    • What is efflorescence?

      Efflorescence is a white, salty powder that appears on the surface of bricks, blocks, pavers and retaining walls as a result of moisture penetrating the product and partially dissolving the lime contained in the cement used to make concrete masonry. This dissolved solution then migrates to the surface and as the water evaporates, leaves a white lime haze. Efflorescence is harmless and can be removed with a stiff bristled broom, then rinsing with clean water. It is important to note that natural weathering will eventually stop efflorescence from occurring.

    • Can Euro® Classic and Slate pavers be used for driveway applications?

      Yes, Euro® Classic and Slate pavers can be installed for driveway projects when installed on an engineered concrete slab which has been designed to accommodate expected loads. Pavers should be installed with a proprietary adhesive or suitable mortar base.

    • Can I use pavers around pools?

      Yes, our Euro® range of pavers is suitable for use around saline environments. However, they should be sealed with a premium penetrating sealer.

    • Can I use pavers on my driveway?

      Yes. Adbri Masonry has a range of pavers available for driveway use. However, it is important to note, not all pavers are suitable for this application. Click here to find a driveway safe paver that best suits you.

    • Do I need to seal my driveway paving?

      It is recommended that all paved driveways are sealed to combat stains such as oil, however it is not necessary.

    • Do pavers fade?

      Adbri Masonry pavers are created with colour throughout (with the exception of premium Euro® pavers), varying degrees of fading can occur naturally depending on the location of the paving, the environment, whether it is sealed, how it is sealed, as well as the volume of pedestrian or vehicle traffic. To find out how best to protect your pavement from fading please call us on 1300 365 565.

    • Do pavers need to be sealed?

      No, not for any structural purposes, however, sealing pavers may have aesthetic benefits as sealers can minimise the effect of grime, stains and efflorescence.

    • How can I get stains off my paving?

      Many materials such as leaves will stain pavers only if they are left in prolonged contact with the pavement. Accordingly the best strategy to keep a pavement in pristine condition is to ensure that all rubbish and leaves are regularly removed using sweepers and thereafter, the pavement is flushed with water.

      Light, non-penetrating stains can often be removed by brushing with a stiff broom in conjunction with a light application of sharp sand. Where persistent stains do occur they can be removed using a variety of chemicals and proprietary cleansing agents. These must be chosen with regard to occupational health and safety and the environmental impacts of runoff etc.

      For more information on cleaning and stain removal, please refer to the Concrete Masonry Association Australia’s Concrete Segmental Paving Maintenance Guide.

    • How do I clean concrete masonry?

      To clean dirt or other particles first try a simple soft bristle brush. If further cleaning is necessary a mild detergent mixed with water is able to be used, however this will require a final step of rinsing the area with clean water to remove any remaining cleaning solution. Never use wire brushes, acid cleaners, power washers, bleach or paint remover.

      For more information on cleaning and stain removal, please refer to the Concrete Masonry Association Australia’s Concrete Segmental Paving Maintenance Guide.

    • How do I lay pavers?

      Pavers are easy to lay and can add great visual affect and value to your home. Refer to this step by step How to Lay Pavers Guide for more information.

    • Is drainage needed for my paving project?

      Surface drainage is important and should be considered for all paving projects.

    • What are the benefits of concrete segmental paving?

      • Mass production under factory conditions ensures consistency, quality and dimensional accuracy.

      • Ultimate design flexibility with a diverse range of shapes, sizes, a near limitless range of colours and surface textures.

      • Utilising specifically designed product mixes, with a reliable supply of raw materials, allows Adbri Masonry to consistently reproduce products in the same colour and finish, year after year.

      • The mix used to create a segmental paver can be adjusted to include recycled and industrial by-products as substitutes for raw materials and still meet all relevant Australian Standards.

      • The ability for segmental pavements to be pulled up to access buried services and then re-laid, not affecting the look and feel of the area post-maintenance.

      • Concrete pavements can be used immediately after installation, not requiring time to cure.

      • Segmental concrete pavers are very durable, being less likely to curl, shrink or crack compared to other alternatives.

      • Concrete pavers utilise less cement per square meter when compared to in-situ concrete.

      • There is no requirement for steel to be used in supporting the pavement, unlike other flooring alternatives.

