Driveways have long been the same: concrete or asphalt slabs. While they are driveway materials, they are not the most attractive options and they can take away from your home's exterior. For a more attractive look, consider a paved driveway.
Paved driveways have many benefits; here is what you should know about pavers, including what makes them a good option for driveways, as well as other options to consider.
Why Choose Driveway Paver Tiles?
There is no shortage of driveway material options, but pavers are one of the ones with many advantages to consider. Advantages include:
Multiple Material Options
Pavers come in a wide variety of materials to give you countless options. This enables you to make the best choice for your needs and budget.
Size, Shape, and Color Options
With asphalt and concrete slabs, it’s all one big piece. Pavers come in various colors, shapes, and sizes, to make creating virtually any pattern you desire possible. You can even combine options for a truly unique driveway design.
Concrete and asphalt driveway slabs offer a certain level of durability, but they are still prone to damage. Paved driveways are less prone to damage, which makes them more durable than other, more traditional options. One way they are more durable is that they can better handle temperature shifts without cracking, unlike concrete or asphalt. They are also less prone to skid marks.
Easy to Repair
With traditional driveway materials, fixing a crack or other type of damage isn't always easy or cheap. For paver driveways, that’s not the case; fixing damage is as easy as taking out the damaged tiles and replacing them with new ones. Interlocking paver systems further simplify repairs, to make removing and replacing just the damaged tiles easy.
Options for a Paver Driveway
When considering pavers for driveway, you must consider the available materials. There are many different paver tile options, with the most common being:
Brick pavers come from molded and baked clay. They are durable but still brick, so they can be prone to flaking and disintegration.
Concrete pavers are one of the most popular options to pave a driveway. While not as durable as brick, they still offer better durability than concrete slabs. Stone Pavers Stone pavers made from natural quarried stone are called cobblestone. Cobblestone pavers are extremely durable, which makes them an excellent option for paver driveways. They are also one of the most expensive options.
