A Quick Look at the Pros and Cons of Brick Pavers

A Quick Look at the Pros and Cons of Brick Pavers

Brick paving stones are just one of many types of pavers. They’re made of clay and are bigger and heavier than the bricks most people think of when they hear the word. They’re a popular choice for many types of hardscaping, including driveways, walkways, patios, and more. Of course, there are advantages and drawbacks to every type of paver. Everyone has to consider their priorities, budget, and taste to choose the perfect material for their home improvement project. To help, here’s a look at some of the most important pros and cons of brick pavers.

Pros of Brick Pavers

  • Lower cost than most types of natural stone pavers
  • Offers a classic, stately, elegant look (that tends to best complement older homes with other brick elements)
  • Highly durable and long-lasting
  • Fade-resistant and hold their color well for a long time
  • A low-maintenance and stain-resistant option (sweep them, or clean them with some soapy water when necessary; should a brick paver become damaged, it’s easy to replace)
  • Eco-friendly because they’re made from a renewable resource (all-natural clay), they don’t need to be replaced for a long time, and they’re reusable

Cons of Brick Pavers

  • A more costly material than some alternatives, like poured or stamped concrete and outdoor tiles
  • Due to variations in sizing, they’re harder to install, so there are also higher labor costs associated with brick paver hardscaping
  • Few variations in color, texture, size, and shape mean limited design options
  • Require re-sealing about once every three years
