Pavers are paving stones made of a variety of materials and used for exterior flooring like patios, outdoor living areas, driveways, walkways, pathways, and entryways.
Many homeowners like pavers because they are so versatile and come in a variety of colors, shapes, designs and materials. Pavers come in concrete, brick, stone, and composite materials. They are easy to maintain. If one cracks or breaks, just that paver needs to be replaced. Plus, they add beauty and value to your home, as well as adding functionality.
A survey of Realtors said several paver projects add to a home’s value, like a paver driveway that adds curb appeal. Other projects include a landscape upgrade, which includes a paver walkway, a new paver patio, landscape lighting, fire pits, and water features. The Realtors also said curb appeal is very important when trying to sell a home.
You can choose from pavers made from concrete, brick, stone, or composite materials. Concrete is fast becoming the material of choice because they can be manufactured into several shapes, patterns, and colors. Brick pavers typically come in a rectangular shape and have an “aged” appearance, which some homeowners prefer. They make stone pavers from natural quarried stone, and they are more expensive. They make composite pavers from plastics and scrap tires. They are much lighter, and are a good option when weight is a factor, especially when used on rooftop applications.
When you want sheer beauty and durability for your exterior home improvement project, then natural stone pavers just might be what you are looking for. They are a great option for driveways, but they are more expensive.
They make permeable pavers of porous materials or with joints and holes in them to allow for the water to work its way through them. They encourage the natural flow of water.
Pavers are designed to last a lifetime, but the length of their usefulness depends on the project. If they are being used for a patio, outdoor living area, a walkway or entryway, pavers will last around 50 to 100 years. Driveway pavers will last around 20 to 25 years. Keeping debris off your pavers and pressure washing them every couple of years will help your pavers last longer.
Because there are endless possibilities with paver patterns, colors, materials, and designs, we recommend you speak with one of our design consultants who will help brainstorm ideas to see what suits your home’s conditions.
A brick is typically made from clay and heat-treated to harden the material. A paver can be made of several materials, like concrete, natural stone, composite materials, and even brick.
Concrete driveways have a similar lifespan as those made of pavers, however, paver driveways generally have less maintenance. One reason for this is that pavers are not prone to cracking. If a paver were to crack, you just need to replace the one paver. If a concrete driveway cracks, it might be necessary to replace the entire driveway. Also, a paver driveway will give your home curb appeal and might make it more attractive should you decide to sell.
Savon Pavers specializes in interlocking pavers, so we believe you should consider them. The pavers interlock with one another through the use of sand or other similar filler materials. Our crews pour the material over the pavers and push it over the surfaces so it can settle into the joints before being tamped into place. When the pavers become interlocked, weight placed upon them is dispersed over many pavers, lightening the load on each one.
Yes. Using a sealer will protect your pavers and add to their useful life. We also recommend having them pressure washed every couple of years, too.
A paver driveway can withstand heavier vehicles, like an RV/motorhome or tractor-trailer, as long as the base below the driveway pavers is properly prepared. At Savon Pavers, we have certified concrete paver installers on our team to ensure proper construction of paver driveways.
Because pavers are not poured concrete, they do not need to be cured. Once our team finishes your new paver driveway, you can immediately begin enjoying its benefits.
