First of all, pavers are more flexible as they use sand as a foundation. Their increased level of flexibility allows them to shift with the weight of the vehicle, even if it is only minutely. However, this protects them from cracking. Installation costs are also much cheaper, since it simply requires sand and the paving blocks.
Unfortunately, many people still have the impression that a block is unsightly and utilitarian, but technology has advanced significantly and now these blocks can be treated with various render products and techniques, allowing you to create impressive finishes that look a lot more expensive than they actually are.
Paving block structures with mortar filled vertical joints can exhibit a significantly higher load capacity as comparable structures with sand filled joints. For this reason, this pavement construction method is increasingly being used or would be used, respectively, if its performance could be estimated reliably. Specifically, the exact cause of cracks due to cooling in winter has not been fully understood yet and appropriate prediction tools do not exist.
Laying block paving is not an easy thing to do. Many people choose to hire contractors to do the work for them but some enterprising and handy souls find it in themselves to do the work on their own. If you decide to travel down this path it is absolutely imperative that you follow the correct steps in the correct order.
