Interlocking Pavers Explained
Interlocking pavers are constructed to connect or “interlock” with the pavers around it to provide enhanced strength, structural integrity and durability.
This is accomplished in several ways, including the materials used in their construction, sometimes by their unique interlocking shapes, but always by packing fine, special sand into the spaces between them. In fact, the sand actually adds structural integrity, which makes such pavers easier to install because no cement is needed.
Interlocking pavers are created using sand, gravel, cement, very little water, and whatever colors are desired. They are relatively impervious to weather so their durability is assured.
Variety & Popularity
The range of shapes, as well as the wide range of available colors, are a big reason why interlocking pavers have become so popular. Colors can be mixed and matched, or an area can be all one color, making a powerful statement. But endless artistic design ideas can be quickly realized because of their unique shapes, wide range of colors, and ease of installation.
It’s frequently advertised that interlocking pavers are “maintenance free.” In the very rare occurrence of a chip or crack, repairs are fast and easy, and there’s no trace of the mishap.
