Handling Porcelain Paver Deck and Patio Edges
Most porcelain paver installation guides focus on edging a deck or patio using techniques suitable for on-grade installations. These solutions include chipped stone and other materials, crushed rock, and grass, and other plantings to create a biophilic outdoor design. In some cases, landscape designers will incorporate a raised border using planters, stone, concrete, or wood.
Creating a Finished Edge in Raised Installations
Not every installation of outdoor porcelain pavers is installed over grass, stone, concrete, or gravel. When the porcelain pavers are installed over raised pedestals it creates a cavity underneath and an edge at the periphery. To create a finished and professional look the edge will need to be covered. Using the same porcelain pavers from the decking surface will provide the best design aesthetic. The PB-End Finishing Kit is designed to do just that.
Buzon PB-End Finishing Kit
The PB-End can be used to create a lateral edge or full corner to completely cover the pedestal cavity. Each PB-End is comprised of 3 parts: the U-End-Base, U-End-Lock, and the PB-End-Top. Now you can create or add a finished skirt at the perimeter of raised terraces in case you don’t have an adjoining parapet on your structure or other borders to hide the pedestal / decking / joist edges.
