Brick has been used as a paving material for many years. Some historians even believe that the production and use of bricks dates as far back as Ancient Mesopotamia.
When installed properly, bricks will last for many years. The main maintenance concerns include making sure that moss does not grow on the surface of the bricks and repairing any bricks that sink or shift. Many homeowners are drawn to brick because of its distinctive color. Since the color penetrates the entire brick, fading and wearing away of the color are never a concern.
