A paver driveway enhances the curb appeal and value of your home and reflects your pride of ownership.
When choosing a paver product, it’s generally a good idea to complement the main color of your home rather than to try to match it. Then consider borders and accents to draw out specific colors from your home and create continuity.
Don’t be afraid to get creative with your driveway to make it your own. With pavers, there are an unlimited number of design possibilities.
Reasons Pavers Are the Best Driveway Material
- Maximum curb appeal and adds value

Old Problems - New Solutions
OLD PROBLEM – Weeds
When a paver driveway is properly installed, it’s impossible for weeds to grow from the ground below because there is no soil beneath the pavers. However, if the joint compound is allowed to erode, dirt and weed seeds could blow in from above and germinate in the joints.
Sand stabilizing compounds and Polymeric sands are now available that create a more solid joint that keeps weeds out!
OLD PROBLEM – Tire Ruts and Settling
You may have seen old paver driveways that have shifted and settled in places, most commonly where the vehicle tires travel or turn.
Installation methods have significantly improved over the past several decades. Great paving contractors now know how important it is to excavate to a proper depth for the load demands of driveways and to use well-draining base materials to direct water away from the paver surface. A well installed paver driveway today will stay even for many, many years to come.
OLD PROBLEM – Ants
Loose sand makes a perfect place for ants to build a home in between the joints of an old-fashioned paver driveway. Once ants set up shop, they slowly begin to carry your jointing sand away!
New sand stabilizing compounds and Polymeric sands now replace the loose sand that was historically used in paver joints. This solid material is less appealing to ants and stays in place
OLD PROBLEM – Tire Marks and Stains
Turning tires and stains from spills, leaves and other debris, can leave marks on the surface of the driveway that are difficult to remove
Unilock EnduraColor™ pavers offer a tighter surface texture that makes them less likely to absorb stains. For an extra level of stain resistance, look for Unilock pavers with EasyClean™ Stain Resistance. This proprietary technology is an integral surface protection that makes spills and stains easier to clean.
OLD PROBLEM – Color Fading
Pavers using traditional thru-mix manufacturing are made of a consistent mix of large aggregates for strength and finer aggregates with color. After years of wear and tear, the finest bits of colored aggregate slowly begin to wear away, exposing more of the larger, natural colored aggregates. This can give the overall impression that the paver color has faded.
Unilock offers a wide array of EnduraColor and EnduraColor Plus pavers that overcome this problem thanks to a manufacturing method called face-mix. In this process, the larger aggregates that give the paver its strength are buried well below the paver surface, and a thick layer of concentrated color and fine aggregates keep lighter aggregates from show through, even after many years of wear.
