Interestingly, these pavers do not retain identical sizes like concrete and brick pavers. We can help you choose everything including the paver style, design, and color to complement the existing space.
Stone pavers are among the most appealing and valued hardscaping materials among property owners, contractors, builders, architects, and designers. Their beauty, decorative potential, and durability make them widely popular in landscaping projects.
Some of the popular stone paver options and their applications are as follows:
- Granite: Granite is available in a variety of finishes and patterns including flamed, polished, and honed. We use these stone pavers for driveways, walkways, decks, and patios.
- Marble: Marble is available in many colors, shapes, and patterns. We will recommend it for areas that receive light foot traffic, such as patios, pool decks, and outdoor fireplaces.
- Bluestone: Bluestone has been known for its blue-gray color, but it is available in many more color options. Thermal and natural clefts are common finishes. We are extensively using it for walkways, patios, decks, and gardens.
We also use limestone, flagstone, and other stone pavers that can withstand the elements and different levels of loads. Some of the popular stone paver finishes that we work with include polished, honed, thermal, and flamed. When it comes to shapes, you can choose from square, diamond, round, hexagonal, marquise, and many half-course shapes. The common patterns include:
