Benefits of Columbia SC Concrete Pavers for your Driveway, Patio or Walkway

Designing with Concrete Pavers

Designers choose pavers styles to harmonize with the surrounding area. Two colors of pavers can be combined to provide interest in large areas. Columbia SC Pavers also come in blended colors to add interest.      Pavers are similar to other colored concrete, or brick products: shade variations may occur. This can result from slight variations in dye lots and the raw materials used. Install pavers from several pallets at a time.

Here are some additional design considerations :

Columbia SC Pavers can be selected to complement the stone or facade on the building. Oftentimes, pavers one or two shades lighter than the structure are selected so as not to compete for attention with the structure. The use of brick pavers with wood or stone houses adds warmth. Pavers can have different textures. When different textures are combined it adds interest. Avoid long straight rows of pavers. If straight runs are required, lay the edge pavers parallel to the edge of the path and use a basket weave pattern in the interior. For Victorian style housed, repeat the curves of the arched windows and doors by designing curved edges. For rectangular colonial styles, repeat the shape by using brick-shaped pavers. For brick homes, select pavers lighter than the brick used on the home or use cobblestone.

Columbia SC Brick Patios Traditional brick patios should be built over a 4-inch concrete slab. The bricks are now set in a mortar bed and leveled one at a time. Then all the spaces between the bricks are filled with a grout. This is can be rather expensive because one is building two surfaces. Interlocking Columbia SC brick patios are far more economical because they are set in sand instead of in mortar over concrete.

Columbia SC Flagstone Patios Flagstone is a generic term for thin flat rock that is used for paving flat surfaces. Flagstone is named from the location of the quarry it comes from. Arizona red is a reddish sand stone; Pennsylvania blue is a grey blue. The cost of the stone is proportional to the shipping distance. It is best to pour a concrete slab and set the stone in mortar on the slab. However, in the interest of economy the stones can be set directly over the soil. They will move and shift over time and will have to be readjusted from time to time.

Columbia SC Pavestones Patios The price of pavestones is more affordable today than before. The techniques have improved and the skill in laying the stones has been expanded. When one compares similar aspects of a stamped concrete patio done correctly costs are usually less. However when the advantages of each are compared the paving stones far outweigh the concrete.
