Project: Porcelain Pavers Balcony Makeover

Residential Project: Tualatin Private Home

Location: Portland, Oregon

Expert Dealer Services

HDG works closely with our clients to provide accurate project take-offs, competitive pricing, and technical support. When you have a pedestal project all we need are a dimensioned plan along with the elevations of the finished paver heights measured from the subgrade below. From that we will figure out the grid-pattern and takeoff quantities and pricing. With the job, we produce a color-coded CAD drawing showing location and height of each pedestal.

Balcony Makeover Project Overview

This porcelain pavers balcony makeover project was challenged with improving the design aesthetic of the balcony while reducing the maintenance burden. By using porcelain pavers both objectives were achieved.

The HDG Pietra Kaia Blue porcelain paver with a cleft finish and high color, V4, variation perfectly matched the bluestone used in the home’s approach. Porcelain pavers offer many technical advantages over natural stone or other decking materials while having low maintenance requirements.

Rule of Thumb: 10% Overage

When determining paver quantity for a decking project a prudent purchase includes 10% overage. This is usually sufficient for cutting waste, breakage, and attic stock. Having attic stock can help you avoid loss of use, lost revenue for commercial spaces, and flawed aesthetics in the event a material is no longer in production at the time a future repair is needed. Experience Counts. Talk to HDG.

Proof of Concept Mockup

The porcelain pavers selected for this project were backordered. To get a jump start on a project while awaiting materials, a proof of concept mockup was created.

Whether working with large stone installations or installing raised decks over Buzon pedestals fabricating a mockup can be beneficial to:

  • Prove out the design concept
  • Visualize design in context of surroundings
  • Validate dimensions
  • Become familiar with materials, e.g. pedestals, pavers, slope correctors, spacer tabs, etc.
  • Understand material color variation
