3 Benefits of Installing Pavers in your Driveway

Your home is one of the largest investments you will ever make and you want it to appear appealing.

Landscaping and paint schemes blend to make the area aesthetically pleasing, but what to do with that plain, boring driveway?One option to add both beauty and value to your home is having pavers installed. Yes, this option may be somewhat more expensive than other hard surface choices due mainly to the labor-intensive process of installation, but the long term benefits outweigh the initial cost factor.

Design Versatility

Pavers come in all sizes, shapes, and colors so the design options of your driveway are practically limitless. The experts at Concrete Designs can take a picture of your current driveway and, via a computerized program, show you exactly what your finished drive will look like with the pavers you choose. Straight lines, curves, and turns can be easily achieved through the use of pavers. Various sizes and shapes used together can create an interesting effect.

Easy Maintenance

In most cases, a simple garden hose is the only ‘equipment’ needed to keep your new driveway looking fresh. A good sealant application every few years helps resist staining from gas or oil leaks and tire marks. A mild detergent may be used for more stubborn stains. The sand used to fill between the pavers is specially formulated to help prevent the growth of weeds and grass, and stabilize the pavers.

Durability

Concrete has long been known for its strength and durability. However, a single slab of concrete may eventually show signs of wear, crack, or chip. These flaws can be patched but the patched areas may not match the surrounding concrete very well. Removing and replacing the slab can be costly. Driveway pavers are manufactured to handle the weight of vehicles and, in the rare case damage occurs, it is much easier to replace a few pavers rather than the entire driveway. As a rule, properly installed pavers will last for many, many years with little to no effort on your part.

When considering updating your driveway, contact the knowledgeable designers at Concrete Designs and let them show you what a big difference installing pavers in your driveway can make to the overall appearance and value of your home. They have the equipment and manpower to quickly and efficiently give you a beautiful new driveway with professionally installed pavers.
