We are trying to figure out which paver we want to use around our IG pool. 1300 sq ft. My wife and I are having a heck of a time picking a paver, but more so, which company to go with. Does it really matter that much? We like Venetian Stone from Pavestone, Palazzo from Rinox, and Urbana Stone by Belgard. All are the same compressive strength and the same water permeability rated (<5%).
Does the brand really matter? I like the Rinox pattern, and some guys say Rinox is better than the other 2, some say it's better than Pavestone, but not as good as Techo, but better than Belgard...etc. So many opinions. I know Rinox and Techo are both owned by family members (or ex family members) or something like that. Belgard suffered from quality issues years ago...
Am I way over thinking this? I admit that the Rinox 10" wide coping paver is very attractive vs the 6" available from Belgard. Much fewer joints. And Pavestone doesn't even havea 6" coping paver. I'd like to go with all the same company.
Any opinions? My builder says for my use, there's really no difference...they are all good. He does like the fact that the Rinox are made to canadian concrete standards, which he believes are a bit better than the US standards.
