Colosseum Plank Paver Patterns

December 18, 2015

The Colosseum Plank Paver combines the beauty of a travertine finish and the durability of a concrete paver. Its unique size allows for creative patterns that will make any project stand out. Many of the designs are inspired by hardwood flooring which features similarly shaped planks, just a different material. While there are a number of possible patterns to choose from, we wanted to highlight a few of our favorites:

Running Bond: The running bond features planks installed parallel to each other with the end of each paver lined up with the center of the paver on either side of it. The creates a staggered but simple look that is easy to install.

Herringbone: In the herringbone pattern (pictured) the pavers are laid in a diagonal zigzag. This is the most complex pattern but it also provides the most stability because the planks are pushing against each other.

Basket weave: The basket weave is a repeating geometric pattern that results in a checkerboard appearance. Three planks laid next to each other create a perfect square with each set of planks turned 90 degrees so that the short ends touch the long end of the neighboring square.

Featured Project: Danville Driveway

December 11, 2015

We would like to highlight a project in the East Bay community of Danville.  These home owners upgraded their driveway using the Sonoma Blend of our Century Stone. Their previous driveway, constructed of bland concrete with the house two decades ago, had seen plenty of wear and tear. Our pavers offer the durability that standard concrete cannot. They do not crack and hold their color over timeIn addition, the homeowners used our MaytRx segmented retaining wall block to construct a new mailbox. Our MaytRx block is offered in the same color blends as our concrete pavers so the homeowners were able to have their mailbox in the Sonoma Blend as well. View the gallery below to see pictures before and after construction.

Featured Project: Millbrae Driveway & Walkway

November 4, 2015

New hardscaping can provide the perfect finishing touch for a home remodel. Concrete pavers help to increase the profile and value of a house. That is why a Millbrae, California homeowner reached out to CastleLite Block to upgrade their front yard as part of their home makeover project. It made no sense to have invested in the exterior of a home and still have the same bland concrete driveway. The Century Stone pavers in the Tahoe Blend were used to install a new driveway and walkway. The modern styling of Century Stone nicely complements the new stairs, railing, outdoor lighting, windows, and doors that had recently been completed. See the gallery below for pictures before and after construction.

Frequently Asked Questions

October 20, 2015

Q. What makes Concrete Pavers so durable and long lasting?

A. All of our Concrete pavers are interlocking regardless of the shape, color, or pattern.  The term “interlock” is used to describe the internal friction imposed by the joint sand between the concrete pavers.  This allows the concrete pavers to withstand movements of the native soil which would cause cracks in other comparable surfaces(asphalt, stamped concrete).

Q. Where can i go to see CastleLite Block products in person, to make an informed decision about my upcoming project?

A. We have two locations where you can come in and see a variety of concrete pavers and retaining wall block and talk with a sales representative.
