Nothing makes a house feel like a home as much as a beautiful, relaxing outdoor living area. In many yards, this area is set up on the deck. Still, a beautiful patio can also be outfitted with comfortable seating or any other outdoor living elements that you like. If you’re planning a new patio area, consider the many benefits of paver patios before you dive into this hardscaping project.
Concrete pavers have incredible versatility because they come in so many shapes, sizes, and colors. You could choose pavers that mimic the look of natural stone, or you could choose a selection of colors and create a pattern or design. The possibilities for creativity are endless because of all of the options available. Additionally, the pavers don’t have to be limited to the patio you walk on. You can use them for other projects, from walking paths to garden borders to concrete benches, so that the look and design that you settle on for your patio is carried throughout your whole landscape.
Once you decide on your perfect paver patio, you won’t have to dread the days to come when you have to do exhausting maintenance tasks. Concrete pavers require very little maintenance. While your neighbors are staining and sealing their wood decks to protect them from the sun, wind, and rain, you will merely be sweeping them off. The most intensive work you might have to do is to add more sand to the joints every three years or so if it’s needed. Additionally, if you ever do find that a paver has been cracked or stained (however unlikely), you can replace just the impacted stone, rather than having a costly and time-intensive repair project on your hand.
Finally, pavers are an extremely durable option for a patio material. Compared to most of the other commonly used materials, they are one of the strongest and most durable. You won’t need to install an awning or an umbrella unless you want one because these pavers can withstand all of the abuse that mother nature can throw out. They are resistant to wind and water damage, sun bleaching, and even the wear and tear of foot traffic. If your patio is going to be pool-side, these pavers are still an excellent option because they are naturally slip-resistant.
