Why You Should Consider Porous Paving Applications

Why You Should Consider Porous Paving Applications

Stoneset is committed to providing better paving solutions for the safety of our environment. This has led them to develop a variety of porous paving applications for their clients. These practices allow water to absorb into the ground without sacrificing the convenience and dependability of a paved pathway, driveway or road.

What is porous paving? 

Porous paving uses renewable, local materials and recycled resources in various combinations for the look and feel of hard surfaced areas but with the added advantage of surface drainage.

These practices reduce flooding, run offs and excessive waste products. In order to reduce pollution in streams and waterways, we use a high quality resin to bond the materials together.

The finished product results in water permeable walkways or roadways. This resin bonds with the paving materials creating a hard surface that withstands vehicle usage and heavy foot traffic.

Why would I use this instead of traditional cement paving? 

Traditional cement paving allows water to pool and gather in localized areas. This creates the runoff problems that carry debris and pollutants into the waterways. Impervious cement cracks and up-heaves easily making it necessary to do repeat maintenance. The materials used in the porous paving process allow water to flow through easily. This prevents surface runoffs that destroy topsoil and reduces damages from freezing and shifting materials.

WHY WOULD I USE THIS INSTEAD OF TRADITIONAL CEMENT PAVING?

 

Many communities are looking for ways to increase the health of their environment by reducing the waste and pollution. Tougher building codes, laws and zoning requirements limit the use of impervious materials. This can adversely affect building plans for a wide range of future developments.
