13 Apr DIY patio — it starts at Paver Days
It’s DIY patio time! Paver Days coming to two more locations:
Paver Days are our annual brick yard sales events with deep discounts on selected pavers and in depth installation demonstrations. They’re also a lot of fun. Paver Days draws enthusiastic paver fans from 50-100 miles away.
Our 2018 event at our Madison, NC plant was a little rainy, but we still saw a record day for paver sales. Homeowners came from as far away as Richmond, Virginia to load up their trucks and trailers with full cubes and partial cubes of pavers selected right of the lot.
Darlene Hartwig was back for her fourth Paver Days event. Wheeling in in a Chevy Suburban with a trailer, the petite grandmother from Meadows, NC came for another installment of pavers to add to an ever-expanding patio outside the cabin she and her husband built in the 1970s. Hart says she enjoys installing the brick and gets to share it with her grandchildren.
Hartwig consulted with Pine Hall Brick’s paver installation expert, Harold Beaty. Beaty helped her find the perfect order and oversaw the careful loading of Hart’s experienced trailer.
You might be surprised how excited people can get about clay paver brick. And that’s what you’ll see at Paver Days…Like best friends Pam Drews and Terry Moore from nearby Stoneville and Eden. Drews has been a regular at Paver Days and this year she invited Moore to come along and get her own patio started. Drews walked Moore through the process of finding the right pavers, pulling that sales ticked and purchasing the order in office. Their husbands came along, too.
Marty Drews has plans for their new pavers that include a patio around a swimming pool. He described a drainage system he designed under the pavers and likes the property tax advantages of pavers versus wooden decks.
Johnsie and Doyle Hayes brought their small pick-up in twice to pick up a two loads so they can enhance their home outdoors in Reidsville, NC.
Even if you’re just thinking about what you can do in your backyard, you’ll enjoy the atmosphere at Paver Days. You can get inspired by other DIYers and enjoy a snack while you watch a demo.
