When it’s time to plan for your front or backyard patio – we can dream as big or as small as you want to! Sometimes our projects start from a concrete patio that has been aged by the weather, cracking or sinking. Due to the weather fluctuations in Pittsburgh, this is common.
Paver patios continue to grow in popularity because they provide a much more unique look and feel on their property instead of decks or concrete. In addition to looking really great, they’re usually easier to repair and for those reasons paver patios make a great alternative to traditional concrete.
You can design your next patio in different sizes, shapes, colors, thickness and textures.
Common Types of Paver Patios in Pittsburgh
- Natural Stone Pavers
- Concrete Pavers
- Brick Pavers
- Clay Pavers
Natural stone pavers are premium pavers and come at a higher price point. Stone has an undeniable track record for strength, longevity and durability. Just look to the pyramids in Egypt or the Colosseum in Rome.
However, there are products on the market today including TechoBloc that offer modern precast concrete pavers and slabs at an affordable price point. Not only is the product cost easier to swallow, they’re specifically designed for landscaping which makes installation faster, saving you money on your overall project.
Creating paver patios can be difficult and require a lot of equipment. This is why many homeowners decide to look for a local contractor to help.
The Dream Greener Way to Installing Paver Patios and Walkways in Pittsburgh
When it comes to your project, we start with a simple layout or design. You’ll be able to see what your patio will look like, visualized graphically using our computers. Once you approve it, we’ll get to work.
Before we get started, we will check the grading and add any necessary drainage systems so that water doesn’t filter towards your house. We’ll remove any existing concrete or turf to start with a blank slate.
Next, we install the edging and a compacted minus base. The base layer is extremely important and we use polymeric sand and a compacted minus base to ensure that your patio will not shift and weeds won’t grow between the pavers.
We’ll lay your pavers or walkway in the design you choose. Consider the options below, but there are plenty more!
Common Paver Patio and Walkway Designs:
- Basket Weave
- Standard Brick Layer
After everything is set, we ensure that we remove all of our equipment off site, blow off the area and hose it down with water. When we’re finished, your hardscaping will be ready to use immediately and you’ll absolutely love your new patio or walkway. A final walk through will be conducted and we’ll give you an opportunity to review our services online.
