Pavers Cutting Equipment

Start with the Right Equipment

AZEK Pavers® can be cut with readily available cutting equipment. Unlike concrete, complex and expensive diamond blade masonry saws are not needed.

Jigsaw

The most versatile saw for cutting composite pavers.

  • Use for complex cuts such as curves and holes
  • Cut several installed pavers at the same time
  • Use to finish off incomplete mitre saw cuts (e.g. cutting a larger grid with a 10″ mitre saw)

Recommended Blade

  • Wood cutting blade (5- to 6-tooth per inch)
  • Example: Bosch T101D and T144D

10–Inch Mitre Saw

This saw can be used for almost any cut.

  • Cut pavers in half or any angle (larger pavers might require two cuts)
  • Cut grids (requires two cuts, larger grids requires finishing with jigsaw)

Recommended Blade

  • 10–inch 24–tooth carbide tipped wood ripping blade (Teflon or other coating recommended)
  • Example: Freud D1024X Diablo 10″ 24-tooth ATB Ripping Saw Blade with 5/8″ Arbor and Permashield Coating
  • Clean any melted debris from the blade using brake cleaner or other solvent cleaner

12–Inch Mitre Saw

A less common saw but great at minimizing the number of cuts on larger pavers and grids.

  • Cuts larger pavers (e.g. 4″x8″) lengthwise in one cut
  • Cuts larger grids (e.g. 16″x16″) in two cuts without needing to finish with a jigsaw

Recommended Blade

  • 12–inch 20– to 30–tooth carbide tipped wood ripping blade (10 to 20 degree positive rake angle, Teflon or other coating recommended)
  • Example: Freud 12″ Red Teflon Rip Blade (LM72R012)
  • Example: Freud 12″ Thick Stock Rip (LM71M012)
  • Clean any melted debris from the blade using brake cleaner or other solvent cleaner
