Paver DRIVEWAY MATERIALS
Selecting your material is the first step in creating an interlocking concrete driveway.
The three most popular selections for installing interlocking concrete driveways are: Concrete Pavers, Brick Pavers, and Architectural Pavers. There are additional options for driveways, but these three are the most common.
Interlocking concrete pavers: Concrete pavers are affordable, long lasting, and appealing. You can choose from a variety of colors and they are very easy to install and repair. Interlocking concrete pavers are great for driveways. The edge spacers between the interlocking pavers create uniform joints. These uniform joints allow for a cleaner, more geometric look. Interlocking pavers are very stiff and made from very durable concrete. This type of paver lacks a more natural look.
Architectural pavers: Architectural pavers provide a more decorative alternative, because architectural pavers offer greater variety in colors, shape and face texture. These pavers are slightly more sensitive to traffic and weather. They mimic the look of brick and/or natural stone. While interlocking pavers are more uniform, architectural pavers provide for more creativity.
Brick pavers: Brick pavers are individual units. The natural joints move with pressure, thereby eliminating the cracking inherent to conventional concrete pavement. Brick pavers are durable and aesthetically appealing. This type of paver is natural and abundant. Because brick pavers are made from clay, the color of brick pavers leans more toward earth tones. Other driveway materials will fade dramatically over time and need to be replaced. Brick driveway pavers, however, are colored all the way through the brick and will retain a consistent color over their lifetime. Although brick pavers may require a complex installation process, once installed, they require very little upkeep and repair.
