Pavement made out of stones is one of the oldest forms of paving. While modern-day concrete pavers have significantly changed from the stone that the Romans used for paving their roads hundreds of years ago, the concept remains the same, a gravel base with an interlocking stone that sits on top. Pavers are a great way to increase the curb appeal of your home. Whether you want to have a plain pattern made of one color and one type of stone or a complex design with multiple styles of pavers, we can do it all. Popular applications for interlock in Ontario include; driveways, patios, pool decks, and walkways.
