The Advantages of a Porcelain Paver Driveway

Are you looking to upscale your home’s hardscaping? One of the easiest ways to accomplish this and improve your home’s value is by upgrading your driveway. Instead of pitted concrete or cracked & faded asphalt, you may want to consider using porcelain pavers. 

Aside from the beautiful look that porcelain pavers will add to your home’s curb appeal, porcelain pavers offer a variety of advantages over traditional and outdated concrete or asphalt driveways. 

Here are a few advantages of a porcelain paver driveway:

Low Maintenance – Forget sealing and scrubbing! Porcelain pavers are exceptionally low maintenance. Just give your porcelain driveway a quick power wash in the spring to return it to its freshly installed good looks. 

Stain-Free – We’ve all seen oil stains on driveways. In the case of asphalt, an annual sealing might cover it up. With concrete driveways, it is impossible to get rid of stains. Porcelain is non-porous, which means it will not absorb stains, keeping your driveway in pristine condition. Porcelain pavers do not need to be sealed and are easy to clean. They are also resistant to abrasions, scratches, moss, and mould.

Appeal – Imagine LOVING your driveway! A porcelain driveway provides a neighbour-envy, upscale look.

Durability – Over time, especially in Canada, where hardscapes need to withstand freeze & thaw cycles, concrete driveways will begin to shift and crack, destroying your driveway’s appearance and even causing tripping hazards. Porcelain pavers are more durable than both asphalt and concrete driveway alternatives. You won’t need to deal with cracking or replacing it every 15 years.

Design Versatility – The sky’s the limit when designing outdoor porcelain paver hardscapes, including driveways. Have your driveway match your steps and walkways, choose porcelain as a border, or choose whatever other design option that strikes your fancy. Customize your driveway any way you’d like, completely original to your home, family and taste. Try that with asphalt or concrete!

Heating Options – Constructing a porcelain driveway opens up an opportunity to integrate heating systems. Just imagine never having to shovel again!

Fade-Resistant – Regardless of the amount of sunlight porcelain pavers are exposed to, they will not fade.

Eco-Friendly – Concrete is one of the worst materials for the environment, and asphalt is not far behind. Porcelain pavers are a much more eco-friendly alternative. A safe and completely recyclable material, porcelain is hygienic, hypoallergenic and odourless, does not release harmful substances, and is ideal for any application.

By installing a porcelain paver driveway, you’ll enjoy all these benefits and more. Constructed to withstand vehicular traffic, the strength and durability of porcelain pavers will provide the long-lasting results you’re looking for with the upscale appeal you crave.
