1. What style suits your home? You want to make a statement, we understand! The entrance of your home can say a lot about you, so use that space to create the best first impression. As you sort through the seemingly endless options, take a look at the style of your own home. Is it modern or classic? European or coastal? Then, take the look of the home back to the design boards to see what brick pavers would compliment your entrance. All of these types of homes would look fabulous with the perfectly paired brick paver driveway. Our sales representatives carry an abundance of pavers to suit all different styles. We have an eye for design—helping to pair the correct stone with the house makes the process that much simpler!

2. What size and strength brick paver do you really need? Many of our clients use their driveways every day, multiple times a day.  Picking the correct paver is a must. When considering the actual size and strength of a driveway paver, you will need to look at options that are used to withstand vehicular weight. Most brick pavers we install on driveways are 60mm or 80mm, depending on the project itself. Stylish and available in multiple selections, paver driveway installations look best when choosing the best paver for the area. Take a look at our driveway inspiration gallery to see how some of the pavers we've installed look in real life!

3. Picking the best Pattern:  Many people are unaware that certain types of brick pavers can only be installed on driveways using specific patterns. If you already have a pattern in mind, like herringbone, you would need to make sure your paver choice allows for that pattern to be laid. For example, the traditional 4x8 brick paver is used much of the time in Herringbone patterns.  Picking the correct pattern and paver combination will ensure your driveway installation looks perfect.
