Our installation tips

How to use Patio Drummond’s Foundation Block

We recommend seeking assistance from another person for the installation of the foundation block. Since it weighs over 120 lb, it is advisable to work together to lift and position the block properly. We also recommend using a soil compactor to prepare the installation surface thoroughly. It’s what makes all the difference to the durability and safety of your landscaping.

Frequently asked questions

What is Hydrapel?

Our drycast products have undergone their greatest improvement to date with what is known as Hydrapel. Designed at the factory for increased quality and grading, the products are manufactured with an additive that makes them permeable and therefore more durable. Added directly to the mix of our drycast products, Hydrapel reduces the absorption rate and increases the resistance to freezing and thawing as well as to bad weather. Hydrapel protects against stains and reinforces the resistance to UV rays for a brilliant color that will last forever!

Does Patio Drummond offer a warranty on its landscaping products?

Patio Drummond offers a replacement warranty for manufacturing defects on our products, valid for one (1) year following the date of purchase. Installation costs are at the consumer’s expense.

My products are damaged, what should I do?

For landscaping products purchased at hardware stores, please contact the retailer from whom you purchased your products directly. The retailer will then contact us to open a claim file – if applicable.

Can I use de-icing salt on your products?

No. It is to be PROHIBITED! Patio Drummond prohibits the use of de-icing salt to prevent the surface of concrete slabs, pavers, balconies and stoops from flaking or crumbling. Patio Drummond declines all responsibility for damages caused by the use of de-icing salt on its products. De-icing salts are often sold without any warning about their harmful effects on concrete slabs, pavers and balconies. Even when a package mentions “safe for concrete”, it is important to pay close attention to the warnings and conditions of application, as they are often very unrealistic. The APCHQ strongly recommends the use of sand or fine gravel. Given the manufacturers’ restrictions on the use of de-icing salts, it is much simpler to refrain from sprinkling them on your concrete balconies, in order to prevent their surface from flaking or crumbling. Sand and gravel do require more maintenance, but these two products are certainly a guarantee of durability for the concrete of your slabs, pavers and balconies.
