Are you looking to pave your driveway? Or is it time to repave? When paving your driveway, there are many options and materials to choose from, one of which is brick driveways. If you’re in the Montgomery County, Maryland area, continue reading to learn more about the ease of installation, beautiful designs and other benefits of brick driveways.
Brick Driveways are Safe
No longer will you need to fear slipping or falling on your driveway during a rain storm. Because of their grated texture and abrasive surface, brick driveways are more resilient to factors that may make other kinds of driveways slippery and expedite drainage from rain and snow. Additionally, if you have children or elderly family members living with you or if you live an area where it frequently rains or snows, you might want to consider a brick driveway as a way to keep people safe when entering and exiting your house. In other words, brick driveways pose some advantages that more common paving materials like asphalt or concrete don’t.
Brick Driveways are Easy to Install and Repair
Another benefit to brick driveways is their super simple installation process. With most driveway paving materials (like asphalt or concrete), you need to wait for a few days before you can actually drive on the driveway. With brick driveways, there’s no need to wait. Upon installation, you can almost immediately drive on a brick driveway!
Brick driveways are also easy to repair. If you notice certain bricks are damaged or discolored, all you have to do is replace the affected brick. Gone are the days of repaving your entire asphalt driveway over a few minor cracks.
Brick Driveways are Visually Appealing
One of the most unique features to brick driveways is how visually appealing and aesthetically charming they are. Bricks come in a variety of colors, allowing you to get pretty creative when choosing what you want your driveway to look like. You can even select how you want the bricks to be placed, choosing between designs like a cross hatch design or a braided herringbone design. Take a look at our driveway gallery for some inspiration!
