Pavers for your driveways are getting more and more popular throughout the Adelaide area. They are seen as a much better option than concrete and other types of driveways. Pavers offer a few other benefits that concrete doesn’t. And in today’s article, we are going to take a look at why that is.

Repair Costs

Often what can happen with any type of driveway. Is wear and tear on the surface. And pavers are no exception. The difference is concrete driveways can easily get cracks throughout the driveway, as I said due to weather conditions like rain, sun and various other conditions that consistently hammer away over the years. And resurfacing the driveway can be a costly exercise as you more often than not need to repair large areas at a time.


On the other hand, pavers for your driveway can handle a lot of pressure, and the cracking and deteriorated scenario isn’t there with pavers. If for a reason a paver cracks or breaks down over time, all you need to do is dig it ut and replace it. You will not have to replace the whole area because of one little crack in a paver. Now using those two examples I’m sure you can see how different the costs would be in just the repair costs alone. There’s a massive difference.

Your Driveway Appearance

When it comes to the different types of pavers you can use for your driveway, you’ve got a number of options. Different colours and sizes to choose from. Often this can be the challenging part. Thus giving you a style of driveway that is unique to your property. And at the end of the day, we all want our front yards to look unique.

Having the opportunity for your driveway to blend in with the rest of your home and landscaped area is a real bonus. Something you have the pleasure of ding with pavers.

This is where we can help by giving you some of our knowledge we have gained over the years with paving a number of different driveways. Especially when it comes to the type of cars you have.


Often the price of a driveway can come down the time it takes to do the job and the machinery involved. Often labour is a big factor with the overall price. So if there’s a way you can cut down on the labour costs, well that’s only going to help you in the overall costs.

Often when it comes to concrete you’ll have to wait for the curing process to finish. Something you don’t have with using pavers. With some pavers, you can pretty much use the driveway right away. But this does depend on a few factors.

As you can see there’s a number of options and variations available for you to use on your driveway.
