5 Advantages of Pavers Over Concrete

Posted in Paving

Whether you are installing a new driveway, patio, pool deck or sidewalk, there are two common paving options to choose from: pavers or concrete. Concrete is the cheaper option in most cases, but that does not mean it should be an automatic choice. While both will give you a stable surface, there are advantages to using pavers, including these five.

  1. Pavers come in a variety of materials and design options that can create a beautiful surface. Circles, geometric designs and herringbone patterns are just some of the possibilities.
  2. Maintenance. Pavers are simple to maintain, requiring very little cleaning, sealing or other care to keep them looking great. Concrete can crack, need sealing or stain easily, requiring more maintenance and repair.
  3. Repair. Cracks, chips or stains are much easier to repair when you have a paver surface versus concrete. A single paver can be replaced without needing to repair the entire surface. Pavers often need fewer repairs than concrete as they are not a solid surface that can crack under pressure.
  4. Drainage. Pavers can offer better drainage than concrete that may allow water to settle on the surface. This is especially important for pool decks and driveways.
  5. While concrete may be less expensive, pavers can add more value to your home. A paver driveway, patio or pool deck is an upscale option that can enhance the value of your home.

If you have a new paved surface on your wish list, consider the advantages of using pavers. Whether you choose brick, natural stone or concrete pavers, it can be an excellent investment in your home. Make sure to use an experienced paving contractor to complete your project for the best results.
