Your job does not end with sealing pavers. You have to clean pavers regularly because damp weather makes pavers absorb moisture from the environment along with dust and can spoil the show of your pavement. So clean them and mop them regularly. Avoid using any highly concentrated chemicals that damage the environment. Always look for natural formulae for cleaning. You can use a high pressure cleaner and spray the pavers with salt water. For cleaning stains that are lighter a solution of detergent and warm water would be advisable. However stains of petrol or oil will not dissolve in water or soap. You can use a commercial product available in the market under the guidance of a professional. Another way of cleaning oil or petrol stains is the use of kitty litter on pavers on the previous night and sweep off the next day.
Choosing and selecting the type of pavers to use for a project can be quite daunting especially if there are many different types of outdoor pavers available in the market today. The first thing you have to think of is the type of material needed for a project. There are clay brick pavers stone pavers concrete pavers rubber pavers and grass pavers. These are the common types used for commercial and residential landscaping projects. The color the shape the pattern or design as well as the pavers to be used on the needed application are the details that you have to consider as well. It is always best to look around and check the features of the property to make the decision-making easier. The best way to start the project is to match the existing materials. If you are having trouble deciding you can get advice from a contractor or a landscape designer.
Travertine Pavers: This type of paver resides to a larger family of stone called limestone or also called calcium carbonate. Marble is also a form of limestone that has had additional heat and pressure applied to it by the earths crust. Travertine is created by minerals liquefy in ground water and then being deposited on the earths surface by natural springs rivers or geysers. Travertine pavers can be purchased in many different colors including beige ivory walnut noce and gold. Iron compounds or other types of impurities of an organic nature are what give the travertine its color. If aesthetics are the main goal for the homeowner then one must really look at going with travertine pavers.
A common question that we encounter is whether you can use a thin paver on top of base material. The answer is not absolute. In reality it depends on the circumstances of the project and the proficiency of the crew or individual installing the pavers in the first place. The one aspect of the project that must remain constant if considering the use of thin pavers over base is that the area to be paved must only be used as a pedestrian area that wont endure the weight of vehicular traffic. Using a thin paver on compacted base is typically frowned upon within the paver industry. They are normally used to remodel an existing concrete tile or acrylic surface.
