I am getting ready to install pavers around my property and I have talked to some people - no one can agree on whether I should thin set the pavers to the cement walkway that is already present or if I should use mud.

What is the rule on this - what should I do????

Just as an FYI - the pavers are 1 inch thick and I live in South Florida and the cement walkways were sealed and coated about 1 to 2 years ago.

Thanks in advance for your advice,

I would use a good quality 100% solids epoxy mixed with fine, dried blasting sand. Mix the sand and epoxy together to make a grout. It is expensive, but it will last much longer than other products. Email me with any questions, kingvolcano@aol.com

By mud do you mean concrete?

Thin set just to fill the uneveness on the bottom of the stones if it's over an specially made, already placed concrete walk. Like this project we did (link below)then place the stones in the adhesive (thin set), it holds better than concrete:

the bottom right one... and using an epoxy in the sand mix is the best way to fill the top voids on top between the stones as "the King" mentioned, vibrated in.

Email him, as it is a process that needs to be done correctly.
