Benefits of Using Interlocking Pavers
There is an abundance of design options available on the market, where interlocking pavers are concerned. Whether you choose a hexagonal, herringbone or diamond design, there is something to suit all individual tastes.
Interlocking pavers can create a casual or formal design feature in virtually any color you require. They are also available in a variety of shapes and sizes, usually ranging from 2 to 2 ½ inches thick, similar to that of a regular brick.
Easy Repair and No Cracks
An interlocking paver system is so easy to repair. They can be lifted and replaced without much hassle at all, unlike having to repair a concrete slab, where you would have to demolish it and start over again. The maintenance costs involved for this reason are very low.
Not only are interlocking paver easy to repair, but the likelihood of them being damaged is slim. For each unit has joints that allow them movement, so the chances of them cracking is very rare.
This mainly refers to the permeable type of interlocking pavers, where vegetation is planted between the grid systems. These pavers allow the re-use of storm water back into the grounds, rather than back into our waterways. Meaning that they also maintain themselves with the necessary watering, without having to use our own water, for it is such a precious resource.
Interlocking pavers are designed so that there are ridges on the wall of the paver.
During installation special grades and sizes of sand is sifted between the pavers. When installed correctly they will not shift or sink. They can withstand being walked on and driven on, without buckling. This makes interlocking pavers a very strong and sturdy surface material.
