The way to a pretty patio and pathway is through good surface material. When you install a patio surface material which fits your façade, you extend the loveliness of your home beyond your doorstep. In this article, we’ll give a better perspective on how and when to choose pavers as your patio surface material.
Use pavers when your home has a brick façade.
With its brick feature, pavers easily fit in and continue the brick façade effortlessly. From afar, your home looks very well put-together and upon closer look, will further give the impression of a clean and tidy backdrop.
Use pavers when you want to inject more color onto your outdoor aesthetics.
While pavers cannot be painted prettily, you can experiment with the colored blocks and lay it down to form a mosaic or even indulge in the variety of colors even cubist Picasso would have found interesting. Set down beside the monochromatic brick façade, a colored paver patio surface brings your patio to life but still keeps the neat look intact.
Do not use pavers when your outdoor terrain is uneven.
Since pavers come in brick form, an even, smooth base surface is needed to achieve the neat look. Unless you will even out the surface first, consider other patio materials which are more amenable to uneven patio surface like stamped concrete. Pavers laid on an uneven surface can be quite hazardous and result in people tripping over.
Consult with your local outdoor specialists.
While doing-it-yourself might save you some pennies, a professionally constructed patio will give you assurance and future insurance that it’ll last for a long time. Given the time saved and wealth of expertise which will be used to construct your patio, trust that it’ll be a once-and-done deal that’ll give you a lasting curb appeal!
