Pool pavers are a great way to make your pool area look luxurious and unique. They are a great option not only due to their durability and slip-resistance, but because they have a natural-stone look and will not wear when exposed to salt or chlorine. Certain types of pavers also resist the growth of algae and mildew, which make them ideal for wet environments. However, even with all the upsides, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the options.
So how do you know which pool paver is best for you, your family and your home? We suggest conducting some research or better yet, consult a professional so that the pool paver you choose is not only functional, but also vibes with the atmosphere of your backyard oasis.
Here three types of pool pavers you may want to consider:
Brick pavers give your pool area a more traditional look and are available in mostly orangey and other earthy shades. They are not affected by chlorine, salt water or the sun (especially if sealed) and are also a no-slip option. However, they are available in only available in square and rectangular shapes unlike concrete and stone pavers, which offer more variety.
Concrete pavers have a smooth finish and are available in a wide variety of colors, shapes and sizes.
While some pavers require a sealant to be salt-, slip- and chlorine-resistant, concrete pavers do not need this, which makes them a very versatile and affordable option.
Stone pavers are the most unique choice since they made from quarried materials that are formed in sea beds, riverbeds and the Earth’s core. They have a rougher, more natural texture than brick or concrete and can be found in an array of eye-catching colors and shapes. Keep in mind, stone pavers must be sealed to ensure they are slip-, salt- and chlorine resistant. If this step is neglected, this paver will suffer ill effects from the harsh sun and pool water.
