Welcome to Tropical Patios
|Can you picture a brick patio in your yard? Are you ready for vibrant colors and exciting pattern combinations? Do you need more space for entertaining?|
Tropical Patios designs and installs brick paver patios, sidewalks, driveways and pool decks. When you call Tropical Patios, the owner, Jonathan Kidd, will meet with you to discuss the scope of your project. We will then design a plan and provide an estimate for your home or business. We can also install pavers from your plans.
Concrete brick pavers are manufactured for use on the ground. They are available in a wide range of colors and shapes from manufacturers in Texas. Typically, brick pavers are not set on a concrete foundation. Installation begins with a compacted sand base. After the sand is leveled, the brick pavers are placed in your selected pattern. Then, our craftsmen cut and trim the patio, giving careful attention to detail. A hidden concrete edge restraint holds the patio together. Finally, sand is vibrated between the brick with a plate compactor, locking the pavers together.
Using brick pavers has many advantages. Any outdoor area can be enhanced with the color, pattern and texture of brick pavers. Properly installed pavers will not shift or sink under heavy traffic making them ideal for driveways. A brick patio makes an excellent pool deck because of its non-slip surface. Individual pavers are easily removed and replaced to access underground utilities and plumbing. Brick pavers are installed on a flexible base so they will not crack as the ground shifts during drought or floods. Brick pavers are ecologically sound. They allow water and air to penetrate the ground. Also, they are reusable, avoiding waste.
Tropical Patios has been installing brick pavers since 1982. We work throughout the Rio Grande Valley and Corpus Christi. Our projects have ranged from interlocking circles in an atrium to subdivision streets on South Padre Island. Paver projects were Jonathan Kidd's hobby as a child. He has always enjoyed designing and installing patios for people's homes. Our craftsmen have worked with us for many years. All of our work is supervised. The quality of our work and your satisfaction are very important to us. All of our work is guaranteed for two years. If your project has special difficulties, rely on our experience for creative solutions.
