Choosing Concrete Pavers For Your Outdoor ProjectNovember 25th, 2020 | by paver_guys
Whether you’re considering an interlocking concrete paver patio, walkway, driveway or other project for your Bay Area home, there are a few factors you should consider including color, size, texture and how the surface will be used. Concrete pavers are one of the most popular choices among homeowners in San Ramon and other cities not only because of their beauty, but flexibility and durability. Here’s what to keep in mind when making your decision.
Texture. From smooth to rough, texture plays a role in the appearance of your project along with functionality. You can incorporate various textures to create dimension and interest in your landscape. If you’re thinking of a pool deck, you would want a surface that’s slip-resistant for the safety of your family and guests. The texture(s) you choose may also work to complement the landscape and your home’s architectural elements.
Large pavers or small? Interlocking concrete pavers come in a wide array of sizes depending on the application. For instance, thickness is an important factor if you’re installing pavers in a driveway, as you’ll need a surface that supports the weight of vehicles. A gracefully curving walkway looks even more appealing when smaller pavers are used for the walking area, and larger ones as a border. All of the sizes let you be creative!
Of course color is vital. You wouldn’t want pavers colored in a way that clash with your home and landscape, however depending on the colors you choose you can create a beautiful contrast or make everything blend together seamlessly by using complementary colors. While color and pattern don’t affect functionality or durability, they do have a dramatic impact on visual appeal.
