Top 4 Reasons People Love Pavers

Published Date: Sep 21, 2022

Whether you’re building a new driveway or patio or renovating an existing outdoor space, the choice of hardscape can make all the difference. Here are 4 rock-solid reasons people love pavers over any other hardscape surface.

Personalized Beauty

When it comes to giving your outdoor space a look tailored to your unique personal tastes, interlocking pavers offer unlimited possibilities. You might decide to mix-and-match solid walkways with patterned edges, or you could opt for a pattern all the way through.

You could even use pavers to create an eye-catching stone design. Available in a wide array of colors, shapes and hues, pavers are a versatile choice that can effortlessly enhance your landscape and your view.

Longevity

In contrast to other surfaces which have relatively short lifespans, paving stones are designed to last for decades. It’s been estimated that a paving stone patio, pool deck or driveway can last up to four times longer than one made from concrete. That translates into many years of virtually maintenance-free enjoyment for you and your loved ones. People also consider pavers to be an investment in their home, one that won’t have recurring costs or expensive repairs that add secret expenses down the line. Other hardscape surfaces need regular maintenance and react poorly to weather changes.

Strength & Durability

Pavers can handle up to 8,000 PSI (pounds per square inch), which is plenty tough for cars, trucks, and RVs to park on. Compare that to 4,000 PSI for concrete, or even less for asphalt or flagstone, and it’s easy to see why people think pavers offer the most protection. Pavers are also designed to be flexible so that when the earth shifts underneath, they don’t snap. Buffered with sand stabilizer between each stone, this mitigates the risks of damage and shifting.