    • What is a permeable paver?

      A permeable pavement is an important component to an environmentally effective, water saving system beneath the surface. When installed correctly, permeable pavers form a series of drainage holes in the pavement surface. These drainage holes are filled with a small aggregate to allow water to filtrate through the surface layers, minimising stormwater run off, downstream flooding and pollution problems, with the added benefit of reducing the need for costly underground retention systems.

      For more information see the Concrete Masonry Association Australia’s MA56 Guide to Permeable Interlocking Concrete Pavements.

    • What is efflorescence?

      Efflorescence is a white, salty powder that appears on the surface of bricks, blocks, pavers and retaining walls as a result of moisture penetrating the product and partially dissolving the lime contained in the cement used to make concrete masonry. This dissolved solution then migrates to the surface and as the water evaporates, leaves a white lime haze. Efflorescence is harmless and can be removed with a stiff bristled broom, then rinsing with clean water. It is important to note that natural weathering will eventually stop efflorescence from occurring.

    • What sealers would you recommend?

      Adbri Masonry recommends the use of Klen sealing products, which are available in both an acrylic and penetrative sealing options. Please call us on 1300 365 565 for further information on sealing options and where to purchase Klen products.

  • RETAINING WALLS
    • Are concrete footings required to build my retaining wall?

      Not necessarily, when constructing your un-reinforced retaining wall below the maximum un-reinforced height, a concrete footing is not required for all products. Please refer to our Segmental Retaining Wall brochure for more details on what is required to build your wall.

    • At what wall height should I consider drainage when using Retaining walls blocks?

      Retaining walls of any height should have drainage to remove water from behind the wall. The most popular means of doing this is through the use of agricultural pipe. If you are unsure, refer to our Segmental Retaining Wall brochure for the step by step retaining walls installation guide.

    • Can I build my retaining wall higher than the maximum un-reinforced wall heights listed for each products?

      Some products are able to be built over the specified maximum un-reinforced height, however it is crucial that a certified engineer is used to design and assist in building the wall.

    • Can I build my wall higher if placed on a concrete footing?

      No, the installation of footing does not add to the structural stability of the walling system. If you wish to construct your wall above the maximum un-reinforced height, you may need to select another type of walling system and/or consult a registered engineer.

    • Do experienced contractors need to build my retaining wall?

      No, as long as the wall is constructed under the maximum un-reinforced height, most of our residential retaining walls can be completed without the help of an experienced contractor. However if you have never built a retaining wall before, refer to our How to BuildRetaining Wall Guide,’ or contact us on 1300 365 565 to find your nearest recommended contractor.

    • Do I need an experienced contractor to build my wall if it is over 800mm high?

      Most councils will require property owners to get council approval prior to building walls over 800mm in height (this may be slightly higher for some councils), so you will need to check with your local council before building your retaining wall. When considering a wall in excess of 800mm high please consult the Adbri Masonry Segmental Retaining Wall technical specification brochure, for more information on segmental retaining wall design.

    • How do I build a retaining wall?

      Retaining walls are a great DIY project and can be completed over the course of a weekend. Refer to this step by step How to Build Retaining Walls Guide for more information.

    • How do I stick caps onto my retaining wall?

      Capping units will need to be secured with a suitable construction grade epoxy or adhesive, which will result in a neat finish, whilst ensuring the cap will stay on the wall for years to come.

    • What are the benefits of segmental retaining walls?

      These systems are capable of being fully engineered and are attractive, flexible, cost-effective and easy to install.

      • Durability
      • Allows for design creativity and flexibility
      • Ease and speed of construction

    • What is a geogrid reinforced wall and when should I use it?

      A geogrid reinforced wall is a wall that is installed with geogrid reinforcement extending from between the installed wall units into a soil zone behind the wall units. The soil zone is installed at the same rate as the wall and is placed and compacted around the geogrid reinforcement to minimum specifications to ensure structural adequacy. Please note that advice from an experienced engineer should be sought to determine optimal solutions for specific soil types and wall heights.

    • What is the maximum height I can build my retaining wall to?

      The maximum un-reinforced height is different for each retaining wall product and is determined by the size and design of the block system. Please refer to your state’s retail retaining wall brochure for more specific details about or retaining wall range.
