Paving Bricks And Why We Use Them

Paving Bricks and Why We Use Them

There are several paving materials that you can choose from when it comes to constructing your driveway path. However, in order to enjoy the many benefits of paving, the best choice is to go with brick pavers.

It is obvious that you would want to go with something highly durable so as to avoid future maintenance expenses. Therefore, if you are looking for a paving material that would last long, then we suggest you stick with paving bricks. Paving bricks are the ones that are manufactured to be laid flat on the surface.

They are significantly different from the type that is made to be used vertically for chimneys and walls along with other construction projects. They are curated to last when installed on the ground. Bricks can efficiently endure cold as well as hot temperatures, rain and snow, and foot traffic. Apart from being highly durable, bricks can make an aesthetic difference.

For instance, when they are used in chimneys, bricks are not as exposed to the scrutiny of the eye as are those used to make patios and walkways. This is where the colour and visual factors play their role when selecting paving bricks. It is also to be noted that paving bricks are bigger in size.

In this article, we, at JH & CO Paving & Brickwork, have brought to you the benefits of paving bricks and why are they gaining popularity in the construction industry.

Benefits Of Paving Bricks

You get to enjoy a plethora of benefits when you install brick pavers that make them the best value even when they are compared to cobblestone, stamped concrete, or travertine pavers.

Brick pavers are available in different surface finishes, shapes, and colours, along with laying patterns to complement the architectural style of your home. You get endless design possibilities too. Following are some of the benefits that will help you make up your mind when you plan on paving your driveway or patio:

1. Easy & Quick Installation

The process of installing brick pavers is quite easy, simple, and wonderfully quick. You do not need a lot of time and can get your paving installed under any moderate weather conditions. This helps in managing budget and time issues pretty efficiently. Apart from this, you do not have to wait for a long time after the installation. Brick driveways become functional pretty much immediately after the paving is done.

2. Highly Durable

Unlike concrete, block paving driveways are extremely durable. Bricks consist of hard properties and are resistant to even the harshest weather conditions. They have the ability to bear heavy loads and do not crack easily. This makes them perfect for everything, be it a pedestrian walkway or your driveway.

3. Flexibility

One lesser-known advantage of paving blocks is the flexible integrity. By this, we mean that the brick pavers are able to maintain their interlocking form by adapting to the movement of the underlying surface which avoids accidental cracks. Concrete, on the other hand, is generally poured in place that makes it prone to cracks and inflexible.

4. Aesthetic Appeal

It goes without saying that concrete is the most boring driveway material. On the other hand, the aesthetic appeal of block paving driveways is simply unparalleled and there is no other paving material that can imitate its gorgeous look. We, as brick pavers, will give your driveway an elegant, classy look by paving blocks and bricks. Apart from this, by installing a block paving driveway, you will be adding more value to your property.

5. Slip-Resistant

The natural texture of blocks and bricks makes them skid and slip-resistant. The abrasive surface makes paving bricks the safest option for wet and flood-prone regions. By installing a block paving driveway, you will also be contributing to maintaining the traction of your vehicles.

6. Versatility

In terms of design, you have a limited scope if you plan to pour down concrete. On the other hand, brick paving offers immense versatility. Bricks can easily be arranged into different designs and patterns. Brick pavers can lay out the bricks in floral motifs, chevron patterns, or geometric shapes, the choices are countless. Paving bricks are also quite sustainable for walkways, patios, etc.

7. Variety

Brick pavers come in different colours and are highly popular for their ability to retain their colour. Concrete usually becomes problematic after some time as it gets stained easily. Brick pavers, on the other hand, flaunt natural rich colours that are not added artificially. This property not only makes them stain-resistant but also keeps them from fading under the harsh rays of the sun.

To Sum It Up!

The best part about brick pavers is that you do not need to go through any process of elaborate maintenance to keep your paving as good as new. All you have to do is clean your block paving driveway with a cleaning solution, a scrubbing brush, and, of course, water. Brick pavers are quite easy when it comes to repairs. Your block paving driveway consists of separate brick pavers, so if a paver breaks or cracks. You can always replace that particular piece with a new one.

The overall repair cost of brick pavers is significantly lower than any other paving material. At JH & CO, we offer a wide range of brickwork packages to cater to all your requirements.
