Update or Repair Your Brick Patio
When it comes to maintaining the life of your patio or having to repair it, brick is one of the most inexpensive patio choices. Fortunately for patio brick owners, repair is usually very simple even when it seems like your patio or an area of your outdoor patio is too far gone. Many people hesitate looking into repairs because it looks too expensive but in most cases the existing brick and the base underneath it can be re-used which can save thousands of dollars. Our experienced contractors at Northern VA Patios & Construction have years of experience in brick patio installation and stay abreast on the latest techniques in the industry ensuring the durability of their work.
Outdoor Brick Patio Design
Second to the color and appearance of using brick, the layout and design is often what people become intrigued by. After installing thousands of patios the Northern VA Patios & Construction crew are also artists in their own right. During our initial consult with our clients, we get a sense of what type of patio they want as far as color, design, shape, size, and what the patio will be used for. We are prepared to create patios of all shapes and sizes whether it is a small space or a patio that spans the width of your home. The design of the bricks can be fanned out, the can be placed in at random giving a more country feel to the look, the brick can be place in circle patterns or square. The brick pattern can make your entire backyard look more formal while the brick pattern can give off a more relaxed feel and look to it. Also depending on your style we can choose from several types of pavers which can take a uniform look with straight, clean lines to a textured and historical look.
Brick Pavers vs. Stamped Concrete
Brick Pavers and stamped concrete are pretty similar in price but one stands to be much more desirable. Brick pavers are crack resistant, they look better and are much more durable than concrete. Stamped concrete is superior when compared to regular concrete but both will still crack after time. Brick pavers won’t. Brick pavers are clearly a more superior choice.
Sealants for Brick Paver
Sealing your brick patio is encouraged but is not necessary. Sealants will darken your bricks, giving them a new or wet appearance. Sealants that leave a flat finish are available. Fortunately the sealant not only enhances the color but also protects against stain.
