Brick Pavers: traditional brick products used for paving surfaces are the red clay and rectangular-shaped slabs which are compacted through a high temperature kiln. Aside from the distinct red shade brick pavers are popular for their sturdiness and durability. Brick pavers are also known for their flexibility in pattern and style. Pink gray or brown bricks are also used in mainstream home improvement projects and are arranged in different ways such as basket weave running bond stacked design or the diagonal herringbone style.
Stone pavers are a popular choice among customers who look for natural-looking elements that can be varied according to color size form and finish. Landscaping with pavers does not only leverage on the aesthetic appearance of the end product; the wide use of paving stones proves their functionality and flexibility at a value-for-money cost. Homeowners property owners and commercial developers can both balance the elements of style and function with the use of pavers or paving stones.
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:
If you adhere a product to a surface that is cracked or will most likely crack (i.e. concrete) then that product since it is adhered to the surface beneath will also crack. A thin paver field is NOT adhered to the existing deck! The interlocking system that is utilized with a thin paver installation in conjunction with the joint sand produces a surface that can float on the deck beneath all the while staying even smooth and crack-less! I mentioned that the field is not adhered in the previous paragraph however there has to be interior and exterior edge restraints to keep the field from moving. The first step to installing pavers on your pool deck is to secure the interior of the paver field with coping which are the bull nose pieces set around the perimeter of the pool itself. The coping pieces are cemented to the deck and grouted.
