Multiple size, textured and tumbled.....

The customers have spoken and there's been a shift.
Gone are the days of traditional, commodity paver products-the 4x8 hollands and 2pc cobbles sets. End users are now looking for multiple sizes, random appearance, textured and/or tumbled products.

Our sales of these products have grown at amazing rates, while the traditional Bella Stone pavers still get requested, 75% of our sales are now tumbled or multi-piece pavers such as Bella Vista Rustic.

The local dealers are stocking and displaying these products and contractors are urging the consumers to utilize these products. ICPI indicates this trend will continue to increase, as the midwest continues to play catch-up to the east/west coast trends.....

ps- Free Standing Wall products are an easy up-sell to any project. Create a boundary and additional seating areas on your same base you've prepared for your pavers.

Turn that $2,000 patio project into $3,500
with little additional effort and high returns to your bottom line.

Disclaimer: We don't sell paver sealer, We don't make paver sealer, We don't distribute paver sealers, but we do recommend it!

Contractor: If you're installing Interlocking Pavers (like Bella Stone Pavers) and not including or upselling a paver sealer, you're missing a golded opportunity....One, it's a easy sell before, during or after your install so increase that final ticket and profit while you're on the job. Two, It's easy to do- enough said. Three, it makes any job look GREAT, so it will help lead to new jobs!

There are a number of quality paver sealers out there, but be warned--you get what you pay for. So we'd recommend you do a little research and find a company that will stand behind there product for a limited period.

Homeowner: Sealing your final Paver project gives the product more "pop" and helps reduce fading over time from the sun. It's relatively inexpensive and you can easily do it yourself.
