Do You Really Need to Maintain Your Paver Patio?

So you’ve spent thousands of dollars on a brand-new paver patio. A contractor has dug up your backyard, laid down paving slabs, and everything looks great. That’s the end of it, right? Not really. You’ll need to maintain your patio over time. Here are some reasons why.

Improve the Appearance of Your Patio

Dirt, debris, and other nasty stuff can all affect the aesthetic appeal of your paver patio over time, especially if pavers have stains or discoloration. That’s why it’s a good idea to clean your patio every few months. Doing so will create a more welcoming space when guests visit your property.

Prevent Weed Growth

The gaps between paving stones provide weeds with the right conditions to grow, which can damage your patio. For example, weed growth can crack your pavers and even cause them to shift, resulting in an uneven surface. That can be a huge safety hazard. But don’t fear! A good weed killer can fix this issue and leave your outdoor space looking fantastic again.

Save Money on Repairs

All paver patios can suffer from wear and tear over the years. However, identifying problems before they get worse will prevent costly repairs. By carrying out regular inspections of your patio, you can increase its lifespan and stop it from deteriorating. For example, you can look at the edges of your patio to see if paving stones are positioned correctly and gently tap them back into place with a mallet or hammer.

Increase Property Value

By maintaining your paver patio, you can add value to your home and make it easier to sell your property if you put it on the market. Pavers free from cracks and discoloration can increase curb appeal and create a positive impression on buyers who visit your home.

Takeaway

You should maintain your patio to improve its appearance, prevent damage, and get more out of your investment. Otherwise, you could decrease your patio’s lifespan and have to spend money on repairs. Remember, high-quality pavers can be easier to clean and care for, so think about this when upgrading your patio in the future.

As a small business wonder myself, it was great to see Keegan with Mountain Strong Landscaping eager and willing to earn your business! He was flexible with my time frame, had great communication, provided ideas and worked well with his employees to get the job done! Keegan had posted on social media a patio that caught my attention. I screenshot it and looked at it often. As I am not a very good visualizer, it impressed me how this patio work I saw of his seemed to be the perfect fit for my home. It has since came to life, and I couldn’t be happier! It is Winter, so I have yet to enjoy the patio full affect - but I can’t wait! If you are looking for hardscaping - Keegan is your man!

When I first contacted Keegan about a job I wanted done, he was very specific and professional - his work didn't disappoint. Hardscaping is what he does and he's an expert. You've seen the photos on the Facebook page and it is all that and more. I can't express how much I appreciate his working with us to come up with the ideal plan and he completed it to the tee!

They were very professional and I like their quality of work. They did a great job and stayed on. Task would recommend them for other projects. At my home as well as with friends and family, if they live close enough to have them work on their stuff too.

From start to finish, Mountain Strong Landscaping was amazing to work with and we couldn’t be happier with the end result. During the initial consultations, Keegan was open and honest on what would work for our space and helped us design a patio that fit our vision and budget. He clearly takes great pride in his work and is very well organized with all equipment and materials arriving with perfect timing. Communication was terrific all the way through. We love our new backyard living space and highly recommend Mountain Strong!

Keegan was a pro from start to finish. From our initial consult he was quick to provide a high quality rendering of his ideas for our patio and brought samples of pavers in person so we could rest assured in our decisions. He started work within the time frame he estimated, and finished in about the same timeframe. He stayed in constant communication with us throughout the job. The end result is fabulous. He even upgraded us to sod around the patio rather than grass seed to ensure we could enjoy a fully completed look immediately. We also were able to add a small matching space in front of our home that has been a great place to sit and wait for our children to return from school. Knowing that this space is built to last, we know we made the right investment choice by choosing Mountain Strong to install our patio. The space we now have allows us to spend more time outside with our family, gives us a cozy place to enjoy calm morning sunrises, and brings us so much enjoyment!

We can't rave enough about our experience with Mountain Strong Landscaping. We needed our patio and walkway re-sanded and sealed and some repair work done to it. Keegan came out, talked to us about our options for the repair work, drafted a contract and gave us an estimated time frame to complete the work. They ended up being able to complete the work earlier than anticipated and Keegan was communicative through the entire process. The work was done beautifully and the price was fair and in line with the expertise that Mountain Strong brought to the table. I will recommend Mountain Strong to anyone I meet that is looking for hardscaping work.
