Driveways

Every time the snow melts, you may be seeing new problems with your existing driveway. Now is the time to start thinking of your options. Today, there many. Pavers vs. concrete - what is the difference? Pittsburgh Stone and Waterscapes recommends concrete pavers as the products do hold a lifetime guarantee and are a perfect choice for Pittsburgh's changing weather. Surfaces built from pavers are resistant to the freeze-thaw cycle, as they are designed to shift naturally preventing cracking and breaking. Pavers are much more durable as they hold more pounds per square inch than concrete or asphalt. Initially, the cost is more; over time, it is well worth the investment. However, concrete options are increasing. Occasionally, we understand that a client's budget needs or matching existing structures will call for concrete services such as poured, exposed, aggregate and/or stamped. Concrete, today, does allow an impressive range of colors and designs that makes it versatile for use around your home and is a great alternative to our concrete pavers, particularly for smaller projects and/or areas.
