Driveways

Driveaway
 
Driveway paving materials fall into three main categories: solid-surface (i.e., smooth, seamless, even surfaces), paved surface, and aggregate-surface.

Asphalt and concrete are quite popular but suffer from a number of problems in the Toronto climate. There is a strong tendency to crack and fragment after repeated freeze-thaw cycles

Aggregate-surface driveway paving materials include gravel and crushed stone. For residential use these have problems of an uneven surface and loss of gravel due to rain and mechanical transfer (e.g. into your home!)

Driveway pavers lie somewhere in between these two main categories. Although they are individual components pieced together to form a whole, driveway pavers can, if laid properly, form an almost seamless even surface, with no raised areas to give your snowblower fits.  Asphalt driveaway

Another important criterion for driveways is the ability to remove oil and tar stains that are all to frequent even with modern vehicles. Concrete and asphalt stain easily and can be hard to repair without leaving an obvious repair mark. Concrete pavers, on the other hand, can be easily replaced in small areas and the new stones soon blend into the original driveway.
