Permeable Paver Cost Benefits

  • While EP Henry ECO™ Permeable Pavers can initially cost more to purchase and install than porous asphalt or pervious concrete, in the longer timeframe, their implementation provides the most attractive and easiest to maintain pavement choice with consistently high in-service durability in a range of climates.
  • A major advantage of EP Henry ECO Permeable Pavers is their modular design. Individual pavers can be easily removed then reinstalled if there is a need for base or underground utility repairs, or installation of new pipes or lines. With no surface patching necessary - as would be the case with porous asphalt or pervious concrete - replacement material is limited to stone jointing fill, reducing costs significantly.
  • EP Henry ECO Permeable Pavers have a high freeze-thaw and deicing salt resistance. Water in a permeable interlocking concrete paver system does not freeze and heave. In contrast to porous asphalt or pervious concrete, complete saturation in freezing temperatures will not damage the system. When snow melts it immediately drains, reducing ice hazards. In addition, EP Henry ECO permeable pavers accept normal snow plowing equipment and require far less de-icing materials than porous asphalt or pervious concrete .

When these aspects are factored into the equation, it's easy to see how the functional versatility of EP Henry ECO Permeable Pavers makes them the cost-effective choice in permeable paving surfaces for municipalities, developers, and property owners alike.
