What You Need to Know About Brick Driveways 

Your brick driveway should be cleaned and washed once or twice a year, and seal it after washing. A properly installed and maintained brick driveway can last decades.

You can install a brick driveway yourself for just the cost of materials (usually about $5 per square foot). A professional landscaper can help make sure the installation is done properly, and can give you creative insight on the best possible layout and design for brick paving a driveway.

Brick pavers can be set in either sand or mortar. Once the base is prepared and the surface is graded properly, water will be encouraged to run away from the garage.

Is A Brick Driveway Right for You?

While brick driveways can be an intensive DIY project, they can still add a significant amount of money to the value of your home. Most people are probably better off having a professional landscaper make their brick driveway.

The various designs that can be created and color options guarantee that you can find something that will compliment the look of your home. Pavers are also easy for people to walk on, making them a good choice for the Montgomery-area winters.
