Choose a Paver Driveway!

Written by admin on . Posted in Pavers, Roadlock®

When planning or replacing a new driveway, using pavers may never cross a person’s mind due to a few misconceptions about their performance and cost. However, what people do not know is that pavers make an excellent choice for driveways, for more reasons than just their aesthetic appeal.

Paver driveways perform well in northern climates as well as southern climates. A properly designed and installed driveway can evenly distribute heavy loads and handle seasonal variations better than alternative driveway construction materials. The reason for this is because a paver driveway, installed on a proper collective base is a durable system that works with nature.

Pavers usually have a higher price initially – due to additional labor needed to install the material. However, the development cost of a paver driveway is much lower than the other alternatives, despite possible cleaning and sealing that may have to be conducted.

There is no better way to create a great first impression than a paver driveway. Pavers offer such versatility in design that you can create your own look and feel. Here are some examples:

The Standard Look

A herringbone pattern can seem conventional when compared to some of the alternatives out there. With its traditional and clean look it stands against the test of time.

The Appearance

Every paver driveway, no matter what material it consists of, is subject to daily wear and tear. Surprisingly, the time worn appearance of pavers has proven to be a popular look because of its relaxed appearance. With several color choices, a paver can create a design for any setting.

Paver Quilting

Paver quilting is a process of combining shapes, colors and styles in various ways to create exclusive designs and combinations. This transforms your driveway from a place to park to a work of art.

Small Details

Adding even some small details can make a big visual impact. Simply changing the color of the border, adding an accent, changing the pattern or even the positioning of the pattern, can completely change the appearance.

Why Pavers are Right for You!

Written by admin on . Posted in Pavers, Pool Pavers, Remodeling

Pavers are striking and sophisticated yet practical. Dating back to thousands of years ago, cobblestone pavers were the ones to line the first established streets of the Roman Empire. Remarkably, those same streets are still in use today, illustrating the paver’s durability along with its historical beauty.

Pavers can be made from an assortment of materials including: natural stone, brick and concrete. As well as different materials, pavers also come in many shapes, styles and colors. From walkways and edging to driveways, patios and pool decks, there are many outside areas that can benefit from the touch of pavers.

Top Reasons Why Paver’s are Right for You! 

1. Strength – Artistic Pavers are stronger than poured concrete. They are tested to withstand an excess of 9,000 PSI (pound per square inch)! Also, they are weather resistant and do not crack like asphalt and concrete, making them the ideal product for your surfaces.

2.  Creative Design – Artistic Pavers come in numerous sizes, patterns and colors for amplified curb appeal. Artistic Pavers offers many design options to complement any architectural style and match any outdoor décor. There is always something to suit everyone’s taste!

3.  Ease of Repair and Maintenance – Pavers are easily removed and replaced. If a repair does need to be made, individual pavers can be removed and re-installed.

4. Safety – Concrete pavers, are slip resistant in wet conditions, making them the idyllic choice for pool areas where safety is an issue.

5. Lifetime of Value – Pavers offer an economical, long-term advantage, when considering maintenance and replacement costs of concrete and asphalt.

6. Environmentally Friendly – Interlocking pavers allow rainwater to drain through the joints, allowing natural biological processes to filter impurities from the water before reaching our waterways.

7.  Durability – Pavers are a flexible surface system that permits movement. The pavement system moves simultaneously with the earth’s tendency to distend and contract, which avoids the damage you may see with concrete slabs.

8.  Striking and sophisticated curb appeal – Artistic Pavers creates a unique and picturesque look and feel for driveways, patios, pool decks, walkways and other outdoor endeavors!

Written by admin on . Posted in Remodeling

How to replace old concrete decks without removing it? Remodel your pool deck without the hassle of removing the old cracked concrete by choosing Artistic Pavers for your deck and pool coping.
Artistic Pavers can be installed directly over your existing deck without removing it, even if the old poured concrete is cracked. If there are cracks larger than the setting sand, typically those cracks are filled with an elastomeric caulking.
Install approximately 3/4″ of sand over the existing deck then set the pavers on the sand. Lock in the perimeter with pavers set on mortar or thin-set.
Enjoy it!
