Thinking of making your driveway interlock? Interlock Driveways are durable and will Last decades. The installation process of interlocking pavers creates its strength and flexibility. First, because the interlocking pavers sit on top of a foundation of densely packed gravel and sand; moisture easily passes without causing the pavers to swell or change shape. While stamped concrete is generally cheaper than interlock stone, it won’t last nearly as long, especially during the freeze-thaw cycle of Ottawa’s cold winters. Interlock pavers are well worth the investment because they will save you from plenty of work down the road.
Sealing the interlock driveway is a good idea. If you think about it, placing anything that will be subject to the elements – whether it’s those hot sunny days, or damp, cold winter months – it makes sense to provide some sort of coating to protect it. Without a coating, interlock pavers on your driveway can easily become marked up and stained from oils spills, grease and other marks left from your car. They can seep through the stone and joints making it very difficult to remove. A coat of sealer provides a resistant layer against the staining quality of oil and grease. So anytime you have your car parked on your interlock, there’s no need to worry about it staining the driveway.
I also think that this is a good way to make the exterior of your house look neat and sharp. Not only is it practical but it is very pleasing to see a properly done driveway.
