While it’s easy to fall in love with the classic elegance of interlocking brick pavers, its true appeal is its durability. As gorgeous as pavers are, they are also amazingly strong.
Our pavers are manufactured at a state-of-the-art facility, using only the latest technology. In other words, it’s quality you can count on.
And when you combine quality products with quality installation, you have yourself a superior pavement system that can last 30 years or more.
Pavers meet durability standards before they’re installed
Here in Canada, pavers must be manufactured in accordance with CSA standards before they arrive at the job site. They’re required to have a minimum average compressive strength of 8000 psi, a maximum absorption rate of 5%, and in cold climates they must meet freeze/thaw durability standards.
Because they’re pre-cast, each paver is of consistent strength and quality and meets or exceeds these durability standards.
Pavers are three times stronger than poured concrete
Pavers are manufactured on specially designed paving stone machines that produce units of higher strength and quality than normal concrete. Pavers are a minimum of 8000 psi, compared to about 2500 psi for poured-in-place concrete.
Pavers don’t crack
If there’s an earthquake (a legitimate concern here in Victoria BC), or a vicious freeze-thaw cycle, your interlocking brick paving system won’t crack the way concrete will. That’s because the joints between the pavers allow for flexibility.
Pavers are winter-friendly
In addition to handling freeze-thaw with ease, pavers are not harmed by de-icing products or normal snowplow equipment.
What does this mean for you?
Well, the stronger the product, the longer it’s going to last, and the less it’s going to cost you in the long run.
Over a life cycle, interlocking brick pavers actually cost less than concrete or asphalt. And when you combine that great value with endless design options, it’s easy to see why pavers are the best way to go. Contact us to find out more!
