For decades, everyone has applied edging to their pavers using one of four tried-and-true methods: plastic edge restraint, concrete curbing, bond beam, and step edging. In the last few years, Chris Yancey, a professional hardscape contractor, developed a fresh paver edging product called Perma-Edge Paver Edging. In this article, we’ll show you how to use […]
Are you installing steps or a retaining wall? If so, you know that once you’ve selected your main paver style, you need to choose another style to cap it off. The downside of most paver caps is that most wall caps come in a rectangular shape. This means you either have to go through the process of a miter cut to get them properly angled, or just use them on a corner.
We created Versa-Cap to be the solution for this situation. Our Versa-Cap stone is truly the most versatile paver cap on the market.
Information- Why Versa-Cap?
So, why Versa-Cap? What are the advantages of implementing this stone in your paver project?
Angled corners instead of straight
One of the main disadvantages of many capstones is that all the corners are straight, forcing you to either use them on a corner or implement the hassle of a saw to angle the corners properly. Not good with a miter saw? Versa-Cap stones take care of that problem—they already have angled corners. They can also be flipped to create cap patterns or to make straight surfaces.
Works with wall block up to 12” deep
The second big advantage of Versa-Cap is that it can work well with most wall blocks. The Versa-Cap can be implemented with wall blocks that are up to 12” deep, which is well within the range for most standard walls.
Where do I use Classic Versa-Cap?
Versa-Cap can be used to top off a variety of pavers, from paver steps to retaining walls.
Cap off steps
If you are looking to cap your patio steps, Versa-Cap might be the perfect fit. It goes well with our Gradino Step Blocks, as well as the sleek Chateau Moderna. You can choose from four different colors to ensure the caps compliment the pavers you select.
Accent your retaining wall
If you are building a retaining wall, Versa-Cap may also work well for you. You can easily pair Versa-Cap with our Jumbo Nursery wall blocks or Murata wall blocks to end up with an attractive complement to your basic retaining wall.
