Pavers are solid bricks that are usually made from concrete or actual clay bricks and are bound together with a sealant to create the surface of a driveway, walkway, or other outdoor space. Pavers are beautiful and can add texture and dimension to your outdoor surface, while also creating a welcoming appearance for the exterior of your home or commercial property. We highly recommend pavers if you want something sturdy, unique, and beautiful.
Concrete pavers are made from solid concrete and are installed piece by piece into a framed area before being sealed in place. Concrete pavers can also be stained to achieve a darker color so that the pavers themselves match any other exterior surface you might have. You can invest in concrete pavers to complement your landscape or to simply enhance your walkway, pathway, patio, porch, and more. Pavers are very versatile and can be used to build mailboxes, flower boxes, and even stairs throughout your landscape and leading up to your property.
Brick pavers are a popular option if you're considering any type of paver. This is because brick is an incredibly durable and strong material that is also heat-resistant and can combat most outdoor weather elements. It comes in various natural earth shades of red and brown is a fantastic complement to any exterior space. The brick is installed with mortar to seal it in place and is also sealed over on top to avoid cracks or other damages. We highly recommend brick if you have brick exterior or other brick features as well. You can integrate brick pavers to also create fire pits since the clay brick material is heat and fire-resistant if you want a matching outdoor fire pit to complement your home's exterior.
The installation of pavers is the same, whether they're made from brick or concrete. What is different is what they're sealed together with, because bricks usually require mortar while concrete can be sealed with grout or another heavy-duty sealing solution. The area where your pavers will be installed must be cleared first so that they can be laid evenly on the surface and without issue. A shifting area will cause the pavers to either crack or protrude out of place over time, so it's important to space is prepped efficiently beforehand.
The aesthetic that pavers offer is one of the main reasons that we recommend them and why so many clients choose them. They’re great to look at and provide several uses around the lawn, including flowerbed barriers, paving for patios and porches, they can be used to build retaining walls, and steps, stairs, or pathways and walkways. Essentially, pavers have various uses and can be customized to match the aesthetic you want them to so they complement your outdoor space even better. Because pavers are quite simple looking in nature and very natural in color, they have many uses outside and can also be integrated into fountains, edging, as well as decks, and other outdoor surfaces.
