Interlocking Concrete Pavers
If you’re dreaming of a new outdoor space that’s attractive, long-lasting, and easy to maintain, add interlocking concrete pavers to the top of your to-do list. Interlocking concrete pavers come in a huge range of design colors, patterns, and shapes to help you create an outdoor space that’s everything you want it to be, from vintage to classic to ultra-modern. Regardless of the age and style of your home, there’s a concrete paver out there to complement it nicely
What Are Interlocking Concrete Pavers?
Interlocking pavers are ones that have been manufactured to fit tightly together. Because of this, they’re more durable than other types of pavers, and may be suitable for placement in driveways or even commercial areas, where foot traffic or parking frequently occurs.
When you complete a project with interlocking pavers, you create a unified look. This is part of what makes them ideal for large projects. When you stand back and view an outdoor area that has been designed using interlocking concrete pavers, you notice the overall appearance of the space, instead of each individual paver.
Modern renditions of cobblestone streets, paved plazas, and many courtyards are prime examples of the use of interlocking pavers. But they’re also beautiful and durable choices for residential design.
Why Choose Concrete Pavers Over Other Options?
What Does It Mean
to Be ICPI Certified?
ICPI is an acronym for the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute, and professionals who are ICPI certified have earned approval for their abilities to install this type of segmented concrete. It’s not easy to become ICPI-certified. To earn this professional distinction, installers must attend an ICPI-approved course, pass an exam, and complete a minimum of five projects and 10,000 square feet of installation within five years of completing the course. They can then apply to become ICPI-certified.
Installers who hold this prestigious certification have proven their skills and mastery in the manipulation of interlocking concrete pavers. When you’re searching for a professional to help you create your own outdoor space using segmented concrete, make sure you choose a technician who has earned their ICPI certification.

Compared to paving, paver installation does have higher upfront costs, but it lasts 3-5X longer than poured concrete
Cheaper upfront costs, but should be replaced every 10 years if you care about aesthetics
If one of your interlocking pavers were to crack, you only need to replace that one paver to restore the space to “like new”
Can be repaired, but it looks repaired
