THE MAGIC OF PAVERS FOR THE DROUGHTIf the Grass has got to go because of the drought, why not make a statement with pavers. The biggest question I’ve herd for the last 10 years in Fresno, Clovis, Madera and the rest of the Central Valley Is “What’s a paver?” Did you know the bay area requires pavers be used in driveways as a way to save water? Permeable Pavers are used to collect water to recharge the water supply and water for landscaping. You can also use Permeable Pavers for landscaping water storage under your driveway. You want and need a patio, driveway and walkway, something besides plain old concrete. When you are talking sustainable then you are using pavers for your landscape choice.
PAVERSTONES INCREASE PROPERTY VALUEThe pavers looked so nice but you said to yourself “Oh pavers look so expensive, I could never afford that”. Not True! If you are a savvy Homeowner you want to keep your resale value and curb appeal in check and if you really care about the drought, pavers are the answer for Fresno, Clovis and Madera. The advantages of pavers will save you money in the long run. Pavers will increase your property value from the first day and every day. Pavers save water with lower water bills too. Why not use them to store water for your landscape?
PAVERS ARE 4x STRONGER THAN CONCRETEYou ask the same question that everyone asks “How do they compare to concrete?” Well, they are not concrete, they’re better. Better for Patio’s, Driveways, and Outdoor Rooms because they have so much diversity and pavers come with a “Manufactures Lifetime Warranty” against cracking, when installed by a qualified paver installer, like R.

PAVERS ARE THE REAL THINGHave you noticed when New Cars are advertised they put them on a paver driveway which makes any car look better, Right? If you’ve tried stamped concrete in Fresno, Clovis and Madera, you were probably told it would be cheaper and it would look like pavers and then became disillusioned. You saw ugly control joints thru the paver pattern. You never see that in real paver installations. Control joints are used for a common problem all concrete has. Concrete cracks and moves. Control joints are used to force cracking to happen in the control joint but sometimes it cracks in more noticeable places. Places you always notice. The only thing that makes stamped concrete cheaper is “The Cracks Are Free”
PAVERS SAVES YOU MONEY EASY TO REPAIRPavers are easily removed for repairs. Such as broken pipes or tree roots. Then the same pavers are placed back in place and you never see the repair area.
When the stamped concrete starts to fade and looks old with-in a couple of years. Pavers are still looking good and have a 40 year color life. You remember when the stamped concrete was new and shiny and now are too embarrassed to have friends over. You find out to maintain the original look you have to use sealers that only last a couple of years. Now you have to seal the patio and driveway over and over again and the word maintenance shows up. The cracks start up, the trees lift it and wish you had put the pavers in.
NOTHING OUTLASTS PAVERS
Pavers never crack. Pavers come with a lifetime warranty against cracking and a simple sand stabilizer will keep the sand joint stable. Pavers increase the value of your home. We installed pavers here in Fresno, CA. at Mariners point located in Woodward Lake in 1984. That’s 30 years ago. The stamped concrete at the entry next door at Chesapeake, has been replaced several times and sealer applied numerous times. The only thing cheaper about the Stamped Concrete are the “Free Cracks”. We have never had to do anything with the pavers.
LOW MAINTENACEPavers are durable and easy to maintain. With a simple sand stabilizer. Occasional sweeping and rinsing is virtually all that is needed to keep them looking good for a lifetime.
