Recommended Materials for Your DrivewaysTexas has a touch of a modern world filled with asphalt driveways, so stone or concrete pavers can seem to create a different feel and appeal for homeowners. Stone has been used for various applications, such as walkways and patios, for centuries, while concrete pavers are in the construction menu for ages.
For an inexpensive driveway option, a nicely designed and built stone driveway can actually make an old house appear grander.
Stones Pavers Used For DrivewaysChoosing the right materials can really make a difference in the driveway design. Although it’s common to use gravel, crushed rock, cobble, or poured concrete, LandTech Landscape still prefers the use of stone pavers. The most common stone pavers used for driveways are granite, basalt, and porphyry stones. The advantages of each material are listed below:
- Granite. This is a popular material for driveways. It is a sturdy stone and can be turned into an exquisite and polished surface. It comes in different hues, which makes it an elegant material for driveways. However, granite is more expensive than any paving material.
- Flagstone. This is a natural stone that is cut to form a thin flat slab. Since a flagstone is a natural stone, it provides many advantages that include durability, acid resistance, low maintenance, safety, and lack of heat absorption.
- Basalt. This type of paver provides a beautiful and unique look to any area where it is used. Each paver is dimensionally cut and has a textured surface. Basalt is a very hard stone suitable for driveways.
- Porphyry. This stone was popular in Roman Architecture. It is a variety of granite with a naturally flat, durable surfaces suitable for use as driveway pavers.
