This type of pavement can be made from concrete blocks or bricks. The interlocking blocks and bricks can come in any number of colors allowing creation of beautiful patterns. Interlocking pavements are flexible allowing them to move as the ground shifts, so they don’t crack like concrete pavements. Interlocking blocks also allow for easy maintenance as you can easily remove and replace damaged blocks.

This type of pavement is an attempt to make concrete pavements look as good as interlocking blocks while retaining all the strength of a concrete pavement. Stamped concrete driveways create the impression that a different type of material is used, such as stone, brick or any other construction material. Stamped concrete driveways are created by pressing molds into the concrete while the concrete is still setting.
Exposed aggregate is one the hottest trends right now. Offering a wide range of colors, sizes, and shades, exposed aggregate creates a special and attractive driveway. Exposed aggregate driveways are a non-slip sealed surface that can last for nearly a decade with little or no maintenance.
