Pour vs. pave.
Concrete pavers are available in many different shapes, sizes, and colors that can be arranged in various patterns. The difference with pavers is that they are not poured, we arrive at your home with dry pavers that are ready to be installed. Pavers are in direct contrast to poured concrete slabs as it is mixed on-site and left to cure as a single slab. Our clients have the privilege of choosing between two types of pavers namely interlocking pavers and architectural pavers. The latter being ideal for landscaping and the former which is thicker and sturdier makes for excellent pavements and driveways.

Why concrete pavers are more cost-effective in the long run.
As far as installation and material cost is concerned, poured concrete is technically more affordable than pavers. When calculating which option is more cost-effective one should consider not only the upfront costs involved but how much maintenance costs will be over the lifespan of your patio. Patio experts have established that pavers are more durable and flexible which minimizes the possibility of a complete patio replacement. And because the pavers can accommodate fluctuations in the ground when dry set, it is less likely to incur damages. Plus, it is more resistant to defects caused by thaw cycles.
