Different Types of Pavers

No matter what type of project you are planning that involves pavers, from a simple job, laying pavers to create a patio area, or a more complex project like paving around your pool and spa, there are many types of pavers to choose from, many of which are better for certain applications than others. Pavers differ in price as well. We suggest utilizing one of CalFinder’s approved contractors for a paving job that is guaranteed to be trouble free.

Brick Pavers

A manufactured product, brick pavers are made with cement, sand, fine aggregates and water, which is mixed together and fired in a kiln at high temperatures to produce the finished product. Known to last a lifetime, brick pavers are highly versatile, durable and strong.

Concrete Pavers

The myriad benefits of concrete pavers include their unlimited styles, colors and designs, low maintenance, durability, safety, strength, versatility, adaptability to all weather conditions, flexible integrity, and ease of installation and repair. Interlocking concrete pavers offer flexibility, moving in unison with the earth below them, thus avoiding serious damage.

Stone Pavers

Naturally occurring stone pavers are mined from quarries, or collected from a rock outcrop. Because they are not manufactured, as concrete and brick pavers are, stone pavers have different qualities than concrete and brick and are often more expensive than their manufactured cousins. But, they are still the most popular choice for all external paving needs.

Interlocking Pavers

By definition, interlocking pavers connect in such a way that each of them keeps the others from moving around. Most commonly made with cement or concrete, this type of paver is the easiest to install because they don’t require mortar. They practically install themselves. Using sand as a base and to join together, interlocking pavers cover any patio, decking, driveway or walkway.
