Pavers and Their Many Use

This title may seem a bit strange to you – but have you really ever sat down and thought about all the ways that pavers can be used? In this blog we are going to run down a few of them – hopefully to inspire you to consider adding this beautiful material to your outdoor space.

Simply the best material for a driveway…

If you have read our blog before, then you are most likely acquainted with our fascination and love of paver driveways. Some of the key benefits of using pavers for driveways is the fact that if for some reason there is an oil spill or a bucket of paint bursts (which never happens) instead of having to jack hammer up the entire driveway, you can simply remove the paver, tap in a new one and you are good to go. And of course, with traditional concrete if you live in an area that sees vast temperature differences or seismic activity, you will be grateful for the ability to “tap” pavers into place. Pavers are held in place by a special type of sand that holds the pavers in place – similar to grout. The difference is that this “sand” allows the pavers to shift slightly is there is any type of movement. This ability to shift prevents any cracking of the pavers.

The ideal choice for pool areas…

Most of us have unfortunately experienced how slippery concrete can be when wet. This is one of the reasons that pavers are such a great choice for any area that is likely to become wet. Because of the naturally abrasive texture of pavers, they provide grit and therefore are not slippery when wet.

Excellent choice for commercial areas…

While they may not look like it, pavers are incredibly durable. They are able to take a lot of weight and thus are a great solution for high traffic commercial areas.

An array of textures, colors and sizes…

Pretty much unlike any other material, pavers come in more colors shapes and sizes than you can possibly imagine. It doesn’t matter if your house is a ranch style, feels more contemporary, adobe or anything in between – rest assured there is a paver style, texture and color that is right for you.
