Yes. We’re biased, we admit it.
In the great pavers vs. concrete debate, you have two guarantees with concrete:
- It’s going to crack.
- Nobody will steal it.
Here’s the thing: concrete is a great choice for extremely high-traffic areas, regions in your yard with excessively high amounts of moisture, and areas where the emphasis is on utility value over design. Also, concrete installation projects can happen very fast, faster than pavers, which are pretty quick as well.
Pavers, on the other hand, are delivered as a finished product. You have consistency in color, shape, texture, and density. They are manufactured to 8,000 PSI, while concrete can only achieve 2,500 PSI, which means pavers are much more resistant to cracking and breakage. And in the rare event that one does break, you’ll likely be given numerous replacement pavers at the end of your installation to repair that one blemish on your patio. Can’t do that with concrete!
