Concrete pavers are made in a mold the packs the aggregate, cement and sand much tighter than you can ever achieve with poured concrete. This means the pavers are sturdier than poured concrete. Concrete pavers expand and contract with the seasons, but do not crack like slabs of concrete. Joints between the pavers allow for any seasonal or seismic movement. It’s not necessary to add reinforcement material or rebar under pavers to strengthen them.
Concrete pavers are ready to use as a driveway or patio as soon as we set them, unlike concrete, which much cure for several days before you can use it. Pavers have a rough surface that makes them naturally slip resistant. Deicing salts don’t affect the surface of the pavers. You can shovel or plow snow from them without damaging them.
