Paversearch, Inc announces today the release of their extensive guide to Permeable Pavers. You can find this guide and all the information you need to know about Permeable Pavers by visiting http://www.paversearch.com. This web site provides visitors with an abundance of free and up-to-the minute paving information on all types of pavers and hardscaping resources.
Permeable Pavers can play a large role in protecting our precious water resources, which in the current climate is very important for the environment. The definition of a Permeable Interlocking Concrete Pavement according to the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute (ICPI) is one that “comprises a layer of solid concrete pavers separated by joints filled with small stones.
Water enters the joints between the pavers and through an “open-graded” base-crushed stone layers with no small or fine particles. The void spaces among the crushed stone store water and infiltrate it back into the soil subgrade. The stones in the joints provide permeability, and the base filters stormwater and helps reduce pollutants.”
“Another benefit of using Permeable Pavers,” says Candace Leary, Media Director, “is that they can also assist in decreasing the risk of flooding and erosion, which we know are terribly harmful to our environment. High speeds of flowing water can cause much damage to our natural landscape as well as man-made structures. Therefore, if more contractors and homeowners start to use permeable pavers for our driveways, pavements, public grounds and parking lots, we can help preserve our environment, natural resources and the quality of our water runoff supplies.”
Permeable Pavers are extremely durable for they are “made with high strength, compressed concrete that resists abrasion, freeze-thaw damage, and degradation from deicing salts. PICP has been proven in the coldest climates. It does not heave and remains stable during freeze and thaw cycles,” according to ICPI. Paversearch.com will provide visitors with a lot more information on the various types of permeable pavers, maintenance advice, applications, costs, FAQ’s, and installation tips.
