There are several reasons why you should install a porous or permeable pavement system instead of a conventional paving system made of concrete or asphalt.
Porous paving systems are made up of a series of forms containing fill material to create a durable surface that allows moisture to soak into the ground naturally. A porous pavement is ideal for those areas that are exposed to high volumes of foot traffic as well as vehicular traffic. These include walkways, driveways and parking lots.
Conventional paving surfaces are not only more expensive to install than porous surfaces, but they also require complex (and costly) drainage systems. Porous paving, by its very design, can efficiently control rainwater through permeability and prevent flooding.
Advantages of StoneSet porous paving systems
Pavement systems from StoneSet Permeable Paving are simple to install without any need for speciality equipment and can be done by one person. Porous paving can fit around any object without major construction, allowing flexible application.
StoneSet’s porous paving is made of natural stone, typically procured from a local quarry or using recycled stone. Once the binding resin is dry, it creates a stable surface that is not toxic to the environment.
StoneSet porous paving systems can be used to create additional parking space for holidays or events, and then converted into a patio space or outdoor play area. The paving can also be installed over previously paved areas with no need to remove the existing surface.
StoneSet’s porous paving requires only minimal maintenance, can be used just about anywhere and will last for many years.
