Protection - Cleaning pavers followed by sealing pavers you are essentially putting a shield that protects it from being damaged due to various external factors such as reaction with acid and fungal infestations. You dust proof your pavement by creating a film on it. It helps repel water damage and repel stains caused by oil grease and grime. Sealing pavers renews the surface color and provides a protective barrier from the sun and its damaging effects of the ultra-violet rays and provides protection from efflorescence. Paver sealing prevents the absorption of stains as well as deter the growth of algae mold mildew and weeds and insect activity making ongoing maintenance of a properly sealed paver surface much easier and far more effective.
We frequently install thin pavers on top of base material when the project calls for it. For instance if we are remodeling an existing pool deck and the client wants to expand the deck area we will simply excavate the addition compact four inches of base material and install the thin pavers on top so that they are flush with the thin pavers we just installed over top of the existing pool deck. The reason we choose to use a thin paver in this example is to maintain color shade and variation consistency throughout the entire project. Thick and thin pavers never match exactly because they are manufactured at different times using different aggregates. The variation in color dye blending and moisture content of the sand and aggregates during the manufacturing process is what gives each batch of pavers its own distinct look.
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.
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. Stone pavers on the other hand are natural so it limits the options to more traditional shapes. The summer and warmer months of the year means spending more time outdoors in our backyards and around the pool.
