How Calling a Contractor Changed My Life

This might sound completely crazy, but the most important call I ever may was to a construction contractor. I can remember the day as if it were yesterday. I had decided to rebuild parts of my home. This involved removing part of the roof, knocking down a brick wall and removing some electrical wires and water pipes. I started out just fine but then I started to have problems. I realised I was in out of my depth and decided to call an expert. The contractor who came around was great and he quickly fixed up the mess I had made. Since that day, I have had a keen interested in construction contractors. I hope you like this blog.

Designs to Consider If You're Thinking About Pavement Patterns

In the modern world, a patch of pavement doesn't have to be smooth and boring. Instead, you can add excitement to the area with pattern pave which refers to pavement that has a pattern. There is a range of decorative options you can choose. Consider the following ideas:

Tile Effect

Whether you're designing a residential or commercial patio, you may want pattern pave that mimics the look of tile. To that end, you could opt for a number of consistent tiles that match each other perfectly or you could opt for different tiles.

For instance, you may like the look of a few small rectangular tiles oriented in a perpendicular pattern to large square tiles. Of course, none of it is actually ceramic tile. It's just a large concrete pad with lines etched into it and then acid stain added to create the look of different types of tile.

Cobblestone Look

Instead of rectangular tiles, you may want to go for a cobblestone effect. This makes it look like you have taken the painstaking effort to find rocks or bricks that fit perfectly together, and you have placed them one by one in your area. You can play with different colours from red to grey cobblestones and everything in between. If you opt for this look, you may want deeper grooves than if you go for a tiled effect. That helps to create a more realistic effect.

Textured Feel

You don't have to opt for pave pattern that is broken up into pieces. Instead, you may maintain the integrity of your concrete pad so that it all looks like a single piece, and you can ask the contractor to add in texture. The texture may take a number of different forms depending on your ultimate objective. For instance, it could mimic the appearance of marble or rough stone.

Brand or Logo Design

For commercial applications, you may want to opt for a pave pattern that integrates the logo or name of your company. With this option, you generally have the contractors put in a smooth block of pavement. Then, they use acid stain to imprint your logo or brand name onto the pavement.

You can even do variations of this for a residential patio. However, in these cases, you should opt for something like your family crest or a design that you really like such as a picture of a lion or a bear.
