Choosing Brick Pavers For Your Birmingham Yard

As the season shifts to fall, you may be considering having a final addition added to your Birmingham home before winter hits. The cooler weather means that more people are staying home and with certain additions to your yard, you can still enjoy being outside. Using brick pavers for your next addition not only helps you create a stunning look but can be a practical addition to any yard.

The Benefits of Brick Pavers

Brick pavers are a durable option that can withstand the extreme weather that Michigan winters can bring.  Maintaining structures created with brick pavers is a simple process.  Simply seal brick pavers with a water-based sealant to protect your brick pavers from discoloration or stains. Once sealant has been placed, it generally won’t need to be reapplied for between 3 to 5 years.

If over the years, your brick pavers do become damaged, the damaged brick pavers can be replaced, rather than having to replace the entire structure.  While durable and low maintenance, brick pavers also can create a beautiful and custom look for any addition to your home. Just because you’re choosing the practical option doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice the appearance of your yard!
