Paving Your Driveway: Beyond Asphalt and Cement

Paving a driveway begins in the planning phase- the homeowners must decide what type of material they want to use in their driveways. Paving a driveway can be a do-it-yourself project, but it is probably best left to the professionals.

Choosing the Materials

It is highly recommended that before you hire a company to pave your driveway that you do your own research on materials so that you are well-informed.
There are four types of materials generally used when paving driveways:

  • Brick
  • Clay
  • Concrete and
  • Natural Stone

The Price is Right

Price should be considered when you are thinking about driveways. Paving a driveway can vary greatly in pricing depending on what type of material you choose to use. In order from least to greatest, concrete and brick would be your cheapest options, then clay and most expensive are natural stone pavers for driveways.
Paving a driveway can be costly not only depending on the type of material you choose, but also the design that you decide to go with and the number of hours of labour required to build your driveway.


Installing pavement to a driveway is costly because when installing pavement, each piece needs to be laid by hand one at-a-time. This can be a time consuming process for pavers and therefore they charge based on the time spent creating driveways. Paving a driveway requires pavers to cut each piece of paving stone to fit together (like a puzzle) into the design that the homeowner chooses. It requires a great deal of precision and efficiency.
Paving opens the door for a multitude of design possibilities. There are a wide variety of colours and patterns available to homeowners. Pavement can last well over 25 years when properly installed in driveways.
Paving a driveway can really add to the beauty of any home and is truly worth every penny spent.
