Raised Paving Slabs

Ideal for rooftop patios, balconies, and major installations, the hydra pressed paving slabs shown below are installed on pedestals, to allow easy drainage between tiles..

Each two-foot by two-foot slab weighs approximately 100 pounds.

Pavers are also versatile. The variety of colours and shapes available allows Stonescape Contracting Ltd. to install pavers to match any style of decor.

Colorful patio pavers create a playful atmosphere.

Stonescape even "paints" with pavers, as illustrated in the following examples. Note the compass embedded in the driveway below. Stonescape also inset hockey sticks
in the pavers in front of the
Nanaimo Ice Centre.

Many of Stonescape's paving projects utilize high-quality pavers from:

Abbotsford Concrete



Beautifully fitted pavers can form patios, walkways, driveways, or terraces.

Thirty times stronger than poured concrete, paving stones are both strong and versatile, with an almost unlimited range of colours, textures, shapes and styles available. Paving stones are used to create roadways and driveways, walkways, sidewalks, patios, pool decks and public squares. Since paving stones are laid on a prepared bed of gravel and sand, they have more flexibility than concrete. They will not crack and if they do need to be moved to access underground services, they can be lifted and replaced.

Stonescape Contracting is an ICPI certified installer. The company's work has been featured in architectural magazines, including its installation of one of the first aqua pave driveways in North America. Aqua pave is a new type of paving stone designed as an environmentally friendly option for parking areas and driveways. Accepted for LEED accreditation, the stone is an integrated filtering system. Instead of running off to contaminate the surrounding soil, surface oil and water is drawn into the paving stone, where a layer of microbes breaks up and consumes the oil.

A similar environmentally friendly paving system will be installed by Stonescape for the Oliver Road Recreation Centre.

Paving installations completed by Stonescape Contracting in the past few years include:

  • Installation of paving stone for the Mayfield at Longwood 230-unit residential development by Insight Group Development Corporation.
  • Installation of the large paving stone walkway and outdoor patio in front of the Nanaimo Ice Centre. Stonescape inserted a hockey stick design into the walkway.
  • Installation of the paving stone streets for The Bluffs development in Eagle Crest, Qualicum Beach.
