Concrete Pavers: this type is more or less a variation of brick pavers; instead of clay the components of the mixture include water concrete or cement sand and other types of solid aggregates which are then molded under a high temperature kiln. Concrete pavers are commonly rectangular in shape and are arranged in the floor surface with gaps/joints of grout grass gravel or sand. Flooring pavers of this type are popular for their simple minimalist yet tidy appearance. Stone Pavers: boast of the natural look that they can bring in any spot. Paving components used for this type include granite limestone or flagstone which are polished and molded to suit the pattern desired.
Once the coping has been installed and is secure we actually install the paver field. The first thing we do before we lay the paver field is to prepare the existing surface. We replace any and all drains so that we no longer have mold and mildew growth. Next we spread a small 1/8 to ¼ inch bed of sand on top of the deck. If there are low areas where water collects during hard rains then we will float these areas and raise their elevations with this bedding sand. In addition to changing the pitch of the deck the sand serves as a smooth surface to which the paver field will be installed upon. The interlocking pattern chosen by the homeowner will be dictated by the shapes the homeowner chooses.
The final step which ensures a tight secure field is to wash joint sand over the newly installed pavers. This sand will fill any and all voids between each and every paver. Its only purpose is to ensure that none of the pavers move. Frequently homeowners are concerned by the presence of sand on their deck. We remind them however that you need not see this join sand. Thin pavers are at least an inch in thickness and the smallest amount say 1/4 of inch of joint sand between the bricks for this type of application will keep all of the pavers in place and secure for years to come.
Initially used for road construction in the early century Roman culture the use of pavers have grown in scale and has occupied the areas of home improvement and commercial development. Design-wise flooring pavers are geometrically molded blocks or slabs of paving materials used to cover surface areas. This type of flooring material is popular for its puzzle-like appearance which consists of interlocking pavers arranged in different aesthetic formations providing functionality while also being pleasing to the eye. Homeowners generally use paving stones in the patio garden or driveway. For commercial use interlocking pavers are commonly seen in sidewalks public parks or commercial grounds. Because of its wide-scale use different paving stone types were developed to suit the needs of each market:
