Paver Layers can reate a welcoming and weather reisistance entryway that will last for years. Quality Paving and Design has been creating beautiful, sustainable, long-lasting outdoor spaces for the past 14 years. Kevin Site, Marketing and Design, says' "We work hand in hand with our customers to design and install our pavers."

Why should a homeowner choose pavers over concrete for an outdoor living space? According to Site, "Pavers are known for their strength and beauty. They are three to four times stronger than concrete. Paving stones offer many options for texture, pattern color and even borders. Pavers look better and last longer." Everyone's concrete driveway looks like everyone else's, but with a driveway designed to match your home, your house will be different and stand out on your street.

Rain is an issue in the Pacific Northwest and correctly designed outdoor space with pavers will control and direct rainwater. The water seeps between the stones into the sand and gravel layer beneath then gets absorbed into the ground, which recontributes the ground water table instead of shooting the water into the street. This permeability will ensure be no puddles to navigate when pavers are used.

Installed correctly, pavers will last as long as the house. Concrete or asphalt have a life span of five to ten years.

Pavers may cost more up front but will last longer than other options. And when roots or freezing temperatures wreak havoc with your hardscape, pavers can be removed and repaired one at a time instead of tearing up the entire concrete slab.

Pacific Northwest customers prefer businesses from their own area. Site says, "We are a local company. Most of the pavers used by Quality Paving and Design are manufactured here in Oregon by Western Interlock, near Salem."

If the idea of using pavers appeals to you, Quality Paving and Design can have your space designed and underway in three to four weeks. Site says, "We have long experience staying on top of our scheduling. We manage that very well."

According to Site, "A customer should use pavers to enhance their lifestyle. An attractive exterior space will draw you towards the outdoors and be a living space outside the home. We want our clients to use that outdoor space to unplug from life and plug back into your family."

Paver Layers can create a beautiful outdoor room for Summer alfresco living.
