New Ice Melt for Concrete Pavers

Best Ice Melt For Concrete

Concrete pavers are commonly used as outdoor flooring. Pavers are used for roads, driveways, and walkways, as well as patios and outdoor entertaining areas in the home.  Concrete pavers are typically made in factories. First, a mixture of concrete is poured into a mold. The mold can be of any shape and size, often squares or rectangles are used. This mixture is left to set. Once the mixture is set, a standard concrete foundation is poured. A layer of sand is spread on top and the pavers are layered in the desired pattern. No adhesive is used in the setting of concrete pavers, the weight of the pavers themselves acts as the retaining method (apart from the edges). It is possible to set pavers in sand, compacted gravel mortar, or a concrete foundation.

Types of Concrete Pavers

There are two types of concrete pavers; interlocking pavers and architectural slabs. Interlocking pavers were invented by the Dutch and are extremely durable and suitable for all uses. To many though, interlocking pavers lack the natural look. For those looking for a more aesthetically pleasing alternative, architectural slabs may impersonate the look of brick or natural stone, but they are thin and may not be suitable for high traffic areas, such as driveways.
