Cement Pavers

Cement pavers are made by pouring concrete into a mold. They can vary in thickness from about 1″ to 3″ and typically resemble brick or natural stone.

Surface Preparation: Exterior concrete substrates that are not even should be corrected using a quality exterior-concrete repair product.

Setting: MAPEI recommends MAPEI’s Ultraflex LHT SG mixed with MAPEI’s Keraply for setting the pavers over exterior concrete.

Grouting: Because cement pavers are commonly at least 1″ thick, special considerations should be made when grouting. MAPEI’s Ultracolor Plus FA grout is recommended for grouting cement pavers. As an alternative method, grout joints can be partially filled with one of the setting mortars above, leaving 1/4″ depth of the joint open for grouting. After 24 hours, pavers can be grouted using MAPEI’s Keracolor S or MAPEI Flexcolor CQ grout.
