The manufacturing process of concrete pavers has always been straightforward and simple and makes them more affordable than poured concrete or asphalt surfaces. Concrete pool paving is even more affordable than other materials like clay stone or granite. Most importantly when you install them in your swimming pool they last for a very long time. Pool pavers are manufactured in a specially designed mould which packs the cement and sand tighter than you can get with poured or stamped concrete. Therefore pavers always become a sturdier and stronger choice than asphalt poured concrete and other surfaces.
Initially used for road construction in the early century Roman culture the use of pavers have grown in scale and has occupied the areas of home improvement and commercial development. Design-wise flooring pavers are geometrically molded blocks or slabs of paving materials used to cover surface areas. This type of flooring material is popular for its puzzle-like appearance which consists of interlocking pavers arranged in different aesthetic formations providing functionality while also being pleasing to the eye. Homeowners generally use paving stones in the patio garden or driveway. For commercial use interlocking pavers are commonly seen in sidewalks public parks or commercial grounds. Because of its wide-scale use different paving stone types were developed to suit the needs of each market:
Brick Pavers: traditional brick products used for paving surfaces are the red clay and rectangular-shaped slabs which are compacted through a high temperature kiln. Aside from the distinct red shade brick pavers are popular for their sturdiness and durability. Brick pavers are also known for their flexibility in pattern and style. Pink gray or brown bricks are also used in mainstream home improvement projects and are arranged in different ways such as basket weave running bond stacked design or the diagonal herringbone style.
Outdoor patios have come a long way since the days of a wooden picnic bench gracing 24 x 24 concrete patio tiles with a charcoal BBQ in the corner. Todays decks and patios come complete with sofas end tables overstuffed chairs and ottomans. The old patio tiles are replaced with slate and huge elaborate gas grills complete the ensemble. With nothing but a sliding glass door separating a homes interior from the patio there is very little distinction between the two. Its time to throw out the old plastic chairs and make way for the plush double chaises with overstuffed cushions and coffee tables. You can buy any entire suite of aluminum furniture that looks like mahogany along with water resistant cushions.
