Benefits Of A Paver Driveway

If you are looking for a way to set your home apart from everyone else's in your neighborhood, you may want to consider a driveway built with pavers. And besides being visually stimulating, a paver driveway has many other benefits as well. Read on. 

Flexible Installation, Easy Replacement 

One of the biggest benefits about driveway pavers is that they are extremely easy to install, and easy to replace. You can implement a design in your driveway for a unique look, but if you ever find that one of the pavers is cracked, you can easily replace that one paver by lifting the paver out of the affected area, removing any tree roots that have grown underneath, and replacing the paver. 

Watering the Tree Roots

Speaking of tree roots, there are many instances when overgrown roots can destroy your driveway. While you certainly don't want to remove the nearby trees, there are many instances when you need to install your driveway over the path of growing roots. Roots grow because they are in need of water. With an asphalt driveway, the water supply to the tree is essentially cut off. Pavers actually allow more water to flow through the surface, and keeps the roots from starving for water. This could eventually prohibit the need for the roots to grow up under your driveway and subsequently ruining it. 

Durable, Clean and Colorful

Concrete pavers are extremely durable and can last for many years, thereby eliminating the need to have your driveway replaced or repaired. Pavers are a more expensive option, but the investment pays off because of their durability.

A paver driveway is also easy to keep clean if you use a paver sealer after you've had the driveway installed. When you see that there is a build up of oil leaks, rubber or spills, you'll simply need to wash your driveway by using a hose and the water will remove the markings. 

Driveway pavers come in a variety of colors, so sky is the limit when choosing what color you'll install. Many people like to match the driveway to their home's exterior, which is why having a paver driveway is so aesthetically pleasing. Coupled with the different designs that can be implemented when installing your driveway, you'll understand why having a paver driveway does make your home stand out.
