Pavers are made by pouring concrete into forms or molds to create uniform blocks in an almost endless variety of shapes, sizes, and colors. The individual blocks are known as “bricks,” not to be confused with traditional red clay bricks. Brick pavers have the durability, strength, and versatility of concrete without many of the pitfalls of poured slabs. Surfaces made with brick pavers have many natural joints, so your Rockford brick paver landscape features will be resistant to cracking. In fact, because they are laid on sand bases, the structural integrity of brick paver surfaces actually increases over time. Their resistance to cracking is a huge advantage in areas with severe freeze-thaw cycles like Rockford, IL and the surrounding areas.
Brick pavers are also manufactured to be completely uniform, so it’s easy to find replacement bricks if damage or staining does occur. Unlike poured slabs of concrete, brick pavers make it easy to repair or replace small areas of a hardscape without having to redo the whole surface.
