What Is A Paver And Bullnose Pool Overlay?

Pavers are a great way to make your outdoor living room extraordinary! There are many different features, such as walkways, patios, pool decks and driveways, that pavers can create in your front or backyards. It can be a bit overwhelming to determine the type of paver which is the perfect fit for your outdoor living space, that has so many different styles to choose from. Understanding the different features of each individual type of paver will help you make a decision and be satisfied  with the outcome for years to come!


The two types of manufactured pavers are standard concrete pavers and imaginative pavers. Standard concrete pavers are the most widely used paver for building a walkway, patio, or driveway. Standard concrete pavers are built to be extremely durable, giving you the impression that the test of time will be your walkway, patio, or driveway. Such pavers come in multiple designs, shapes, patterns, and tones to ensure each homeowner can complement their unique living space outdoors. Tumbled and untumbled in either a two-or three-piece combination are the two most common types of conventional concrete pavers. The tumbled pavers will give a more antique look to your outdoor space.


In order to give your outdoor living space a more rustic look, these pavers should appear time worn and rough, similar to a cobblestone or a Tuscan style. Non-tumbled pavers in fashion has a fresh and cleaner feel. They look more manufactured and give your outdoor living space a more modern appearance. The most common pattern is called the "I" pattern for a two-piece blend.The random three-piece blend is the most common for a three-piece blend, where three different paver sizes are randomly laid across your desired patio. Although traditional concrete pavers have historically been made at a standard thickness, traditional concrete pavers also have a thinner choice to have a thin overlay when extending a patio or remodeling a pool deck.


If you are considering extending your existing patio to create a larger living space outdoors, then thin overlay pavers are the way to go. Thin overlay landscape pavers can be laid directly over existing concrete patio, so you don't have to worry about the cost and trouble of removing all current concrete. Such overlay pavers are also extremely popular with those who want to reshape the crumbling and peeling decks of the pool. A great way to enhance the existing outdoor living area is to use these thin overlay pavers for patios and pool decks. It will also make the total room appear larger as it is all one kind of product across the whole patio or pool deck.
