18 Brick Patio Ideas With Pros And Cons

Spring is coming closer and it’s high time to think of your patio or terrace design or décor, if you have it already. Today I’d like to talk about brick patios because have a cool distinctive look, which can’t be reached with other materials. A brick patio is a great choice for homes that already have brick integrated into their exterior design. Continuing the same material will make the indoors and outdoors feel connected. What are the pros and cons of such a patio?

Pros

Brick that is manufactured today is very durable, and it means that it will stay for long. Brick is more porous than natural stone, and if you spill something or if it rains, the water will be able to quickly seep into the ground or evaporate.

Bricks require low maintenance, sweep them when needed, and wash stains with soapy water if they occur. Pavers do require resealing approximately every 3 years. With brick, it’s very easy to replace the piece that is ruined in case it happens.

Cons

Brick pavers don’t allow for a great deal of versatility in design. They are available in a few different colors and textures, and some variation of design can be achieved by the layout.

Bricks are a costly option. When estimating cost, include the price of sand, framing and any equipment you might need to purchase or rent such as a block splitter or wet saw.

Bricks are here to stay, it will be extremely difficult to change the design after it’s finished. If you want to change the size, style or color of your patio in the future it will be an expensive, and difficult, do over.
