Driveway Pavers have become a popular choice for homeowners over the last decade, since they are more visually attractive than traditional driveways, such as poured concrete, asphalt or gravel. Though the costs are higher, the end result will be well worth the added expense.

Driveway Pavers are available in various materials that can still be highly economical yet appealing, including interlocking concrete, clay brick, granite, among other types of natural stone. The most important factor is that they will have a much longer life than cheaper, traditional materials due to their strength and durability, especially under heavy vehicular loads.

When researching and selecting pavers for your driveway, there are some key factors that must be considered, in order to make the best decision. Choosing the most appropriate paver product depends on how much vehicle traffic and weight your driveway needs to accommodate and don’t forget to factor in water and rain conditions, as well.

Clay Brick and Natural Stone pavers are more suitable to driveways since they contain a very high density and overall compressive strength, plus they are more suitable to extreme weather conditions and rainfall. Not to mention, they are much less prone to fading or cracking than concrete or asphalt.

These days, you can also find some excellent permeable paver products that do handle vehicular traffic loads very well but are designed to filter and drain water away from the driveway to prevent puddles and moisture from setting in and causing sinking, among other potential issues.
