As more and more homeowners grow tired
of looking at their ugly, stained or cracked concrete, dirt or asphalt
driveway they are turning to beautiful, durable and maintenance
free driveway pavers. It wasn’t long ago when deciding on a driveway
material was easy: asphalt or concrete. Today, the concrete choice
has expanded to include a multitude of decorative concrete options.
A well-chosen and properly installed driveway can add to the aesthetic
appeal of your home, create opportunities for landscaping focal
points, and significantly increase the value of your property.
Versus Mortared Driveway Pavers
are two types of driveway pavers: mortared and mortarless. Mortared
pavers have mortar between the pavers and thus create a hardened
non-flexible surface. This type of surface is prone to cracking
and makes replacing a section or a paver more difficult.
pavers are the preferred method. Instead of mortar a special mixture
of sand is used to make a very solid but flexible driveway surface.
And if a paver ever breaks or cracks, replacing it is very easy.
