Springtime Paving Stone Issues

There are numerous environmental advantages of having a paving stone driveway or patio as opposed to concrete or asphalt, but being environmentally friendly doesn’t mean you have to tolerate everything nature produces, especially when it affects the beauty and function of your pavers.
It’s well into spring in the tri-state area, everything is blooming, and we have definitely waited long enough for some nice weather with the horrible winter we endured. Though pavers that have been installed appropriately won’t be threatened by weeds easily, there is a still a chance that problems can crop up- no pun intended.
The first step to any paving stone project that keeps its integrity in the long term is purchasing the right products. The experts at Island Block & Masonry Supply will work with you to determine the appropriate products for your outdoor remodeling project, increasing the likelihood that your new project will last long term and won’t be susceptible to damage from weed growth and other issues, such as the harsh winter weather that we often experience in the tri state area.
Here are a few steps to prevent any damage to your paver driveway, patio, pathway or other paving stone project:

Paving Stone Project Considerations

An asphalt or concrete driveway may serve its purpose, but it usually doesn’t look so pretty or add any value to your home. Residents of the tri-state especially have to consider how rough winter weather will affect their outdoor projects.
In time, concrete can crack and show major signs of wear and tear. It’s not only cracking you have to worry about with concrete, but also stains from oils and other chemicals it may be exposed to since many people park their car in the driveway, or if they have a garage, at least their guests do. As for asphalt, there’s maintenance involved: every few years you would have to have it resealed, and for asphalt driveways you’re looking at an average lifespan of approximately 10 years less than concrete.
But what about pavers? Paving stones have the longest lifespan of the three materials and require the least maintenance, in addition to being more visibly appealing than the other two.
One of the most appealing parts of choosing to have a paver driveway installed is that it is totally customizable. Take advantage of all the benefits that come along with choosing paving stones for your driveway, walkways, patio, garden border, retaining wall or other project by picking out the right color, shape and size combinations that fit your style and project best.
We have a few tips for you that will help guide you through the process of picking out products for your outdoor remodeling project, whether it be a driveway or pool coping.
When trying to determine which products here at Island Block and Masonry Supply best fit the needs of your project, consider the area for your chosen project:
How big is the space?
What is the shape- is a circular area or a rectangular spot?
As a general rule, smaller individual pavers work better in smaller spaces like a little nook or narrow garden pathway for instance.
Larger pavers are better for a bigger area, like a patio or driveway.
If you want your project to showcase your unique sense of style, try a pattern consisting of various paver sizes.
Have a question about your outdoor paving stone projects? We’re here to help anyone in the tri-state area! Give us a call at 631-443-4521, contact us via this online form or visit our Long Island, NY location.

Winter Weather Paving Stone Care for the Tri-State Area

If you reside in the Northeast anywhere in the tri-state area you were likely slammed with at least several inches (or feet) of snow this past week thanks to winter storm Juno. The experts here at Island Block & Masonry Supply on Long Island, New York receive a lot of questions on the maintenance required to properly care for their paver driveways, pathways and patios during the nasty winter weather.
If you make the investment to have hardscaping of some type installed on your property, it only makes sense that you would be concerned about protecting that investment.
Here are some paver driveway care tips for surviving winter in the tri-state area.
We offer Cambridge paving stones at Island Block & Masonry Supply, and if you have purchased any of Cambridge’s stellar products, you likely know that Cambridge pavers are made with ArmorTec. This provides a sealant of sorts that protects Cambridge pavers from the inside out rather than simply coating the exterior. This means Cambridge pavers won’t absorb any water, which makes them resistant to weather damage and normal wear-and-tear.
ArmorTec’s durability is unmatched- you will see no damage from salting and plowing, which is crucial for those who live in the tri-state area because the harsh winters and frequent snowfall make salting and plowing a necessary evil during the colder months.
It’s for this reason that pavers are “better” than concrete. The smooth surface of poured concrete make may snow removal seem easy, but cracking and overall deterioration will likely develop over time due to the freeze/thaw conditions and the repeated use of de-icing salts.
Concrete and asphalt can develop cracks and hollow areas, and the repairs aren’t cheap. The damage causes the surface to have uneven spots, which poses a safety risk for everyone who walks on the driveway. Pavers- individual concrete bricks- are denser, which makes them much more durable than concrete slabs. Concrete has no flex, or give, which makes it more likely to crack due to changes in the weather. As the freezing winter turns into spring, pavers will flex with the freeze and thaw, allowing the driveway to “give” in order to recover from the freeze.
Have a question about caring for your paving stone driveway in the winter? Give us a call at 631-443-4521, contact us via this online form or visit our Long Island, NY showroom.

