Brick Paving Stone Driveways

Brick Pavers – Driveway Design and Installation

When considering a new driveway, cost is usually the first thing people consider. But besides cost, other factors such as maintenance, durability, aesthetics and longevity also weigh in.

Brick pavers are an option that offers many benefits for your property. Although the initial cost of installing pavers is usually higher than concrete or asphalt, in the long-run, pavers offer financial value as well as little to no annual maintenance. In addition, brick pavers provide tremendous curb appeal and real estate value to your property.

Concrete Driveways

Concrete Installation

When considering a new driveway, cost is usually the first thing people consider. But besides cost, other factors such as maintenance, durability, aesthetics and longevity also weigh in.

New concrete is an option that offers many benefits to outdoor spaces. It’s usually less expensive to install than brick pavers and can last for many years. In addition, new concrete installation provides curb appeal and real estate value to your property.

Flawless Masonry specializes in all aspects of poured concrete. We’re equipped with the best concrete materials and craftsmen available.

As a homeowner, you should understand the difference between “RCA” (Recycled Concrete Aggregate) and “R-mix-RCA”. “RCA” is 95% concrete, and the preferred material used as a base beneath paving stones and bricks. State-approved RCA provides excellent drainage, compaction and resistance to settling.

On the other hand, “R-mix-RCA” is a mix composed of dirt, clay, brick, asphalt and less than 50% concrete. This “mix” is a way for recycling plants to dispose of poor quality aggregates. R-mix-RCA is extremely low in cost and is prone to settling, buckling, water retention and unsightly weed growth between joints.

Flawless Masonry installs only State-approved RCA composed of at least 95% concrete.

 

Asphalt / Blacktop Driveways

New Asphalt / Blacktop Driveway Installation

When considering a new driveway, cost is probably the most influential part of your decision. But besides cost, other factors such as maintenance, visual appeal, climate, durability and longevity also weigh in.

New asphalt installation is an option that offers many benefits to homeowners. It’s less expensive to install than concrete or brick pavers and can last for many years, especially when maintained with annual seal-coating. In addition, new asphalt / blacktop provides curb appeal and real estate value to your property.

Brick pavers can also be added as a beautiful accent to asphalt driveways along the edges and foot of the driveway (also known as the apron). If your budget doesn’t allow for a brand new driveway installation, seal-coating is another option to improve your existing driveway and extend its longevity.
