WHERE CAN PERMEABLE PAVERS BE USED?
Driveways: Permeable pavers are an excellent choice for driveways. They allow rainwater to infiltrate the ground rather than run off, reducing erosion and minimizing the risk of flooding. Plus, they provide a stable surface for vehicles while maintaining a green and environmentally friendly aesthetic.
Public Spaces: Parks, trails, and recreational areas can utilize permeable pavers to mitigate erosion, improve water quality in nearby streams or ponds, and create safer, more accessible surfaces for visitors.
Parking Lots: Large parking lots generate significant runoff, which can carry pollutants into nearby waterways. Permeable pavers mitigate this issue by allowing water to filter through the surface and into the ground, reducing runoff and improving water quality.
Commercial Developments: Businesses and commercial properties benefit from the use of permeable pavers to meet environmental regulations, enhance curb appeal, and reduce maintenance costs. They can be applied in plazas, courtyards, and other public areas.
Patios and Walkways: Permeable pavers can create beautiful and functional outdoor spaces. They provide a stable surface for walking or entertaining while preventing puddles and promoting groundwater recharge. This makes them ideal for patios, garden paths, and recreational areas.
WHY DO PERMEABLE PAVERS WORK FOR LARGE, COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS?
Not only do permeable pavers provide an aesthetic, almost exclusive feel to them, but they are infinitely customizable. Imagine developing and selling a commercial property that has a unique paving system unlike anything else in Nashville. They are quite the selling point. Furthermore, such paving systems are eco-friendly and they fully address stormwater and rainwater. With permeable paver systems, large, commercial buildings do not have to worry about installing rain gardens, water retention ponds, or advanced storm drain systems.
HOW LONG WILL A NEW PERMEABLE SYSTEM LAST?
Almost indefinitely. Permeable pavers have a much longer lifespan than traditional asphalt and concrete. Most permeable paver driveways, walking paths, parking lots, and patios, as long as they are well-maintained, will outlast their owners.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO COMPLETE A FULL PERMEABLE PAVING JOB?
That depends on the size and complexity of the job, but our teams at Permeable Pavers try to coordinate our designers and our crews to appropriate more workers for larger projects. Our goal is never to take more than 1-2.5 weeks on any given project, no matter the size! That is our guarantee to you.
WHY ARE PERMEABLE PAVERS CONSIDERED AN “INVESTMENT?”
A permeable paved surface is considered an investment because it saves the owner on costs in other areas. No more paying for expensive landscaping services such as the maintenance of rain gardens or water retention ponds. No more fixing cracks and refinishing/re-coating a paved surface. Permeable paver driveways, walking paths, and parking lots are more costly than traditional concrete and asphalt, but they save on various other costs in other areas, indefinitely too.
HOW LONG WILL MY NEW COMMERCIAL PERMEABLE PAVER DRIVEWAY LAST?
Decades. Most commercial permeable paver systems never have to be replaced, at least certainly not by the individual who had them installed. Permeable paver technology harkens back to medieval paving methods, ancient techniques modernized with 21st century technology. These systems are built to outlast their owners, providing a permeable surface for generations to come.
