Your patio is a beautiful statement piece, so when your patio pavers start to look old and damaged, it is probably time to think about getting them replaced. Though pavers are made to withstand a lot of wear and tear and last a long time, they don’t last forever. If you need to know when it’s time to replace your patio pavers, watch out for these three signs:
- Cracks and Chips- One of the first signs that your patio pavers need to be replaced is if you see visible cracks or big chips. Cracked pavers will allow water to seep underneath them, and when water builds up under your patio pavers, it can lead to even more damage. Also, if the weather is cold and the water under the pavers freezes, it will expand and make the cracks even worse.
- Old and Worn-Out Pavers- If your pavers are dull-looking, worn-out, stained, or discolored, the only thing you can do to restore your patio is replace the pavers.
- Uneven Patio and Holding Rain- Patios are built with a slight slope to them so that excess water will run off the stones and not linger. If you notice your patio is holding water, this is a sign your patio is uneven. An uneven patio can lead to worse issues like structural problems. If you notice your patio is uneven, you need to get it fixed as soon as possible before more problems arise.
