Driveway pavers are individual pieces of stone, brick or concrete that is assembled into an orderly fashion so that it constructs a hard, flat surface for vehicles to drive onto. Overtime, standard concrete driveways will begin to crack in numerous areas due to normal parking and driving patterns. Also, stains such as oil or anti-freeze leaks appear unattractive.
Driveway pavers are appealing to home or business owners because of the fact that they can be installed by the owner. This allows the owner to design the outlay of the paved surface before constructing it. Some driveway pavers are laid down as a traditional straight driveway, while others construct wrap-around designs. Whatever the decision about the design, it is important to consult your South Florida professional to ensure the job is done correctly.
Living in South Florida, there are many possible solutions for landscaping needs. When first consulting with a landscaping company, the selection of material must be made for the paved surface. There are many types of materials that are ideal candidates for South Florida's hot, sunny climate when choosing the right driveway pavers, although some materials may be more expensive than others due to the characteristics of the stone, such characteristics that are ideal for paved surfaces include materials that are suitable for long duration in the sun without cracking or discoloring.
Lastly, driveway pavers are installed either using a mortared or mortarless method. A mortarless method involves installing the paved surface onto a softened sand material that allows for the foundation to be solid, yet flexible enough so that the paved surface doesn't crack in areas. A mortarless method also allows repairs to be done with much more ease compared to a mortared installation, where the foundation material is not flexible and can cause cracks among the paved surface.
