Choosing brick pavers for driveways remains a popular choice. The classic brick is aesthetically pleasing and comes in a wide range of hues, shapes, and installation designs, so you have the option of creating a driveway that looks like it’s been around for ages or one that matches your home’s color and landscaping.
Another practical reason why homeowners choose brick for their driveways is its durability. It can stand up to heavy loads and can maintain its look and structural integrity while lasting for at least 25 years. It’s also easy to repair since you just need to replace the individual damaged driving paving bricks and not the entire thing.
When it comes to maintenance, brick driveways are on the shallow end. You just clean the soiled bricks with a water and soap solution plus a brush or a pressure washer.
All these advantages indeed transcend the expensive installation of the brick driveway. The key, however, to a good brick driveway is a good base and regular maintenance.
