Concrete pavers are the perfect way to create and update your building’s outdoor space. From parking lots and plazas to driveways and patios. Each concrete pavement provides versatility with its range of different styles and colors that can be mixed creating a unique space.
Benefits of Using Concrete Pavers
Concrete pavers are made by mixing cement, sand, gravel, and pigments to create a concrete mix, resulting in the concrete pavers being able to withstand over 8,000 pounds per inch of pressure in comparison to normal concrete that can only withstand 3,000 pounds per square inch.
Concrete pavers expand and contract with the change of seasons, but do not crack like concrete. Joints are inserted between the pavers to strengthen and handle the daily stress.
This makes it perfect for withstanding a high volume of vehicle use and daily wear-and-tear of family life. Lasting over 50 years with proper maintenance, it provides the best protection against freeze-thaw cycle seasons and salts, skids, and environmental damage, so you don’t have to worry about your pavement being cracked or damaged.
Parking lots, heavy traffic areas and driveways handle large amounts of abuse every single day. In addition to cold harsh climates, they are subject to freeze-thaw cycles and minor movements of the Earth that can damage and crack the pavement.
Concrete pavers are able to accommodate the daily stress using the concrete sand-filled control joints that handles the shifting of the Earth. Cracking and erosion damage to the paver surface is reduced as the joints handle the load without damaging the pavement services.
This makes it easy to maintain. Rinsing with a garden hose and sweeping sand back into the joints can improve the lifespan of the paver by more than 10 years.
If a paver gets damaged, pull up the affected paver and make the fix. Then put it back in.
Concrete pavers can be made with a variety of colors, shapes, textures, and sizes to meet your needs. There are two types of concrete pavers; Interlocking Slab and Architectural Slab.
Interlocking Pavers lack the natural looks but are thick that can handle abuse. Seen in driveways and parking lots, they can be designed to provide a beautiful and functional area that caters to your desired looks.
Architectural Slabs are thinner than interlocking pavers, meaning they are weaker and unable to handle as much stress. The slabs resemble a natural stone or brick look that gives off a natural glossy texture, perfect for indoor buildings and houses.
Whether you’re looking for a modern and contemporary look or a classic and timeless look, pavers can create a unique design that matches your tastes
