Driveway Paving Ideas

Have you Considered Rubber Paving?

While the interiors of your home may be beautifully curated, the first thing people notice is how it looks on the outside. Concrete driveways look beautiful when freshly made but given time, they start to crack inviting weeds and fungus to grow within the cracks. This damages the driveway further, turning your driveway into a health and safety hazard and reducing your home’s curbside appeal as the days go by. 

If you are planning on selling your home, an old driveway can turn potential buyers off and reduce the selling price of your property. Re-doing your driveway with concrete can take weeks as well as burn a hole in your pocket. 

Driveway Paving Ideas:

There are plenty of ways you can redo your driveway to make it look appealing – each with their pros and cons – some may require a lot of maintenance while others may be expensive. However, all of them add a sense of design and style to your home. Read on for some ideas on how to revive a tired driveway.

  • Traditional Bricks:

A brick driveway looks like its straight out of a storybook. Brick driveways look best if you have a wide, sweeping driveway. Brick driveways do need a lot of maintenance, however, and need to be treated regularly to prevent them from getting mossy.

  • Concrete Paving Stones:

Paving stones made of concrete can be another option to the more traditional driveways. Different shapes of paving stones can create a pretty pattern and they are less prone to cracking than poured concrete. However, they can turn bumpy pretty easily if not installed properly or in areas with poor drainage.

  • Cobblestones:

Cobblestones can bring the quaintness of Europe to your driveway and make it look timeless. While they require minimal maintenance, they can be expensive to lay and repair.

It’s important to remember that bricks, paving stones, and cobblestones all require your original concrete driveway to be removed before laying for them to be structurally sound which can add to your project timeline and budget. 

Rubber Paving:

Rubber paving is an affordable way of doing up your old concrete driveway without having to spend a lot of time and money. 

What is Rubber Paving?

Old tires are often used to make rubber surfacing by shredding them into granules. These granules are then mixed with an adhesive to create a mixture similar to wet-pour cement. This mixture is simply poured over your driveway, filling in cracks, to create a smooth, new, non-skid surface.

One of the biggest advantages to renovating your driveway with rubber paving is that you do not have to spend time or money digging up the old concrete. Vancouver Safety Surfacing’s blend of SBR (Select Canadian Recycled) rubber and EPDM (Virgin) rubber granule mixes come in four colors allowing you to customize the look of your driveway.
