Types of Cobblestone floors in the market
Considering of all of these aspects will make it easier to choose between the different materials that cobble stone is made of:
For example, clay pavers (the popular bricks) are made from a combination of clay and slate and are fired at high temperatures to make them extremely durable. These come in a wide variety of colors ranging from light to dark tones, and because their colors are natural, not made with a dye or pigment, you never have to worry about their tones fading. This material requires very little maintenance and only needs an occasional spray of water from a hose and perhaps a little bit of a mild detergent.
Stone pavers can be another alternative to consider for installation in a patio and other outdoor spaces. These have in a much more attractive appearance and a greater variety of colors, textures and sizes, although in some cases they may have a lower durability, since these kind of stones are not usually used for outdoor spaces or lot of vehicle traffic.
Concrete pavers are also durable and can be stained to a specific shade. These have the advantage of being easy to remove and reinstall; however, its maintenance costs may be a little higher, since its colors are less resistant to erosion and the passage of time, which requires extra work of sealing, repainting, and even a change for new material.
