6 Benefits of Driveway Pavers
Concrete is typically the standard option for driveways, but they can be boring, crack easily, get stained and need a complete replacement if damaged. The average pick is not always the best option.
If you are tired of having a driveway that takes away from your home’s curb appeal, there is an alternative: driveway pavers. You can replace your concrete driveway with pavers that are arranged in a unique pattern and enhance the overall appearance of your home, not to mention increase the value of your home!

Here are a few of the benefits:
Paving stones are extremely durable and can handle the weight of vehicles without cracking or becoming damaged. They will last for years without needing to be replaced.
2. No stains.
By using paver sealer, you can prevent stains that can easily occur from oil leaks, spills or rubber. Simply wash your driveway pavers with water to remove any marks.
3. Easy to replace.
If a concrete driveway becomes cracked or damaged, you have the option to repair the specific area, which will result in spots of discoloration, leaving the obvious appearance of patches.
Because of this, many people choose to replace the entire thing. With pavers, you can remove the damaged paver only and replace it that same day. It doesn’t require complicated tools or a large amount of labor. Replacing a paver can be so easy that you can even do it yourself.
4. Multiple colors.
Pavers come in a variety of colors, so you can select ones that compliment your home’s paint color and overall landscape design.
Paving stones can be arranged in a variety of shapes and patterns. Your contractor can even create the shape of a basketball court, your family’s initials, a star or any other fun shape and pattern.
You can have a professional contractor install driveway pavers in a matter of days. Look for one that has received the Angie’s List Super Service Award and read other member reviews to make sure you hire a contractor that has a good reputation.
Driveway pavers are beautiful, will add curb appeal to your home and are more durable than a concrete driveway. You can easily see what your home’s driveway will look like with pavers by taking a picture and using an online pavers visualizer tool. This tool will allow you to select the paver color and place them onto your photo for an idea of the finished project.
