Brick pavers are a highly used fixture in residential and commercial buildings particularly for landscaping purposes. Not only are they the less expensive choice, they are, more importantly, durable even under extreme circumstances; and because are made from natural clay, they are certainly environment-friendly.

A popular outdoor setup for homes is a patio and it’s one that would benefit loads from brick pavers. You may need help in building an entire patio but you can save a whole lot of time by doing the cutting of brick pavers by yourself.

It’s easy.

There are many tools you can use to cut brick pavers, but a good diamond blade fitted to a hand-held circular saw should be more than good enough. In fact, it is the best choice out there especially for a DIYer as the diamond blade will allow for a smooth and effortless cut.

  1. Be sure you have the right kind of diamond blade affixed into the circular saw. To be sure, you can always ask your local store personnel.
  2. To make sure you won’t cut our work surface, see to it that the cutting depth of the circular saw is ¼ inch less than the thickness of the paver.
  3. Using a ruler and a writing material, measure the paver and put markers on where it is to be cut.
  4. Now turn the circular saw on and do the cutting. Remember to start slowly and follow the markings you did. Carefully power down, and when you’re done, check the brick if it is cut perfectly as needed.
