Patios in Kansas City, MO are frequently the center of backyard luxury, especially in the summer. They are where the barbecues and summer parties occur, and you will likely want to keep yours inviting. Pavers work well for these outdoor living spaces and are often a cost‑effective product. If you are considering pavers for your next new patio, here are four advantages that may seal your decision:
- Easy maintenance: People who do not want to expend energy worrying about a deck often prefer pavers. Stone and concrete pavers keep their color and do not need to be sealed. Water resistance and fresh color remain unchanged, no matter the weather. They are also easy to repair. If one of your tiles cracks, you only need to replace that one, rather than your entire deck. You also will not face the structural threats to your living space that might arise using other materials. Buy extra pavers at installation time in case you need to replace one in the future. It will not only save a contractor time, but you will also have materials even if your design is discontinued.
- Easy installation: Building a deck can be time consuming and intense. There is digging to install support beams, and you’ll likely need to cut off portions of your yard or home while building continues. With pavers, the process is less complex. Installation starts with a shallow dig, followed by laying down the pavers like tile. Pavers may cost more than other patio materials, but you will make up for that cost with reduced installation time. The only precaution you need to take before installation is to make sure weed control measures are also included. Most skilled contractors offer this service, but you may consider asking anyway. You do not want to find grass growing between the seams of your pavers one year later.
- Style options: If we could describe pavers in one word, that would be “options”! Pavers come in many sizes and colors. If you choose an interlocking pattern, you can create different layouts that are limited only by your imagination. There will likely be color variations even between matching tiles, but that will only add to the character of your patio. Many of our customers prefer this natural look, and you will likely enjoy it, too.
- Sharp cuts: Matching angles is a challenge with many types of building, but that will not arise with pavers. You do not have to worry about crooked edges or tiles that fail to fit together. With the perfect cuts, everything measures up and creates a tidy look. The pavers are cut this way before they arrive onsite so you do not have to worry about extra work. It is another aspect that supports their ease of installation.
