Tips to Make Sure Your Driveway Is Spooky Only Once a Year!
Black cats bring bad luck. Step on a crack, break your mother’s back, and guide lost spirits home with Jack O’ Lanterns. These are just a few of the fun yet spooky Halloween traditions and superstitions we enjoy once a year.
But what is really spooky this time of year is heading into a cold winter with lots of cracks in your driveways and walkways. With the coming cold weather, those little cracks could easily become a big nightmare!
If it’s time to get rid of the cracks in your driveway, figuring out the right solutions can be quite scary. How do you choose the right product to ensure you’re not going to be breaking a lot of “mother’s backs” in your future? While concrete and asphalt might be the most popular, pavers beat them hands down when it comes to longevity, performance, and beauty that won’t turn ugly during the witching hour. Here are some things to consider:
· Pavers come in many colors, patterns, and textures, unlike concrete and asphalt. Take time to create a design that makes a statement that is unique to you. Add patterns, retaining walls and other features that help to create a howling good night, full moon or not.
· Unlike other surfaces, pavers can withstand dramatic shifts in temperature without chipping, spitting, or buckling. And for your mother’s sake, they don’t crack. Interlocking paving stones are many times stronger than concrete, and with System Pavers, they will come with a 25-year warranty.
· Not all paving stone companies are alike. The quality of the installation is just as important as the quality of the materials. Check references, read testimonials, and ask tough questions when interviewing potential vendors so you don’t end up with spooky surprises after your project is done.
Enjoy lining you driveways and goblins and ghosts, black cats and jack o lanterns this Halloween. But don’t keep the fright alive year round with ghostly stains and cracks. Visit systempavers.com for more information about paving stones and ideas for a design as unique as you.
