4 reasons to choose interlocking stones

If you’re replacing your driveway or patio, you have an assortment of building materials you can choose from. Driveways can be constructed of concrete or asphalt, while patios and decks can be built using wood or composites. However, in both cases, interlocking pavers are a great option. In fact, pavers in almost any outdoor area will be able to withstand daily use and the extreme weather conditions Ottawa residents are accustomed to. Here are four reasons to choose this versatile material for your driveway or patio.

1. Looks

When it comes to curb appeal, there is no better option than a driveway made of interlocking pavers. And with almost infinite ways to combine colours, shapes, materials and patterns, your driveway and patio will be one of a kind, reflect your personality and make your home stand out. No other material will look as good.

2. Durability

When professional landscaping companies install your interlocking driveway or patio in the right way, they create a surface that’ll last for years. The pavers themselves are made of strong materials like concrete, natural stone or brick. Because there are small gaps between each stone, the surface is equipped to resist changes your Ottawa property goes due to fluctuating weather conditions throughout the year.

3. Maintenance

Other driveway and patio materials require regular sealing, sanding or staining every year. Interlocking stones, on the other hand, require very little maintenance. You’ll just need to pressure clean them every so often, and sweep some new sand between the pavers to prevent weeds from sprouting. Furthermore, if damage does occur, in most cases it’s very easy to make the repair by yourself.

4. Cost

When comparing the upfront costs of installing different driveway and patio materials, interlocking stones seem like an expensive option. However, due to their durability and the fact that they require little in the way of regular maintenance, your driveway will last much longer than one made of asphalt. Similarly, patios made from pavers last longer than wooden or concrete decks. Plus, minimal maintenance needs translate to low costs.
