Unlike wood or real stone concrete pavers do not crack or react to absorption of water. Wood will rot if not sealed to resist the penetration of water. Real stone will also become vulnerable to constant moisture. Pavers do absorb water but do not change their inherent structure. They do not flake or become weakened by the presence of water or moisture. Debris that accumulates naturally simply needs to be swept or hosed off. Application of a sealer is optional and not required. Sealers are often used where someone wants the pavers to take on an enhanced tone. Sealers will also help to resist the absorption of stains as concrete pavers are porous just like natural stone.
Clay brick pavers are made of natural clay that is fired and manufactured at extremely high temperatures. This process makes the bricks strong and ensures that the ingredients are bonded together. Brick pavers are proven to be effective and are considered to be one of the most durable type of paver material. It has been used for thousand of years and continues to be a popular choice. These pavers do not use any dye or pigments. Clay is a natural material it maintains its natural color and will never fade through time. It is available in different shapes and sizes that will suit any type of application.
Natural Stone pavers are quarried stone which are cut to the right size. Generally these pavers are laid end to end which does require more labor time. There is little maintenance needed and the stone pavers will last a lifetime. On a per square foot basis most stone pavers will cost $10.00. If you choose unusual or rare stones the cost could be up to $30 per square foot. Concrete pavers are colored at the manufacturer and may fade over time. To prevent this the pavers can be cleaned and sealed. Concrete pavers are priced at $5 to $10 per square foot and are installed for an additional $5 to $10 per square foot. Sand-set is an economical installation method. Soil and gravel layer compaction is necessary for stability.
Each year we make one major improvement to our home which will enhance its beauty or improve on maintenance time from us. We always look for things that will increase the re-sale value of our home when that time comes. Balanced with this are eco-friendly considerations for our neighborhood and city. Our driveway is the current project. We have already ruled out asphalt and poured concrete. Both have the potential to crack and give a negative eye-appeal and possible hazard for tripping. They are not the best eco-friendly structures. Solid surfaces let the rain water run down carrying leaves and other debris into the street and sewers.
