A well-paved driveway adds many benefits to your home, from enhancing the value of property to improving the overall look of the home. Driveway paving in particular, is becoming more popular as people turn to creative alternatives to tar and concrete driveways.
Brick driveways can withstand the elements
Bricks used in driveway paving can withstand constant exposure to hot and cold weather and everything in between. Tar however, is not ideal in areas with hot or warm weather. When the material is exposed to hot temperatures for a long time, it warps and becomes uneven, damaging the driveway.
Brick driveways are easy to repair
The whole process of replacing brick pavers is easy. You simply remove and replace the damaged brick paver, making the choice of a brick driveway more cost effective in the long run. Although tar is also easy to fix, you need to have the right technical know-how and get the right mix to properly do the repair.
Tar has numerous environmental concerns
A brick driveway offers an environmentally friendly approach to paving. The materials used in construction can easily be reused for other projects when replacing your driveway. Tar is made from a mixture of petroleum products in a process that involves the release of harmful hydrocarbons, which cause air and water pollution. Tar driveways and car parks also contain coal tar and asphalt cement, which is made from highly flammable cutback asphalt.
