As a paver installation company, Appian Construction began installing sand set pavers and bricks in 1984. Over time the industry demand for products to elevate pavers, inspired Appian Construction to begin on a pedestal system of their own. Today, Appian Way Sales Inc. is the developer and manufacturer of all AWS Pedestal products including the adjustable Diamond Head Series, Perimeter Pedestal System and the Joist Plate System. The products distributed by Appian Way Sales are used to elevate and support pavers, natural cut stone, ceramic tiles and wood tile systems. AWS Pedestals have been supporting pavers since the year 2000.

Always innovating, AWS Pedestals introduced an adjustable head system in the fall of 2014. Initial focus on the Pacific Northwest use of the AWS Pedestal Systems has now spread across the country. AWS Pedestals are no longer a regional product. The pedestal systems are now offered in all fifty states and the provinces of Canada (through a Canadian distributor).

At Appian Way Sales, Inc. Service is the key to our company success. Call the distribution office to discuss your project and get assistance determining your pedestal needs. Expect a prompt return quote including shipping costs to the destination of your choice. AWS Pedestal Systems is here to provide all your service needs.
