A Patio Idea of Beauty
If it’s time to upgrade and if beauty and aesthetics are on the agenda then the time is right for patio pavers. Concrete pavers offer a tremendous array of advantages over other types of patio decks and areas.
Using interlocking concrete pavers for your patio design provides unlimited possibilities in design concepts. You can choose amongst many different and beautiful colors. You have your choices of types of pavers. Different pavers have different shapes, textures, surfaces, colors and provide any number of different design ideas, from very modern to evoking the look of ancient Roman streets or the quaint and exquisite beauty of Europe hundreds of years ago.
Paving Stone Advantages
Besides the beauty and aesthetics that patio pavers offer, there is the factor of performance, durability and longevity and the fact that they are almost maintenance free.
One of the great advantages of patio pavers is that each paving stone is surrounded by a bed of special grade sand. This provides a very strong platform, and additionally provides just enough flexibility that seasonal temperature changes and the subsequent expansion and contraction of the paving stones does not cause cracks in the pavers or the design.
Poured or Stamped Concrete
It is said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder but few will argue that poured concrete will be as pleasing as the colors, patterns and design of patio pavers.
Stamped and poured concrete have the disadvantage that it creates a very hard inflexible surface that is subject to cracking from temperature variances and physical stress. Patching a crack in concrete always leaves a scar so beauty can be short-lived.
Wooden Patio Decks
Wooden patio decks require yearly maintenance and can be a problem to retain their beauty. And they do not have the longevity of paving stones.
Patio pavers in any of their various designs and color patterns,is today’s choice to beautify any property and greatly add to its value.
