Different Types of Patio Pavers

Patio pavers are available in a variety of sizes, shapes and colors. You will find a range of pavers for patios in home improvement stores but Decorative Paving Systems can provide you with custom patio paver patterns and designs.
Types of Pavers
We have the latest styles in pavers which help you keep in touch with the latest trends. There are a variety of patio pavers made of different materials, and all have different installation specifics. Let’s take a look at the kinds of pavers that are available:
- Brick Pavers - These can be used instead of concrete patio pavers and are available in a range of finishes. You can opt for either the textured ones with a rustic finish or smooth ones that also look very stunning. Since patio pavers are small and very lightweight, it becomes easy to install them in a very short span of time. The brick pavers that we use in our project are of the highest grade and can withstand extreme weather changes.
- Concrete Pavers - These patio pavers too are available in a range of sizes, colors and shapes. Most of these interlock and the patterns are also made accordingly. The interlocking system prevents them from shifting and they lend a very finished look to your patio. Since these are set directly on compacted sand, the installation is very quick.
Tile Pavers - Ceramic tiles are a great option for homeowners who do not want concrete or brick pavers for their patio. These are available is various hues which can make your patio look very colorful and lively. They are all available in factory-cut uniform shapes and there is no trouble in installation.
These are an economical alternative to actually replacing an existing concrete slab. It is best to use textured tiles for patios as the smooth ones tend to become slick and are dangerous. Vinyl fencing and vinyl siding can be used to finish the edges of ceramic tile flooring.
- Natural Stone Pavers - Those who prefer a natural and earthy look should opt for natural stone pavers. These are available in uniform and irregular shapes. Flagstone is a very common choice for patio pavers and these can be set on a concrete pad with mortar. Alternatively, they can also be set in sand. Slate and bluestone pavers add an amazing look to the patio and the surfaces as well. The textures of patio pavers are always different and they are very naturally slip-resistant.
The pavers that you choose should blend well with the design of your home as well as the landscape that it leads out to. Another important thing is to have an experienced company carry out the installation for you. Call Decorative Paving Systems at 214-343-9809 for the best patio pavers.
