Five Reasons Why You Need Driveway Pavers | Rockville, MD

Are you tired of your concrete driveway? It’s old, cracked and discolored. Or you have an asphalt driveway that doesn’t look appealing, dragging the value of your home down? Or your dirt/gravel driveway becomes a treacherous stretch when it rains or snows? Are you familiar with any of these scenarios? If your answer is yes, it’s time to consider driveway pavers. The power of pavers to be both functional and aesthetic cannot be underscored enough. Here’s why:

Aesthetically Pleasing

Pavers add a touch of elegance, a degree of sophistication and offer an eye-catching, eye-popping overall look. They help to pull the look of the house together, whether you’re looking for a Tuscany appeal or Mediterranean milieu. If you’re looking to upgrade, pavers instantly updates the overall look, giving it charm, character and beauty.


Since pavers (whether it be concrete, bricks or stone) come in a variety of colors, shapes, styles and patterns, they offer room for individual creativity or preference. Just by playing with the various components, you can achieve a look that's uniquely yours. Or you can create a look that complements or enhances your house or landscape. 

Handle Seasonal Fluctuation 

The hot and cold of weather can do a number on the concrete slab or asphalt driveway. They crack, leaving unsightly lines or they discolor due to extreme fluctuation of temperature. Pavers will take that headache away. Because pavers utilize interlocking technology, the joints are designed to allow the driveway surface to expand or contract without disturbing the overall integrity of the driveway. They will survive the winter freeze-and-thaw cycles well.


Even though pavers are more expensive than concrete slab or asphalt, the higher price will pay off in the long run. You will save on maintenance and repairs. Paving stones are at least twice as strong as poured concrete and they have a lower water absorption rate, which means they have a longer life span.

Curb Appeal

You've heard real estate people talk often of curb appeal of the house. Pavers deliver curb appeal big time in terms of looks and function. Undeniably, pavers will bring up the value of the house, a good thing to consider if you ever want to sell your house.
