cracks …viola. no digging..i do the edges with blacktop patch by hand so i can weedwhack no problem.. 4 sq ft costs 4 bucks

    Can’t find a roller compactor anywhere. Local or online.

  6. Edward Perez on February 10, 2021 at 5:22 pm

    how do i activate my laborers

  7. Mark Vasiloff on February 10, 2021 at 5:23 pm

    Can you use sand instead?

  8. Dennis The Menance on February 10, 2021 at 5:25 pm

    A VERY NICEA! ( My Italian is lacking after being in the USA too long.. Only time will tell in a few Yrs.. We used Concret dust in the cracks and sprayed and then compacted that and boy did it do the job..Like doing tuk pointing that a ( Free) Mason does! a Fellow Brother for 45 yrs now..;-) 66′ Veteran

  9. DrMario Pepper on February 10, 2021 at 5:26 pm

    Thought you weren’t supposed to use a plate compactor with the poly boards? Maybe that’s just for the pavers.

  10. Dixon Cider on February 10, 2021 at 5:33 pm

    I’ll stick to crushed stone base.

  11. Lucas Liang on February 10, 2021 at 5:33 pm

    No gravel?

  12. Edilven Orozco on February 10, 2021 at 5:34 pm

    Alos gueros los traen para los videos pero los paisa son los que sacan el jale puro mexican power

  13. DrMario Pepper on February 10, 2021 at 5:36 pm

    And how can it be level but sloped for drainage. I’m confused

  14. Rob I on February 10, 2021 at 5:40 pm

    What does the "activation" do? I neglected to wet my pavers down after I was done.
    It’s been 3 days now. Is it too late for me to activate? What does that do?

  15. Eternal Battering Ram on February 10, 2021 at 5:41 pm

    Just what the world needs, more plastic buried in the ground.

  16. irishdarbykd on February 10, 2021 at 5:44 pm

    How much sand does it take? I’m making an 11ft×16ft. How much polymeric sand would that require? I would love to not over or under purchase if possible. Thanks.

  17. WILL on February 10, 2021 at 5:45 pm

    You should of shown how you finished the edges.

  18. Justin Salamin on February 10, 2021 at 5:49 pm

    Looks like more work than conventional methods. And I wouldn’t take advice from a guy using a plastic level.

  19. Silverio Castillo on February 10, 2021 at 5:50 pm

    No baserock. In five years you will repair this job

  20. Daryl Lidab on February 10, 2021 at 5:51 pm

    Just so you know its 47 seconds for the activation part lol.

  21. Louise Janney on February 10, 2021 at 5:51 pm

    We need more on why what are you doing

  22. Jorge Castellanos on February 10, 2021 at 5:52 pm

    I have installed pavers for over 20 years if I would’ve kept good records in my previous company I could tell you how many sqf.
    I see all this people commenting and being so closed minded to new techniques and ideas, try it do a small area in your shop, home, relative, test it on your own then bash it or post the results, there is lots of tough and engineering that went developing this product.
    15 years ago or so I met a guy that claimed he didn’t use sand as the final layer instead 1/4” stone most if not all around him laughed or didn’t believe it, I was the only one willing to try it started with a small area and used on 99% of my projects and cas attest is much better than just sand, last seminar I attended unilock was encouraging and recommending this .

  23. george S. on February 10, 2021 at 5:52 pm

    No gravel?

  24. Jason Bishop on February 10, 2021 at 5:53 pm

    Where can I find info on that roller?? Brand?

  25. Will Villegas on February 10, 2021 at 5:54 pm

    Can you share more information I. Where to get the edger system you used and the boards? Jobs looks great. Wonder is snow or freezing temperatures will impact the boards. Thanks.

  26. Chris Mastri on February 10, 2021 at 5:55 pm

    When complete do you cover the edges in dirt and plant grass? I have exposed EZ base around my edges.. not sure what to do with them

  27. Berg on February 10, 2021 at 5:58 pm

    I guess the Romans got it wrong when they built their roads 2500 years ago for not using Techniseal…LOL

  28. Richard Sullivan on February 10, 2021 at 5:58 pm

    Terrible installation you should not be doing videos you didn’t even interlock one course to the next

  29. j james on February 10, 2021 at 5:58 pm

    Would these work for a shed base with 2’x2′ pavers?

