We specialize in designing and installing paving stones for patios, walkways, and driveways.
What are paving stones? Paving stones or pavers are individual blocks or bricks that are made out of concrete or clay. We prefer to install concrete paving stones for their uniformity and durability. Concrete paving stones are manufactured in many different sizes, shapes, and colors. This gives homeowners many options when selecting the perfect paver for their home. We install paving stones using the installation techniques of the Interlocking Concrete Paving Institute (ICPI), website. The ICPI has created installation guidelines that are the industry standard for correctly installing paving stones.
How do paving stones compare to other products? There are many materials to construct a patio, walkway, or driveway with, however we feel that paving stones are a superior product. When paving stones are installed on a gravel and sand base it is called a flexible paving system. A flexible paving system moves with the freeze / thaw process that occurs in our climate. This means that pavers do not crack or break, unlike concrete or asphalt. Another great feature of a paver patio is the ease of repair. Since mortar or concrete are not used during the installation paving stones may be picked up, repaired, and replaced without showing any signs of repair. If concrete or asphalt is repaired, it shows signs of the repair forever. Paving stones also have more color options, shapes, and sizes then decorative or stamped concrete.
