Northern VA Patio Contractors for Pavers Patios and Stone Patios
Pavers Patio Installations
Pavers are used as a flooring option for outdoor areas, most commonly for patios and driveways. Pavers add sophistication to the appearance of your home and add to the landscaping and overall exterior design of your home. At Northern VA Patios & Construction we design and install stone, concrete and interlocking pavers for patios, driveways, pool decks, walkways, retaining walls and more. Pavers come in many different shapes, sizes and can be laid in many different patterns to create a unique look for your home. Pavers also come in many different colors and finishes as well and come in stone, concrete, brick, cobblestone, and flagstone.
When choosing what type of pavers you want installed, the main thing to consider is the maintenance obligation that comes with it. To ensure that your investment is long lived you must be dedicated to maintaining whichever style pavers you choose.
Maintenance for brick pavers includes having a new finish applied and a sealant placed over it once every two years to keep it looking new. The most common brick finishes come in flamed, honed, and polished. Because of the brick’s surface, chips and cracks are common. Once a paver becomes chipped, you should have it removed and replaced with a new paver.
If you are a low maintenance kind of person, concrete is your best choice because it involves very little maintenance and far less than any other patio flooring. If a concrete paver does become damaged it should also be replaced which is very easy to do.
Maintenance Tips for All Types of Pavers
The best way to care of any type of patio flooring is to hose frequently and to keep it swept. To increase the longevity of your patio floor, one should pressure wash once every year.
Installing pavers gives you the convenience of using the patio as soon as the installation is finished.
