Benefits of Having a Brick Paver Installed
There are very few items that can transform the look of your property for the better like brick pavers. They have the unique ability to give the property a look that is a refection of your personality while providing many benefits at the same time. They not only come in a large assortments of sizes, they come in colors that will surely match the color combination of your home decor. Here are just a few of the benefits of having a brick paver installed.
When your driveway was installed on the property, chances are it was concrete and has suffered over the years. The older the driveway gets, the harder the surface looks. Stains from trees, vehicles, and animals can really give that driveway a weathered look that is not appealing when you first pull up on the property. Chips, cracks, and stains are all apart of cement driveways that homeowners simply live with year after year. When you have a brick paver driveway installed, the entire look of the property changes for the better.
The first benefit of your new brick paver driveway is that any cracks or chips in the pavers can easily be fixed. Chances are you will have plenty of extra pavers when the job is complete, the perfect solution for when you need to replace one or two of the pavers due to damage. They simply need to be pried out of the ground and replaced with a new stone. The repair is quick and best of all no one will even notice a paver was removed and replaced.
The stains from birds or trees can easily be removed with an occasional power washing. Rather than having to do the entire concrete driveway to keep a consistent color, the brick paver driveway is a breeze to clean. Simply power wash the area that has stains and you will not even need to be concerned with the rest of the driveway. These pavers come in dark colors, so you will be able to remove any stains quite easily without leaving any trace of debris behind.
The brick paver driveway can also help to increase the curb appeal of your property in that no two driveways will ever look the same. These unique pavers are all one of a kind, and depending on the size or color, you could create a layout that is completely unique to any other in your entire neighborhood.

Build A Brick Paver Patio Today (And Maybe Tomorrow)
Looking for a way to transform your yard? Installing a brick paver patio is an easy, simple and quick way to turn your backyard from ordinary to the envy of the neighborhood. All it takes is a little know-how, patience and planning, and the right tools and supplies. In just a day or two, you’ll have the perfect place for summer barbecues, quiet fall evenings and sunny spring afternoons.
The most important step of installation comes before you begin construction. Proper planning is vital to proper patio installation. You must first pick a plot of land on which you are going to install your patio, and then calculate the materials you will need based on the measurements of your plot. By figuring the area and volume of the plot, you can tell how much of the various materials you will need: gravel and sand to build a base, bricks to make the patio. You will need four inches of gravel, which will then be covered by one inch of sand. Calculating the volume of your plot will tell you how much of each material you will need. The square-footage of the plot will give you the number of bricks needed to cover the gravel and sand.
After you’ve planned and calculated, and marked off the space, it’s time to get to work. The first step is excavation: you will need to dig about seven inches down into your plot. Then, after laying down landscape fabric to keep down weeds, you will refill the area with first the gravel. After you’ve created a smooth surface of gravel, the next step is to lay edging to frame your patio. Next, lay down the inch of sand to finish the base. You are now ready to lay the bricks in your planned pattern. Fill the joints between the bricks with extra sand, wash and sweep the patio, and, voila!
With a helper, the whole process should take no more than two days, or twenty man hours – and you are one step closer to the house of your dreams.
