It is advised to lay pavers in the sun. If your pavers dont get enough sunlight there would be a chance of them getting infested with moss. This not only degrades the appearance of the pavers but also decreases their durability. Sealing pavers can prevents algae growth. Another problem often springs up due to the salt present in most of the pavers; efflorescence. This is a white chalky residue that forms on the surface of the pavers in contact with water or on its own. This can be cleaned using concentrated cleaners. Sealing pavers minimizes formation of the residue. Pavers being regularly tread on must be cleaned and polished to keep them intact for a long time.
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.
Pool pavers are a popular material for creating decks and patios around the pool. The three primary materials that pavers come in are stone cement and brick. Stone pavers are a natural material so these pavers traditionally come in a rectangle shape. Since brick and cement pavers are manmade you can find pavers in different shapes that allow you to create the design or look you want. Square and rectangular pavers are the best choice for pool pavers because these pavers have smooth edges and textured surfaces. The shape of the paver affects the pattern you can create. A paver shaped like a zigzag for example can create an interlocking pattern. Square pavers on the other hand create a side-by-side pattern. Traditionally pool patterns include square and rectangular pavers to sit side-by-side but you can also turn the square and rectangular pavers at an angle to create a diamond pattern.
A solution of bleach powder and water in a proportion of 1:10 can also be used for cleaning pavers. Apply the solution over the pavers with a brush and then scrub. Remember that bleach can cause discoloration. Therefore try it on one of the pavers in a corner and see the result before you start cleaning. For removing paint from pavers paint thinner can be applied on the pavers and then scrape it out with a rag carefully. The most difficult job is to remove rust stains from pavers. When the normal methods do not work use an appropriate chemical with the help of a professional. After cleaning pavers allow it to dry.
