Traditional materials like paving stones and stamped concrete have been used throughout the Lower Mainland here in BC to create decorative stamped driveways for decades. The problem with these decorative pavement options, aside from high cost has been the maintenance liability they impose. You know the deal, uneven settlement of pavers, cracked and pitted concrete and invasive weed growth make what was once supposed to be attractive driveway both unsightly, potentially unsafe, expensive and difficult to maintain.

It produces realistic brick, slate, stone and other design effects on an asphalt base. Combining the flexibility and strength of asphalt with leading-edge colour coating technologies.

Asphalt is probably the best pavement choice for your driveway. Properly installed asphalt by reputable contractors can last for more than 25 years. Think of it this way, asphalt is used in all our Canadian roads and commercial parking lots because it outperforms and is generally less expensive than concrete. The problem with asphalt driveways is not the asphalt but how it is installed and the quality of the coating materials used on the surface. It is important that you deal with a reputable paving contractor with a track record in your community. Reputable contractors are generally pretty competitive, so if you get a price for paving work from someone and it seems too good to be true….it almost certainly is.
