Concrete Path Molds: Running Bond Brick Concrete Path Molds: Running Bond Brick
Planning for your new concrete path can be stressful, especially if you are new to do-it-yourself projects. If you are looking for a more traditional design, the running bond brick may be the way to go. Here is a little bit of information on the running bond brick to help with your decision making process.
The running bond brick is common and traditional as far as patio designs go. Basically the bricks alternate from row to row making the top row and the middle row slightly off. This allows the rows to be alternating and not on top of each other like other designs are.
Cost and Availability
The biggest perk is the cost and availability. Because this design is common, you can find the supplies at pretty much every home or building store. Also, you can order the supplies online if you are looking for a specific type of brick. The cost is low as well because the materials are inexpensive and doing the project yourself means labor is free!
Installing the running bond brick design is simple. Laying one brick after another takes a little bit of time and patience, however it can be done by anyone and is pretty easy to do.
