Driveway Pavers may not the first thing you think of when you consider the words “elegant”, “sophistication” or “beautiful charm”, but they should be, followed next by the term patio covers in Houston. There is little you can do for curb appeal enhancement that speaks louder than paving your driveway with aesthetically sophisticated pavers to blend and match the details of your home and its landscaping. The driveway pavers lend to architecturally pleasing curves and designs in an original custom design you prefer. There are many popular designs available for your selection.
In the past, cement was used primarily for driveways, and sometimes colored cement was poured. However, cracks in cement tend to be eye sores and need to have an entire section removed and replaced, never an exercise that does not shout “repair” for years afterward. Today, driveway pavers and patio covers come in a variety of options. You can select stone, brick and concrete, and the many hues of color of these materials. Unlike the unattractive repair of cement, should a paving stone ever be dislodged or broken, that one stone can be replaced without drawing attention to the repair.
While skill is minimal to lay patio covers in Houston or driveway pavers, it is certainly advisable to retain a contractor to ensure speed and quality of the finished job. Wood Crafters of Houston owns Bellaire Pavers, which specializes in laying simple and complex designs. Each and every customer receives personalized attention, detailed written estimates and their driveway or patio plans. The initial labor is digging foundations and filling this with sand, gravel or both. Once the foundation has been poured and graded, the stones can be laid in your desired design or pattern.
If you are considering a DIY project, you can figure your costs on the cost of pouring cement per foot, and the paving stones for each piece. Framing wood is a negligible cost but the stones will depend on your selections, and their price will be dictated by the per piece expense of the pavers. You would save financially by laying pavers yourself and also do foundation pouring and framing. However, it is a labor intense project. You have to pay attention and effort to details. You want pavers smoothly level with no trips or dips to hamper walking. This is extremely important with patio covers, where you will be walking, standing and sitting for its use. Patio cover stones should drain off to one side slightly, but not so much that it is readily seen.
Clearly,the better agenda would be to hire Wood Crafters professional paving experts to perform a speedy, efficient and quality job. The beautiful curbside appeal of the paving stone driveway and also as covering for your patio increase not only function and appearance, but also the property valuation of your home.
