Pavers are manufactured to meet the American and Canadian Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards. These standards state that the pavers have to be least 8,000 psi, which is approximately four times stronger than concrete and ten to twenty times stronger than asphalt. They are built to stand up to the roughest conditions, from shifting soil to extreme heat or cold.
Pavers don't expand due to moisture absorption, which could cause traditional paving methods to lift. Therefore, frost damage is virtually non-existent as joints between the pavers absorb the damaging powers of frost by flexing without cracking.
Other forms of paving, including asphalt and stamped concrete, prove to be inferior in these aspects for many reasons.
