Whats more the range of colours available makes it easy to customise and personalise your own landscaping turning boring pathways into features instead. Outdoor pavers suitable for use on driveways are usually a little thicker than those used for other purposes. These usually come in a thickness of 50mm which also makes them ideal for other commercial use. This is to help your driveway withstand the weight of cars or frequent foot traffic. Driveway pavers are often set to smaller dimensions of 300x300 or 400x400 as larger bricks than this may be more likely to crack under constant weight of cars. Keeping brick sizes smaller allows for more even distribution of weight across the area.
Pavers can be repaired by lifting the affected area re-grading and re-compacting the base and bedding sand and reinstalling the same pavers. It is an inexpensive procedure that leaves no unsightly repair patches. Pavers are easy to maintain. Regular sweeping and occasional rinsing are usually the most maintenance needed. For heavy soiling pressure washing or a simple spot treatment with a brush cleaner water and some elbow grease will solve the problem. We recommend that you re-sand the joints between the pavers after a pressure wash.
Manufactured to tight dimensional tolerances pavers are stronger than regular poured concrete surfaces and more durable than black asphalt. They can take more abuse and last for generations. A segmental paving system allows for expansion and contraction without producing surface cracks unlike monolithic concrete surfaces and stamped concrete. Remove and reinstate the same pavers with no ugly patches after repairs to the base or underground utilities. Asphalt concrete and stamped concrete cant make this claim. Pavers are low-maintenance and offer low life-cycle costs. Stained or broken pavers can be easily replaced without patches. Darker colored pavers can help hide stains. Ants and weeds in joints can be prevented with sealers or herbicides.
Interlocking concrete pavers offer flexibility moving in unison with the earth below them thus avoiding serious damage. Stone pavers are mined for quarries. They have different qualities when compared to concrete and brick because they are more expensive than their manufactured cousins. But they are preferred choice for all external paving needs. Interlocking pavers can be installed very easily because they dont require mortar. They are made up of cement or concrete. These can cover any patio decking driveway or walkway. Brick pavers are made up of cement sand fine aggregates and water which is mixed together and fired in a kiln at high temperatures to produce the finished product. Brick pavers are highly versatile durable and strong.
