Pro's vs. Con's Price is mainly what I'm looking at
If price is your main concern -- go with concrete. If longevity, aesthetics, durability and overall quality is what you are looking for----go with pavers.
concrete is boring and will crack. Paver are not boring and don't crack.
No comparison between concrete and pavers. The only issues are what you like and what you can afford.
Pavers installed correctly are much more pleasing and attractive than plain concrete. Stamped or colored concrete will get close to the price of pavers and will crack as has been stated. Hopefully it cracks in the "expansion joints" and you don't notice it, but it will crack. Pavers have style, multiple colors, patterns and a timeless look. Concrete is boring when installed and will become less attractive as time goes on. A quality paver installation will add value to a home, where concrete is just a given.
Pavers can simply be repaired if damaged, stained or a need for removal and construction, try that with concrete slabs.
Amen! Esspecially in colder climate.Leave concrete to roads and runways.
