Here are just a few benefits of cobblestone driveway pavers:
Reclaimed cobblestone pavers are extremely strong and durable. They can withstand the weight of a vehicle over a long period of time without cracking or becoming damaged. Additionally, they can withstand the elements, and will go years without needing replacement in even harsh environments. This longevity and durability of cobblestone pavers can be seen in cobblestone roads around the world that have withstood the test of time, including roads in Europe which are hundreds of years old that are still in use today.
Another benefit of cobblestone pavers is that they can be sealed using a paver sealer to make them resistant against stains. Staining is a common problem with concrete driveways, as oil spills, tire marks, and various leaks from vehicles can easily discolor concrete. With concrete driveways, these stains can be extremely difficult to remove, requiring a great deal of scrubbing to hopefully remove the stain. Fortunately, this is a less likely scenario with cobblestone, as cobblestone driveways are much more difficult to stain once they have been sealed. Additionally, any spills that do occur can be easily removed due to the simplicity of repairing cobblestone paver driveways.
An additional problem with concrete driveways is that they can be extremely difficult to repair. Should a concrete driveway become damaged, cracked, and/or discolored, driveway replacement is usually the only way to return your driveway to its previous look and strength; however, this is not the case with paver driveways. While pavers are extremely durable, should one of your pavers become damaged or stained, the individual paver can be easily removed or replaced. This makes maintaining a cobblestone paver driveway much simpler, easier, and more cost-effective over the long-term. Should your driveway begin to look worn down, replacing individual pavers can return it to its original glory without having to replace your entire driveway.
And, if you like to look of cobblestone pavers but can’t afford a driveway full of them, consider installing a cobblestone apron or border, or a decorative cobblestone inlay in the middle of the driveway. You might also want to consider concrete pavers made to simulate the look of cobblestone.
