Adding a professionally installed patio to your home allows you to increase your living space into the great outdoors. A patio can create space to dine with friends, lounge with a good book, or relax fireside on a cool evening. Creating a great patio takes some thought and the help of a landscape professional to assist with a great design and to ensure the best return on your investment.
Landscaping, including patios, can help increase your home’s value. Choosing the right product for your patio takes careful thought and consideration to determine the right product for the space and your budget.
Concrete pavers are a popular choice among homeowners and installation contractors alike. Pavers come in a wide array of colors and sizes, offering endless options for design and creativity when designing your patio. When working with your landscape professional talk to them about your likes and dislikes in terms of patio styles; do you prefer a more traditional patio with curves or a more contemporary patio with straight lines? Looking through Unilock’s photo collections here will help you to discover what’s possible.
Concrete pavers are very durable and are easy to work with, making installation in many cases quicker than if an irregular natural stone product had been selected. Pavers are also easy to make repairs if needed, whether it is lifting the existing stone and relaying it or purchasing additional stone and adding it to an existing patio.
A very important consideration when choosing a patio material is the longevity of the paver’s color. This is very important as we are often placing furniture, BBQs, and outdoor rugs on our patios for long periods of time only to decide years down the road to purchase new furniture that is place differently. Unilock offers fade-resistant paving stones for Southampton, NY using advanced technology such as Enduracolor Plus.
When installed correctly, concrete pavers offer a low maintenance solution for homeowners. Like any product there will be some maintenance in terms of cleaning your patio and replacing the jointing sand as needed, the maintenance required to keep your patio looking as good as the day it was installed is much lower than with wood decking or gravel patios.
As an alternative or companion for pavers, nothing is more beautiful than the colors and textures of natural stone. A timeless design choice for Long Island, NY homeowners, Natural Stone makes an excellent choice for outdoor patio spaces, walkways, and pool decks.
