An important first step for both residential and commercial projects, pavers express individual style while also providing a major design feature that sets the stage for the overall look and feel of the space. An extremely customizable landscaping surface, pavers are used to upgrade patios, entryways, plazas, roof decks that can help integrate a design or style that will not only look great, but longevity of pavers is a renowned trait, and requires only minimal maintenance season after season. There are a wide variety of pavers available that are both durable as well as visually appealing. During the design process you will be able to consider such materials as; concrete, brick, slate, granite, porcelain, travertine, wood tiles, and rubber athletic and play tiles, New manufacturing techniques used for architectural pavers are creating quality alternatives from aggregate mixes and recycled glass that provide durable, chip and crack resistant options. Outdoor flooring considerations include finishes, such as: natural, textured, polished, as well as slip and salt water resistant. Available in a wide range of sizes and colors, a light colored roof tile is engineered to have a higher reflective value and low emissivity rate to help reduce the heat island effect, which contributes to global warming. In New York, where so many private gardens are on rooftops and terraces, pedestal systems are installed which elevates the pavers so that water runoff, irrigation and electrical conduits can pass seamlessly underneath. These adjustable systems are both durable and attractive. They allow for easy access and serviceability for repairs or standard maintenance procedures and to the utilities below.
