The use of concrete pavers is growing rapidly on both commercial and residential construction projects. Pavers interlock together to form a patterned surface which can be put into service immediately. Pavers are manufactured in various textures and colors. A big benefit of pavers is that they can be removed and re-installed, which reduces future service interruptions.
Pavers are often used for the following applications:
- project entrances
- a walkway through a city park
- pool decks
- entrance to corporate offices
- around fountains
- streets (most of Germany is paver streets)
- airport runways
The popularity of pavers is expanding rapidly in the United States. There is plenty of growth to go: in Europe there are 100 square feet of pavers installed per person annually, in the United States it is only 1 square foot per person. Insiders in the paver business say the market is on fire and poised to continue growing as the benefits of pavers become more well known.
