Pave Your Driveway for 2016

Are you tired of getting gravel in your shoes or filling in holes in your driveway? Make a plan to invest in your home for 2016 with a paved driveway. Whether you choose a concrete, asphalt or paving stone surface, you will have a solid, beautiful driveway that will add value to your home and be a pleasure to park on for years to come. So how to you decide what type of driveway to install? Here is a breakdown of the top three choices.

Concrete

Concrete is a popular choice for driveways due to the affordability and easy maintenance. Concrete is less expensive than paver stones, yet you can choose stamped concrete that gives a similar aesthetic appeal. Plus, concrete is easier to maintain than asphalt which requires constant sealcoating.

Asphalt

Asphalt is the affordable way to get the paved driveway you have always wanted. It does require sealcoating every few years but it is less expensive than the other two choices and will last for decades if maintained.

Paving Stones or Brick

By far the most expensive option, a stone or brick driveway is a beautiful addition to any home. Paving stones are also easy to maintain and repair since broken stones can easily be replaced. The aesthetic value of a cobbled driveway cannot be matched.

All three choices are excellent, it just depends on your budget and preference. Talk to your local paving company that offers all three options. They can discuss price, pros and cons of all your options without preference since they can install any surface you choose. Make 2016 the year that you get the driveway you have always wanted for your home.

Benefits Of Paver Driveways

A driveway made with pavers can be a beautiful addition to your home. It can add a classic look that asphalt or concrete driveways lack, but can also be accompanied by a host of other benefits. The aesthetic appeal is one of the main reasons that homeowners consider a paver driveway, but there are many reasons to consider this option when resurfacing your current driveway or when building a new home. 

Paver Driveway Longevity

One of the main benefits, beyond beauty, of paver driveways is their longevity. Pavers are able to shift and move, unlike asphalt or concrete. This makes them perfect for areas with extreme weather and even areas that are prone to earthquakes. The interlocking pavers can weather hot and cold temperatures, unlike concrete and asphalt which can crack under environmental stress. 

Easy Repair

Another reason paver driveways are desirable is related to just how easy they are to repair and maintain. Instead of needing to resurface or repair the entire driveway, when there is an issue, individual pavers can easily be removed and replaced. 

Versatility

Paver driveways are very versatile, both in their appearance and where they can be used. While water run-off, tree roots and other factors must be considered when putting in asphalt or concrete driveways, because of the flexible design of pavers, they can be used almost anywhere. They also come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colors that can compliment any style of home. 

Paver driveways can last for decades and are a great investment for almost any home. They can increase the curb appeal and value of your home, while providing a long-lasting driving surface that is easy and affordable to maintain.

Choosing From the Many Types of Pavers

Choosing pavers for your new paver driveway or other project, but there seems to be just too many choices? Not only is it necessary to decide what type of material you prefer to use for your paver, but other decisions need to be made as to color, shape and the design or pattern of your finished creation. 

A good place to start with making these decisions is to look around at the features already existing on the rest of your property, in order to match or compliment the materials previously used. Natural stone is an ideal paving material because it is durable and strong, able to withstand the harshest climate. There are literally thousands of types of natural stone cut from quarries and, whether it be limestone, granite, travertine or flagstone, they will also create a rustic, natural appeal combined with a dramatic statement. With such a variety of colors, sizes and shapes, they can be applied to garden steps, pathways, patios, driveways, pool surrounds and garden borders. 

In contrast, concrete pavers are 100% manufactured with a combination of cement and aggregate. Also available in a variety of styles, colors and applications, they can be made to look like stone at a fraction of the cost. Brick pavers can also be made of clay, which is one of the most durable types of pavers because of the kiln bonding process. Clay brick pavers also come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and because the color is natural, it will never fade. More recently, rubber and grass pavers have become popular because of their environmentally friendly design and permeability, allowing water to soak back into the soil. Your local paving contractor can help you assess what choices would provide you with optimal results for your next paving project.
