10 Benefits of Permeable Paving for Residential Homes

Permeable paving has positive long term economic benefits over conventional paving like asphalt and concrete.

The University of California wanted to understand whether the use of permeable pavement in future construction plans will lead to a larger monetary net benefit for the university. The study performed the analysis over a 25 year period, comparing different types of pavements covering UC Davis’ campus.

The research paper concluded that, "the benefits of permeable surfaces are far greater than current impervious asphalt and represents a more sustainable and cost effective option for the urban surfaces of UC Davis and the surrounding areas.”
