Our clients have a number of reasons why they want to change their old concrete driveway to brick pavers. However, there's a common concern we hear over and over: "After a hard rain, water piles up and just sits on the current driveway! Can you help with this?"

Our answer? YES!

With the combined issues of water drainage, storm water run-off, and/or puddles, we can offer several solutions. However, one of the best options is to install permeable pavers. 

Installing permeable pavers allows water to drain between the joints, reducing storm-water drainage and helping to relieve the sewer system. Based on the installation area, permeable pavers are a perfect recommendation for installation in areas with heavy vehicular traffic. They easily withstand the weight of cars and trucks and are perfect for daily driveway useage. 

However, we think the coolest thing about using permeable pavers is that they are eco-friendly.  This means that once the water runs off or through the driveway, it's recycled back into the ground for use! 

Now, you're probably thinking that Permeable Pavers are not as attractive as "normal" brick pavers. How can something so functional look good? Well, you'll be pleasantly surprised to see how great they look—they have many versatile designs and come in all different sizes, styles, shapes, and colors.
