Looking to improve your dirt, concrete slab, or asphalt driveway or walkway? Looking to build a dynamic outdoor landscape? Interlocking pavers are a great addition to any outdoor project and can add beauty and function to your home. They are very durable and require little maintenance. If installed properly with the proper bedding material, they can be walked on and driven on without fear of cracking or breaking because they interlock in a way which allows the dispersion of weight across the entire area. If one does crack or break, simply lift the damaged one up and replace it with a new one. They are also resistant to spilled fuel or oil stains. Interlocking pavers are the material of choice for the homeowner who wants a beautiful, worry-free driveway, patio or walkway.
Interlocking pavers also go by the name of paving stones, concrete pavers, patio pavers, or cement pavers. These are typically made from cement or concrete. They can also be found in natural stone or brick. They can be found in virtually any color and many different shapes; from a diamond style, herringbone or hexagonal style. You can customize them to suit your own tastes. Interlocking pavers are also available in a wide variety of sizes, from 6"x6" to 2'x2'. There are thin pavers and thick pavers. It's all a matter of taste.
