What are the best patio pavers?
Choosing the right pavers in Houston starts with a detailed patio design idea. Many homeowners prefer to have the patio either match the home and/or the existing landscaping. If the patio is slated to come off a family or living room, it might be wise to take into consideration the color scheme of the room. Taking design elements and colors from the inside room helps smooth the transition to the outside living space.
Homeowners can choose between concrete, stone, tiles, brick and driveway pavers. It’s important to consider the initial cost of the pavers and the required yearly maintenance. Some pavers need very little maintenance. Other pavers need to be treated with a non-slip coating and sealed against the elements.
How much do patio pavers cost?
The total cost of pavers in Houston primarily depends on the size of the patio. Larger patios cost less per square foot but have a higher total cost. Smaller patios cost less overall but are more expensive per square foot.
Prices for pavers vary greatly, depending on the type of paver used. Concrete pavers fall in the middle at $10 to $15 a square foot and up.
How to install patio pavers?
There are two ways to install pavers, including DIY and contractor installation. The most inexpensive way to install pavers is by performing a DIY installation. However, a do-in-yourself installation is time consuming and involve a lot of manual labor, that includes digging and laying a foundation. To install a 400 square foot patio, the homeowner must dig a 20 by 20 square to a minimum depth of six inches. The area must then be filled with a compacted sub base and graded until it is a level surface. Once the area is graded, the homeowner is free to lay the pavers.
A professional contractor, including Wood Crafters, can install pavers in Houston. A reputable contractor will talk to the potential client on the phone and schedule an at-home estimate. The contractor should have a business license, insurance paperwork and references with them available. The contractor should listen to the home owner’s ideas, come up with a preliminary plan and a preliminary estimate of material and labor costs. Upon acceptance of the estimate, the contractor should provide a tentative start date and a completion date.
