When deciding between concrete walkways or pavers, the choice selection is sometimes overwhelming. Today's homeowners are looking for alternative ways to pave driveways, walkways while incorporating unique designs into their landscaping. One way people are accomplishing this is by using Unilock pavers, an alternative and durable solution to the traditional clay brick, and Paramount Stone Company is a certified retailer.
How are Unilock pavers different?
Unlike the traditional clay brick, Unilock makes pavers from concrete and other hard minerals. They are manipulated in the process to give you a look and feel of real clay bricks but are more durable and can stand up to all the extreme weather conditions. Unilock also makes pavers that mimic precious stones with their Enduracolor and Enduracolor Plus lines. The manufacturing process involves using two high-performance layers that are compressed and cured together into each paver. This process ensures that you get long-lasting strength and color out of your pavers.
Cost of Pavers
Pavers cost about the same as stamped concrete blocks. However, this depends on the design, color and square footage you're looking to cover. In the long run, what may cost you more up front will pay for itself as pavers usually do not require replacement and are more durable when installed correctly.
Where can I use Unilock Pavers?
Customers have used Unilock pavers as driveways, walkways, patios, sidewalks and just about any other walking surface you can think of. As a homeowner, where you use Unilock pavers is up to you. They come in a variety of colors, shapes, and designs, so we're confident we can help you find pavers that fit your style and home décor.
Are UniLock pavers environmentally friendly?
If you're worried about the environment around your home, Unilock offers an Environmental Permeable line of pavers. These pavers can give you comfort knowing that they reduce water pollution by allowing the rainwater to recede into the soil after a storm. These pavers make sure that water doesn't create waste through the runoff that usually ends up in streams and other waterways, giving you less to worry about when it comes to the environment.
Commercial Use of Pavers
Unilock pavers are not just for homeowners. They can be used by business owners or cities to serve as roads or commercial walkways. The unique style and design of pavers give towns and business owners options that allow them to remain uniform to the surrounding streets and neighborhoods in which they reside. Unlike other materials that typically make up roadways and sidewalks, pavers are more durable and resistant to cracking, which means they require less maintenance year after year. When installed correctly or by professionals, pavers for both residential and commercial use can last between 50-100 years. So, using them where you have the most pedestrian or vehicle traffic is a smart choice.
