Using pavers to surface your driveway is not only attractive; it is a durable option with a great return on investment. Paver stones can provide a driveway surface that can last for 30 to 40 years with virtually no maintenance.
Paver stones are available in a wide variety of colors and textures. You have the ability to mix and match to create a unique paving pattern with varied tones, perimeter details, and curb designs. Pavers also come in various shapes and sizes. A skilled installer can create interesting designs, such as a herringbone or diamond pattern. Your driveway can stand out, offering greater curb appeal for your property.
Pavers are made of thick and strong masonry that can be interlocking to withstand the weight and wear of daily traffic and heavy vehicles. Some pavers are bricks or Belgium blocks, while the more advanced types are manufactured using concrete. The proper installation of pavers will ensure that they don’t sink or shift once in place. They will also shed water sufficiently when crowned and pitched correctly.
The climate in Northern Florida is ideal for a driveway constructed of pavers. We don’t have to worry about snow plows damaging the surface in winter. Still, the installation is more labor-intensive than your typical asphalt, gravel, or poured-concrete driveway. The process involves precision, a skilled workforce, and the proper equipment and tools to ensure appropriate subsurface preparation and tight joints. A paver driveway that is installed properly will require almost no maintenance. You shouldn’t have to weed at a tight joint. And, sealed paver stones likely won’t succumb to oil stains. Most can be hosed off easily.
