When installing a new deck or patio, you have numerous choices of material—including wood, poured concrete, and natural stone. However, you shouldn’t overlook concrete pavers. They offer several advantages for your patio. Here are some of the benefits of using concrete pavers.
Why You Should Get a Concrete Paver Patio
Concrete pavers are inexpensive. Depending on the quality and the size, they normally run between $3 and $10 per square foot. Moreover, you can source the blocks from any home improvement store. Their lengthy expected life span of up to 30 years makes them an economical choice over the long run as well.
Concrete pavers require little maintenance. Occasional sweeping to remove dust and grime—along with rinsing with a garden hose—is all they need. You may have to remove weeds from between the blocks, but pavers are lightweight and easy to move to give you access.
Meanwhile, other materials require seal coating, crack repair, and other yearly or biannual maintenance. Moreover, repairs are easy and inexpensive; you can replace a broken or stained block without disturbing the rest of the surface.
Poured concrete and asphalt can crack due to earthquakes, while concrete pavers are unaffected. They withstand harsh weather, high heat, sudden changes in temperature, and heavy rains. They also do not require curing, as concrete and asphalt do. Once placed, you do not have to wait to use the patio.
