Look at the transition. If you are paving an area of your home that links together the inside and the outside it is important that you choose a paver that will complement both these areas. You need to look at the texture feel and colour of each stone and compare it to the flooring inside your home. Think about maintenance. Different types of pavers will require different levels of maintenance and care. If you want a low maintenance option you would not choose a stone that requires resealing once a year and cleaning every weekend would you? Think about safety. Keep in mind that some pavers will be very slippery when wet but that this can often be counteracted with a special non-slip coating. If you fear that one particular stone may be a trip or slip hazard perhaps opt for another kind.
Clay brick pavers are made of natural clay that is fired and manufactured at extremely high temperatures. This process makes the bricks strong and ensures that the ingredients are bonded together. Brick pavers are proven to be effective and are considered to be one of the most durable type of paver material. It has been used for thousand of years and continues to be a popular choice. These pavers do not use any dye or pigments. Clay is a natural material it maintains its natural color and will never fade through time. It is available in different shapes and sizes that will suit any type of application.
Each year we make one major improvement to our home which will enhance its beauty or improve on maintenance time from us. We always look for things that will increase the re-sale value of our home when that time comes. Balanced with this are eco-friendly considerations for our neighborhood and city. Our driveway is the current project. We have already ruled out asphalt and poured concrete. Both have the potential to crack and give a negative eye-appeal and possible hazard for tripping. They are not the best eco-friendly structures. Solid surfaces let the rain water run down carrying leaves and other debris into the street and sewers.
Whats more the range of colours available makes it easy to customise and personalise your own landscaping turning boring pathways into features instead. Outdoor pavers suitable for use on driveways are usually a little thicker than those used for other purposes. These usually come in a thickness of 50mm which also makes them ideal for other commercial use. This is to help your driveway withstand the weight of cars or frequent foot traffic. Driveway pavers are often set to smaller dimensions of 300x300 or 400x400 as larger bricks than this may be more likely to crack under constant weight of cars. Keeping brick sizes smaller allows for more even distribution of weight across the area.
