Choose the Right Brick Types and Patterns for Your Patio
Make an educated decision on brick types and patterns for your outdoor space.
Bricks that are often exposed to moisture may develop a white-colored stain called efflorescence. Some people appreciate the rustic look of this imperfection, but if you do not, it can be washed away with a detergent or with a pressure-washer.
Bricks that are laid in very moist, heavily shaded areas can become slick with algae-like growth, which can be cleaned away with a mild bleach solution; treat mold the same way.
