Concrete pavers are a popular outdoor hardscapes option. Concrete Pavers are manufactured in a factory in specific shapes, sizes and colors and are most commonly installed over a compacted base of soil and sand. A concrete paver has to be allowed to set as they are a porous form of brick formed by mixing small stone hardcore, dyes, cement, sand and other materials in various amounts.
Because there isn’t any grout between the joints, concrete pavers offer a permeable surface that allows water to pass through. However, this also means that they may shift over time and that weeds could grow between the stones. Hiring a professional paver contractor to install your pavers, rather than laying them yourself, is the best way to protect your patio, driveway or sidewalk from these concerns.
The use of concrete pavers is growing rapidly on both commercial and residential construction projects. Pavers can be installed on your driveway, on a walkway, and on a patio. There are many different laying patterns that can be achieved using concrete pavers.
The most common of these is the herringbone pattern. This pattern is the strongest of the block paving bonds as it offers the most interlock, therefore making it a good choice for driveways and road surfacing. A herringbone pattern can be created by setting the blocks at either 45 degrees or 90 degrees to the perpendicular.
Other popular types of pattern include stretcher bond and basketweave; with the latter being better suited to paved areas that will only receive light foot traffic, due to its weaker bond.
