A driveway is one of the first things that people notice when they are passing by your house, so it’s important to note that first impressions count! Now, that being said, there are a range of driveway paving options that are available for you to reimagine your driveway — but some offer more flexibility than others.

For example, there are a lot of benefits in choosing pavers. Pavers offer a bigger range of colours, patterns and textures that you can’t necessarily achieve with poured concrete slab options.

While some people believe that pavers are hard to curve — they can easily curve and offer flexibility in so many other areas. With our pavers, you can mix & match colours with a complementary or defining header course. You can even add a diamond to your driveway if you like!

Another thing that we love about pavers is that they don’t have hairline cracks and unsightly expansion joints that are so easily spotted in concrete driveways. Pavers are extremely durable and versatile, and even better, they are really easy to maintain. They are ideal for highly reactive soil types, which are extremely prevalent in Adelaide.

Pavers are also simple to repair. A truck reversing into your driveway might cause the odd cracked paver, but this can be easily and inexpensively repaired, in comparison to concrete which is quite a headache to repair!

Pavers can also be lifted off the ground if underground services are required — such as sewer, power, storm water pipes, etc. This is a much simpler alternative than having to cut up concrete and patch it up. If you’re still after concrete paving, have a look at our concrete pavers, which make an excellent alternative.

The benefits of pavers are unending, and it’s great because it’s something that you can do yourself! It’s not that difficult and it will save you a lot of money.
