Paver patio's & driveways

Paver Patio & Driveways
Denver brick  dry set pavers    Denver brick paver walk ways and patios are becoming more and more popular each year. Our customers like the appearance, texture and charm of the many styles and colors offered in brick. As with almost everything, brick pavers do require some maintenance to stay looking nice. Each year we suggest our customers sand the joints in their brick. Sanding the joints will help prevent erosion between bricks. Erosion between brick joints exposes the compacted base material and can lead to settling. Without sufficient joint sand, brick pavers can and will settle over time. The expansion of ice and snow as it freezes during a Colorado winter is enough to cause movement in brick pavers. Remember, moisture and water can be detrimental to a brick paver walk or patio. If you keep the joints sufficiently sanded you can help prevent brick movement and settling.

   Another  type of sand that is very popular and durable is called polysand or polymeric sand. Polysand has a bonding agent (polymer) in it that helps keep it in place and is resistance to moisture & bugs.

First off I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Thank you!
