Pavers Interlock For A More High-End Look Without Costing A Fortune

Pavers

Why We Love 'Em

- Interlocking pavers are appropriate for any paving application, including patios, pool decks, driveways and walkways. - Because pavers are individual units or “bricks,” the natural joints between each paver will “give” with pressure, expansion and contraction --so it won't crack like asphalt and concrete pavement. - Installed over a base of sand, pavers actually increase their structural capacity over time. -With a minimum rating of 8000 psi, paving stones are one of the strongest paving materials, rivaled only by brick.  However, unlike brick and other paving materials, paving stones often come with a lifetime warranty.

-Pavers give walkways and steps a more custom, high-end look without costing a fortune

-One of the biggest advantages of pavers is that if a repair ever does become necessary, pavers are manufactured to be uniform and can therefore easily be -replaced without leaving ugly patches or scars. -Paving stones come in a wide variety of surface finishes, colors, and shapes that will complement and enhance the architectural style of any home. -A skilled installer can create a variety of laying patterns, giving you virtually unlimited customization possibilities.

Practical Advantages of Pavers: Money & Effort

  • Pavers do not require time to cure.  Unlike concrete, which can take 3 to 5 days before being ready for traffic, paver structures can be used immediately after installation.
  • The high number of joints in the surface facilitates the drainage of water from rain.  This enhances skid resistance and decreases nighttime glare.
  • If deformation should occur due to shifting of the base, the structure can easily be repaired by removing individual pavers, re-leveling, and then reinstalling the same pavers.

And let's not forget the beauty of pavers!

- Pavers provide a pool environment that is less slippery, and has the desirable look of natural stone.
- Traditional concrete, asphalt, brick and gravel pavements clearly pale in comparison to the beauty, durability, and easy maintenance of paving stone.
