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.
Pavers can be repaired by lifting the affected area re-grading and re-compacting the base and bedding sand and reinstalling the same pavers. It is an inexpensive procedure that leaves no unsightly repair patches. Pavers are easy to maintain. Regular sweeping and occasional rinsing are usually the most maintenance needed. For heavy soiling pressure washing or a simple spot treatment with a brush cleaner water and some elbow grease will solve the problem. We recommend that you re-sand the joints between the pavers after a pressure wash.
Once sealed the paver wears a clean and glossy look. If you have used color pigment while laying the paver or a naturally colored stone then a coat on it enhances the appearance of the color. Sealers that use UV protection elements prevent fading of the paver due to exposure to sunlight. Further since sealing pavers keeps them protected from effervescence and formation of microorganisms they look well maintained and clean because of which the appearance of not only your paver but also your entire house or office is enhanced. If the estimate for sealing your paver inclines slightly to the higher side you do get discouraged. Think of it as an investment that gets you great returns.
Paving bricks at a 40mm thickness are also ideal for paving pool surrounds as theyre the same thickness as the majority of pool coping available. This helps to blend your landscaping efforts and reduce the risk of tripping or falling on uneven levels around your pool area. So many Australian homes featured verandas pergolas or under-main-roof alfresco areas as outdoor living areas these days. Choosing outdoor pavers for these areas should be relatively easy as there are plenty of styles and colours to choose from to highlight your outdoor entertaining area. The bricks used for these purposes are usually at a 40mm thickness which is ideal for an entertaining area. Once again the vast range of colours available should make it easy to customise the area to suit your tastes and preferences.
