Brick Paver Applications

Driveways

Driveways are high-traffic areas for both cars and foot traffic. It's also an area that is faced with a lot of dirt and grime including oil, gas, food stains, and outside debris. This is why the choice of material is important; this is also why brick pavers are an ideal choice for driveways.

Pool Surrounds

The area surrounding your pool is a great place to make a statement with your choice of pavers. Safety is also of the utmost concern. You need a material that is slip-resistant, strong, and can stand up to lots of water. Brick pavers are a great choice because they can stand up to the moisture and stay durable. The color is also resistant to fading -- an important option since they'll be exposed to lots of water and sun. Brick pavers can be smoothed and laid out in a myriad of patterns, making it a smart and bold choice for your pool area.

Patios are also smaller areas. With the proper layout, you can make your patio look bigger than it actually is.
