How Much Do Thin Bricks Cost?

Thin brick pavers are much like traditional bricks, except they tend to be much thinner in size. The thin size makes them easier to use in construction and home improvement projects than a traditional-sized brick. The affordable cost, easy installation and long-lasting durability are all reasons why homeowners use this type of material for a variety of home improvement projects.

The Costs

  • The average cost per square foot of thin brick pavers is about $11.75.
  • At most, homeowners should expect to pay around $14.65 per square foot of thin brick pavers.
  • The minimum cost for a square foot of brick pavers is about $9.10.

Uses of Thin Brick Pavers

There are many different ways in which thin brick pavers can be used. Today, one of the most common uses is to build a patio. The thin material makes excavation for building a patio much easier than if it were done with thicker-sized bricks or other thick materials such as stones. There are many different designs that can be accomplished using thin brick pavers, making them a versatile option as well. Thin brick pavers come in a variety of colors, so they can also be mixed and matched to create a truly unique appearance.

Thin brick pavers are commonly used for paving exterior walkways and, in some cases, for landscaping purposes. Essentially, any paving project can be suited for thin brick pavers as a way of saving money and still ending up with a great-looking finished project.

Types of Thin Brick Pavers

Brick pavers do not vary much in size or thickness, but homeowners can choose from a variety of colors. Red, tan and brown bricks are the most commonly seen in patios and decks. Additionally, home owners can choose whether they want a smooth or rough surface. Generally, areas with a high level of traffic do better with smooth bricks while rough bricks can be aesthetically pleasing on a wall or as the border of a gardening area.

Advantages of Thin Brick Pavers

One of the biggest advantages that comes along with using thin brick pavers is the fact that they are among the most affordable paving options on the market. Their thinness is part of what makes them so affordable; compared to a standard-sized brick, they are only a fraction of the thickness and thus only a fraction of the cost. Homeowners who want to get a paving job done for a fair price can benefit from using this material. In many cases, homeowners can get an entire thin brick patio done for under $2,000, including labor and installation costs.

Another advantage of thin brick pavers is the ease with which they can be installed. This is mostly due to their small size, which means less digging and less excavation in order to install each brick. Furthermore, the simple shape of the bricks makes creating a perfectly square patio or other surface easy, often requiring no cutting of the materials. It is recommended that homeowners stick with a professional company to install the bricks, but the project can usually be done in a short period of time. The end result is a less expensive installation for the homeowners. 

Disadvantages of Thin Brick Pavers

Unfortunately, no paving material comes without at least a couple of potential drawbacks. For thin brick pavers, the main drawback is the fact that they can shift in the ground over time. Because they are so thin, they typically do not have as strong of a footing in the ground, so it is easier for them to become dislodged or otherwise damaged. Frequent foot traffic, heavy rain fall and other common factors can make the thin brick walkway or patio unlevel over time, so regular maintenance is typically required.

Furthermore, due to the pavers' thinness, this material also tends to be less durable than other types of pavers. It is more prone to breaking and cracking, especially in areas where temperatures are extreme throughout the year or when a large amount of weight is placed on the brick. It is also not uncommon for weeds and moss to grow up between the bricks, which can be a drawback for homeowners who do not desire that look.

Cost Considerations

While budgeting based on average costs is important, homeowners should realize that there are many different factors that can influence cost overall. For starters, the size of the patio or walkway being laid down can be a large influence. The average patio is around 125 square feet, but some homeowners may want to go larger or smaller. Taking the time to measure the desired size and convert it into square feet is a good way to get started in determining cost.

The amount of digging and leveling that will be necessary to install the thin brick pavers is another important consideration to keep in mind. The more digging is necessary, the longer the installation will take, and the more expensive the project will be. Homeowners with more flat and level property can typically expect a lower price than homeowners with hilly property.

Finally, it is important to find out whether or not labor and installation is included in the overall quoted price. Most companies and contractors do include this as part of the cost, but not all do. In situations where this is not included, homeowners may have to shell out an additional $500 to $1,500, so this is important information to have before agreeing to any project.

In general, the best way to secure a fair price on a thin brick paving project is to start by finding reputable companies in the area that perform this type of work. Reading online reviews or asking neighbors for recommendations when it comes to brick pavers can help homeowners to find experienced professionals that they can trust for the job. From there, taking the time to contact each company individually for a quote is a great way to determine which company will perform the work for the lowest price.
