Paver Installation
plus-icon1
It’s been a few thousand years since the first roads were built, but there’s still no shortage of opinions about the right way to build them. For one reason or another, materials that have been good enough to get the job done for years come under scrutiny and are summarily deemed to be no longer acceptable. When it comes to building walkways or patios with interlocking concrete pavers, there’s one material commonly used for bedding that’s fallen out of favor (although not with everyone) in a big way: stone dust.

Heated Driveways: What You Need to Know Before Offering This Solution to Homeowners
Business Topics, Paver Installation
plus-icon1
Contractors who are about to take on a paver driveway project have an excellent business opportunity in front of them: the potential to also install a heated driveway system. Many homeowners who live in snowy regions aren’t even aware that it’s possible to rid their driveway – and even their front walkway and steps – of snow and ice buildup without ever having to shovel again. But before a landscape contractor can convince homeowners to hang up their shovels for good, they need to know the radiant heating options for driveways, how to install them, and the kinds of pavers that will work best for the system being put in place.
