Spending time outdoors with family and friends is a wonderful way to connect and relax. Whether you’re hosting a BBQ, a birthday party, or a lazy Sunday afternoon get-together, you and your guests want to enjoy the outdoors comfortably. Create an elegant, functional, and safe space to entertain by creating a beautiful patio outdoor living area. Two of the most popular choices for patio pavers in Dayton, Ohio include natural stone and concrete pavers. Which type is best for you? That depends on your needs and your design aesthetic.
Natural stone tends to be more durable and aesthetically pleasing, as well as requiring a bit less care long-term. The only downsides to natural stone can be the upfront cost to install, and the more naturally textured surface. Natural stone is simply that; natural…not manufactured, and it takes quite a bit of prep to get it ready to be installed in your patio or walk, as well as the fact that it takes significantly longer and more effort to install than concrete or clay pavers. That being said, you cannot beat the natural flagstone patio look and feel. =) Natural stone is an excellent upgrade and investment into your home here in southwest Ohio.
Concrete pavers are an excellent option to build your outdoor living area with, are easy to install, and come in a huge variety of styles—from rustic to contemporary—so it’s perfect if you’re looking for something more timeless-looking, or you like that sleek, clean, and modern look. Concrete pavers are an excellent step up from traditional poured concrete (think cracked concrete). If you want something that can hold up to heavy use without showing signs of wear or tear over time (and don’t mind investing a little more upfront), then concrete pavers might be a great investment for you!
When you’re ready to turn your yard and garden into a luxurious, beautiful, functional space your family and friends can enjoy, you should consider concrete or clay pavers for your hardscape areas. A patio is the perfect way for you to relax outside in the warm weather with friends and family, or sit around a fire feature in the spring or autumn, and enjoy an extended outdoor experience with nature. At Cable Bros Outdoor Services, we know that when it comes to outdoor living spaces, there’s no room for compromise. That’s why we offer a wide range of materials and designs to ensure that you get exactly what you want from your new patio or walkway!
Concrete pavers are formed at a high-density (or also known as compressive strength), usually higher than poured-in-place concrete, which means they are very durable, absorb less moisture, and can hold up to use without heaving and cracking. They’re perfect for patios because they’re easy to clean and maintain and they don’t require much maintenance. There are different levels of finish types as well, starting with a classic finish paver, then the face-mix paver, which has a denser, more color-rich finish on top to fight against wear and fading, and then you have factory sealed finishes which repel stains from that evening wine, that ketchup spill, or you can step it all the way up to elegant clay-brick mimic finishes that are simply gorgeous and timeless.
Creating and maintaining beautiful outdoor spaces with a purpose
When damage does happen to a paver patio or walk, whether from tree roots, being hit, etc, it is much easier to simply take up the affected area, and replace or reinstall it than if the same happened to a poured concrete surface. Another excellent option for a premium outdoor paver area is clay brick pavers. Clay pavers have been around for thousands of years, functioning as roads, plazas, and more. The old-world feel and durability of clay pavers is second-to-none. Skeptical? Go find a brick road in some of the nearby old towns here around Dayton Ohio and see how they’ve held up to some of the worst abuse.
