Pavers - Patio, Driveways, Pools

Is your house missing some aesthetic appeal and you can't quite put your finger on it? More than likely it's because your home blends in with most other homes in the neighborhood. One simple solution to standout from your next door neighbor is to install paving stones.

Paving stones are stones that are laid in sand to create patios, driveways, courtyards, walkways, decking, garden walls, and many other features to set your home apart.

The major benefits of the paving stone are its strength, durability, and aesthetic appeal. Not only is the paving stone stronger than concrete, but it can withstand large amounts of traffic as well as constant and extreme temperature changes and should any stone become damaged, it can be easily replaced.

Another major advantage of the paving stone is that it is water resistant and forces water to drain into the sand-filled joints. The sand-filled joints help lock the stones in place and add sturdiness while maintaining its visual appeal and flexibility, which are key factors as to why its popularity is growing amongst homeowners.

An additional key benefit the paving stone brings to the table is its immediate impact on visual appeal and its ease of installation. But because paving stones don't require mortar to install, it doesn't mean they don't require a little bit of work. Some homeowners choose to install them on their own, while other homeowners choose to hire a paver or contractor.
