Paving stones are an attractive and practical addition to your home. Paving stones have natural beauty, are many times stronger, and more durable than poured concrete. Paving stones can withstand more than 10,000 psi, while typical poured concrete endures 4,000 psi. Paving stones come in many shapes and sizes, they are easy to replace or repair, and they are crack resistant (unlike concrete). The most outstanding asset, however, is the ability to withstand all types of conditions. Paving stones are made to last, despite rain, snow, rock salt, and heat.
There are many styles, colors, and patterns to choose from. The cost of the project will vary greatly depending on the actual stone and paving pattern you select. Generally, the material cost for the paving stones will start at $3 per square foot and can be as much as $12 per square foot. Local landscape supply yards such as Park West Supply on Aten Road, have outdoor display yards for viewing many of the materials that are available to purchase in the Pittsburgh area.
A new paving stone patio, brick paver patio, or paver walkway will greatly improve the appearance and value of your home landscaping. With all of the available styles and colors to choose from, the patio design possibilities are endless and there is a product to fit everyone’s budget and personal taste. Choosing the correct product and pattern is where the expertise of an experienced patio designer becomes invaluable.
