When it comes to versatility, pavers are the go-to material whether you're building your patio yourself or hiring a reputable contractor. Pavers can be used for sidewalks and walkways to large contoured areas in your yard used for family gatherings and parties with your friends. The benefits of using pavers are that they require very little maintenance if installed correctly. Typical all that is needed is some sealing every few years.
When choosing the type of paver you’d like to use for your project there are several different types to choose from.

Another choice you can make are real stone pavers but stone pavers are typically more expensive than their brick and concrete counterparts. Stone pavers come in many different shapes and sizes giving you more options for designing than you would get with the materials mentioned above. In addition, the authenticity of the coloring is unmistakable. You’ll enjoy earthy hues of light, medium and darker browns for that one of a kind natural stone look.
Stone pavers actually come from quarries and come in standard sizes both thick and thin. The Stone pavers can be made from granite, bluestone, limestone and other types of stone.
If you would like to use sustainable material and go “green” for your patio there are composite pavers made from recycled materials including plastic and scrap tires. These pavers use less energy during the manufacturing process and release less carbon into the environment. Other benefits to composite pavers are that they are very light weight compared to real bricks. The light weight makes them suitable for resurfacing wood decks and they are very easy to cut with a circular saw.
Next on the agenda is to choose the pattern style for you deck or walkway. Pavers can be arranged in many different patterns and shapes which can create unique patios. Variations in pattern include muster K, herringbone, running pattern, basketweave, and cobblestone just to name a few.
Next is installation. There are numerous ways we can install your patio. We can install over a concrete patio or walkway that already exists, install over an existing wood deck or we can prepare a whole new area by digging out several inches of earth within the design, filling with sand and gravel that has bed compacted to a solid foundation making it secure to lay down the pavers.after the pavers are laid we brush and into all the cracks between the pavers which firms everything up. To help keep your patio maintenance free we lay weed cloth down before laying the pavers to prevent weeds from coming up on your new patio.
It’s important to consider the area where you wish to install a patio. Larger areas are best served using smaller pavers to create nice designs and flowing patterns. Smaller areas should be surfaced with a larger material as small pavers will create a “busy” look taking away form the beauty of your new patio.
