From simple brick and larger slab pavers to permeable pavement
applications that keep rainfall away from storm sewers, we provide
multiple options to suit your budget and site requirements.
We can recommend the right product and
have the experience to install the pavers properly so they withstand
the test of time.
Why choose concrete
pavers over traditional poured concrete?
put, in Pittsburgh (or anywhere else in the northeast), we have many
freeze and thaw cycles. This is the number one reason that poured
concrete cracks. Once poured concrete cracks, water creeps in, lays
below the slab, and freezes. This leads to the heaving and shifting
problems we are so used to seeing in the
Pittsburgh area. The solution? Pavers!
units are meant to flex slightly with the freeze and thaw cycles, thus,
making cracking impossible. Not only that, pavers are lower in cost,
aesthetically pleasing, and have the unique ability to replace a single
paver if ever needed.
One other thing
to note is most concrete pavers are manufactured with a high
compressive strength (8,000 – 12,000 psi) as opposed to poured concrete
which is much weaker and can lead to more problems such as flaking,
pitting and scaling.
Now that it's clear why pavers are better
choice for your next Pittsburgh Patio, walkway or driveway project.
