Concrete pavers are a popular paving choice because they are durable, easy to maintain, and come in just about every style and color imaginable. So, how do you choose the right pavers for your project? In this article, we will talk about how to identify the “right” paver for your project.
First things first. Are you planning on installing pavers yourself? If so, manufacturers sell concrete pavers from $2 to $10 per sq. ft.
If you are having them professionally installed, plan on an all-in cost from $15 to $39 per sq. ft. (properly installing pavers in Pennsylvania means laying them over 4-12” of crushed, compacted base stone, geotextile fabric and properly excavated and compacted subsoil).
Are you looking for the right quality concrete paver, but don’t have a budget for your project yet? Most pavers are fairly comparable when it comes to their quality. They are made out of pre-cast concrete and should have a minimum strength rating to 3000 PSI, but their cost varies according to the method of installation and whether or not they are deemed a utilitarian or a designer/luxury item.
