Driveway pavers or traditional poured concrete – which option is best for your home in Ann Arbor, Washtenaw, or elsewhere in Washtenaw County, Michigan? Unilock, the family-owned company that first introduced the innovative concept of concrete driveway pavers in 1972, can offer some insight.
If you’re like most homeowners, a primary consideration when installing a new driveway is cost. At the outset, traditional concrete is typically a less expensive option than driveway pavers. However, it is important to realize that any difference in cost upfront is almost always offset very quickly by the expenses associated with the required maintenance and repairs of a poured concrete driveway. Simply put, driveway pavers are far more durable and easier to maintain than concrete.
With their inherent ability to withstand temperature extremes, unforgiving weather, and high traffic, Unilock driveway pavers resist the cracking and other damage to which traditional poured driveway concrete is susceptible. That’s because our innovative manufacturing processes incorporate our exclusive Ultima™ concrete technology, which results in paving stones that are up to four times as strong as poured concrete. What’s more, Unilock driveway pavers are covered by a comprehensive, fully transferable lifetime guarantee, so in the rare event of a defect the affected paver can be simply removed and replaced. Not so with a traditional concrete driveway, which is far more difficult to fix. Patching can lead to unsightly scars, and the only way to avoid this is to completely dig up the driveway and incur the expense of starting from scratch.
In addition to having an ease of maintenance and durability that far exceeds that of traditional concrete, Unilock driveway pavers offer aesthetic advantages as well. With our premium Unilock Select™ product line, you can create a functional work of art by choosing from our expansive array of coordinating style options, such as:
• Copthorne® - the look of hand-chiseled bricks
• Richcliff® - a natural stone appearance
• Town Hall™ - a historical street paver
• Umbriano® - a Mediterranean look and feel
• And many more
