      Parking lot

    • D.

      Roadway

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Heritage pavers are primarily used for patio walkways. This means that these pavers are commonly used to create pathways in outdoor spaces such as gardens, backyards, or outdoor patios. They are designed to withstand foot traffic and provide a durable and aesthetically pleasing surface for people to walk on. These pavers are not typically used for roof-top pedestals, parking lots, or roadways, as these applications require different types of materials and specifications.

    Correct Answer
    A. 4-6"
    Explanation
    The recommended minimum base thickness for pavers in walkway applications is 4-6 inches. This thickness provides adequate stability and support for the pavers, ensuring that they can withstand foot traffic and other loads without shifting or sinking. A thicker base may be necessary for heavier applications or in areas with poor soil conditions, but for most walkway projects, a base thickness of 4-6 inches is sufficient.

    Correct Answer
    A. 6-8"
    Explanation
    The recommended overdig for paver base preparation is 6-8 inches. This depth allows for proper compaction of the base material and provides a stable foundation for the pavers. A deeper overdig of 10-12 inches may be necessary in areas with poor soil conditions or heavy traffic, but for most applications, 6-8 inches is sufficient.

    Cobblestone is a type of paving material commonly used in streets and walkways. It is characterized by its irregular and rough surface, which is similar to the texture of a stop sign. The shape of a stop sign is octagonal, but in terms of texture and appearance, cobblestone closely resembles a stop sign. Therefore, the correct answer is a stop sign.

This means that the recommended thickness of the bedding sand layer should be 1 inch, and the type of sand used should meet the specifications outlined in ASTM C33. This ensures that the sand provides the necessary support and stability for the pavers, promoting proper installation and long-term durability.

  • 16. 

    Efflorescence is a normal occurrence with concrete products and will dissipate over time?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Efflorescence is a common phenomenon in concrete products where white or grayish salt deposits appear on the surface. These deposits are caused by the migration of water-soluble salts to the surface of the concrete as it dries. Over time, as the concrete continues to cure and weather, these salts will gradually dissolve and be washed away, causing the efflorescence to dissipate. Therefore, it is true that efflorescence is a normal occurrence with concrete products and will eventually go away on its own.

  • 17. 

    For best results, pavers should be installed from one bundle at a time and not pulled from different pallets?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Installing pavers from one bundle at a time ensures consistency in color, texture, and size, resulting in a more uniform and visually appealing finished product. If pavers are pulled from different pallets, there may be variations in these characteristics, leading to an uneven and less aesthetically pleasing installation. Therefore, it is important to install pavers from one bundle at a time to achieve the best results.
