Pavers VS Concrete

Pavers VS Concrete

When the time comes for the discerning homeowner to upgrade their driveways, patios, or other outdoor areas, there are many options available to them—brick, concrete (poured or stamped), asphalt, and paving stones. As an industry , Eminent Pavers is committed to providing consumers with all the facts—up front—to ensure you get the best results for your investment. This commitment provides the savvy homeowner with the ability to make the most well-informed purchasing decision.

Advantages of pavers

Pavers hold substantial advantages over traditional concrete including:


Looking for the perfect hardscape to compliment the existing elements of your home’s outdoor spaces? Pavers provide the type of customization that simply cannot be obtained through the use of concrete. Our impressive variety of paver , and colors can be customized to achieve the exceptional outdoor design you’ve always dreamed of.


Pavers are considerably easier to maintain than concrete. In the event repairs are necessary, the individual paving stones can simply be replaced. Compare this to concrete, wherein this is impossible. Cracks or other damage to concrete slabs require full replacement of affected sections, which requires a very substantial additional investment. In addition, repairs to pavers leave none of the unsightly “scars” that repairs to concrete can leave behind. This form of blemish serves to detract from the overall appearance of the area, whereas repairs to pavers are done in such a manner that they are seamless. Finally, repairs to pavers can be completed much more quickly (often the same day) and—very importantly—at considerably less expense.


It’s no wonder we’ve been able to excel at providing the best pavers installation for so long. Eminent Pavers only chooses the highest-quality products from a select list of trusted partners. These top-of-the-line include Belgard, Olsen, Orco, and Angelus, and it’s the careful construction of their remarkable paving products that allow you incredible, long-lasting peace of mind. This is because each of these manufacturers offers a lifetime warranty to back their paving stones. You simply can’t receive this kind of lifetime support with traditional concrete solutions.


Pavers add a lot more than just a little flair to your home’s outdoor living spaces. Thanks to our careful and installation provided, pavers are so effective at transforming your home that they’ve been shown to reliably increase property value, as well.
