When you choose an interior floor covering you have many different material choices. The same holds true for choosing pool or outdoor area pavers. Pool patios and decks and sidewalks use pavers made of concrete stone or brick. These are the three most common types of materials for pavers. The paver material you choose can affect the design you can create. Since concrete and brick pavers are manmade you can find these pavers in different shapes and sizes.

It is advised to lay pavers in the sun. If your pavers dont get enough sunlight there would be a chance of them getting infested with moss. This not only degrades the appearance of the pavers but also decreases their durability. Sealing pavers can prevents algae growth. Another problem often springs up due to the salt present in most of the pavers; efflorescence. This is a white chalky residue that forms on the surface of the pavers in contact with water or on its own. This can be cleaned using concentrated cleaners. Sealing pavers minimizes formation of the residue. Pavers being regularly tread on must be cleaned and polished to keep them intact for a long time.
