Interlocking driveway pavers are the most durable, most cost effective, and most dynamic driveway surface available.
They can be designed and installed to be unique to your home, they're great for any type of climate and most interlocking driveway pavers manufacturers offer a lifetime warranty.
However, the most important aspect of the installation of interlocking driveway pavers is hiring the right contractor to install them.
Anyone... literally anyone can get into the business of installing interlocking driveway pavers. No experience, little experience or a lifetime of experience... it doesn't matter.
Now, we're not demeaning the good, honest interlocking driveway pavers contractors out there. Not one bit. There are some very honest, hard working people in the driveway pavers business.
However, because it is such an easy business to get into, there are many inexperienced and unethical driveway pavers out there. Contractors that start up their business and within a couple of years, a couple of months or even just weeks, their out of business. They're here today and gone tomorrow.
As a result, they leave many homeowners with poor work and warranties that are worthless.
Think about it. The warranty a company offers is only as solid as the company. Anyone can offer a great warranty, but not everyone can stand behind it. Accordingly, that's very important when it comes to driveway pavers.
Interlocking driveway pavers are justifiably the most expensive driveway surface available. If you're going to spend the money for interlocking driveway pavers, making sure the company is stable, have adequate experience and will be around to honor their warranty. Subsequently, these 3 things should be at the top of the list when choosing between companies.
There is little or virtually zero regulation of driveway pavers installation. It can be easy to hire the wrong contractor. Even worse? Get taken by a contractor who's learned how to profit immensely with common interlocking paver scams.
The worst part? Unfortunately, most people don't even realize it until it's too late and the company is long gone and either out of business or in a different state.
Think about it... how many Interlocking Paver Driveways does the average homeowner purchase in a lifetime? One? Maybe 2?
Incidentally, this results in most of us not being up to speed about proper driveway paver installation techniques. Simple, basic techniques that will help to make an interlocking paver driveway last any significant length of time.
Unethical contractors know this. They know most of us don’t understand driveway paver installation which makes it easier for them to try to take advantage of unsuspecting people.
Additionally, they know that when we ask them questions, they can reply with answers we want to hear rather than giving us the honest answers we need. They attempt to mislead us with simple, vague answers or deflect our attention in an attempt to earn our trust.
For instance, they’ll assure us they’ll do an excellent job for a far better price than their competitors, but conveniently leave out the most important details. Significant details the average person wouldn’t know or even think to ask. As a result, when they perform the work, they cut corners on quality to save time and expenses to increase profits.
Of course, they do the job just good enough to last long enough to meet their so-called warranty. By the time we realize what’s happened, these contractors are already long gone with our hard earned money!
It may be an obvious answer to a silly question but, which would you rather have in front of your home?
A new interlocking paver driveway that’s
installed properly and lasts a lifetime?
Or a driveway that plagues you with problem after problem
requiring countless repairs year after year?
During our decades in the driveway business, we've seen poor driveway pavers installation time after time after time. Imagine paying tens of thousands of dollars hiring a company to install your driveway only to end up with an eyesore in front of your home?
Rather than pulling up to and seeing the beautiful driveway you imagined, you pull up to a beat up mess. Each time you do, you're constantly reminded of being taken advantage of. It can happen and has happened to many, many homeowners.
As a result, we receive thousands of inquiries from homeowners wanting to know about interlocking driveway pavers companies. Not only do they wan't to know if they're good companies and if they have good reputations, but they want to know about they're experience.
Unfortunately, the same problems can occur with inexperienced driveway pavers contractors as well. Inexperienced contractors may have good intentions and want to do the job right, but if they lack the experience needed for quality oaver installation, we run just as big of risk as hiring an unethical contractor.
Consequently, a poorly installed interlocking pavers driveway due to lack of experience can cause just as many headaches and disappointment. And the problem is we still end up with a driveway that looks patched with inconsistent colors that can't be solved. Even with time.
Therefore, putting too much trust in an inexperienced contractor just isn't worth it either.
But the mistake that tops them all? Hiring a contractor who's sole intention is to rip homeowners off! Don't mistakenly think this doesn't happen. It does and it will if you're not careful.
