Whether you have a cracked concrete or stamped concrete driveway, an old asphalt driveway, or a gravel driveway, pavers are definitely the driveways of the future. Some of the many reasons paver driveways are becoming the #1 choice for new driveway installs is due to their unique ability to be zipped and un-zipped. Think of the pavers like legos; if you were to get a stain on your driveway, a crack, or needed to get access to underground utilities (i.e. drain-line, sewer, etc.), you can simply remove and replace the pavers as necessary to complete the task.
Another nice bonus to the paver driveways is that the manufacturers back the material with a lifetime guarantee from breaking or cracking. If you have ever walked on driveways that were slippery when wet, the nice part about a paver driveway is that the paving surfaces are non-skid and non-slip so you do not have to worry about anyone falling down or cars losing any traction as they drive on your pavers.
There are many more features and benefits as to why pavers are the best choice when considering a new driveway, however, one of the most important features is that they are absolutely beautiful and they are the only paving surface that actually adds value to your house. The reason why pavers are the only option that adds value to your property is the fact that it will be the last driveway you will ever need. All other paving options will break-down over the years and will have to be resurfaced or replaced.
