Used to change the appearance of various outdoor areas, including patios, driveways, walkways, pool decks, sidewalks, and more, paver bricks are available in a wide range of colors, textures, patterns, and sizes. If preferred, you can keep all of the brick pavers the same. For a more dramatic effect, you can combine different colors and sizes.
Although there are multiple possibilities, a brick paver patio is extremely popular. Because the pavers are slip resistant and durable and look very similar to natural stone, they are an ideal choice. As mentioned, you can choose from different colors as well as shapes and sizes. With such diversity, our team at Eagle Rock Concrete Construction can design any scheme you want. Ultimately, a brick patio paver project will enhance the appearance of both your landscaping and home.
One reason that brick pavers are so popular is that they offer a number of unique advantages over decks constructed from wood. For example, brick pavers never splinter, they never have to be stained, and maintenance is a breeze. Even better, brick pavers are environmentally friendly since they conserve natural lumber resources. Brick pavers can also be replaced quickly and easily, so if you decide you want a different look or if one breaks, the transition is seamless.
When properly installed, brick pavers are extremely easy to maintain. In fact, pavers can last 10, 20, or even 30 years without needing much attention. Typically, the only maintenance required involves adding sand around the joints. If a polymer sand is used and sealed when the pavers are installed, new joint sand may never be needed. To clean brick pavers, simply sweep on occasion. If the area gets exceptionally dirty, you can use a standard garden hose to wash them down.
If you are interested in a brick paver patio project, make sure your outdoor space can accommodate items used for family gatherings and entertainment, such as a table, chairs, and barbecue grill, while leaving adequate room to walk. As long as there is ample space, we can install the brick pavers on your behalf. Each paver is usually secured with about 6 inches of base material along with 1 inch of sand around the joints.
Brick pavers offer benefits beyond enhanced aesthetics. For example, if you want to cool the temperature on your patio, we can install darker colored pavers that actually absorb heat from the sun, making the patio area more comfortable. You can also add various design elements to create ambiance. As an example, for a romantic nighttime setting, we can integrate a lighting system at the time of paver installation.
