Interlocking stone pavers vary by color, brand, thickness, and pattern.
For driveways, homeowners may want to consider darker colors because marks from
tires are significantly more visible on light colored interlock pavers.
The most popular paver stone brands are Unilock, Techo-Bloc, Oaks, and Permacon.
Each brand has its own budget and high-end versions of paving stone. In general, Unilock and
Techo-Bloc are more high-end with better quality and expensive prices. Oaks and Permacon are more
affordable while still maintaining a decent quality.
Stone pavers for driveway must be at least 2.75' (70mm) inches thick and can be as thick as
3' (80mm) for larger vehicles. In comparison, for backyard patio 1.75' (45mm) thick paver stones are enough.
Word of caution not to use cheap interlock stones under $5 per sq ft. Unless the price is good due to a seasonal
discount, the cheap paver stones are usually not worth it because they may chip off or crack.
