If you are trying to decide between a poured concrete driveway and driveway pavers there are some important things you should consider. You may not be as familiar with pavers as you are with the traditional poured concrete. If that’s the case, you will probably be happy to learn about some of the benefits of using pavers.
One of the first considerations when installing a driveway is often the cost. The cost difference between pavers and poured concrete is not that significant but you will probably find pavers can be a little bit pricier. This small difference in upfront cost is very quickly offset by the fact that you will probably spend much less over the years to maintain or repair a paver driveway versus a driveway made of poured concrete.
Since we’re on the subject, let’s talk more about maintenance and durability. Pavers are typically a lot more durable and easier to maintain than poured concrete. They stand up better to severe weather and weather changes. Pavers are very resistant to cracking and to other damage. On the rare chance that your pavers do need repair, it is an easy and inexpensive process. The affected paver can just simply be removed and replaced while concrete driveways are much more difficult to fix. When there is damage done to poured concrete you either have to dig the whole thing up and start over, which is very expensive, or you have to patch up the cracks, leaving unsightly patches.
In addition to the maintenance, cost and durability benefits of pavers there is also the undisputed fact of aesthetics. With pavers you can really up your curb appeal and express your personal style. Pavers come in many colors, shapes, sizes, styles, patterns, textures and colors. Whatever your taste, pavers will have something for you. With all their benefits you can see why you should consider pavers when you want to add strength, beauty and class to your home.
