Unlike asphalt pavers are virtually maintenance-free and do not need to be regularly sealed or replaced. By definition concrete pavers have a minimum compressive strength of 8000 psi (about 3 times stronger than regular poured concrete) and a maximum water absorption rate of 5%. Concrete pavers are extremely dense units which possess exceptional strength and durability superior stability under severe loads and are unaffected by the extremes of heat and frost. Each unit has joints that allow for a small amount of movement without cracking. Factory made pavers last for decades.
The cost will be a factor effecting your decision while choosing the material for the pavers. The concrete pavers are the cheapest ones whereas the brick patio and the stone patio cost more. The brick pavers cost the most. So if you are low on budget then go for concrete patio instead of brick patio. Once you have installed the pavers of your choice the next task is to keep an eye on its maintenance. The maintenance depends on the material that you are using for the patios. Some materials need more attention while the others need low or no attention at all. This is simply due to the fact that some pavers will hold on to their color for longer while other will not. Also the pavers which are easy to clean will require low maintenance than the pavers needing more time for cleaning.
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 that are sealed neither require high maintenance nor are they damaged easily. You do not have to pay for pressure cleaning and disinfection frequently. Pavers remain stronger and well preserved for longer durations. Further sealers are flexible and versatile in their usage and the same sealer can be used for different kinds of surfaces such as cement or stone. Pavers are the red carpet into your home or office. They make the first impression on visitors. Therefore they need to be well maintained and kept clean. Sealing pavers is a great way to save time effort and money. However make sure that you use a good quality sealer or hire an efficient sealing contractor so that you can make the most of your investment.
