The 7 Biggest Advantages of Installing Interlocking Brick

When designing a walkway, driveway or patio, the choice of materials can be overwhelming! One popular choice in the Hamilton area, however, rises above the rest: interlocking brick pavers.

Interlocking pavers are beautiful, versatile and make a great statement on your property. Here are seven of the biggest reasons why interlocking brick is one of the most popular materials in today’s landscape design projects.

1. Many Designs Available

Gone are the days when homeowners had to choose between beauty and durability in outdoor landscaping materials!

Besides coming in many different colours, shapes and textures, interlocking brick can be used to create a brick design that uniquely suits each property owner. Whether you want an old world look for your property or something that is more contemporary, interlocking pavers can provide the solution.

2. Made to Last

Constructed out of concrete, interlocking pavers are made from a durable material that will withstand weather, weight and foot traffic.

When professionally installed, interlocking pavers can last over 40 years!

3. Non-Slip Surface

Interlocking pavers’ non-skid and non-slip surface makes them safe to walk or drive on, even when they get wet. This is the main reason why many homeowners choose this material around their pools!

4. Easy to Maintain and Repair

Interlocking brick pavers that have been professionally installed rarely require any maintenance or repairs.

Since the gaps between the pavers are filled with sand or stone, weed growth is minimized. A seal is also created that helps keep the gravel foundation dry, preventing shifting.

Want to remove any dirt from the surface? Simply hose down the area or use a pressure washer for a deep clean.

If unevenness, staining or chipping occurs, repairs can be conveniently completed since individual pavers can be targeted.

5. Quick and Easy Installation

Since most pavers come pre-sealed, there is no need to re-seal interlocking pavers following their relatively fast install.

Plus, your driveway, patio or walkway can be used right away since there is no curing time (unlike asphalt and concrete).

6. Environmentally Friendly

Permeable interlocking pavers help prevent excess water run-off and erosion. Pavers capture stormwater run-off and permeate filtered, retained rainwater back into surrounding soil.

This type of material also traps suspended soils and processes nutrients and oils sustainably.

7. Winter Weather Proof

The paver’s breathable joints created by its interlocking, mortar-less system means snow melts quickly. Any snow removal is easy due to the paver’s smooth surface.

Interlocking pavers can easily withstand Hamilton and surround area’s freeze-thaw climate without any unsightly, dangerous cracks forming!
