Dramatic Brick Paver Front Entryway Transformation in Glen Ellyn, Illinois

At Mission Brick Paving, our focus on quality and craftsmanship extends through every project we undertake, from lavish patios to elegant brick paver walkways. Today, we’re excited to showcase a recent transformation that has significantly enhanced the curb appeal and property value of a client's home in Glen Ellyn, Illinois. The transformation involved replacing an outdated and misaligned cement walkway with sophisticated Bristol Valley pavers in a rich chestnut color, provided by Unilock.

The Challenge

Our client’s original front entryway featured an old cement path, overlaid with a thin veneer of brick. Not only had the materials worn out over time, but the pathway also presented unappealing angles and curves that detracted from the home's overall aesthetics. The challenge was not just to replace the walkway but to enhance the entrance’s functionality and appeal, making it a worthy introduction to a beautiful home.

The Vision

The vision for this project was clear: create a straight, 90° brick paver walkway that aligned symmetrically with the house and the front door, transforming the entryway into a more welcoming and visually appealing approach. This required a design that would complement the architectural details of the home while also increasing its curb appeal and market value.

The Process

The transformation began with the removal of the old materials. Using a jackhammer, our team meticulously dismantled the existing cement and brick veneer, ensuring that the base was perfectly prepped for the new installation. This stage was crucial, as it set the groundwork for a durable and aesthetically pleasing walkway.

Next, we chose Unilock Bristol Valley pavers for their durability and beautiful finish. The chestnut color was selected to harmonize with the home’s exterior palette, offering a warm, inviting tone that enhances the natural beauty of the property. The Bristol Valley pavers are known for their rich coloring and smooth, subtle texture, which mimic natural stone and complement any outdoor decor.

Installation Excellence

Laying the pavers required precision and attention to detail. Our skilled craftsmen ensured that each paver was perfectly aligned, creating a uniform and orderly path that leads straight to the front door. The new walkway design not only corrected the previous layout’s awkward angles but also provided a strong geometric symmetry that accentuates the home’s architecture.

Before and After: A Visual Testimony

The difference between the before and after conditions of the entryway is stark. The original pathway, with its worn materials and unattractive design, gave the home a dated and neglected appearance. In contrast, the new walkway, with its pristine pavers and symmetrical layout, has revitalized the entire facade.

The before and after photos highlight the transformation, showcasing how the new brick pavers and layout make the entrance look more spacious and welcoming. It's a testament to how much impact a well-designed brick paver walkway can have on a home’s exterior.

Craftsmanship and Quality

At Mission Brick Paving, we pride ourselves on the craftsmanship and quality that go into every brick paving project. The installation of the Bristol Valley format pavers was performed with the highest standards of workmanship, ensuring that the walkway will maintain its beauty and function for years to come. Our commitment to using only the best materials, like those from Unilock, means that our clients enjoy enduring quality and style.

Enhancing Curb Appeal and Property Value

The renovation of the front entryway not only enhanced the home's curb appeal but also contributed to an increase in property value. A well-designed, high-quality walkway makes a powerful first impression and sets the tone for the rest of the property. It’s an investment that pays off not only in aesthetic pleasure but also in financial returns, as curb appeal is a significant factor in a home’s marketability.
