Patios provide the perfect place to relax after a long day or even to gather with friends and family. When installing a patio, you have a multitude of options to choose from, but one proves to be superior – that’s pavers. Pavers are stones that are typically made from concrete; they can also be made from clay bricks or natural stone. A&N Lawn Service, your local retaining wall installers, share these reasons why pavers are the way to go.
Pavers are made from either concrete, clay bricks, or natural stone, providing you with a variety of choices. The individual pieces also vary in size, colors, and patterns which allow you to make your patio vision come to life. When pavers are installed correctly, they create strong and flexible pavement that is not at risk of cracking or breaking. Pavers prove to be stronger than the concrete foundation of most homes which is why manufacturers offer a lifetime warranty.
The process to replace one or a few paver stones is easier than breaking a concrete slab and filling it again. If your pavers have debris, you can easily sweep or blow it away. Stains can also be cleaned with soap and water. To tackle tougher stains, use chemicals to get rid of them. To lessen the probability of stains, you can get sealants sprayed on your patio.
Pittsburgh weather is known to change at any moment in time. Climate is a factor that can impact your patio, especially during winter. The ground freezes and thaws which expands and contracts as the temperature fluctuates. The changes can move your patio and cause cracks in the weaker portions. Now, this tends to happen in concrete patios, but with paver patios, it tends to flex individually and return to its original position.
Pavers are also beneficial to retaining walls. Because of their durability, they can provide a multitude of looks for your retaining wall. They can also last longer as they keep loose soils from building up around your home. Pavers allow for the retaining walls to be built within the outdoor landscape, combating the change in climates. Additionally, pavers are easier to clean and stronger than concrete and brick that retaining walls are typically made from.
