Yearly reminder to Winterize your Brick Pavers

Paver Patios, Walks, Porches, & Driveways need protection

Simple and easy paver maintenance can help you avoid long-term repair or restoration costs if you just follow this manageable winterizing tips for your brick pavers. Any steps taken to avoid erosion from snow, ice, and rains will greatly improve the performance & appearance of your brick paver patios, walkways, driveways, and porches.
Letting interlocking pavers and modular retaining wall blocks & caps move freely with winter frost in states like Michigan will allow paving stones to properly flex and reset.  Most homeowners neglect these simple brick pavers maintenance tips and respond by saying, " I will just wait until Spring".  The most stress on any pavement or structure in Michigan and other frost states is the effects of winter freeze thaw cycles.

Here is the link to Winterizing Brick Pavers that I repost each year to remind homeowners of the need to perform these much needed steps to protect their investment.  Any qualified brick paver contractor will offer these winterizing services if you do not have the time or resolve to perform them yourself.
