When it comes to the debate between concrete vs pavers, we’re certain that pavers are the ideal choice when it’s time to update your home’s appearance. With spring and summer on the way you’ll be spending more time outdoors enjoying the splendor your home decor brings. However, If this happens to be your first time doing a pavers installation project, you might have concerns about what is to become of your existing driveway and even consider using your new pavers to cover the existing concrete surface that you have. There are many reasons why doing so could end in disaster and here’s why.
Imagine that your concrete driveway has taken some damage from a recent earthquake. If you went ahead and placed pavers above the concrete driveway, you’ll have twice the mess with half of the effectiveness, leaving unsightly cracks on concrete that could be already worn and dried out. It’s a tremendous hassle to clean up. Even worse, you’ll end up paying more for removal and restoration.
Installing pavers is a fantastic way to add curb appeal to your home, create amazing outdoor spaces and turn a boring patio into something extraordinary. However, when purchasing pavers for your home improvement project it can be difficult to know which ones to buy.
There are so many manufacturers, designs, colors, textures and styles that selecting your pavers may be the most difficult part of the project. It definitely helps to understand the difference between natural stone pavers and concrete pavers.