  30. krzysiek inininin on February 10, 2021 at 5:59 pm

    in two days, something like that.Are you hammering nails into this shit and do you think it will be permanent? You use as many tools as a small building. I would not let you do such a shit on me.

  31. Dennis The Menance on February 10, 2021 at 6:00 pm

    And these guys Don’t wear Gloves( to Protect their Hands) even Cheap Surgical type Gloves? Geech, their Wives must really like that.. NOT!

  32. Walter on February 10, 2021 at 6:01 pm

    Those things are a total waste of time and money there is no point of that is put the pavers right on top of the sand just an extra gimmick

  33. Brandine Morgan on February 10, 2021 at 6:01 pm

    We’ve retired to Albuquerque and have an acre of land. Weve rocked a lot of it nicely done but in the backyard weve got massive issues with squirrels and moles, gophers etc. Two holes are under new pool equipment, any ideas what’s best?

  34. Rob I on February 10, 2021 at 6:01 pm

    I used these panels and do not like them. When I walk on my 12-inch square pavers, I can hear them moving. Without the panels, I can pound them into the sand to snug them up, but pounding them into the foam rubber panels is pointless. My pavers rub up against adjoining pavers and I can hear them. It’s annoying when I walk on them. I’d rather use a paver base aggregate.

  35. kyesniper on February 10, 2021 at 6:02 pm

    As someone who owns and operates a couple of landscape companies, I can’t seem to understand this product for use by anyone other than a DIY homeowner. Yes, there is less excavation and material going back into the project, but that also removes the buffer that a 3/4" clear stone would provide between the ground and the bedding sand which would make these stones more susceptible to movement over time, no? Plus compacting the sand after doing the finish grade and then laying the stone would most definitely cause more harm than good, opening up imperfections caused by walking over the sand etc during compaction, it’s very clearly shown in the video that there are several inconsistencies and air pockets beneath the mats, how would that be better than simply compacting the stone after it’s been laid? I’ve considered moving to a system like this several times, but I can never see it being beneficial in the long term.

  36. DrMario Pepper on February 10, 2021 at 6:03 pm

    I need to find a video on how those lines are suppose to be used.

  37. Doug Macduff on February 10, 2021 at 6:04 pm

    Too much work. I lay them down. Done.

  38. Celso Dias on February 10, 2021 at 6:04 pm

    Good job but looks like you take 3 days for this small job 15×15

  39. house machine on February 10, 2021 at 6:05 pm

    I don’t know but I see lippage

  40. childz22 on February 10, 2021 at 6:06 pm

    Is this really produced by techniseal… this is terrible.

  41. Jonathan Ruiz on February 10, 2021 at 6:06 pm

    Do you ever remove the plastic edging

  42. Ewan Black on February 10, 2021 at 6:08 pm

    I’m sorry – but to me this is the dumbest thing I’ve seen in a long time.  All they’ve done is excavate earth – no hardcore, just sheeting over bare earth, then sand – which will 100% compress and move over time, before putting plastic tiles on top, and then just laying flags directly on top. Ok – the flags will grip to the plastic tiles – but the plastic tiles themselves will still sink and move over time.  I’ve yet to see any substitute for a properly prepared and compacted hardcore base when laying blocks or flags.

  43. house machine on February 10, 2021 at 6:10 pm

    Why does the sand get compacted after a feeding? Does that not screw up the flatness?

  44. Open Eye on February 10, 2021 at 6:11 pm

    Easy on the labor, very hard on the wallet.

  45. Geovanni Aguilar on February 10, 2021 at 6:12 pm

    What’s the size?

  46. jimychoo67 jimychoo67 on February 10, 2021 at 6:13 pm

    I am a paver and that is the worst job I have ever seen not level and looks terrible amateurs lol

  47. David Severance on February 10, 2021 at 6:14 pm

    Can this system be used for a deck with Belgard porcelain pavers on top? build a box for the sand? or just put the Techniseal on top of plywood?

  48. Cals Gone on February 10, 2021 at 6:17 pm

    Ez base 😂heard it all. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it

  49. Lucy Marion on February 10, 2021 at 6:17 pm

    How did you cover the edges? When you were finished, it still looked exposed.

  50. bmxer07 on February 10, 2021 at 6:17 pm

    No crusher run? What the hell is technoseal itll be ruined in a year
