Do you have a vision for what you’d like the patio floor (aka “hardscape”) to look like? Thanks to brick pavers and inlays, VistaPro can make your vision a reality, bringing your dream space to life.

Brick and Inlay Overview

But wait– maybe you’re wondering… what are “brick pavers and inlays?” Most people are familiar with walking on bricks underneath their feet. Brick pavers are the bricks that create the floor of whatever area you want– the patio floor, for example. Inlays are designs that break that monotonous brick up with special designs that stand out from the bricks around them. You could call this “interlocked paving,” which actually dates back to Roman times.

So, instead of using concrete, asphalt or natural stone, you could cover the floor of your patio with brick pavers and inlays. Why do this? Well, it’s an elegance thing– increasing the value of your home. In general, they look outstanding. They’re not run-of-the-mill. It’s your way of showing a bit of your personality through what’s underfoot, too, especially if you pick an inlay that suits your personality– like a starburst or sunshine. When guests come over, they marvel at the brick and design(s) incorporated into it. In one word, it’s “special.”

Pavers and Inlays Durability and Flexibility

Meanwhile, brick pavers are good for patios because they’re both durable and flexible. Pavers don’t crack and they can handle movement underneath them, so root growth, frost, erosion and even earthquakes don’t bother them much. Because brick pavers can allow water to drain through, they’re eco-friendly. And they’re versatile, too– choose from different textures and styles for the look you most prefer.

Easy to Move and Repair

What about repairs? If a paver gets broken or stained, here’s the good news– it’s easily removed and replaced. Unlike concrete/asphalt, where you’d get an awkward look making a little repair (unless you decide to replace the entire surface), brick pavers are kind of like Legos– take one out, replace it with another, and the whole thing still looks good. Plus, if someone needs to make underground repairs (to pipes/cables below the surface), a couple bricks can be temporarily removed to do so.

Weather Resistant

People like VistaPro’s brick pavers and inlays because they resist deterioration from deicing salts, and their physical properties allow them to last quite a long time, continually looking good to all those who see and use them.

Visual Appeal

Brick Pavers and Inlays With inlays, it’s a way of breaking up a monotonous look. So perhaps the bricks get placed going in an opposite direction where appropriate, or they’re colored in a certain way. Maybe you want your family’s crest represented? How about adding something fun, like a graphic or artistic-looking “thing” you like underfoot, such as a dolphin or flower? Inlays are kind of like tattoos for your patio. What kind of creative designs might you like to see underfoot?

If you’re going to have to look at your patio, you might as well have it look the way you want it to. Therefore, request a free consultation with VistaPro to determine what your patio could look like with some work done. Much like you get a haircut or lose weight to change your overall look, things like brick pavers and inlays can help transform your patio space for a brand new, fresh look.

Rather than have to deal with unsightly cracks that can happen with poured or stamped concrete, and instead of using blacktop which gets really hot and looks cheap, you should consider brick pavers and inlays for your patio. See some of VistaPro’s quality work here.
