Pavers make for an elegant addition to any driveway. Available in a wide variety of colors and patterns, they are guaranteed to increase your home’s curb appeal as well as its resale value. But pavers are not just for looks: They are easier to maintain than pavement or concrete and better at draining runoff.
Installing a paver driveway is a lot more complicated than it may seem. In addition to requiring heavy equipment to dig out a base and dump huge quantities of sand and gravel, installers need to account for nearby structures, slope calculations, underground utilities, excavation time, climate conditions, and edging materials.
Unfortunately, it is quite common for homeowners who decide to install their own driveways to make critical errors. For that reason, it is a good idea to hire a licensed hardscape professional to design and install paver surfaces. They can provide guidance and work with you to build a dream driveway.
