Why Choose Pavers Over Asphalt or Concrete for Your Driveway?
(besides adding the obvious beauty & value to your home)
Pavers Are More Durable than Concrete
Never replace ugly, cracked concrete again!
Paver stones can withstand 8,000 PSI, compared to concrete at around 4,000 PSI. This means your investment is protected from cracking or breaking, making pavers an ideal solution for both patios and driveways.
As members of the Interlocking Concrete Paving Institute (ICPI), we either meet or exceed ICPI’s recommendations.
Pavers Are Low Maintenance
Instead of pouring a single surface of concrete, each paver is placed individually. Need access to a utility line, or cut a tree root that’s grown underneath your pavers? Simply remove the paving stones and replace once complete – no unsightly patches or expensive repairs needed!
Especially in California, paver stones are an “earthquake proof” solution for your home. Unlike concrete or asphalt, pavers are designed to last a lifetime.
Pavers Withstand Buckling & Shifting
What makes pavers so strong and durable? Below the surface, a geotextile fabric is placed to assist with soil stability and drainage. Next, a layer of baserock is installed & compacted to ICPI’s recommended specifications. Above that, a layer of bedding sand is placed to help avoid buckling & shifting. Once the pavers are individually laid, a joint sand is swept into the gaps to help them “interlock” into their final resting place.
Pavers Are Better for Drainage
One of the most critical aspects of installing a new hardscape is proper grading and installation of drainage. The installation of paver stones allows for more differentiation in grading then does the construction of concrete. Planning proper drainage is our expertise and choosing a contractor well versed in surface drainage is a crucial component to ensuring your new pavement and drainage systems will remedy previous and prevent future drainage issues.
