Whether you are looking for rustic old world charm or modern contemporary, interlocking concrete pavers exude style and elegance more than any other paving material. The variety of colors, sizes, shapes, textures and design options will allow you to choose a style to accentuate your home and outdoor spaces. Concrete pavers provide many benefits over concrete, asphalt or stamped concrete.
- Value: Concrete Pavers provide the highest return on investment for resale value, durability and curb appeal according to real estate professionals.
- Design Flexibility: The variety of shapes, styles, patterns and colors of pavers allow for design creativity. The combinations are endless.
- Strength and Durability: Concrete Pavers are 3 times stronger than poured concrete. Pavers are rated to 8,000 psi, whereas poured concrete is normally 2,500 psi. Pavers are a jointed flexible system which moves in unison with the earths usual tendency to swell and contract over time. Thus, avoiding cracking, chipping and spalling, unlike concrete rigid concrete slabs which tend to crack and break into pieces.
- Easy Installation: Although the whole paving process may appear complicated, it's relatively easy and fast compared to some similar methods. The best thing is that there is no down time required for it to cure. You can use your driveway, walk or patio the same day it is completed.
- Repairability: Broken or stained pavers can be removed and replaced. Repairing concrete or asphalt always leaves you with an ugly patchwork effect, unless you replace the entire surface. With paver repairs, broken or stained pavers can be removed and replaced as needed. No one will notice any difference or evidence of a repair. The modular system allows for easy access for underground repairs, including pipes and cables.
- Safety: On both vehicular and pedestrian applications, pavers have a non-slip surface. Even when completely wet, they are not slippery. Great feature for pool decks!
- Low Maintenance: Routine maintenance includes regular sweeping and rinsing with a garden hose. If some of the sand in the joints washes out, simply sweep some more into the joints.
- Cost: If installed properly, concrete pavers will last for decades. Pavers are comparable in price to stamped concrete in most cases, a little more than poured grey concrete. But, if you have to replace poured concrete in 10 -15 years because of cracking, spalling and breakage, is poured concrete really cheaper in the long run?
