Are you looking for a solution to your paving needs with a cleaner and greener twist? Let us introduce you to porous paving!
This simple material acts just like traditional applications such as concrete or asphalt, but instead of citing a solid pavement, it’s full of tiny passages that let water drain naturally.
Whilst traditional paving may be seen as a more cost-effective option than porous paving, when compared on a like for like basis, and you look out at the big picture, this sort of paving solution actually saves money in the long-run.
HOW DOES THAT WORK?
Consider this, you are laying a car park – the asphalt in the car park itself is only one part of the project. You need to take into account the pavement being angled for drainage, and you have to be sure there are gutters and storm water drains to accept the runoff. Those things require space, they take additional work to install, and they can drive up the cost of a project quite quickly.
In comparison, when you install porous paving, there is no need for additional drainage. The pavement is an all-in-one solution when it comes to draining away water, and what’s better is that porous pavement lets the water drain naturally, instead of letting it run into a tunnel, transporting it across town, and then allowing it to be disposed of miles away from where it originally fell.
Before you start another paving project, take a moment to consider the big picture. Often the solutions are ones you wouldn’t have seen if you were too close to the ground.
