The first baked bricks were the ones used in the Roman Empire. That's how old this material is, yet it's still as popular as ever. In fact, many countries in the world, especially in Europe, have brick driveways as their primary choice.
Why not? Besides the unquestionable classic beauty, this material is durable enough to last a lifetime.
Brick driveways can really last forever. Many century-old structures, like St. Martin's Church of Germany, Roskilde Cathedral of Denmark, and Shebeli Tower of Iran, were made from this material.
Besides the obvious durability, brick paver driveways also add high-class appeal to the area. Best of all, paved driveways boost the value of a property in the real estate market by at least 20%.
But all these benefits can be enjoyed only when the perfect brick driveway pavers are installed properly. Otherwise, substandard materials or improper installation will result in a dysfunctional driveway that will be more of a liability than an asset.
Bricks are manufactured by baking them under a very high temperature for more than 24 hours. The result is an invincible building material that can be laid down to be an elegant and durable driveway. These benefits will surely overshadow the cost.
Compared to asphalt and concrete pavements, brick paver driveways will cost you more. When building a driveway, you might need not only hundreds but thousands of brick pavers. Each piece costs anywhere from as low as $0.50 to as much as $3. That means spending at least $10 per sq/ft. On the other hand, concrete pavement costs around $3 to $12 per sq/ft, and asphalt driveways may cost the homeowner from $1 to $3 per sq/ft.
The cost of brick driveways is not the most expensive on the market; natural stone pavers, like cobble stones, can cost $5 a piece. That's $60 per sq/ft. While this is costlier, natural stones are also more impressive for their durability and beauty characteristics.
Natural stones, asphalt, and concrete are common materials for driveways. However, bricks are also ideal, especially for those who want a more classic look, without spending as much as when using natural stones.
Using bricks for any construction is always a labor-intensive job. This is not something that a DIY homeowner can competently do. It is a masonry job that only trained and experienced professionals can handle. Otherwise, the driveway will, sooner or later, develop molds, cracks, weeds, sag and other problems. Look for a company that can handle proper brick paver installation -- just like us. It doesn't matter whether it's a small residential driveway or a huge one for commercial use.

It is/was the best decision we have ever made regarding home improvements on any level. From the planning, approvals, construction, and clean up went exactly how it was supposed to go. No surprises, no hidden costs, no disappearing acts, and perfect execution for the entire project.
Several times over the project, a team member would pull us out side to recommend how something should look or how it could be improved. Not only did this help the vision of the project but most of the times it actually cut costs. What contractor would try to cut costs?!? These guys really look out for the home owner. Whenever the next project comes along I now have only one phone call to make and that is to the team at Dell. My family cannot thank you all for creating this amazing paradise for us.
Dell build me a backyard that is so nice I never want to go anywhere else! The pool and landscaping they designed for us is amazing. The entire staff, from Anthony to the team installing the pool and pavers, were wonderful to work with and extremely professional.
We had Dell install our pool and it turned out better than we thought it would. Anthony laid out his plan for us in the first consultation, gave us a price that included everything so there were no surprises. His workers are highly skilled and genuinely nice people. I highly recommend this company.
They were great - very responsive over phone, undertook a complex spa installation within few days while the owner was not present at home. Would highly recommend!
I have always used Dell Landscaping for my pool or landscaping needs. Most recently I had Dell landscape a small courtyard at my townhouse in Mahwah, the job came out amazing, all my neighbors pass by and cannot believe what a beautiful detailed job was done in this little space.
Respectful and dedicated workers. Although the job ended up costing more than I was quoted It was worth the "extras" and the extra money I paid for the pool. Would definitely recommend this company and their workmanship.
