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.
Compared to regular concrete pavers are crack free. Their inherent design allows them to flex and move because of their many dry joints between the individual pavers. No poured concrete is used in the installation only a compacted aggregate base and sand. Edge restraints can be packed concrete along the outer perimeter or special plastic edge restraints designed specifically for pavers. Tile stone flagstone or any other material that must be installed over a concrete slab is subject to cracking of the underlying slab. Poured concrete without stone on top will also crack because its the nature of concrete to crack. Expansion joints are intentionally placed in poured concrete applications to allow for this natural cracking. Unfortunately concrete does not always crack along the expansion joints. And when it doesnt the whole appearance can be ruined.
After some research we found that permeable pavers were best for us. These pavers come in many different shapes textures sizes and colors. Permeable actually means that liquids can pass through it. Our rain water would be absorbed by the dirt under the driveway with little runoff water rushing down the street until it polluted local streams rivers and lakes. Pavers offer a visual appeal through color paver shape and size. Pavers can be color matched to your home. With the help of a professional landscape mason patterns can be created to add more visual appeal. Pavers are dense and offer durability. They can withstand 8000 pounds of pressure per square inch which is much greater than concrete. They have a non-skip non-slide surface.
The cost will be a factor effecting your decision while choosing the material for the pavers. The concrete pavers are the cheapest ones whereas the brick patio and the stone patio cost more. The brick pavers cost the most. So if you are low on budget then go for concrete patio instead of brick patio. Once you have installed the pavers of your choice the next task is to keep an eye on its maintenance. The maintenance depends on the material that you are using for the patios. Some materials need more attention while the others need low or no attention at all. This is simply due to the fact that some pavers will hold on to their color for longer while other will not. Also the pavers which are easy to clean will require low maintenance than the pavers needing more time for cleaning.
