Concrete pavers – premium performance at a budget price

Premium quality and performance at a budget price – it sounds like an impossible dream. After all, who wouldn’t want to get a premium product without having to pay a premium price? Most of us love a bargain, but we don’t want to sacrifice quality unnecessarily. Well, the good news is, when you choose concrete pavers, you’re getting the best of both worlds.

The look of stone at the price of concrete

For many people, stone pavers are the epitome of class, quality and elegance. And while they certainly create a lovely look, they come at a cost – and it’s a steep one. However, when you choose concrete pavers, you don’t have to sacrifice looks for price. Concrete pavers are far less expensive than other types of paver, particularly natural stone.

This is due to the fact that concrete can be created rather than mined like stone, and is made up of commonly used and widely found materials.

The really great thing about concrete pavers though, is that they are designed to replicate the look, aged appearance and surface textures of stone very closely. Even though they are completely crafted from concrete, they look much more like natural stone than concrete, as they mimic the characteristics of stone extremely well.

Most people won’t even be able to tell that your pavers are made of concrete and not stone. You can get the Gucci look at a Target price tag, and will be able to create a uniquely elegant and classy outdoor area on any kind of budget.

Similarly, brick pavers are also a popular choice of flooring material, but they can’t compete with concrete pavers in a number of areas – such as price, design options, colour options, size options and variety of possible laying patterns. Concrete pavers offer a far wider choice in size, shape, design and colour options, while brick pavers are usually found in one size, with limited colour, texture, design and style options and only a few possible laying patterns. While brick can create a timeless, classic look, brick pavers offer fewer design options and less versatility than concrete pavers – and at a greater cost.

Premium performance

As well, you don’t just get a great-looking paver when you choose concrete. You also get premium performance.

Sure, as a material, concrete doesn’t sound very interesting. There’s a reason it’s so widely used though – because it really performs. It’s tough, durable, long-lasting, easy to maintain

and can withstand high impacts, high volumes of traffic, harsh weather and direct sunlight without a problem. Plus, it’s resistant to stains from chemical substances and acids, and will only need a light clean to restore its good looks. It also offers great safety qualities, and is cooler to the touch in sunlight than most types of natural stone.

Concrete pavers pick up all these wonderful qualities, and wrap them up in an attractive and captivating package that looks just as good as it will perform. They are pleasant to walk on, easy to care for and will provide you with many years of happy use.

Added value

And to make it even better, concrete pavers not only look great and perform well, they will increase the value of your home. A paved outdoor area can increase your home value by up to 12.4%, and can return over 100% of the investment you’ve made in it when it comes time to sell your home. And your return on interest is even higher considering the cost effectiveness of concrete pavers.

They are far cheaper than most other paver types (such as stone, brick or clay) and thus give you the best possible return on investment. You’ll be able to benefit from your concrete pavers while you are currently using them, as well as when you sell them – a true win-win situation that‘s hard to beat.

What it comes down to, is that it IS possible to get premium performance at a budget price when you choose concrete pavers. They are without a doubt worth the money you’ll pay for them, and will reap dividends for years to come. This effective and versatile natural stone alternative is the ideal choice for your outdoor area, and will give it the stylish and characterful touch that it’s been waiting for.
