If your old driveway is past the point of continuous repairs, or you just want to freshen up the look of your home, you may be considering several types of pavers. Since it’s an important choice, here are five options to consider when selecting driveway pavers in Cape May, NJ.
A driveway has to be tough enough to support the weight and movement of passenger vehicles over the course of time. A properly installed paver driveway is made to not experience heaving due to the freeze-thaw cycle or cracking due to vehicular loads.
The pavers themselves have to be tough, too. Pavers such as Copthorne from Unilock would give your driveway the elegance of classic brick along with the benefits of Ultima Concrete Technology, which results in pavers that possess four times the strength of conventional poured concrete.
Since pavers are overall tougher and longer-lasting than solid surfaces (asphalt and poured concrete) you may be wondering if it’s actually practical to have them in the mid-Atlantic climate. The answer is yes: While all pavers are subject to damage from snow plows, you can install a driveway heating system under your pavers to virtually eliminate the need for plowing.
Unilock pavers are not susceptible to damage from the freeze-thaw cycle. In the unlikely event a paver should crack or break, the individual paver can be replaced without disturbing the rest of the driveway. The result is a driveway that requires far less maintenance, repairs, and replacement than solid-surface driveways.
Furthermore, Unilock technologies ensure long-lasting color, so you can enjoy your driveway for many years to come.
If possible, consider choosing permeable pavers for your driveway. This option is a boost to the environment because water will percolate back into the aquifer instead of running off and potentially causing flooding. The surface of your driveway will also be drier (and therefore can be considered safer); and as with other pavers, you could have a driveway heating system installed to keep your driveway free of ice and snow all winter.
Town Hall (a richly blended brick paver) and Eco-Priora pavers are two examples of permeable pavers that are not only practical, but beautiful.
A driveway is one of the first aspects that people notice about your home, so it makes sense that a driveway should make a bold statement. Depending on the style of your home, there is no shortage of choices (Unilock offers a large selection of driveway pavers that each exudes unique charm).
For an old-world look, you could choose Tribeca Cobble or Courtstone cobbles.
Brussels Block pavers feature a weathered and timeworn appearance of tumbled quarry stone. The look is relaxed, no-fuss, and welcoming.
Granito Hex pavers feature a trending honeycomb shape. The boldly mottled granite look adds character and a whimsical appearance in an extremely practical shape.
Artline pavers are an opportunity to add a creative touch for a dynamic modern driveway. Artline is available in random bundles of seven different rectangular shapes varying lengths and widths, along with two finishes that can be used individually or mixed for stunning effect.
