People install brick driveway pavers for a variety of reasons; the most obvious reason is the aesthetic quality and instant curb appeal it brings to your home. Driveways paved with bricks are simply more beautiful than concrete driveways; they communicate a sort of rustic charm while better defining your space. In addition to establishing a more deliberate sense of quality and pride, brick pavers are far more durable and longer lasting than concrete or asphalt. Brick pavers have a few advantages over the other types of driveway materials including safety, quick installation, varieties of color and flexibility.
One major benefit of pavers is safety. Unlike concrete, the high number of joints and permeable surface of pavers facilitate the drainage of water allowing rain water to flow back into the ground rather than collecting on the surface. Because of their abrasive and textured surface, brick pavers are skid and slip resistant. Brick pavers are also great to use near the almost always wet areas of swimming pool decks and patios.
With our in-house team of talented professionals and our state of the art dustless saws and equipment, the installation process with Paver Solutions is quick, easy with virtually no clean up for the home owner! Brick pavers do not require time to cure and can be used immediately after installation, unlike concrete which can take at least 3-5 days before being ready for traffic. Also, brick pavers can be installed in most weather conditions, unlike other materials.
The reality is that the inevitable cracking of concrete leads to a long-term cost that’s far greater than installing brick pavers, without providing any of the other benefits brick pavers offer. If any of your pavers ever become stained of damaged, it will be easy to fix them. It is quick to remove the damaged bricks and replace them with new ones. Their replacement and maintenance cost is much lower than other materials, especially asphalt and concrete.
Another benefit of a driveway made of brick pavers is their wide selection of style and color. Most materials will drastically fade over time and need to be replaced, however, brick pavers naturally retain their color. With proper sealing, timely professional or DIY cleaning your pavers are guaranteed to withstand the Florida sun and rain with beautiful outlasting color and shine for many years to come.
Brick pavers provide flexibility. They will remain in place better than other materials such as poured concrete. This is because brick pavers are capable of conforming to any movement in the underlying soil. This prevents the pavers from unlocking from each other or cracking.
