Paving In Manchester - Brick Or Concrete Pavers?

Paving in Manchester, the North East, and everywhere in England for that matter, is at an all-time high. More and more people are appreciating the aesthetic and financial value of having good-looking patios, driveways, and pathways around their properties. But, what paving materials should you use: brick or concrete pavers?

Pavers are flat, thin stones that are used in this process. Both brick and concrete pavers will last for many years. And, when it comes to choosing between the two, it can really be a matter of personal preference. However, both do have their advantages and disadvantages. Clay brick pavers can last, literally, for generations. Sure, they can break and chip over time – but they won't give way easily. They are also easier to maintain than concrete pavers, as they don't stain as much. Bricks also have a timeless style, whereas concrete can wear out over time, but a worn out brick path still retains a lot of charm. And, finally, they also retain colour far better due to them being naturally coloured as opposed to concrete, which has to be artificially dyed. However, concrete pavers are available at a lower cost, making them perfect for if you're on a budget. Concrete also offers far more colour and design options than bricks. And, due to the process by which concrete paving is shaped, the quality of concrete pavers is actually improving over time compared to brick. The concrete cutting process is more uniform, as bricks can have slightly different dimensions due to kiln firing. Irrespective of which one you choose, a good paving North East or block paving Manchester specialist can make both look great.
