Paver Considerations

It’s time to consider what you want in a paver. Remember, this is an important and crucial decision. What are the basic qualities you want in a paver? Of course you want the material to be durable and long lasting. The material should also match up with your climate. Does the paver you’ve picked fit with Tucson weather conditions? Will it be able to stand up to the heat, in no uncertain terms? These are questions that you’ll need to ask yourself if you want to find the perfect paver.

Travertine and Brick Pavers

Travertine and brick are two top paver choices here in Tucson, AZ. Which do you think will suit your property the best? Let’s break it down a little bit. For many people, budget is the deciding factor with hardscaping renovations. If this is the case then brick pavers are a solid option. Brick is twenty to forty percent cheaper than travertine on average. This is if you’re getting fancy travertine, however. Commercial grade travertine does not have such a disparagement in price, but brick is overall the cheaper option.

What about texture? Texture is an important paver quality to consider. Think about the hardscaping of a pool surround. A smooth, slippery paver would be a terrible and dangerous choice in this application. However, a more rough textured paver would be perfectly suitable. Travertine is found often as a smooth, shiny stone, but there and ‘tumbled’ varieties that are safe for use near the pool. How pavers feel under your feet matters. Travertine is known for having a ‘a cool foot feeling’ that owners appreciate. It’s hot out here in Tucson!

A Word On Paver Colors

As far as color variation is concerned, travertine is the paver of choice. Some people like a pop of color, but others appreciate consistency. In this case a brick paver would do just nicely. Brick doesn’t have much variance of color… it really is all different shades of brownish red. If this is what you’re looking for, go for it! All natural stone is different because they are naturally quarried – these stones don’t come in ‘sets’. Natural stone paver installation Tucson costs more because there is a lot of labor involved with making consistent creations out of many unique natural pieces.
