What Are Thin Pavers?

However, there are many differences indeed. For starters, thin pavers are thin enough to be applied to the surface of existing concrete without adding a substantial amount of bulk. It’s true that pavers come in a variety of thicknesses, but they’re still much thinner than brick or stone. As well, thin pavers costs less money than any of the other types of materials used to achieve a similar look.

This is what makes concrete thin pavers ideal for outdoor remodeling.

If it isn’t, then it must first be made so.
