Driveways are often overlooked by homeowners, even though it is still an integral part of your home’s curb appeal.
A well designed interlock driveway in Toronto should be an extension of your front entryway. It not only has to be aesthetically pleasing but must be built properly to avoid sagging and sinking in the future as well as weed prevention.
Our driveways are built with exacting standards using premium quality interlocking pavers and polymeric sand to inhibit weed and resist erosion over time.
Permeable interlocking pavement is something everyone should be considering when doing their driveway or patio. Just recently permeable interlocking in Toronto and GTA area was primarily used in commercial applications for plazas and parking lots to manage stormwater runoff volume, which is now becoming very popular in residential use.
Manufacturers produced fewer options most of which were not exactly jaw droppers. Now permeable interlocking is on the rise. Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute (ICPI) estimates a 5% increase in volume of permeable pavers compared to what was sold last year and expected to be on the rise. Stone manufacturers such as Techo-bloc, Unilock, Best Way Stone, Oaks and many more are now offering options for residential customers that look amazing and will provide value for you and your neighbors. All these manufacturers are available in Toronto, Richmond Hill, Vaughan, Mississauga, Oakville, Aurora and other areas in GTA as our interlocking stone suppliers.
If you have wet areas around your property that are bothering you or perhaps, water from the downspouts Is causing pooling, permeable interlocking pavers help reduce water runoff as well as drain and filter rain water naturally.

What good is Investing in your backyard if you can’t enjoy it because of poor water drainage. Permeable pavers allow the water to drain through the joints that are filled with small sized highly permeable aggregates and down to sub grade of crushed stone.

This type of stone is very durable and requires little maintenance over the years.
