"Whatever good things we build end up building us." - Jim Rohn, Entrepreneur

A hardscape is an extension of the home, and homes are a reflection of those who live within them. The extra effort to research materials and building techniques that last and are easily maintained always pays dividends in the end. Realtors would agree that details like extremely durable and attractive pavers make the difference in curb appeal. It's worth it to invest in a hardscape that is built to last.

Here are three reasons why pavers are the best option for hardscaping projects.

1. Pavers are more attractive and flexible. Pavers have an immeasurable advantage over other common paving materials like concrete and asphalt. The range of colors, textures, size and pattern options give homeowners design advantages that other surface covers cannot offer. Many very closely emulate the look of natural stone. Pavers can be easily customized to fit any design aesthetic.
2. Pavers are extremely durable and weather-damage resistant. Pavers last for decades. Stamped concrete, ordinary concrete and asphalt begin cracking after the first few winters. Because pavers are a flexible system, they have room to expand with freeze and thaw conditions; the other monolithic surface treatments do not. The design of the pavers help snow and ice melt more quickly and the surface pavers create allows for easy snow removal. Also, if a paver does get damaged in any way, it is very easily individually replaced. With pavers, there is no need to demolish an entire hardscape for underground repairs or to install or fix wiring underneath.
3. Pavers are guaranteed. Reputable paver manufacturers offer a structural guarantee on their products. The science behind the design and manufacturing of good quality pavers allows for a rock-solid guarantee for the lifetime of the pavers. Few other surface treatments offer that.

Like the old business adage goes, it costs money to save money. While the initial cost and installation of pavers can sometimes pass the price of cheaper options like concrete or asphalt, the quality and easy maintenance of pavers will save time and money in the long run. Anything worth building is worth building to last.
