Frequently Asked Questions
How much maintenance is required?
Pavers require far less maintenance than other hardscape materials. Their strength and durability eliminate costly patching or re-surfacing while providing a long-lasting, dependable surface that is both aesthetically pleasing and lasts for many years. The modular nature of pavers assures that they can easily be replaced or repaired as needed. A seal is not something that is required which can help offset the initial project cost.
Is cracking an issue in pavers?
Not typically. Because pavers consist of small, high-density units, they resist the long, unsightly cracks that can mar ordinary concrete.
Do pavers stain easily on a driveway?
While any cement product will change color over time or be impacted by outside forces, pavers are less absorbent than other applications. Pavers are rated for less than 5% absorption, which is considerably lower than asphalt and poured concrete. This aids in resistance to oil and salt, both common destructive agents in the life and appearance of other paved surfaces.
Are pavers stronger than concrete?
Yes, they are. Inch for inch, pavers are stronger and more durable than conventional surfacing materials. Pavers can easily handle the daily weight stresses of cars and trucks. In fact, they are currently being installed on airport runways!
What is the warranty on pavers?
We offer a 2 year workmanship warranty and a lifetime product warranty on any Belgard paver installation.
