What are Interlocking Concrete Pavers?

One of the main decisions that a homeowner takes when deciding to build or renovate a driveway, patio or walkway will be what type of material to use for a project. Will you have to pour a regular slab of concrete? Using asphalt or gravel crushed? What about the interlocking pavers interlocking?

Interlocking pavers are most often made of cement or concrete, and have a tendency to mimic the effect of paved paths.This special locking feature makes it easy to add pavers without using mortar. Fastening pavers have the benefits of being an easy self-installation paving material for the homeowner or contractor. Paving stones are interlocked with paver joint sand throughout the installation process. This material holds the pavers in place by fully filling the joints from top to bottom to create friction in the joints. This friction in the joints disperses weight over a wider area so that paving stones can handle the weight of cars of all lengths, large sections and much more. Basically, any application for which bricks or mortar will typically be used. Interlocking pavers are available in numerous colors and designs. They are modular, so they interconnect in a range of geometrical designs.


Here are the 5 Benefits of Interlocking Pavers

  1. Interlocking Concrete Pavers Designs. You are constrained by color options, styles and low visual appeal when using cement, asphalt or grava as a paving material. Interlocking pavers ensure the uniqueness of your project, offering endless combinations of colours, designs, styles and finishes. This variation ensures that the rest of your paving project stands out. The elegance, strength , durability and cost-effectiveness of Interlocking Concrete Paver products make it an excellent option to use any side hardscape application for pavers, patios, pavers, courtyards, or pool.

  2. Interlocking Concrete Pavers are easy to maintain. Keep pavers look new, sealing them every 12 to 18 months with one of the many concrete sealants, depending on how much traffic the area takes on. Every time, joint sand must be applied to your concrete pavers area so that any sand that is swept or washed away can be replaced.

  3. Concrete Pavers repair and maintenance. Maintenance and repair of the interlocking concrete pavers are simple , easy and inexpensive. If a paver gets broken or contaminated for some cause, you just have to remove the offending paver or pavers and replace it with a new paver. 

  4. Concrete Pavers Versatility. The versatility of an interlocking concrete paver system enables the structure to be modified and seismic fracturing and cracking to be avoided. There is a lack of stability in the case of concrete blocks, which can lead to a reduction and a cracking over time. Although very flexible, the same is true of asphalt as it cracks with high temperatures and softens with time. Concrete pavers are versatile over other paving materials and contribute to the durability of the paving system , providing you with an extended choice for paving.

  5. Interlocking Pavers Strength. In comparison with the 2000ppi of some concrete plates, the physical characteristics of interlocking pavers support almost 4 times the weight of a regular concrete platter. This high strength of the concrete pavers enables longer life and heavier loads than normal concrete or asphalt.
