PAVERS VS CONCRETE

Why Choose Pavers Over Concrete?

Are pavers better than concrete? Definitely! When it comes to deciding which surface is the most worthy investment for your home, the answer might not immediately be clear. Although concrete may be the first material that comes to mind, stone pavers are actually a far superior choice when considering durability, beauty and curb appeal for your driveway, walkway, or patio.


Paver Durability

PAVER DURABILITY

Pavers are built to withstand immense weight while concrete has the potential to be easily damaged and crack under pressure. This is because Pavers are designed to handle up to 8,000 PSI (per square inch), but concrete can only handle up to 4,000 PSI. This means pavers can better withstand use by heavy vehicles, large parties and possibly even a tree that falls unexpectedly. In addition, pavers are far denser than concrete which makes them much more difficult to crack.

 

Paver Design

PAVER DESIGN

Aesthetically, pavers allow for almost unlimited customization. Offered in a wide variety of stone types, colors, shapes, patterns and designs- your possibilities are endless. Concrete, on the other hand, provides no customization options outside of choosing the shape in which the concrete will be laid.

 

Paver Longevity

PAVER LONGEVITY

Pavers are built to last a lifetime, are easy to repair if ever needed and you never have worry about ‘re-doing’ your paver driveway every 10-15 years as with concrete. In the long run, pavers are made to last.
