Concrete Pavers are a great choice for elevating the aesthetic appeal of your property, and when it comes to designing a concrete paver patio there are more benefits than visual appeal alone. Here are 5 top benefits for choosing pavers for your next patio.
With an extensive selection of options to choose from, pavers can be laid in patterns to compliment any home’s design. Concrete pavers come in a variety of colors, finishes, and shapes, so your patio can be transformed into anything that reflects your own personal style. See our project gallery for ideas on everything from simple to elaborate interlocking paver designs.
Turf is one of the least sustainable parts of landscaping and requires a significant amount of upkeep from regular watering to lawn mowing. Concrete pavers offer great design that is user-friendly and easy to incorporate into the natural elements of your garden’s design. Instead of filling open spaces with grass, pavers create intrigue and help you to partition off spaces that can be used for anything from an entertaining area to a cozy outdoor reading den. Best of all, pavers reduce your water usage and the need for regular upkeep. Just take a look at these inspiring 12 Ideas for Landscaping Without Grass from HGTV.
If you find yourself with a stained or broken paver, the repair work is low maintenance. Because a patio designed out of pavers has multiple components, it makes replacing one relatively simple. Reparation is also made easy because it can be done without disrupting the overall appearance of your patio’s design, and can also be executed without the assistance of a professional depending on the intricacy of your patio design.
Concrete paver patios are relatively straightforward to install depending on the complexity of the design. Pavers are designed to fit together on a bed of sand in a similar fashion to puzzle pieces: the more detailed the puzzle, the more work involved. So whether you are planning to set up your new patio yourself or with the help of a certified installer, once the pavers are in place they are ready to use.

Good in Extreme Weather
Pavers are designed to withstand extreme weather conditions and have more durability and strength than stamped concrete. If you are looking for a patio that is highly resistant to cracking, pavers are a great choice. Another great feature that can be integrated into your patio design is a system designed to melt ice and snow. Not only does it help to reduce the longterm wear and tear of snow, salt and ice, but it also means no need to shovel snow if you choose to use your patio year round. That said, pavers are unique to other forms of concrete in that they
are less likely to damage from the sudden changes in temperature that come with rapid ice and thaw cycles in winter. So even without a built-in snow melting system, your concrete paver patio will keep its appearance regardless of the seasonal changes.
