Concrete Pavers: This type of paver over the years has been the paver of choice. Why you may ask?

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?

Thin pavers were created to remodel existing pool decks patios sidewalks and front entries. They are perfect for any non-vehicular application that remodels an existing concrete slab. By a technical definition thin pavers are not considered pavers. Instead they are considered to be a tile. Their thickness relative to their shape prevents them from being considered a paver. Typically thin pavers are anywhere from three quarters of inch in thickness to an inch and a quarter. Since they are about half the thickness of regular pavers they should cost less right? Unfortunately on a material only basis thin pavers cost the same as thick pavers. The reason for this is that overwhelmingly thick pavers are in much higher demand than thin pavers. Therefore it is a burden on the production company to produce their less frequently demanded thin counterparts.
Pavers can be installed in a variety of unique and interesting patterns to add flair and interesting qualities to your home garden or business. When laying pavers long straight lines should be avoided and either a basket weave pattern or a varying unique pattern should be used in straight line paver installation. This creates an ambiance that is reflective of your personality as well as the home or business personality. A qualified paver contractor should be able to interest you in all kinds of unique paver designs and show you exactly how paver installation can dramatically beautify your home or business.

Unsealed interlocking pavers are susceptible to staining chipping and growth of creepers through the cracks and edges. Although pavers require minimum maintenance regularly cleaning of the pavers and occasionally sealing them is necessary to preserve the well-tended look of your pristine patio or driveway. Sealing pavers is quite easy considering that a lot of good quality acrylic based sealants are available in the market.
