By now, you may have come across an abundance of paver options and are torn between which one to use for your next project in Easley, SC. Umbriano pavers from Unilock are worth consideration for their beauty and durability and for the fact that they work well with a variety of architectural styles and landscape design themes. Here are five ways to use Umbriano pavers.
Versatility of Umbriano Pavers
Umbriano pavers are a versatile choice for outdoor living spaces. If you love the look of granite and are looking for a high-end, sleek modern paver with character, Umbriano could be the perfect choice.
What makes Umbriano pavers so special is that each one is made using ColorFusion technology, which randomly disperses granite particles as well as color throughout the paver, giving it a unique mottled appearance. Umbriano also features a durable and low-maintenance EasyClean finish, slip resistance when wet, and contemporary colors including French Grey, Midnight Sky, Summer Wheat, and Winter Marvel.
Around the pool, the most important things are safety and comfort. You need a non-slip texture that stays non-slip even when the kids have splashed half of the pool water out of the pool. And you probably want a subtle surface texture that feels good on bare feet and won’t snag swimsuits. The light color options (Summer Wheat, French Grey, and Winter Marvel) remain cool to the touch even on the hottest days. Choose the cool greys for a sophisticated poolside vibe, or the sandy Summer Wheat to remind you of your favorite seaside getaway.
The timeless look of granite works just as well underfoot as it does on a countertop. Since Umbriano pavers feature EasyClean Stain Resistance, you can be sure that any outdoor kitchen accidents are no big deal to clean up. Even acidic sauces like ketchup won’t stain your pavers.
Achieve a relaxed look on your patio with Umbriano pavers. The pavers come in a random bundle of large rectangles, medium squares, and small rectangles, which can be laid in a number of patterns to suit your style. For the most expansive look, choose a joint compound that closely matches the color of the pavers; this will minimize the appearance of joint lines.
Once again, the non-slip feature of Umbriano pavers comes into play at your front entry walk. Aside from practicality, Umbriano pavers add a stylish flair to your front entrance.
The 7”x14” size, in an 80mm (3.15” thickness) can be used on your driveway to give your entire landscape a finished, put-together look. Even though driveways take a lot of abuse from snow shovels and plows, you won’t have to worry about Umbriano pavers looking chipped or worn. Unilock EnduraColor technology products is a two-step manufacturing process that combines a base of coarse aggregates for a stronger foundation, with concentrated color and wear-resistant finer aggregates on top. The lighter color aggregates won’t show through even if a paver is scratched. In the case of more pronounced damage, you can replace individual pavers rather than the entire driveway.
As a bonus, you can install driveway heating systems under your driveway, walkways, and patio. Just imagine: no more Um or plowing, and a dry, safe, and virtually pristine surface for many years to come.
