If you have been considering having your brick pavers installed, keep reading! In this post, we will share the most common uses for brick pavers, the benefits, and our installation process.
COMMON USES OF PAVERS
Brick pavers are an ideal material to use in any high-traffic area around your property. Bricks are a strong material that can withstand a lot of weight and can be patterned in many ways to be eye-pleasing for all who tread upon them. This quality is why brick pavers are perfect for high-traffic areas.
Their interlocking nature makes them more adaptable to the inevitable slight shifting of the soil beneath them, which is another clear advantage.
The most common uses of brick pavers are:
- Garden borders
GET CREATIVE WITH YOUR BRICK PAVERS
When you have your brick pavers done, you can count on the contractor to achieve any vision or pattern you might have in mind, including:
- Running bond
- Running and stack bond
- Diagonal herringbone
- Double basketweave
- Boxed basketweave
- “Jack on Jack” or stacked bond
If the pattern you require is more complex, e.g., a circle, a diamond, or a serpentine way, know that it can still be achieved.
More complicated patterns take more time and labor but often lead to an incredible result. Incredible results are what we at Contemporary Stone Work are after, so call us for a drastically improved outdoor space by working with our professional brick paver contractors.
THE BENEFITS OF BRICK PAVERS
- Improved look of your landscape
- Increased amount of time spent outside
- Added value to your home
- Easier to clean and maintain compared to concrete
- No color degradation or damage
- Resilient – can withstand a tremendous amount of pressure

CREATING BRICK PAVERS THAT LAST
The Installation Process
Brick pavers can last forever, but the importance of proper technique during the preparation process cannot be overstated.
The actual laying, tamping, and filling of the brick is very straightforward and fast. It’s the preparation of the dirt beneath that will take the most time to prepare.
When you hire our team, we work fast, but never make moves towards the next step without ensuring total precision. Essentially, the project is to tear up the ground or existing development. Then, dig a drain (if that is indeed part of the project), and flatten the earth.
Before laying bricks down, we need to ensure the ground is perfectly flat and solid. To protect your property, we will ensure that the ground is slightly graded to bring water away from your property, so you never encounter any flooding.
Once the surface is prepared, our paving contractors can start laying the brick pattern down. Once complete, we will fill the bricks with a sand substance that hardens when exposed to water. It is the perfect way to set the bricks permanently. Setting sand also helps to prevent weeds and insects from walking around on your beautiful new pavers.
THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE BUILDING
At the outset of any project that involves digging or property expansion, it is essential to know whether or not you can build legally. This ensures that the brick paving company can get to work without incurring massive fines down the road because they built something over a gas line without checking.
Building permits and zoning permits can be an obstacle, so that must be sorted out first.
We have done this many times before, so if it comes to light that you do indeed need permits to build, we can help you attain those permits.
