Driveway Pavers Boca Raton Homes


We hear so much about the recession these days but despite this fact, many people are continuing to improve their homes with new driveways, walkways, pool decks, patios, etc. Homeowners are either improving new homes they recently purchased or deciding to improve the home they are trying to sell. Many have just decided to stay in their home and make their back yard a special paradise. Milano Pavers came highly recommended as an authority in the area. They explained each aspect of their business.

Revitalizing your driveway and or pool deck is a quick and easy way to transform your home. There are many homes in Boca Raton that utilize professional pavers to design their front patio, driveway, pool and backyard. Homes in Boca Raton are not the only place you can find professional pavers installed to create impressive driveways. I took a look at pavers, driveways, and pool decks in Aventura, Boca Del Mar, Cooper City, Davie, Deerfield Beach, Delray Beach, Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, West Palm Beach, Pinecrest, Golden Beach, Wilton Manors, and Wellington. The landscape is enchanced by a simple paver layout.

There are many things to consider before you start a Paver project. The most important is to be sure you are working with a licensed and insured company that has been in business for many years. You should visit their place of business to be sure that they are where they say, get referrals from them, and look at pictures of work they have completed. You also want to work with someone who is experienced in all different types of materials so that you can choose what would work right for you.

When choosing materials it is important to know that there are so many different options. It is important to work with someone that will be able to help you choose what would work best for your home regardless of it being located in Aventura, Boca Raton, Boca Del Mar, Cooper City, Davie, Deerfield Beach, Delray Beach, Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, West Palm Beach, Pinecrest, Golden Beach, Wilton Manors, and Wellington. A professional can help you choose what color would enhance the color of your home and your roof, as you would never want these to clash. Colors that you pick should harmonize with the area. The color should not compete for attention with the color of your house. Usually choosing a color that is a few shades lighter than the color of your house can work, and the pavers should blend with the color of your roof.

There are many different shapes, sizes, colors and patterns from which to choose. The area of space you are working with will be important when picking your size and pattern. It is always a good idea to look at as many pictures as you can of different jobs. To look at these jobs in person is the best way for true color selection. It will give you a much better idea of how the pattern looks with the color and shapes.

People are becoming very creative with their backyards today. Installing new pool decking (where marble seems to be the most popular at this time) is just a start. The addition of waterfalls, special lighting effects and retaining walls are also popular remodeling projects. Homeowners are also installing patios with a fire pit along with freestanding seat walls around the perimeter to accommodate their friends and family. Homeowners that have decided to stay in their homes, and make their own paradise in the yards, have many different options.

Here are a few tips about how to lay pavers...

The pattern you use to lay the pavers, such as diagonal or in rows can create illusions such as widening a narrow space. Wide spaces can look narrower by running rectangular pavers the length of an area. When selecting Pavers, you should also consider the thickness for potential use. Using heavy Pavers, 2 3/8” for driveways, is preferable whereas you can use a 1” Paver for walkways and pool decks.

Clay Pavers

Brick pavers, or genuine clay paving bricks, have a timeless appeal that imparts an image of classic elegance to homes of any style -- from traditional to ultra-modern. In fact, many of the finest homes in America are graced with courtyards, terraces, garden paths and drives paved with brick. For those looking for sturdy, long lasting, quality pavers, Clay pavers may be just the solution. Clay pavers are only available in a brick shape but come in both 2" and 1" thicknesses, making them ideal for both driveway and patio applications. Clay pavers come in varying shades- from terra cotta to gold- as well as varying smooth and rough finishes. A wide variety of clay pavers are available, from ones that are made right here in Florida to Genuine Old Chicago clay pavers, as well as hand made pavers imported from Columbia. Clay pavers can be a nice alternative to concrete pavers for those looking for a more rustic feel to their outdoor area

Marble Pavers

This is the product for those searching for that one of a kind, natural look. Natural Stone Pavers are an elegant line of stone pavers that are the perfect finishing touch to any landscape. From walkways to pools, from patios to driveways, these pavers are a durable material from the walkways of old Europe Imported from traditional European marble quarries, the stones come in a variety of finishes that feature the characteristics unique to marble. Classic Stone Pavers are not only beautiful but are also durable. Bullnosed coping is also available in marble. In many cases they can be installed directly over top of the proposed surface. Because marble is a completely natural product, every piece is unique, each displaying its own color, shade, texture and veining. If an exceptionally distinctive look is what you are going for than this is the product for you.

Concrete Pavers

Finally! A solution to poured concrete, asphalt and Chattahoochee - the concrete Paver. This product is ideal for all outdoor settings from driveways and walkways to patios and pool decks. Because pavers are set in sand and are able to shift with earth movement and climate changes, the cracking usually associated with other surfaces is eliminated. Pavers are made of compacted concrete. They are interlocking, versatile, and come in many sizes, colors, shapes and patterns.

Advantages of Pavers and Natural Stones

Pavers and Natural Stones can be replaced if they should be become stained. Using concrete or asphalt will always leave you with an ugly patchwork mess unless you replace the entire surface. Pavers will not crack and they carry a long manufacturer and installation warranty.

Installing Concrete Pavers, Marble, Clay Brick, Coral or Man Made Stones - just to name a few - will increase your property value tremendously giving your home that special curb appeal. Pavers are an affordable luxury as they add a touch of elegance to any home at a fraction of the cost of flagstone or marble.

Real estate Agents confirm that a Paver (Marble or Brick) driveway adds more value to a home than concrete or asphalt. The same holds true for your pool deck, patio, or walkways. Take a look at these before and after photos and you'll agree.

Milano Pavers can service the needs of customers in Aventura, Boca Raton, Boca Del Mar, Cooper City, Davie, Deerfield Beach, Delray Beach, Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, West Palm Beach, Pinecrest, Golden Beach, Wilton Manors, Wellington, and the surrounding areas.
