Pavers are better than poured concrete for many reasons. Pavers are more aesthetically pleasing, offering a wide range of colours, sizes and textures to choose from. They are much easier to repair than concrete and provide better durability and flexibility. Their individual pieces allow for the expansion and contraction of soil, reducing the risk of cracking. Pavers are much easier to install, and you can easily lay them yourself with our helpful DIY guide.
Pavers add instant curb appeal and can help increase the value of your home. They are more durable and attractive than poured concrete and can create a unique and beautiful look that will add value to any space. Their durability can also help ensure that the area lasts for years.
The life expectancy of pavers varies depending on their material and quality, as well as the climate, installation, and maintenance. Generally, pavers can last 25-50 years or more when properly installed and maintained.
It is not necessary to lay concrete under pavers. Pavers can be installed directly onto a compacted granular base, such as gravel or sand. While pouring a concrete base may provide more stability, it is unnecessary and can add additional cost and complexity to the project.
DIY paving is a rewarding job but requires thought, careful planning, the proper tools, the right materials, as well as some lifting and patience! If you’re up for the job, here is a helpful guide with everything you need to know about laying pavers.
