Paver Patios & Hardscaping
Why are paver patios growing in popularity?
There are many good reasons as to why paver patios are becoming a popular building material for constructing outdoor patios and entertainment decks.
Advantages of installing a paver patio over concrete:
Concrete paving has been traditionally used as one of the more common paving materials due to its low cost initially. However, in reality, a concrete slab will eventually crack and will need to be replaced. This leads to a higher cost in the long run. Paver patios will not crack like concrete paving. Paver manufacturers produce pavers colored with a variety of oxides which reduce fading and keep the surface looking new; and, they meet American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards of at least 8,000 psi. This is approximately 3-4 times stronger than concrete and approximately 10 times the strength of asphalt.
Paver patios have become a popular alternative to having vast areas of grass lawns. Stone pavers are fast becoming the architect’s choice for commercial and residential projects. Because of their low maintenance appeal with minimal upkeep, they are the perfect solution. The popularity of paver patios is expanding rapidly in the United States. Experts in the business say the market is experiencing extremely rapid growth and is poised to continue growing as the benefits of stone pavers become more well known.
The Versatility of paver patios:
Due to the availability of various shapes, colors, and sizes of patio pavers, they have become one of the most versatile paving materials available today. Additionally, the combination of slip resistance and attractive finishes has aided their popularity to what they are today.
In choosing the floor material for a paver patio, one must be careful to properly consider the safety, comfort, style and design issues of the patio surface. Paver patios address all these factors because they have a non-slip surface, they are comfortable to walk on, and they have a classical appearance and can be designed in a variety of patterns, shapes and colors.
Paver patios are ideal to use in your outdoor areas:
Installing interlocking stone pavers in your outdoor living area will add charm, curb appeal and increase the value of your home. The benefits of interlocking paving stones include the vast selection of design options, durability, ease of repair, resistant to cracking, and environmental friendliness.
