If you’re whiling away the winter by dreaming of the warm spring and summer days you can spend in your backyard, then you’re not alone. Many people want a space that is comfortable and inviting, an extension of their indoor living space to use for gathering, eating, or simply relaxing, and this time of year is when most start dreaming and planning. A brick patio where you can spend beautiful days and evenings enjoying the fresh air and the peace that you’ve created with your landscaping is a worthwhile addition on its own. When that patio is made from beautiful bricks, it becomes an even better investment since brick patios offer several great benefits.
Brick is an awesome choice for your hardscaping needs since it can handle heavy loads without cracking or breaking. In fact, brick pavers tend to last longer than even poured concrete, without the level of maintenance needed alternative materials.
Bricks are naturally beautiful and striking, and you can create a wide variety of designs when placing them. The effect of brick pavers is always stunning, even with a simple straight lay, but there is also an option for creative and unique patterns as well.
Brick pavers offer natural slip and skid protection because of the texture of their surface. When you combine that rough surface with the grout line effect of the joints, the result is a brick patio surface that is level to walk on but won’t develop a slippery or slick surface during inclement weather.
Bricks are made from natural clays rather than manufactured materials, making them a more eco-friendly choice. They also don’t require chemical-heavy treatments, like painting or sanding, to maintain their beauty and durability.
Ease of Maintenance
Compared to some other materials, brick is fairly easy to maintain. You won’t need to sand and paint or stain it like you would a wooden deck or to seal it like you eventually will for concrete and asphalt. Thanks to the great durability of brick, a brick patio can last for generations with very little work on your part.
