    We use...

    expanded poly styrene foam, blue, pink or green board. It is rated for 25lbs per sq. in. That works out to 3,600 lbs per square foot which is generally better than most compacted soils. More importantly, will the brick setter guarantee his work on insulation? I know mine won't. I don't think MD's would either.

    That IS one of the problems with using insulation below brick pavers.

    We used it on a commercial loading dock and the sturctural engineer had no problems with it, and there are 40 and 50 foot tractor trailer rigs going in and out all day long. Inspected the slab last week and saw nary a crack.
