What You Need to Know About Driveway Pavers

Are you building a new home or upgrading your outdoor living areas? Don’t t forget about the driveway!  We’ve seen a lot of stunning properties throughout Maryland, DC, and northern Virginia with beautiful landscape design, stately homes, gorgeous patios and walkways, and neglected driveways.

Which brings us to the question – Why ruin your curb appeal with a black asphalt driveway or grey poured concrete driveway? Driveway pavers are a great way to fully enhance your landscape and the approach to your home.

Types of Driveway Pavers

Interlocking driveway pavers come in a variety of shapes, sizes, textures, and colors, allowing you to create a custom look. And, you have options. You can match these pavers to your existing patio and walkways. Or, upgrade everything at once with a new look.

We especially like TechoBloc and Belgard products. They even have options that can be overlaid on an existing concrete driveway, as long as it is structurally sound.

Examples of your interlocking driveway pavers include:

  • Round cobblestone pavers
  • Square cobblestone pavers
  • Rectangular cobblestone pavers
  • Polished multi-piece modular pavers
  • Smooth multi-piece modular pavers
  • Driveway pavers that look like slate
  • Rectangular pavers
  • Diamond-shaped pavers
  • Hexagonal-shaped pavers
  • Triangle-shaped pavers
  • Brick-like pavers
  • Large-scale pavers

Many of these driveway pavers come in a variety of colors and color blends to suit your aesthetic. And the design possibilities are endless, with the various shapes. From an Old World look to sleek and modern, we can help you design your driveway to your specifications.

Benefits of Driveway Pavers

In addition to the luxurious look of a paver driveway, the pavers actually have several other benefits, including:

Flexibility

Interlocking paver systems are flexible, which is important in the Mid-Atlantic region. They will flex with the freeze and thaw cycle, rather than crack like concrete or asphalt can.

Durability

Pavers will last longer than asphalt, and many companies offer a transferrable warranty that cover things like salt resistance. In addition, maintenance costs are lower, as a paver driveway does not need to be sealed or re-coated ever 2-3 years like an asphalt driveway does.

Increase Property Value

The natural stone look of a paver driveway offers more curb appeal than an asphalt driveway. While no one is going to buy a home because of the driveway, a paver driveway can increase your eventual resale value.

Cost to Install Driveway Pavers

While the cost to install a paver driveway may be more than the cost to install an asphalt driveway, every homeowner we’ve installed a paver driveway for thinks it was a good decision. No one has had any second thoughts.

Dream It. Build It. Live It.
