If you are contemplating to pave your Patios in Oxford and Oxfordshire you can choose from the following 5.

1. Pea gravel paver

This type will go well with the Victorian, colonial, colonial revival and even contemporary homes. If you are attempting to create an English garden feel this is the material to go for. You will have difficulty with the installation as any beginner can do it well. It is made up of smooth and loose stones of earth tone and the material is mostly the size of a pea. Longevity is unlimited if it is cared for.

2. Poured or stamped concrete paver   

This will pair well with lone standing dwellings, contemporary, artistic, craftsman style, and minimal traditional homes. It will need installation by professionals and is the most sought after material by owners at all levels.   You can build a hard surface for your patio and it is the cheapest material available for patios. Use a contractor to install. Longevity is 10-20 years.

3. Brick paver

Life span of a brick patio is classified as 100 years and it is very suitable for all types of houses and patios. It is not difficult to install buy availing professional help will make it easier and efficient. Brick patters can be designed in many styles though they don’t have much color change. It is not as cost effective concrete but the longevity factor hugely compensates for that.

4. Concrete paver

This kind of pavers are engineered or manufactured and can be obtained in several shapes, colors and designs. It is much suited for traditional and contemporary homes and may last anywhere between 50 and100 years.  Unlike poured concrete the manufactures pavers can be removed and replaced easily. A single cracked brick can be easily replaced by another one without much labor or technique.

5. Stone paver

It is the costliest to install and also the longest in terms of lifespan. It is estimated that stone paved sidewalks and driveways will serve you for more than 100 years and are hugely suitable for Victorian mansions, colonial and colonial revival homes. Stones can be romantic when they are artistically deployed in your patio.  Bluestone, flagstone, limestone and slate are some of the materials that are used for this kind of pavements and they are undeniably exquisite and splendid looking.
