pavers for patios, sidewalks, and driveways is becoming more and more
popular in the United States and Canada, because of their affordability,
strength, and durability.
Americans everywhere — from California to
New England, from Texas to Minnesota — are spending more time at
home and more time outdoors. A concrete patio can be a great place
to spend time.
Back yards are being transformed into luxurious
extensions of the house. They’re the new favorite room to relax,
entertain, and cook. And the heart and soul of the backyard resort
area is the concrete patio.
The Hearth, Patio, and Barbecue Association,
which recently held its annual tradeshow and exposition, says the
growth of the outdoor living phenomena is the result of North America’s
interest in ‘cocooning,’ the trend toward a more casual lifestyle,
an aging population and the popularity of porches, decks, and concrete
patios in homes.
The swimming pool industry sees that trend,
too. In fact, pools are getting smaller and are playing a less dominant
role in the back yard.
The Pool and Spa Institute says the pool
is just one amenity — an increasing number of homeowners are going
all out with outdoor kitchens, furnished seating areas, fireplaces,
decorative concrete patios, pizza ovens, elaborate water features,
Homeowners want to enjoy their homes, but
they also see upgrading their back yards as an investment.
Pavers offer a wide variety of paving options. With the many sizes,
shapes, colors, designs and patterns available, combined with slip
resistance and attractive finishes, patio pavers are one of the
most versatile paving products available.
pavers can also be replaced at anytime, making repairs easy and
affordable. Many common applications include: patios, entrance areas,
sidewalks, walkways, terraces, garden paths, pool decks and courtyards.
pavers create entertaining areas ranging from informal, intimate
spaces to large, formal terraces. Steps provide comfortable transitions
from one level to another.
