When it comes to choosing a ground surface for a driveway, walkway, or patio there are many  options from which to select. These different styles and types of material come in all shapes and sizes in addition to offering varying degrees of benefits and consequences once a decision is ultimately made. One of the most important factors when considering what to choose is the durability and sustainability of a material against the elements and in the event that any repair work, both on the physical structure in place or underneath is needed.
Considering these two varying but vital factors, there is only one clear choice – pavers.
Professionally installed pavers from our company are guaranteed not crack, fade or chip. While labor and craftsmanship is guaranteed for a decade, the stones installed into your project carry a lifetime warranty over any cracks or breaks. These days there aren’t many guarantees in life as the saying goes, death and taxes – but now the durability of pavers can be added to the list.
Whether the stones are placed in a high traffic area such as the front walk or a driveway does not matter. Both driveway stones and patio stones which may never bear the weight of any vehicle are both capable of enduring any punishment received without fear of any structural failure.
Another characteristic which helps to answer the question about why you use pavers includes their strength over both concrete and asphalt. Two common materials often selected for both driveways and walkways, the benefits of concrete pavers over each outweighs their use and should be taken into consideration when making a decision.
Another factor to consider is when a repair is needed for something which may be covered up by the right of way. Whether it is a walkway, patio, driveway, or other area, the implementation often covers water lines, underground electrical or gas pipeways, or other unknown components.
Should any of these areas need repair, the surface material must be broken into and removed for access purposes. With concrete or asphalt, entire sections must be destroyed and then replaced once the work is complete. Not only can this cause for unsightly and embarrassing patchwork but knowing it could have been avoided with pavers is important to consider.
With pavers, only the ones over a line or area in need of repair would need to be removed. Further, once the work is complete, the pavers are simply placed back into their location and any repair will virtually be undetectable. This is a major benefit to electing pavers over any other surface type for any of the aforementioned designs.
