Thirsty Concrete For Your Enfield Home
Whether it's warm-weather rain or winter snow and ice, precipitation is a constant challenge for your Enfield hardscape. When it rains, the water needs to go somewhere. A large amount of runoff from patios or driveways can flood plant beds or turf areas, giving your living landscape more water than it needs. In some cases, heavy rain can result in damaging erosion. If rainwater does NOT go anywhere, that's a problem as well. Without proper drainage, moisture can seep into cracks in the concrete. The cycles of freezing and thawing can then lead to costly structural damage.
Fortunately, engineers have come up with a unique way to address the runoff issue. Permeable pavers are an innovative building material that can make your Enfield rainwater problems vanish before your eyes. Permeable pavers are made of porous concrete that soaks up precipitation. Absorbed water is then transferred to a reservoir layer of gravel underneath the pavement. From there, the water slowly but surely seeps into the ground or is directed to an established conduit.
This process provides your Enfield hardscape with a sustainable process for dealing with runoff without disrupting the integrity of your concrete surfaces or your living landscaping. Water is removed and sent into the soil in a measured and manageable fashion.
As great as permeable pavers are for dealing with spring and summer rain, they also help combat winter snow and ice. As with rain, permeable pavers give melted snow and ice a place to go. Permeable concrete surfaces also experience quicker snow and ice melting than traditional surfaces. Their unique construction, with the reservoir layer below the pavement, provides airspace that encourages snow and ice to melt at a faster-than-normal rate.
Sooner or later, rain and snow take their toll on your landscaping and hardscaping. Permeable pavers from JCB Designscapes LLC are a proactive construction material that ensures the immediate comfort and long-term durability of your Enfield property.
