Are Pavers More Durable Than Concrete?

Are Pavers More Durable Than Concrete?

Pavers offer durability, versatility and style. Pavers are made from a variety of different materials, such as stone, cement, and clay. If you are looking to redo your driveway, the area surrounding your pool, or any other number of areas with a durable and good-looking surface, pavers are a great option.

Pavers are made from stone, brick and cement and are available in different sizes, styles and textures. Installers will carefully lay each piece of the pavers by hand, so the installation takes longer than it would with some other materials, like concrete or asphalt, but it will also offer a stand-out look that the concrete cannot offer.

Properly installed and maintained paver projects require little maintenance and are less prone to cracking that cement, as the multiple pieces involved in the project allow for flexibility.

Professional contractors will lay a sand base several inches in depth and then using edging to keep the pavers in place before locking them into position with polymeric sand, which is sand mixed with binding agents and water.

In contrast to concrete, paver driveways take longer to complete, not only because each piece is placed by hand, but also because many home or business owners opt to have the pavers set in the form of a pattern. A professional will take great care in ensuring the pavers are placed exactly as preferred by the client.

Pavers are also easier to adjust and repair than concrete if they move or are cracked, since you can simply replace the damaged pieces without disturbing the rest of the paver project or move whatever needs to be adjusted.  Concrete, on the other hand, may need to be filled or a section may have to be completely cut out, in order to be replaced.
