While concrete may not have been around quite as long as asphalt, its amazing versatility has made it perhaps the most popular construction material in the world. And with more recent developments in concrete finishing, that versatility has expanded to a wide range of styles, colors, textures, and patterns. Concrete can be used for just about anything; paving, driveways, patios, poolside areas, and even decking. But it’s for paving where we really love concrete. We can create amazing walkways and paths to enhance your outside space.
There are so many advantages to choosing concrete paving. While a little more expensive than asphalt, its versatility makes up for that, with what almost seems like an unlimited variety of finishes to choose from. We can even do custom designs so that your concrete paving is truly unique. We will talk you through all the options available so that when we create your concrete pavers, you have a loo that really suits you and the area where they are being installed. Why settle for something boring when you can have something amazing?
Concrete pavers are extremely durable and long-lasting. In fact, when you choose quality concrete paving, they can have a life expectancy of over 50 years! And concrete pavers are extremely low maintenance. All they really need is the occasional clean to keep them looking in great condition. Concrete paving is the perfect choice for any area of your garden. Whether concrete sidewalks or a concrete driveway, pavers offer great looking areas with lots of practicality. Our team will work closely with you to ensure the finished look is just what you were wanting. It’s also worth noting that concrete pavers are up to four times stronger than fresh concrete! They are also resistant to the freeze-thaw cycle we know all too well in the Joliet area and simply will not crack.
While asphalt may be the cheapest option available, concrete is an extremely economical choice too, especially when you take into consideration its versatility and long life. Because they offer so many options, they are more cost effective than some materials like stone. And when you look long term, you will see that the savings made on repairs and maintenance means that concrete pavers are the all-round economical package. Over the many years your concrete pavers will be in place, they will offer you real savings.
When thinking about a concrete driveway, most people seem to opt for freshly poured concrete. But the fact is, using concrete pavers offer many more advantages. Not only are they stronger, but they require less maintenance and care than poured concrete. And with weather resistance and being less prone to cracking, they are, for us, the most sensible choice. And as with pathways and sidewalks, we can offer you a wide range of looks, colors, textures, etc., so not only will your driveway be a practical solution but a good looking one too.
