Tips To Make Sure Your Driveway Is Spooky Only Once A Year!

Published Date: Oct 18, 2013

Black cats bring bad luck. Step on a crack, break your mother’s back, and Jack O’ lanterns guide lost spirits home. These are just a few of the fun yet spooky superstitions people really get into around Halloween. But what is really scary this time of year is heading into a cold winter with lots of cracks already 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 your cracked curb appeal, 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 durability.

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, crumbling, 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 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.
