Pavers Vs. Stamped Concrete
Should you use pavers or stamped concrete for your patio or driveway? The answer depends fully on the nature of your project, your budget, and what you are hoping to achieve. This section describes both options in more detail and will help you navigate the best solution for your needs.
There is truly no limit to what you can do!
Customers who are interested in adding intricate detailing and aesthetics to their project should consider stamped concrete. There is truly no limit to what you can do!
Paver joints, meanwhile, need to be re-grouted with polymeric or river-washed sand. Weed and moss are often intrusive and protrude though the joints over time, which may lead to increased wear or even crumbling. Constant rain may also drain the materials between the joints and under the pavers, leaving the pavers subject to color fading.
The subgrade and the subbase of stamped concrete only needs to be completed once before installation. Pavers, however, MUST be installed on a completely leveled, even surface. If they do not meet the relevant criteria, the customer may be subject to a significant cost increase. Achieving the level surface requires activities like excavation, grading, fiber installation, base prep, and more. The total cost incorporates a longer construction cycle and materials than that of stamped concrete installation.
