6 Reasons To NOT use Stone Dust Under Your Next Paver Patio or Walkway
There are ways to save money in building your house... going cheap on your foundation is NOT one of them! Walkway and Patio Installations are no different!
Why to NOT use Stone Dust?
It voids ANY and ALL manufacturer's warranties! This fact alone should indicate how badly stone dust is as a base option!
Inadequate Compaction: Stone dust is particularly fine, which makes it difficult to compact effectively. Ineffective compaction can lead to instability in your patio or walkway resulting in frost heaves and settling issues in both the short and long term.
Poor Drainage: Stone dust does not drain well. It tends to retain water, which can lead to issues with dampness and even damage to the pavers over time. We have replaced pavers in Massachusetts set on stone dust only ten years earlier that crumbled in our hand due to deterioration because they never dry out from using a stone dust base layer! A few hundred dollars saved years prior ends up costing thousands more shortly down the line!
Settling and Shifting: Stone dust is more prone to settling than sand due to the flat nature of the material. This can result in an uneven surface and may cause the pavers to shift, leading to instability.
Workability Issues: The use of stone dust can drastically reduce the workability of concrete. This is due to the fact that the particles of stone dust are not rounded like natural sand particles, making it less ideal for use in paver applications.
Freezing Temperatures: In Massachusetts and in areas where freezing temperatures are common, stone dust's ability to retain moisture can lead to frost heave, can create vertical and horizontal movement which can dislodge pavers requiring additional service, repairs and cost.

Cons of Using Pavers On Your Next Walkway or Patio Installation
Paver walkways and patios may not be for everyone, but they do offer an unrivaled blend of durability, elegance, and versatility. But they are not without their challenges:
Expense: Pavers can be more costly than other patio materials such as concrete or gravel. The cost includes not only the pavers themselves but also the labor involved in the installation. The difference is again in quality as well as longevity: Pavers are colored throughout the product was just a thin layer of color on or stain on top of concrete. This results in longer lasting color and reduces the need (and cost) of yearly sealing like stamped concrete requires.
Time-Consuming Installation: Installing pavers is a meticulous process that requires careful planning and execution. This means it can take longer to install compared to other materials raising labor and overhead costs associated with installation. In our option this is quickly offset when considering the increased lifespan of pavers vs. a poured concrete surface.
Weed Growth: If polymeric jointing sand is not properly used weeds and other unwanted foliage can grow in the spaces between them. Polymeric sand is far more expensive than regular sand but reduces weeds and need to refill joints nearly completely compared to an installer that skips this extra "expense". Regular maintenance and often weed control chemicals are required to keep this under control if poly sand is not used correctly.
Shifting Over Time: One potential downside of pavers is that they can shift or become uneven over time. However, this is often eliminated with proper installation of base materials and maintenance.
Maintenance: While pavers are generally low maintenance, they do require some care to keep them looking their best. This may include regular cleaning, resealing, and occasionally replacing damaged pavers. Again, a much lower cost to a standard stamped concrete patio maintenance schedule that is often times required yearly.
So, they're not perfect... but they're close!
