Concrete Pavers: This type of paver over the years has been the paver of choice. Why you may ask? Well just about everyone from the homeowner to the professional contractor finds their many benefits to be a plus. What is the main attraction? The durability that they provide is at the top of the list. A great place to utilize these is the driveway due to the fact that they can handle a lot of weight. What else provides the attraction? They stand up great in different weather. They dont crack due to they expand and contract. Here is another great benefit. They are easy to repair. If one needs to be fixed all that needs to be done is to put it in the area of need. Also they are great for around the swimming pool due to the fact that they are skid resistant. This comes in very helpful when walking around barefoot by the pool. Finally taking care of them is pretty easy. Pressing washing intermittently will keep them clean and give you that great look for years to come.
If your pavers are beginning to show some signs of fading or stains you can hire a Michigan paver company to clean strip and re-seal your driveway. This can bring back the original beauty of the paver driveway. Because of the wear and tear of having vehicles driving over the pavers you may have to have your pavers redone every 2 to 3 years to ensure the best performance. With proper maintenance there is no reason why your paver driveway cannot stay looking almost as good as new. Brick paver sealing is also a good idea for paved patios. You invest in a brick paver driveway and patio to improve the value of your property why would you refuse to use basic maintenance like sealing your pavers? Often people buy homes that have already been upgraded with a paver patio or driveway but do not realize just how much brick sealing could improve the look of the landscaping that is there. When pavers are allowed to fade out from the sun and dirt that build up it is hard to see the true beauty of what is there. Paver sealing in Michigan is even more important because of the salt used on the roads during the winter. Salt can stain the pavers and dull the colors. Power washing can help to some degree but sealing the pavers can make them look as good dry as they do wet. Invest in the maintenance needed to protect your property value. Sealing driveway pavers is an easy option for keeping your driveway as good as new.
Travertine Pavers: This type of paver resides to a larger family of stone called limestone or also called calcium carbonate. Marble is also a form of limestone that has had additional heat and pressure applied to it by the earths crust. Travertine is created by minerals liquefy in ground water and then being deposited on the earths surface by natural springs rivers or geysers. Travertine pavers can be purchased in many different colors including beige ivory walnut noce and gold. Iron compounds or other types of impurities of an organic nature are what give the travertine its color. If aesthetics are the main goal for the homeowner then one must really look at going with travertine pavers.
Pavers come with a natural sealant or you can add a sealant to keep the pavers from being slippery. Since the pavers surround the pool water can make the pavers wet but the sealant keeps it from being a safety hazard. While the focus here is pool pavers pavers actually have various uses. Beyond creating a pool patio or deck pavers are also the material for creating driveways and walkways. A paver is a design material that provides these outdoor areas a finished look. Whether its in the front yard backyard or on the side of your home you can use pavers to create these different areas outside of your home.
