Reasons to Consider a Paver Patio

Published on: December 17, 2013

Patios are an important part of any outdoor living area, and there are a wide array of fabrication options. Still, all materials are not created equal. When you’re considering the construction of a new patio or the upgrade of an existing space, you may want to consider using pavers over stamped concrete and other construction materials. These are just a few of the reasons why paver patios may be the best solution for your outdoor living area.

Pavers Don’t Rot

Wooden decking requires sealing, staining and other routine maintenance to keep it looking great and in good condition. Even with all of this attention, it will eventually need full replacement because the wood will inevitably begin to degrade. When you choose a patio made from pavers, you’re choosing a material that will not degrade over time when it’s exposed to the elements outdoors.

Pavers Don’t Crack

Poured and stamped concrete can make patios look great for a while, but natural movement and shifting of the earth beneath the concrete can lead to cracking and crumbling. Interlocking pavers have natural joints between each piece, which means they’ll flex with the natural movement of the underlying soil. When they’re installed over a base of sand, the structural capacity of interlocking paver surfaces actually increases over time. Brick and concrete pavers are among the strongest paving materials on the market.

When you’re ready to build or remodel your patio, contact a professional contractor to discuss the feasibility of using concrete or brick pavers to complete the job. Because a lifetime warranty is common, you may find this long-lasting and highly customizable paving option to be just the solution for which you’ve been searching.
