“Cabro” is a term commonly used in East Africa to refer to concrete paving blocks or interlocking concrete pavers. Cabro installations typically refer to the process of installing these blocks to create a variety of outdoor surfaces, such as driveways, walkways, patios, parking lots, and roads.

Our process of installing cabro typically involves the following steps:

  • Site preparation: This involves clearing the site, excavating the area, and ensuring a level base for the cabro blocks.
  • Base preparation: A layer of aggregate or crushed stone is spread and compacted to create a stable and level base for the cabro blocks.
  • Edging: Concrete or plastic edging is installed around the perimeter of the area to be paved, creating a border to contain the cabro blocks.
  • Sand bedding: A layer of sand is spread and leveled over the compacted base. This layer provides a cushioning effect and helps to level the cabro blocks during installation.
  • Cabro installation: The cabro blocks are laid in the desired pattern on the sand bed, with small gaps between the blocks for jointing sand.
  • Jointing: Jointing sand is swept into the gaps between the cabro blocks to stabilize them and prevent movement.
  • Compaction: The entire paved area is compacted using a vibrating plate compactor to ensure the cabro blocks are tightly interlocked and stable.

Cabro installations can be a great way to add aesthetic appeal and value to your property, and are known for their durability and low maintenance requirements. It’s important to hire a professional contractor with experience in cabro installations to ensure that the job is done correctly and to avoid issues such as settling or shifting of the blocks over time.
