A properly installed paver patio will likely outlast the concrete patio it replaced. The key is in the construction details. For Wisconsin climate and soil type your paver patio realty should have a minimum 10 inch compacted base made up of 3/4 crushed limestone or traffic bond as it is often called. This stone is applied over a separation fabric that isolates the subsoil from the stone.
Then a maximum of 1.5 inches of torpedo sand is screeded over the stone base forming the bed for the pavers to be installed. Once installed a polymeric sand is swept into the joints.
