Does anyone regret using concrete pavers

for their pool decks? If so, why?

Also, would you mind sharing the price per sq you paid for your pavers?

Hi again, we just had our pavers laid this week - they look great! we chose techo bloc blu and paid $16 psf for most and $15 psf for some that we added on. I think you can probably get a better price - I've heard rumors that some will do it for the same cost as poured concrete. You might want to confirm with your pool builder that they can lay the jump rock on a paver - ours will not. Which pavers have you been looking at? If you like unilock I hear that they have a great factory sale a couple of times a year. Search this forum for Cutter10 and you'll find a thread.

We love our pavers and are very glad we went with them. Look at our pool build. You do not want to know because Florida is unusually low compared to the rest of the country. Well if you must know, it was included in the price of the pool and our pool cost 21k

I'm loving my Shellock Artistic Pavers that were put in last week. They definitely stay cooler in the hot afternoon sun than my neighbors reddish concrete pavers. Still need their final acid wash, not sealing these. The shells look really neat.
I think they were about $7-9sf installed here in Florida. Some PBs added shipping charges, too, because they are really, really dense (heavy) and ship from Miami.

Hi Banana, I forgot to mention that I've learned it's harder (read: more expensive) to install a cover and safety fence with pavers than it is with poured or stamped concrete or exposed aggregate. Just something to keep in mind.
