Installing A New Concrete Driveway? Benefits Of Choosing Pavers

Jose Wheeler

If you are having a new concrete driveway installed, this is the time to consider what you would like. One option you have is using pavers. Below is information on the benefits of choosing to do this so you can decide if this is right for you. 

Many Options 

When it comes to concrete pavers you can create any design and have endless color options available. This means you can make your concrete driveway look completely different. For example, you could choose pavers that mimic stone, brick, or clay. This allows you to have the look without paying for more expensive materials. For example, a brick driveway would be more expensive when compared to concrete. You can create designs by using pavers that are different colors. This will make a plain, boring concrete driveway look much more interesting and beautiful. 

Adds Durability

If you choose to put pavers on your concrete driveway your driveway will be more durable. Concrete pavers are made in a factory in a steel mold. They interlock together tightly so there is no problem with expansion. This will help your driveway last longer and can handle a lot of abuse. You will not have to worry about concrete cracks, which is common when concrete driveways get older. Concrete pavers also make your concrete driveway more stable. It can stand up to heavy loads and can stand up to extreme cold and hot conditions. 

Less Maintenance

Concrete pavers do not require as much maintenance as concrete. The only maintenance will need to do is occasionally sweeping the driveway and cleaning it periodically. If your pavers do get stained, you can use a spot treatment along with a brush or you could pressure wash the driveway. If pavers are damaged in any way, individual pavers can be repaired without having to repair the entire driveway. This makes repairs much easier and faster. You will not have to use patches, which can stand out. 

Safer

Concrete pavers provide a slip-resistant surface. This is because when walking on the pavers you have more traction when compared to poured concrete. If you have children, this is even more beneficial. If your driveway has a steep slope this offers even more benefits. Because pavers are slip resistant, if you have a pool this is the perfect option to put around a pool instead of using concrete.

Technology Makes Landscaping Easier Than Ever

When I was young, I loved helping my mother in the garden. Our yard was filled with plants and flowers that she kept in immaculate condition. Once I was an adult and bought my first home, I learned that there was much more to landscaping a yard than I ever imagined! After a little trial and error planting a few flowers in my yard that died quickly, I realized the technology that is available to aspiring gardeners makes trial and error a thing of the past. After I found out what my "hardiness zone" was, I realized I was planting flowers made for much cooler climates, and I played around with software that let me design my yard very easily! I learned a lot throughout the experience, so I thought I would share my tips with everyone who needs them. Come back often to check out my new tips!
