One of the biggest advantages pavers have to stamped concrete has to do with our climate. As we go through the freeze thaw cycle, concrete expands and contracts, causing it to crack. A large crack though a beautifully colored, patterned and expensive walkway or patio is a painful eyesore, and not an easy fix. You can’t just patch it the way you might plain concrete. All the pavers we sell have a lifetime guarantee, but if one should crack, it can be pulled out and replaced. If your surface heaves or sags the damaged area can be repaired. Poured concrete is not that forgiving. Another advantage of pavers is the variety of textures and colors. Although you can stamp different patterns and colors on concrete there is limited choices. There is a variety of looks that can be created with pavers; old world, contemporary, cobble, modern, or classic. The options can match any dream you have.
Actually no, snow removal on pavers is pretty much the same as on concrete. The pavers are jointed with a polymeric jointing sand and are secure. They are a high compressive strength concrete product and a snow blower will not hurt the pavers. On a paver driveway the only precaution that we recommend you take is to use a rubber edge on the plow or bucket to avoid scraping the pavers.
When constructing a patio, it is important to first construct your base. In our market, this is usually done with 6” of compacted 2A modified limestone. This base must be installed in “lifts” and properly compacted. It is important to consider the pitch of your patio as well so you can control where your water will flow. Next you screed a level 1” layer of concrete sand and place your pavers on top of this layer. A soldier course is typically used on the outside to accent the patio and then paver edging is spiked in outside of the soldier course. The pavers should be compacted once they are installed and all the proper edging is in place. Finally, polymeric jointing sand should be installed to complete the project.
