If you need a new driveway or patio, or you’re thinking about a landscaping makeover for the yard, consider rubber paving. It can be used for driveways, walkways, steps, patios, pool decks, sports courts, garage floors, and many other applications.
Prairie Rubber Paving in Calgary and Edmonton share why this option is the best choice for your home:
It is resistant to cracking.
Concrete is the most popular material used for residential driveways, walkways, and patios. While it’s durable, it is susceptible to cracking our prairie climate. This is mainly because it can absorb moisture. When that moisture freezes, it expands and can start cracking the concrete. Once you have a small crack, it’s likely to widen with every freeze cycle.
This doesn’t happen with rubber paving. Rubber and polyurethane are very flexible. Their extreme elasticity helps the materials expand and contract with the ground movement, so even movement underneath caused by freezing and thawing will not affect your rubber surface.
It’s resistant to UV exposure.
We might get cold weather in Alberta, but we still get plenty of sunshine year-round. UV rays can be harmful to many surfaces, causing them to become brittle or their colours to fade. This is not the case with rubber paving. It is resistant to UV rays, and will not crack or fade in direct exposure.
It’s versatile in design.
Rubber paving is available in a wide range of colours. You can have it mimic the look of asphalt with black or dark grey, choose an earthy-tone, or get creative with your paving and select a bright colour and pattern! For driveways, it is popular to select a colour for the main driveway, and a different colour for the side trim. You can also choose between a matte or glossy finish.
If you’re installing a pool deck, sports court or playground deck, these colour customizations will come in handy. Check out some of the examples of how you can create a customized surface for your paving project.
It offers great value for the cost.
Rubber paving is less expensive to install than concrete. It can also be installed over your existing surface, which means you will not have to pay to demolish and dispose of your old driveway or patio. Prairie Rubber Paving offers the highest quality synthetic product at the best price possible. It will be a long-term investment, as your paving will last for years to come, without diminishing in appearance or function.
