Purchasing paving stones is a valuable investment, as their longevity greatly surpasses conventional concrete installations. Presently, an extensive array of options is at your disposal, enabling seamless integration that truly enhances your home by expanding your outdoor living space. Additionally, when compared to concrete patios and walkways, paving stones take the lead in increasing your home’s value. This distinction stems from their ability to withstand Calgary’s variable freeze-thaw Chinook climate, as opposed to concrete, which is more susceptible to cracking. This translates to increased returns on your investment and a significant boost in both your home’s curb appeal and overall value.
Manufacturers have developed some remarkable products over the last decade to help enhance the landscaping services provided by contractors; the two main suppliers being Barkman Concrete and Expocrete – what we call the Coca-Cola and Pepsi of hardscaping in Calgary – and it often just comes down to a client’s preference between the two. Large stones or “architectural slabs,” as they are referred to, have also gained some strong popularity for larger residential landscaping in Calgary – but tend to look best on estate homes or acreage properties. Here at Tazscapes, we can assist with all-sized patio stone installation projects.
Selecting the appropriate landscape installer in Calgary is crucial to ensure you receive the most efficient paving stone installation process. The company you choose must follow proper residential landscaping protocols when it comes to excavation, base preparation with aggregate and sand, compaction, grading and finally, the installation of actual stones. There is also a detailed process that needs to take place so the patio paving stones, walkway and/or driveway stones you are hoping to utilize can last for years without any sinking or shifting. At Tazscapes Inc., you can rest assured that our experienced professionals will get the job done right the first time.
At Tazscapes Inc., we ensure all landscaping services we provide for patios, walkways, and driveways are followed through a detailed process, whether part of a project (like merging it with concrete curbing) or by itself. Our expertise in paving stone installation is what separates us from the rest. From excavation down to clay to brushing in the polymeric sand after the stones have been installed, we take pride in our paving stone projects.
A long list of pavers can be used for your project, depending on the style and maintenance you want for it. Common examples include, concrete and natural stones, such as granite, slate, limestone and travertine.
Interlocking pavers provide you with plenty of valuable benefits. They are durable and strong, can withstand heavy loads, and have prolonged exposure to changing weather. They are also decorative and versatile, meaning they can be designed around your landscape’s unique design or style.
Efflorescence is a water-soluble residue (mainly salt) that is left in the stone, which over time, migrates to the stone’s surface, where it forms a whitish coating. You can get rid of it by applying special acid cleaning solutions over it. We can provide you with some information once we install your pavers.
