New Paving Design Unveiled






A 14,500-sqare-foot municipal streetscape was created in the seaside town of Wildwood, New Jersey.


SWEDESBORO, NJ– Paverart LLC, has developed a new, patented process which allows virtually any design to be translated into a field of interlocking pavers.

To achieve the designs, Paverart combines state-of-the-art technology with specially produced colored pavers. It utilizes concrete pavers that are not painted but manufactured using a pigmentation process that concentrates coloration through the wear layer of the paver. This ensures that the colors in the image will last as long as the paver itself.

"We are excited to announce the development of a patented process which can elevate a paver project to a work of art," said Kenneth Bull, Paverart president. "We provide homeowners, commercial property designers and contractors with the ability to incorporate complex images and intricate designs into a colorful and durable paver canvas."

The company recently created a 14,500-square-foot municipal streetscape in the seaside town of Wildwood, New Jersey.

Paverart kits are sold through approximately 60 distributors in nine U.S. states located in the mid-Atlantic, southwest and southeast regions.
