Driveways are frequently laid incorrectly. When this happens, someone has to come in to clean up the mess. We frequently get that call and have a great solution for the issue: a concrete paver driveway. The majority of driveways are either concrete or asphalt, but there are many problems that come with installation of both of these materials. They can also cause problems in the long run due to cracking, improper drainage, and bad aesthetics. Concrete pavers eliminate most of these problems and can give your driveway a unique look. If you’re considering having your driveway repurposed, or if you’re getting ready to build a brand new driveway, you should consider using concrete pavers.
- Strength – As far as paving materials go, pavers are one of the strongest available. It takes a lot for pavers to crack or break. You’ll rarely have to replace them, and most companies offer a lifetime warranty or guarantee on cement pavers. Paver driveways can last you anywhere between 20 and 25 years with very little maintenance necessary. Occasionally you may need to replace one brick or do some cleaning, but other than that, pavers are low maintenance.
- Aesthetic – You can choose pavers in just about any color, size, or shape that you want. You can choose pavers to complement your home, or even maintain a theme throughout. Pavers make great materials for pool patios and other projects as well. If you want something that’s multi-use in and out of your home, pavers can give you that look. You can get a very unique look for your home by using pavers instead of traditional concrete or asphalt.
- Weather ready – Because of the grooves in between pavers, runoff is much different. The water won’t run directly off the pavers, but will run through the grooves and even soak into the gravel base. Pavers are an eco-friendly solution that will direct water in the right direction. They’re more slip proof than concrete and easy to shovel snow off of in the winter time. Most pavers are also mixed so that the color goes all the way through, meaning that the sun won’t bleach them out. They really are great for all types of weather.
Concrete pavers are a great way to make your driveway look unique and function better.
