There is a variety of pavement choices including bricks, tiles, stones, concrete, and many more. Each choice has it’s pros and cons. Find out which patio paving material will be the best choice for you:


Bricks come in many different finishes, colors, and sizes. They can be placed to create a pattern or create a classic historic look by installing the same brick throughout your patio. Bricks are a durable option, but can also be costly because it must be placed by hand which makes installation time longer. Bricks are also prone to freeze thaw deterioration.



Concrete and stamped concrete are popular options because it is low maintenance, durable, and low in cost. Concrete can be stamped or textured and comes in a variety of colors. Concrete is poured into place and is slip resistant. While concrete is an affordable option, it creates a sterile commercial look and lacks an inviting environment.
