When planning to install a patio in your outdoor living space, you should use a durable and long-lasting material. Pavers are the best option for your new patio because of their unmatched durability that stands the test of time. We mean it when we say it will stand the test of time because pavers can last up to 100 years if given proper maintenance. What's more, pavers are very low-maintenance and they can be easily repaired if they should ever crack.

Plus, pavers offer a plethora of design possibilities that allow you to create different looks for your property, be it modern or rustic. Continue reading to understand why pavers are the best option for your new patio in Indiana.

Pavers Are Durable, Long-Lasting, & Weather-Resistant

Pavers are a great material to build a patio with because of their superior durability. They can hold a lot of weight without breaking under pressure. In fact, they can hold about 8,000 pounds of pressure per square inch. What's more, pavers are built to last, and if they are cared for properly, can last between 50 to 100 years!

Areas with hot summers and cold winters such as Indiana mean the ground can expand and let water in, which can potentially crack and damage your patio. However, pavers won't let you experience that. Pavers are weather-resistant, meaning they won't break despite fluctuating weather conditions. They can also be installed in an interlocking manner to improve their durability further.

Because of the ability of pavers to hold such immense weight, pavers are also excellent materials for a driveway.

Pavers Are Low-Maintenance & Easy to Fix

Of course, as with all patio materials, pavers require maintenance too to keep them looking great. While good preparation of the ground is critical before installation, pavers are very low-maintenance once installed. They will only need the occasional sweeping to keep dust off them. Some scrubbing will also do your pavers good to remove stubborn stains and make them look pristine.

Additionally, they are also easy to fix. If a paver breaks, which rarely happens, you don't need to take out every paver laid down on your patio. You can simply remove and replace the broken paver and leave the rest intact.

To top all of the benefits pavers have to offer, they will ultimately improve the aesthetics of your property. Pavers are available in different colors and textures, allowing you to choose an option that's just right for you. Their design range lets you create either a complementary look between your patio and the rest of your property or a contrasting appeal that adds interest to your home.

Pavers allow you to bring out your creative side with these options:

  • Color - Pavers can come in a variety of different color options.
  • Textures - There are also different paver textures, so you can choose an option that meets your needs.
  • Shapes - While rectangular is the most common shape of pavers, they are also available in numerous other shapes.
  • Patterns - You can choose from different pattern options like herringbone, basketweave, and running bond when installing pavers.

The design possibilities are virtually endless, and your imagination's the limit!
