Pavers vs. Concrete

Posted February 19, 2020 by Giuliano Franchi

Many homeowners in Southern California have expressed interest in renovating their driveway or patio space, but deciding between pavers versus concrete is a decision can be a major one. While concrete is often considered more affordable, pavers are long-lasting and offer your outside landscaping an upscale aesthetic that will increase property value when it’s time to sell.

Whether you’re looking for driveway pavers or patio pavers, here are all the reasons why an interlocking paver system is right for your home.

  1. Unlimited Design Options

Millions of homeowners each year use pavers for the reason alone. With pavers, a homeowner can create the driveway, porch, or walkway of their dreams and tap into a European landscape influence. Paver design is limitless.

While concrete may seem more affordable in the short term, pavers will prove its value if your intention is to sell our home in the future.

  1. Easy Installation and Repair

Pavers are extremely simple to repair, while concrete repairs can be costly and incredibly complicated. Homeowners may find their pavers loosening overtime, but this can be repaired quickly and at a low-cost.

Cracked concrete is a consistent issue with concrete repair costs being quite expensive. Additionally, the repairs are complex and time-consuming.

Pavers installation may take a bit more time, but the process is fluid and results in durable driveway or patio pavers.

After you hire your ICPI certified installation team, your pavers contractor will use joint sand and Polymeric sand to assure your interlocking pavers system is durable and will not shift, even if the soil underneath gets wet.

Pavers must meet a minimum average compressive strength of 8,000 psi (pounds per square inch), per industry standards and specifications.

  1. Higher Resale Value

Pavers require a higher initial investment than concrete, but when it becomes time to put your home on the market it will quickly become clear why that investment was worth it.

Homes with pavers have a higher resale value, not to mention they look kind of pretty. Pavers provide an extra degree of luxury to the landscaping of a home, and this will show when your home is being appraised.
