What is Rubber Paving?
Rubber paving is a cost effective way to resurface your cracked and damaged driveway, sidewalks and patios. It is made of recycled materials and can be installed right over your old concrete creating an attractive and distinctive looking surface.
Rubber Paving Is Durable
Rubber paving can actually stretch and contract easily without cracking or pitting like your old concrete driveway. It is virtually unaffected by the damaging freezing and thawing process and can last for years without showing it’s age. The first rubber paved driveway was installed in 1998 by Shercom Industries in Saskatchewan (Pictured here). Even though that driveway is now 21 years old, it still looks brand new!
Installation is quick and convenient
When you install a new concrete driveway, there is a lengthy process involved. You have to demolish your old surface, haul it away, pour the new concrete and then wait days for it to dry. Since you can install rubber paving right over your old driveway you’ll save both time and money. Plus, installation only takes one day and just 24 hours to fully cure, making your driveway, garage, deck or sidewalk fully usable in just two days.
Rubber paving is easy to maintain
Clean your rubber paving easily with a garden hose or pressure washer to wash away dirt and debris. Your surface will maintain that like-new look for years to come. If an area of your rubber paving is damaged, it can be easily repaired by cutting out the damaged area and reapplying new rubber. Rubber paving does not allow fungal or bacteria growth.
Rubber paving comes in a variety of colours
Whether you choose a classic stone or asphalt look or get creative with your colour selection, rubber paving can add an aesthetic design element to your home. Choose from shades of black, grey, brown, red, blue and green! We can help you choose a colour that will best suit your home’s style.
Rubber paving performs well in the winter
Even when frozen, rubber paving provides more traction than other paving products, preventing slips and falls. Your snow shovels and snow blowers will not damage the surface and you’ll find that snow and ice is easily removed from rubber paving. Salt and other de-icers do not effect the rubber, unlike concrete which deteriorates with salt and cracks due to freeze thaw.
