WHAT ARE CONCRETE PAVERS?

Concrete pavers are durable and beautiful paving stones made of sand, gravel, pigments, water and other performance additives. During manufacturing, wet concrete mix gets vibrated and compressed into the desired shape and size of the paver, then cured. The final product is a solid concrete paver that can withstand 8,000 psi of pressure, which is more than double the maximum pressure for poured concrete.

Concrete pavers are available in thousands of color, size, texture and style combinations to suit any home or architectural project. The unique design potential of concrete paving stones increases the aesthetic appeal of landscape designs and outshines traditional poured concrete.

Set easy-to-install paving stones over a foundation of compact soil or sand, and they do not require a sealant or grout. One of the most significant benefits of choosing concrete pavers as an alternative to poured or stamped concrete is that concrete paving stones are easy to repair, remove and re-install. They also boast a long lifetime and are less likely to get damaged by heavy foot or vehicle traffic, freezing temperatures or other harsh weather conditions. Concrete pavers create low maintenance and attractive hardscapes in any setting and are more affordable to install than poured concrete.

In recent years, concrete pavers have gained popularity in landscape design as consumers and businesses become concerned with the environmental impacts of impervious surfaces. Because concrete pavers have spaces between each stone, they allow rainwater to filter through. They reduce stormwater runoff which can cause flooding or carry pollutants into waterways. Concrete pavers are a beautiful, affordable, durable and environmentally friendly option for both commercial and residential landscaping.

TYPES OF PAVERS

Concrete paving stones are available in many types and styles for best performance in specific applications. Thinner smooth pavers can create beautiful patios and poolsides, while thick, textured pavers build durable and practical driveways. Concrete paver stones can blend into the surrounding environment or become a standout feature in landscape design.

The two primary types of concrete pavers are interlocking pavers and architectural pavers. Interlocking pavers are most common in residential landscape design for walkways, patios, driveways and more. Strong and long-lasting, interlocking concrete pavers are made of thick and stiff concrete that can withstand heavy vehicle or foot traffic. Interlocking pavers typically have edge spacers that create uniform spacing and joints. You can arrange interlocking pavers in a variety of patterns, including basketweave and herringbone, to create unique designs. With dozens of single-color and blended color options, durable interlocking pavers can fit seamlessly in any residential or commercial design.

Architectural pavers are often thinner than interlocking pavers and not well-suited for vehicle traffic. However, architectural pavers shine in patio design, courtyards, parks and pathways. These aesthetically appealing concrete pavers come in a wide variety of shapes, including irregular patterns that resemble natural stone and large, smooth slabs for a sleek and modern appeal. Architectural concrete pavers offer more design possibilities and are perfect for large-scale applications such as sidewalks and plazas at shopping centers, businesses and schools.

A third popular type of concrete pavers is permeable pavers. While all unsealed landscape paving stones allow water to pass through the spaces between them, permeable pavers are specifically for stormwater management. Permeable concrete pavers can remove hydrocarbons, heavy metals and other pollutants from rainwater before releasing it safely into the groundwater or collecting it for other uses such as irrigation. These pavers are especially useful in parks, sidewalks and other urban applications where groundwater runoff can be a serious concern. By facilitating rainwater absorption, permeable pavers can prevent urban runoff that can cause flooding and pollute waterways near cities.

STYLES OF CONCRETE PAVERS

When choosing concrete pavers, homeowners and landscape architects have a variety of colors, textures and styles to choose from. By combining colors and textures of concrete pavers, striking contrasts can become the focal point of a cohesive hardscape design. Here are a few different style elements of concrete pavers and the varieties available.

  • Color: Concrete pavers range from traditional colors like charcoal gray or rustic red to creative blends like Appalachian gray or sierra tan. Choose a single color for a uniform appeal or combine colors to create designs on sidewalks or a border around a patio.
  • Texture: Concrete pavers are available with three different surface types — smooth, tumbled or textured. Smooth concrete pavers can have matte or glossy surfaces to resemble porcelain or slate. Tumbled concrete pavers feature distressed and weathered edges that offer a beautiful and affordable alternative to cobblestone. Textured concrete pavers feature imprinted patterns that create a more visually exciting surface.
  • Stone appearance: Some concrete pavers’ design resembles other materials, such as cobblestoneslate and porcelain. These concrete pavers offer the look of natural stones without the hefty price. Because of their affordability and easy maintenance, concrete pavers offer an excellent alternative to stone pavers.

SHAPES AND SIZES OF CONCRETE PAVERS AVAILABLE

Whether you want to build a backyard patio or resurface an entire plaza, concrete pavers are available to fill spaces of any size and shape. Standard rectangular paving stones create an even and uniform look, while large square pavers can efficiently fill an expansive area. For more creative patterns, irregular, hexagonal and elongated rectangular paving stones are also available. Nitterhouse Masonry Products carries a variety of shapes and sizes of concrete pavers in both our product line and concrete pavers by Belgard. Below are some of the size and shape options we offer.

  • Rectangular: Rectangular paving stones are available in standard sizes ranging from small 4″ x 8″ pavers to large 24″ x 36″ architectural slabs.

  • Square: Square concrete paving stones are an excellent option for expansive spaces like parks, with pavers as large as 24″ x 24″ available. Small square pavers are also available in various sizes, including 6″ x 6″, 8″ x 8″ and 12″ x 12″. Our affordable square Superior Pavers offer three sizes that are perfect for commercial applications, while our Chateau Pavers, available in 6″ x 12″, 12″ x 12″ and 12″ x 18″, make it easy to create a more complex design by combining square and rectangular pavers.

Smaller rectangular pavers are well-suited for pathways, while large square and rectangular pavers create beautiful and sleek patios and sidewalks. In the end, your design preference and vision for the result will guide you to the best shape, size, style and type of paver for your project.
