Many of my customers who are looking for a paver patio are often concerned that their patio furniture will wobble on their installed paving stone surface. So let me take a few moments to address this frequently asked question, "Will my patio furniture wobble on the paver stones surface?"
The answer to this question all depends upon the type of patio paver that is installed. There are many different types of paving stones for patios in the San Diego and Riverside area to choose from. In fact, Landmark Pavers installs pavestones from 5 manufacturers. They are:
All of these manufacturers produce pavers that are standard to the industry. For example they all produce a stone called Antique Cobble (or Cambridge Cobble) which is characterized by a flat top and a round beveled edge. They each produce Holland Stone (aka Villa or Old Town) which is characterized by a flat top and a crisp 45 degree angle edge. And they each produce a Stone Top (aka Pietra, or Slate Stone) which is characterized by a slate-like ruffle on the top of the stone. These stones have no beveled edge. With all of these paving stone types, patio furniture wobble is not an issue. This is because their gap tolerances (the space between the interlocking pavers) are very tight.
However, there are some patio pavingstones that are manufactured with a much larger gap tolerance. While these stone types can look elegant, they have a tendency to create "patio furniture wobble." These paverstones are listed below with photos.
Both of these stone types are manufactured specifically to have a large gap tolerance because this creates a unique look, which some of my customers absolutely love. While the application of these paver stones are usually better suited for paver driveways or walkways, some people install them in their patio areas. So, if you are a person who loves this look and can tolerate a bit of wobble, I say "go for it!" In summary, the answer to this commonly asked question is not a simple yes or no, but is dependent upon your preference of paving stone.
