The Benefits of Using Bluestone Pavers

 

Not only does Trenton Block provide gardening supplies and masonry tools, but we are a Bluestone supplier.

Pavers are excellent when it comes to giving your home more curb appeal. Pavers are also durable because they can endure the weight of any vehicle. They are also versatile because they come in a multitude of colors and materials. Not only does Trenton Block provide gardening supplies and masonry tools, but we are a Bluestone supplier. Bluestone is a bluish-gray natural stone comprised of sand and quartz that is ideal for both residential and commercial sites. Keep reading to learn all about why Bluestone pavers are beneficial!

The Sealing Process

Unlike other natural stones, Bluestone can have a high-gloss effect when sealed. Bluestone can hold a lot of water, but over time, if you don’t seal the material, it can lose its aesthetics due to bluestone being porous. Make sure to use a sealant made for porous stone. Once sealed, you’ll notice automatically notice the depth and shine as your bluestone becomes brand new looking again!

 

Sealing protects your paver from heavy foot traffic, chlorine, and salt from pool areas which can degrade the material, dirt, debris from gardens, and scratches. Sealing your bluestone pavers is such a low-maintenance process. It doesn’t require much more to keep your pavers looking fresh and new.

Safety

Because Bluestone is a rough surface, you won’t have to worry about trips and falls. Its texture makes it ideal for pool areas because you won’t have to worry about slipping and sliding all over the place. Even using a high-gloss sealer won’t cause the surface to become slippery. Natural cleft bluestone pavers are the most ideal for pool areas.

Functionality

While best suited for outdoors, you can even incorporate Bluestone pavers into your home. Some homeowners have used bluestone by their patio door to separate the entryways and exits of their home. However, typical applications of bluestones are for garden pathways, walkways, driveways, sidewalks, and features of your backyard
