First, why concrete pavers for driveways?

Angelus Block has been manufacturing pavers for over 75 years, and their dedication shows in their craftsmanship. Angelus pavers are durable and made for longevity. They’re deceptively easy to install, and they’re equally as simple to maintain. This means they’ll stay bright and beautiful for many years to come. But what sets Angelus pavers apart from other brands is their diversity. There’s easily an Angelus paver for every application you can imagine. 

While there are a number of other options when it comes to paving your driveway, such as brick, stamped concrete, asphalt, and natural stone, concrete pavers offer a number of advantages. Some of the most obvious pros of the best concrete pavers for driveway covering include:

1. Durability – Some pavers come with an extensive warranty because of durability.

2. Strength – Can withstand vehicular weight without cracking.

3. Ease of maintenance – Concrete pavers often require less attention than something like stamped concrete, brick, or natural stone. Climate and geography are key elements that influence the choice of driveway paving stones. Heavy rains, freezing and thawing, humid conditions can all lead to erosion of surfaces. Driveways built of gravel and asphalt need sustained attention while driveway pavers are strong and highly durable. Driveway pavers not only have high aesthetic appeal but can withstand harsh weather conditions while remaining stable and clean even in wet conditions.

4. Aesthetics – We understand how important curb appeal is for homeowners. While we build paver driveways that truly stand out from the rest, we look at both functionality and aesthetics as we design and build the best fit for your property. Our leading driveway pavers installation team work closely with you to match designs to your personal tastes while suggesting the ideal look that blends holistically with your property. From fancy precincts to functional driveways, we aim for perfection in everything we do.

5. Budget – The costs of driveway pavers installation, resurfacing or home improvement project are key considerations. The choice of design, driveway dimensions, driveway paving stones, drainage features, and adjacent landscaping are just some of the elements that influence the cost. At Titan Pavers, you get the advantage of wide-ranging paver options and design ideas to suit your budget and décor needs.