Borders and Hardscape Lighting Options

In our most recent blog we discussed the benefits of paving stone driveways (and other projects), especially for homes in the tri-state area, which are subjected to harsh winters, flooding and other weather woes. One such advantage being the affordability, long lifespan compared to concrete and asphalt, and the minimal maintenance required.
We’ll continue to build on the theme of the last blog: Tips to help you decide which products fit your project needs best, as well as some fun addition to seemingly standard outdoor remodeling to make your home stand out- adding curb appeal and a fun flair to your property.
Add a border
A paving stone driveway, patio or other project is beautiful in and of itself, especially with Cambridge’s fade-proof colors- the other product lines we carry also come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes, with kits and other fun additions available.
Borders allow you to customize and personalize your projects by choosing different color pavers, or different size or shape pavers, to outline the outer edge of your patio or driveway. This allows you to customize the shape of your project- creating a square, circle or curbed pattern.
Fire pits look amazing with a circular border consisting of different colored stones than on the “interior” side of the project.
Accent on lights!
A “sunken” hangout spot made of pavers with seating and a firepit in the middle is an awesome addition to any outdoor area, but adding landscape lighting  takes your project up a notch and adds a magical element to your yard in the night.
We offer hardscape lighting options, including AC-powered models that work beautifully with any project that uses Cambridge pavingstones or wallstones, like an outdoor living room. We also have Cambridge Solar Lights for pavers.
Let the experts at Island Block and Masonry Supply work with you to determine what type of projects work with your property, guide you through the process of picking out products and help you with all of your paving stone and masonry needs. We’re here to help anyone in the tri-state area! Give us a call at 631-443-4521, contact us via this online form or visit our Long Island, NY location.

In our previous two blogs, we featured information on some beautiful and functional Cambridge products we carry at our Long Island location, which is convenient to the entire tri-state area. Cambridge Cast Stone lends natural-looking hardscaping to any outdoor project, while waterfall & Fountain Kits from Cambridge provide high-end features that are actually affordable.
We also have Cambridge Pre-Packaged Patio Pub & Bistro Table Kits in our showroom. There are two styles: Olde English Wall and MaytRx Wall. What makes this product so classy is the polished granite top- available in black or Venetian Gold. It’s a great size for serving appetizers and drinks or a full out dinner, while also being small enough so as to not take up a lot of your precious outdoor space. It’s 48″ x 48″ top with a 2″ diameter hole pre-drilled for an umbrella (not included), and it seats up to right people.
The Olde English pedestal wall comes complete with one pallet of Olde English Wallstones to build a 20″ x 20″ single pedestal for a 42″ high table. The MaytRx Wall comes with one pallet of MaytRx Column Wallstones to build a 22″ x 22″ single pedestal for a 42″ high table.
Still not convinced it’s a worth-while addition? Both table packages come completely ready to install, with no cutting necessary and minimum assembly.

Cambridge Cast Stone: Natural-Looking, Affordable Hardscaping

Pavers, or paving stones, give residential and commercial property owners throughout the tri-state area the ability to give their outdoor space a much more organic feel than poured concrete or wood decks are able to provide. Cast stone by Cambridge features colors and textures that resemble natural stone you would find in nature, and the products we offer here at Island Block & Masonry Supply give you the power to take your property from “nice” to stunningly gorgeous in just a few simple steps.
Cast Stone Stairs, Treads, Stepping Stones and other Cambridge products, such as retaining wallstone systems and permeable pavement systems are an affordable substitute for natural bluestone, granite and other natural stone materials. Cambridge cast stones are offered in a choice of colors inspired by their natural counterparts, and there’s a variety of options that coordinate with the styles and colors of other Cambridge pavingstone products.
Cambridge Cast Stone Stepping Stones, Step Set and Column Caps
There are few inexpensive outdoor features more functional and whimsical than stepping stones for your backyard, garden or other area. Cambridge stepping stones have the look and feel of completely natural stepping stone pathways, allowing you to decorate your outdoor space and/or provide a stone pathway over grass, pebbles or mulch that makes it easier for you (your guests and pets!) to navigate your property. These are available in chestnut, bluestone and boulder blend.
Cambridge’s four-piece step set would blend into the scenery perfectly on a trail hike anywhere in the tri-state area of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, and it will look just as natural in your outdoor space. Also available in bluestone, chestnut and boulder blend, this set is inspired by cliff outcrops, hillsides, mountain ridges, river banks and other bedrock formations. Each of the four pieces is unique, with distinctive characteristics that will help you form a natural set of stairs leading to your garden, sunken gathering area or other part of your outdoor oasis.
Cast-stone caps and stairs are ready to install and available individually or in a 4-step kit. The caps come in three styles (two sizes) that will help complete your Cambridge Wallstone and columns project.
