As a Central Florida homeowner, improving your outdoor space is one of the quickest ways to boost both your home's livability and curb appeal. Old, cracked, poured concrete surfaces –– whether they're on a driveway, a pool deck, or a patio –– make a home feel much older and more run-down. Rather than replacing these aging poured concrete slabs, homeowners should consider a natural stone solution that dramatically improves the appearance of a home: stone pavers.
For those looking for a durable, visually-appealing surface for their home, pavers are the best choice. Natural stone pavers have been used for centuries in both residential and commercial settings, and there are good reasons why they remain so popular. Here are our top ten reasons why Florida Pavers and Pergolas recommend pavers for your next home improvement project.

10 Benefits of Natural Stone Pavers
Beautiful and Unique
Easier to Replace and Install
Concrete Pavers are a Versatile Option
Driveway pavers, paver patios, pavers for a pool area –– there's virtually no place around a house that doesn't stand to benefit from the concrete pavers. This versatile natural stone brings aesthetic appeal to wherever it is installed, and can dramatically change an outdoor living space for the better.
Customizable Stone Pavers
No two paver installations are the same, which is largely due to the highly-customizable nature of pavers. This is a key reason why many homeowners are switching from concrete slabs to concrete pavers, and the combination of several types of paving material and shapes ensures that pavers can be customized to your heart's content.
More Durable Than Poured Concrete
In Central Florida especially, it is rare to see concrete driveways or patios without cracks up the middle of them. Tree roots running underneath a surface can cause a concrete slab to crack or split, whereas paver stones are far more durable. Should a paver stone break, however, replacing a single stone is far easier than replacing an entire slab.
Stone Pavers are Low-Maintenance
Unlike poured concrete, patio pavers are easy to clean –– and don't require hours of pressure washing to keep them sparkling clean. In fact, a simple rinse from the hose or doing some occasional sweeping is typically enough to remove most stains and keep paving stones looking their best.
Paver Stones are Slip-Resistant
Due to the unique texture of concrete pavers compared to the more smooth surface of cast-in-place concrete, paving stones are a great option for a pool deck and a patio area. Pavers are as practical as they are beautiful, keeping high-traffic areas safe.
Add Curb Appeal and Value to Your Home
Whether you're selling your home or just want to have to best-looking home on the block, your home's curb appeal is crucial. Installing paving stones in place of a concrete driveway or walkway quickly elevates the home's appearance –– and can pay off in spades when the time comes to put the home on the market.
Concrete's popularity largely stems from it being a more utilitarian material, but homeowners are quickly realizing that there is a better –– and more natural-looking –– option. Paving stones have a natural stone look, which is far less harsh against a natural backdrop than traditional concrete.
