The Benefits of Paving Applications
The benefits of paving applications on a residential property are they will provide glamour as well as safety at the same time. Paving materials, such as asphalt, are produced with the thought in mind that the purposes of paving applications should be slip resistant in all climatic conditions. Paving sealers are not advised as sealing your paved areas will avoid slipperiness whilst walking on them, however with our extreme weather conditions in South Africa, will create a wealth of costly maintenance.
Asphalt paving is now the most widely used material for the surfacing of our roads and highways. However we are now increasingly seeing asphalt being installed on residential properties for applications like driveways due to its cheaper costs. Asphalt however will not last as long as pavers and cannot be as attractive after installation process. Asphalt applications at residential properties are nowhere near the thickness of roadway installations although there is an illusion that has been created in one’s mind that they are. In the long term, paving products have far more advantages than asphalt. A Paving for Africa consultant can provide more in-depth discussions on this point.
The following benefits are also highly regarded and considered as matter of importance; which include:

- Weather Resistant

They share the same applications as concrete pavers. All the applications can be transformed with elegance, with a twist of a more natural look and feel by using stone pavers.
Paving Stone Colours
Paving stone colours are more plain and basic colour shades and tones because of their natural attributes. There are various colours that will blend in nicely and highlight any location and the surroundings. The most common colours, tones and shades are listed below:
When you select a colour of stone pavers, you should consider the style and colour of your house structure. If you have a dark brick home, consider using a light colour and shade in stone pavers that will blend in better than a darker stone paver. If you have a light coloured house structure then consider using a darker shade in stone pavers. Use your imagination as you can also choose two or three colours in stone pavers for a more colourful and complementary application.
Paving Stone Shapes
The availability of several types of paving stones are as follows:
The paving stone shape you select will determine the pattern and design layout. So, one suggestion when choosing the paver shape is you should consider the size and the shape of the area you wish to pave. Small areas look bigger when you select a large paver shape and for larger areas smaller paver shapes will make the area look smaller. Another great idea is you can select several paving stone shapes for an unusual and eye-catching pattern and design.
