Natural stone pavers used for a driveway, walkway or patio, are an effective way to increase your homes value.
Natural paving stone is a much more visually appealing choice which has the distinct advantage of lasting longer than manufactured pavers, decomposed granite, concrete or similar manufactured material. When this is taken into consideration, along with the increased value to your property, its easy to understand why the investment may be very worthwhile.
Ask a stone supplier or contractor about maintenance and longevity. Concrete becomes unsightly after several years with cracks and uplifting. Replacing decomposed granite/gravel after exposure to weather and wear may become tedious and costly not to mention the mess it makes on garage floors and inside your home. Natural stone pavers may only need a sealant (many types do not) and can last the lifetime of your home!
Most natural stone exterior surfaces if installed properly can last indefinitely. Choices are abundant, from beautiful domestic sandstone pavers (see photo above) to imported stone such as French Limestone or Porphyry pavers. And for something very unique, old reclaimed granite cobblestone, 100- 400 year old Historic European Cobblestone and curb imported from Europe! This cobblestone looks amazing, requires no sealant and little to no maintenance!
