Interlocking bricks are often used to create beautiful paved surfaces, strong enough to support most residential vehicle traffic while offering a patterned look that stands out from the dull gray of traditional concrete. Over time, pavers can become uneven, usually as the result of a shift in the soil beneath the bricks. Repair is fairly simple, but time-consuming, requiring the removal of the offending bricks and the resetting of the sand base the bricks rest upon. After the repair is completed however, you’ll have your drive back, a smooth and even expanse of brick pavers just like the day it first was laid.
Wedge a thin pry bar into the joint between two pavers until you reach the paver bottom. Lever the paver up from its placement until you can grasp it with your hand and lift it free. Continue until you remove all the pavers from the affected area of the drive. If the problem is widespread, remove the entire paved surface, paying attention to the pattern used in paver placement.
