residential paving patios

As a homeowner, it is understandable if you want to beautify your home. In fact, you would be definitely looking for ways to make your home stand out from the rest. After all, the home is where your heart is. Paving your patio, whether you are adding one or changing the current pavers, is a landscape investment. There are a lot of materials available in the market today for your paving needs. It can be overwhelming when it comes to choosing the right one, but if you know the different types and their uses, you will be able to know which one would perfectly suit your needs.

The following are the different types of pavers that you can consider whether it will be a good choice for your home or not.


Concrete is becoming a popular choice among homeowners because of its versatility. It can be used anywhere on your property. It can be designed to resemble other expensive materials at almost half the price. It is easy to repair and has low maintenance needs. If installed properly and with regular maintenance, it can last for a long time. It is durable that it can withstand different weather conditions. So whether you are in a place with extreme weathers, you can be assured that your concrete patio paver can withstand the temperature changes. Additionally, concrete patio paver comes in multiple combinations and color patterns that you can choose from.
Before choosing the concrete paver patio, proper planning is needed as to where you will be installing the paver and how big the area is. The basic installation process is also important.


Rubber is another excellent choice as an alternative to concrete. It is perfect for both indoor and outdoor living areas. Since it is lightweight, rubber is a great choice for decks, patios, walkways and driveways. It is slip-resistant, easy to install, and has low maintenance requirements. Using regular detergent, water, and a brush, cleaning the rubber patio paver is going to be simple and easy. It is durable and can withstand heavy foot and car traffic. Rubber is a perfect choice if you prefer DIY patio installation.


Brick has been an all time favorite because of its traditional, authentic look. Once installed, it will add beauty and charm to your property. Because of its popularity, there is high demand for improving the colors, sizes, and shape. However, red brick is still the most favorite choice among homeowners.

Because of its traditional look, brick can be used in old, modern or Mediterranean landscape.
A lot of homeowners choose brick because of its durability. It can withstand time and heavy foot traffic. It is ideal not only for residential use but also for all commercial paving needs. Another important feature a brick has is its ability to adjust itself to the natural contour of the underlying soil. Unlike concrete, when there are changes in the underlying soil, it will break. But with bricks, it will go with the movement of the ground. Even though it’s a bit heavier compared to rubber, brick is easy to install, a perfect choice if you prefer to do the paving yourself. Because of its abrasives, it has high friction making it slip-resistant.


Granite is another popular choice if you want beautiful paving options for your patio. Most architects and contractors prefer to use granite because of its following benefits. It is easy to maintain. Regular cleaning and sealing once every year is enough for a granite type of patio. It is fireproof and resistant to heat making it an excellent choice if you are living in fire-prone areas. Lastly, it is easy to repair. If in case it does get damaged, it is very easy to repair and less costly compared to the rest of the materials.


Stone is another popular choice. It can be used not only on your patio but also on your driveways and walkways. It is very durable and strong making your patio last a long time. Because it can withstand any weather temperatures, it has less risk of getting damage and cracking. In fact, it is a couple of times more durable compared to a poured concrete. Flagstones, marble, and slate are the most popular choice among the stone type.

Since it is water resistant it will allow the water to drain into its sand-filled joints, which helps in the sturdiness of the patio.

There you have it. You just need to consider a few factors before finally making a choice. You can start with how big the paving area will be. The color, type, and shape are also important. You can also mark the area where you plan to construct the patio pavers. Lastly, you can finish with your budget. Yes, adding pavers into your property can be a little bit expensive. However, it is an investment.
