If a new backyard or patio is in your future, consider using interlocking pavers as opposed to natural stone, concrete or asphalt. They’re more stylish and easier to maintain, so they look great for decades. Choose from a wide range of finishes, colors, shapes and sizes. And since there is a variety of styles, you can lay them in patterns that complement any home’s architecture.
Let us geek out for a minute. Pavers have a compression strength of over 8,000 pounds per square inch and have several advantages over other materials. Surfaces like flagstone, concrete and wood are porous so they absorb more water, making them prone to mildew. Mildew isn’t an issue with interlocking pavers because they’re extremely dense and don’t absorb water.
Unlike all other fixed patio surfaces, pavers create a floating system that doesn’t show structural damage, so they provide decades of lasting beauty while other surfaces show cracks, crumbling and rotting over time.
We install them the right way
Great finishes begin with a great foundation. And at Paver Connection, the true value of your system depends on what you don’t see. To make sure your paver project is done right, we demolish the existing surfaces and excavate the soil. We lay down a base for drainage and stability, and carefully place each paver on top. Everything is held in place with a steel-reinforced perimeter restraint buried below the surface. You may also add a sealer, which makes the pavers’ surface more durable and more beautiful.
Pavers are like a zipper in the pavement, because you can remove and replace badly stained or damaged pavers easily by “opening and closing” them with very little equipment. Once fixed, they show no ugly patches, and the fix integrates with your existing pavers. Pavers require no curing, so it’s faster and easier to complete the repair. Plus, you can reuse undamaged pavers if you need to.
