Times are tough for everyone, and in an effort to spruce up and add value to their residence, many home owners have installed an interlocking patio as an alternative to other patio construction materials like concrete, wood, or composite surfacing.
At ME Landscaping, we’ve installed hundreds of interlocking patios for customers all across the Greater Toronto Area, and we’re committed to quality, value, and customer service. There are two steps to having the interlocking patio of your dreams installed: Select a reputable company with expertise and the best trained staff; and choose the right pavers, which are available in hundreds of colours, shapes and sizes, and finishes to meet any style or budget.
For decades, the default material of choice for a patio or other hard surface area has been concrete because of its low cost and ease of installation. But as many homeowners can tell you, concrete isn’t indestructible. It can crack due to the change in weather, particularly freeze-thaw cycles, damage from chemicals, poor installation, or even pressure and weights it wasn’t designed to handle. This can result in broken sections that can only be repaired by starting from scratch. This can be prohibitively costly for some customers, making an interlocking patio a better option for many reasons.
What are the advantages of using pavers for an interlocking patio?
- An interlocking patio has lower repair costs, relative to concrete. If a concrete patio is cracked, entire sections may have to be dug up and replaced; but if an individual paver is damaged, all you have to do is remove it and put a new one in its place. If you’re worried about ongoing maintenance or even replacement expense, pavers offer a low-cost option to other patio materials that can last for decades with the proper care.
- Pavers are naturally low maintenance. See a weed? Pull it out; if you can’t get to the root, carefully pry the paver lose, remove the weed, spray weed killer into the hole in the ground where the roots may be hiding, and put the paver back. For the most part, pavers naturally prevent the growth of weeds and are easy to clean.
- An interlocking patio is highly durable. At ME Landscaping, we work hard to make sure paver patios do not chip, crack, flake, expand or shrink, and are extremely flexible under brutal weather conditions, especially in the Greater Toronto Area with its regular freezing-thaw cycles. Thanks to their density, pavers are very strong and can withstand pressure of heavy loads from vehicles and other items placed on them.
- They are aesthetically appealing. At ME Landscaping, our expert designers can help you select the right pavers to match existing landscaping or other home features.
An interlocking patio offers distinct advantages over other kinds of patios, but the key to having one successfully installed is working with a company you can trust and has years of experience with this kind of work.
