Pavers are a great solution for outdoor areas. Concrete pavers are hard-wearing, easy to install and they look great, improving the look of patios, paths and backyard entertaining areas.
Pavers come in different shapes, sizes, colours, styles and prices and it’s important to consider what paver will work best for your project because not all pavers are created equal. Adbri’s paving range includes grey pavers and black pavers, and in some of the ranges, white pavers as well as other neutral colours to suit your home. The most popular uses for pavers in home landscaping are;
Driveway pavers are typically small format pavers that are specially produced in a thicker size (at least 50mm) that make them safe for cars to drive on so they don’t crack and break. Larger pavers can be used for driveways only if they are adhered to a suitably prepared concrete base.
Garden paths and step stones are one of the best DIY projects and concrete pavers are an excellent choice for this paving job. Larger size square or rectangle concrete pavers create a comfortable stepper that make them the best paver for side paths and steppers.
Pool pavers are speciality products that are denser, and very hard wearing compared to other options. Euro® range pavers are the only suitable concrete pavers in the Adbri range for paving around pools because they are more resistant to salt and chlorine attack. This range also includes pool coping pavers, which is where a ‘bullnose’ type of finish is applied to the paver for the coping layer.
Patios / Entertaining Areas
Outdoor entertaining and alfresco dining areas are incredibly popular projects because it increases your homes living area. To be properly enjoyed, these projects require a solid base which concrete pavers are fantastic at providing. A good-looking square paver or a large rectangle paver is best for these projects.
Pavers and outdoor tiles can be used for similar projects and often, it is a matter of personal preference. The biggest difference between concrete pavers and tiles (or event natural stones) is the thickness, and therefore, the installation method that can be used.
Adbri Masonry concrete pavers are a minimum of 40mm thick meaning they can be laid onto a flexible base which is DIY friendly installation. Tiles and natural stone pavers are often under 20mm thick and are laid onto a concrete base, often meaning these products are not suitable for most intermediate level DIYer’s.
Salt and chlorine can damage standard concrete pavers. Euro® pavers achieve a P5 slip rating and are saline and salt resistant, ideal for use around pools.
Concrete pavers can be used for driveways, but you will need to select a paver that is rated for light commercial traffic, and make sure the base is suitable for this purpose. Generally this will be a small format paver or a brick paver, and it will be a minimum of 50mm thick.
Yes, as a result of the natural raw materials used in concrete masonry, some variation between products is to be expected, If you have concerns about the variations in your product, please contact us on 1300 365 565.
Salt (for example, from pools) can damage standard concrete pavers, which is why we recommend our Euro® range of pavers for around pools and in exposed coastal areas. Euro® pavers achieve a P5 slip rating and are saline and salt resistant.
Efflorescence is a naturally occurring by-product of the concrete masonry manufacturing process. Paved areas regularly exposed to a damp environment can prolong the chemical reaction that causes efflorescence, making the appearance of the efflorescence worse. Although efflorescence can never fully be avoided, there are some tips to help you minimise the likelihood of it affecting your project. Find tips on cleaning and maintaining your pavers.
