How long does a paver patio last?
You can expect a concrete or brick paver patio to last 25 to 45 years, with an average of 35 years. Proper installation is critical and begins with a well-compacted base. Maintenance is also important, such as regular re-application of a surface sealer and repair/replacement of damaged pavers.
Here’s a graph that compares paver patio life expectancy to other deck/patio materials.
