A driveway, just like any part of the house should be well designed and properly maintained, which is why you should opt for the best suited paver to achieve the best results. A number of factors should be considered in choosing the paving material such as the cost, the climate in your area as well as repair and maintenance charges. Some driveway pavers are intended for places with hot, sunny weather while others are good for cold regions.
Knowing the details about these materials will be so much useful before making the final decision.
Two of the frequently used driveway pavers, asphalt and concrete, do have certain quality that is exclusively found on each of them. A concrete driveway is made of concrete that is poured over the proper sub-base. On the other hand, an asphalt driveway is made of tiny stone particles that are mostly mixed with petroleum.
Another type is brick or cobble stones. Especially in Denver Colorado this is the most luxurious type of driveway paver as it is very expensive and stylish too. The reason for their being costly is because they have to be set piece by piece, one after the other. It will therefore take time to install compared to other materials.
Itâ€™s good to note that small, interlocking pieces of brick allow for better weight distribution than poured concrete. Hence, bricks can take constant wear from shoes and car tires without cracking or chipping. Also, the small stones with different colors form a pleasing pattern that is eye catching and can surely complement the home exterior. Perhaps the cheapest you can settle for would be the one made out of gravel. You can opt to place a top finish on it but the unfinished driveways made out of gravel hold well as long as they are not located in regions with extreme weather conditions.
